NeuroVoider - MrHelmut

Hey Voiders!

Over the past few months, we have been busy on something big. Bigger than NeuroVoider.

We're super pumped to finally share this new rogue-like adventure with you!

Please meet ScourgeBringer! Now available for wishlisting.

Teaser trailer

What's ScourgeBringer?

ScourgeBringer is a fast-paced free-moving roguelite platformer. Help Kyhra to explore the unknown and to slash her way through the ancient machines guarding the seal of her past, and maybe the redemption of humanity.

To make the game, we partenered with Dear Villagers, and we are also very pleased to have Joonas Turner on board! Does that name ring a bell? Joonas was the sound master on Nuclear Throne, Broforce, and Downwell. He will be making both the sound design and the music composition for ScourgeBringer and we can already tell that it's going to be quite something!

  • Get the raw feel of a metroidvania through a fast paced rogue-like.
  • Slash and shoot your way smoothly with fluid platforming controls.
  • Sharpen your skills with a frantic combat system focused only on attacking.
  • Dash forward with other-worldly adaptive music.
  • Defy a dozen of giant bosses holding the secrets of the Scourge.
  • Explore the infinite depths of an ever changing dungeon.
  • Uncover mysteries and alternative routes to find mementos of previous explorers.

If you were early into NeuroVoider, you may remember that the game went through an alpha access, and then an early access before hitting its full release.

We love making games with the community, and for ScourgeBringer we are pushing things forward with an in-game feedback system, a weekly newsletter, and Discord polls!

Stay tuned on our Discord to know when the alpha access will start!

Are we leaving NeuroVoider alone?

Nope! If you have been following the game, you may have noticed that we are regularly around and still patching the game if need be.

Speaking of which, we just pushed an update that improves performance and compatibility (because there's no reason that our progress on our engine for ScourgeBringer shouldn't be backported to NeuroVoider).

You also may have noticed that ScourgeBringer appears within NeuroVoider. If that should ever bother you, you can dismiss it forever (or even start the game with the -noCrossReft launch parameter to get rid of it automatically).

We cheerfully hope that you are going to like ScourgeBringer!

See you on the ScourgeBringer Steam page, where you can already wishlist it and get updates!

Have an awesome day Voiders!

Hey Voiders!

Here's yet another maintenance update!

Two changes here:
  • MacOS and Linux support has been improved, you can expect better performance and compatibility on these systems;
  • An incompatibility with Intel graphics processor has been fixed. Some (not all!) Intel GMA should be supported. Please note that this fix is not magical because Intel GMA drivers are discountinued by Intel. Hence, we can't provide a precise compatibility list (but it's likely that the fix will work on Windows 7 & Linux, but not on Windows 10). Please also note that we officially recommand an Intel HD4000 or more recent (GMA support should be considered as experimental). As a rule of thumb, please refer to this thread if you have an Intel graphics processor:

Hey Voiders!

I just pushed an update of our engine along with v57.11.

It won't change the game but you can expect better compatibility and new gamepads support.

Hello there!

We just published an hotfix for NeuroVoider. No big deal though, it's a compatibility update.

We updated our engine to its latest version, you can expect more gamepads to work and maybe more compabitility toward older computers. We also fixed some typos here and there.

Uh oh voiders!

We're super glad to announce that we released a new game on Steam!

It's called "Boo! Greedy Kid", and it's stealth shouting action game. We made this game in parallel to the console ports of NeuroVoider.

We hope that you are going to like it!

Consider writing a review <3

Being noticed on Steam is super hard, and reviews count a lot in the Steam algorithm that makes games popular.

We would be super super grateful if you write a review (being positive or negative) if you ever get the game. <3 <3

Loyalty discount

To thank you for your ever awesome support, all NeuroVoider's owners will get an extra -10% discount (which automatically adds to any other discount)!

Hey Voiders!

It's time for v57!

No big changes to gameplay but quite a lot of bug fixes to make the game rock stable and faster.

NeuroVoider now also supports Japanese!

Here's the full change log:

  • Japanese localization

  • The Commander skill is no longer in the Unstable random skill rotation during solo games
  • More memory optimization

  • Fixes sound issues on Nintendo Switch
  • Fixes a rarely occurring issue when resuming a save which could make the game to crash during level loading
  • Fixes HP being above maximum when resuming a save from a game saved right after the tutorial level and while being in the first level
  • Fixes a super rare crash occurring when existing the game from a level
  • Fixes an extremely rare crash when starting the game
  • Fixes a micro freeze occurring when the second wave of enemines spawns during the tutorial level
  • Fixes weather particles (e.g. snow, rain...) to silently spawn and stack when the game is paused (this could make the game to severly slowdown when resuming from the pause menu)
  • Fixes a button prompt error on PlayStation devices during the tutorial (R2 was displayed instead of R1 for the class special)

Hey Voiders!

If you like the sound of NeuroVoider, you might want to know that our friend Dan Terminus (the man behind the game's music) has just released his new album!

And it's awesome!

You can give it a free listen on his label's youtube channel:

CDs and double LPs are available on Blood Music's store:

Note that this new album doesn't mean that it's going to be featured in our game.

Hey Voiders!

In our quest to make v57 the most stable version ever of NeuroVoider, we are organizing a bug hunt contest.

This future v57 already fixes all known issues (that are not compatibility issues) except one... one that we are unable to reproduce and therefore fix.

UPDATE: We found the bug thanks to a player report! Thank you very much for participating!

Win a signed PS4 copy

Here comes the contest! We need your help, and we're putting a signed PS4 copy of NeuroVoider on the table. The first person to post instructions to fully reproduce the bug will win it.

EDIT: if you're not into PS4, the winner will have the choice to replace it with 3 codes for game for any platform.

So try to be as specific as possible (how many players? which one have a gamepad? what are their player indexes?). Try to write down your game seed before testing the bug, and be sure that you are able to reproduce the bug based on your own instructions.

Posting a video would help greatly, but is not required.

Bug description

The game may crash in the "build selection" screen (that's the screen where you choose your class and skill).

And that's basically it... we don't have any other information.

It may (or may not) be related to multiplayer games.


  • You must own the game on any platform;
  • Only this very specific bug counts toward winning this contest;
  • We must be able to reproduce the bug based on your instructions;
  • The first person who will post in this thread instructions that allow us to fix the issue wins (do not post in this news comments).

Happy hunting!

Hello Voiders!

We just released a small non-update. There's nothing new!

Wait, what, an update with nothing new inside?!

Not really... this update packs new invisible features that are going to help us track down a couple super rare issues that we wish to fix.

For instance, if you are encountering rare crashes during level loadings and on the skill selection screen, these new invisible stuff will help us to know more precisely what's going on here.
What can you do to help us tracking those down? Play! :) It's as simple as that. The more you play, the more we have information to fix them.

These are basically the very last (and rare) crashes that we are aware of (beside compatibility issues, but the game should show you a message if that is the case).

This update also has a dormant new feature: a Japanese translation. It is being beta tested right now, and once we're good with it, we'll release a new update with this translation enabled!
