About This Game

Nixie is a 2D story-driven exploration game about a robot’s search for a missing human lost in an android space colony. Along the way, you’ll meet charming friends, eccentric rivals, and sinister foes in a story full of twists. Slash, fling, and glide your way through an eclectic world, while enjoying colorful 16-bit pixel art and an infectious soundtrack!

Explore The Android World of Crux Asteria
A vast, diverse space colony awaits Nixie on his rescue mission. Explore a non-linear, 2D environment full of intriguing areas, ranging from the vibrant halls of an opulent gallery, the wild nature of an overgrown bio-dome, the eerie remnants of an abandoned human city, and much more!

Slash & Shoot Your Way to Safety
Though you'll meet some friends along the way, not everyone is happy to see an unfamiliar face like Nixie. Encounters with android soldiers, relentless treasure hunters, and even robotic wildlife make this adventure a treacherous one! Luckily, Nixie's powerfully sharp antennas and long range plasma cannons are ready for battle.

Discover Enhancements Vital to Mission Success
Software upgrades to enhance Nixie's mobility, stamina, and firepower are essential - not just for a successful rescue effort, but for survival. Upgrade Nixie's antennas to fling off of certain objects or to helicopter across large gaps. Power up Nixie's plasma cannons to decimate foes and clear paths to new areas.

-Retro inspired side-scrolling action platforming.
-Attack with both a melee attack as well as projectile weapons.
-Jump, fling, glide, wall climb, and pogo off enemies to traverse each room.
-Customize Nixie's abilities with patches - optional equipable upgrades.
-Discover secrets hidden everywhere - some obvious, some deeply tucked away.
-Meet a range of unique characters, from opulent monarchs to virus infected freaks!
-Immerse yourself in an evolving and darkening storyline full of twists and turns.
-16-Bit style pixel art inspired by Super Nintendo & Sega Genesis games.
-Choose between hi-fi MIDI soundtrack or lo-fi FM-Synth chiptune soundtrack.

Nixie opens his eyes, his memory cleared, and his operating system fully initialized. He is traveling through the galaxy on a small, rather disposable spacecraft, not much larger than his own body. Straight ahead is an eclectic looking space colony, and it will soon become the setting of a secret mission that will spiral into a story he’s not fully prepared for.

He hears a voice. It’s calm, a bit gravelly, but reassuring.

“Nixie, it’s good to finally have you online. My name is Dr. Lionel Abrams, and I have created you for a mission that is of deep personal importance to me. You are being dispatched to the colony of Crux Asteria, a world once shared by humans and androids that tragically fell victim to a horrifying insurrection some 10 years ago. Nixie, we believed every human who ever lived there had either escaped or perished in the dreadful incident, but… that was until just recently. The Union of Human Affairs picked up a rather implausible distress signal. I didn’t believe it at first when they told me, but when I saw the message for myself I was shocked. It was coming from my own son, Linus. He’s still there – alive. Somehow… some way, despite my belief that he had been lost this whole time, he managed to survive! Your mission won’t be easy, but it is simple: find my son and rescue him any way you can. I know I’m placing a great burden on you, considering you’ve just been brought into the world, Nixie, but you truly are my finest creation. I’ve given you the strength and abilities you’ll need to safely return to us with Linus. You will land shortly in terminal 298C of Port Valius. It’s an abandoned import terminal, so hopefully you can sneak in undetected. Please be careful, Nixie, and trust no one. I will brief you further shortly after you land.”

And now Nixie's mission begins, but there's much to learn... both about himself and about the captivating world of Crux Asteria.
