NEON THE NINJA is a 2D punk rock, action / stealth game that tasks the player with a hit-list of the seven most vile world leaders. Slash your way through everything that moves; dive into neon signs for camouflage; or maybe do a little bit of both (who would we be to judge... that's Neon's job).

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I've recently realized that in order to take this game to the next level I need invested playtesters. I'm hoping that releasing this game as Early Access will help me generate thoughtful feedback in an effort to make this game as good as it can be.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“This game is a passion project of mine and while I'm not working on it full-time I've finished the main mechanics and have a dev schedule that I think is realistic. My current plan is to finish all of the content by the end of 2018.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version will have 8 bosses, levels and upgrade items. I'm launching Early Access with 3 polished bosses/levels/upgrades and will continue to add content to the game through the year.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“3 unique levels, bosses and upgrade items to take on in any order you choose.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“I plan to sell the game at a lower cost during Early Access but there will be no up-charge for future content.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“I'm thinking this will be a fairly informal process. Obviously, I'd love to hear about bugs the community finds so I can squash them. I have to keep an eye on scope when it comes to suggestions for new features but I'm open to any and all ideas.”

March 1st for Early Access!

Hope everyone is having a great 2018 so far! Just wanted to post a formal announcement that I'm looking to go 'Early Access' March 1st. Yeah Boi!

Also if you guys have any suggestions for streamers that like to play niche / retro-inspired games send them my way as I'd like to get the game into streamers hands even earlier. I've been developing a shortlist but could always use suggestions.

About This Game


We’re focused on capturing the SPIRIT of classic games like Ninja Gaiden and Mega Man. We want to put an emphasis on having fun and rewarding skillful play, rather than long tutorials and collecting every trinket in the level.


Neon can hide in plain sight by blending into the bright colors around him. In this 'stealth mode' he can assassinate enemies that are close by.


We want every boss battle in this game to feel like it could be THE FINAL boss battle and be chock full of “OH SHIT” moments. Each boss has two unique phases (no recycled gimmicks or ideas).


A boss select screen that lets players choose the order they’ll take down the bosses. Defeating bosses will unlock different items leading players to develop their own strategy (or googling one).


We’re shooting for "Saturday morning cartoon meets SNES mascot concept art." That is, every character is designed to be visually memorable, and oozing with personality.


It’s only fitting that Neon slays enemies to a soundtrack that equally slays the player. Expect lots of driving guitar-and-synth-based music influenced by the game’s exotic locations.
