Neon Blood is a neo-noir cyberpunk RPG/Graphic Adventure with a 2.5D aesthetic which combines 2D pixel art sprites with 3D-modeled environments. The game features a variety of puzzles, classic turn-based combat, and precise Quick Time Events. Neon Blood is developed by ChaoticBrain Studios and published by Meridiem.

Meridiem will handle the design and manufacture of the boxed edition of Neon Blood, which will be available in specialist retail stores for PlayStation 5 and Nintendo Switch across Europe in Q4 2024. Fans can wishlist the digital version of the game now on Steam and PlayStation, and soon on Nintendo Switch and Xbox.

The boxed Limited Edition of Neon Blood for PlayStation 5 and Nintendo Switch includes a metallic texture cover, an art book, a printed city guide, and a downloadable soundtrack.

Story Setting

In the year 2053, after World War III, humanity has been reduced to a single macropolis, Viridis, composed of two cities: the luxurious Bright City and the dystopian Blind City.

Axel McCoin, a detective from Blind City, driven by his ideals, rebels against the injustices caused by the social separation between the two cities and the general social inequalities, becoming a symbol of a revolution.

In his adventure, Axel will encounter powerful allies who will aid him in his quest, as well as enemies who will stand in his way, such as Ruby Emerald, who will do everything possible to thwart Axel’s plans.

Features

  • Elaborate and Deep Storyline: Neon Blood features a rich and deep story with a cyberpunk theme, guiding the player through Axel’s journey marked by the relationships he forms throughout his adventure, revealing the different realities of the two cities.
  • Distinct 2.5D Aesthetic: The game employs 2D pixel art sprites with 3D modeled environments, maintaining a visual distinction between the flat characters and the deep environment. The art style highlights the contrast between the purely cyberpunk Blind City and the more futuristic sci-fi Bright City.
  • Investigative Skills: Discover the secrets of Viridis through detective Axel McCoin’s investigative skills in a revolution that will shatter the foundations of society.

We do this by fostering talent through investment in independent projects with potential, bringing back classic titles, promising indies, and AAA games while continuing to support the physical format.

About ChaoticBrain Studios

We are ChaoticBrain Studios, an indie video game studio from Madrid, just starting this adventure of developing our own video game. We are a small studio formed by two people who, after finishing our studies, had the brilliant idea (spoiler: not really) to develop a JRPG as our first game. With this premise in mind and fueled by our love for the cyberpunk theme and great games like FFVII, Octopath Traveler, and Cyberpunk 2077, the idea of Neon Blood was born. And that’s how I met your mother… sorry, that’s how I met ChaoticBrain Studios.
