In NeonXSZ (pronounced Neon Excesses) you are injected into cyberspace to stake your place in a war of virus versus machine. During your journey you will fly dozens of spaceships with hundreds of upgrades allowing you to create totally unique spacecraft with which to wage war. Will you protect the operating system or join the infection to bring it down?

NeonXSZ is our little homage to Descent combined with the frenetic adrenaline pumping feel and gameplay mechanics of Quake. Then add Diablo's loot explosions, rpg elements, leveling up, procedurally generated environments and enemies. Finish it all off with truly open-world gameplay inside a micro ecosystem of up to one thousand unique little AI dudes buzzing around getting into fights and doing their own thing.

In NeonXSZ, gamespeed, enemy damage and enemy intelligence are all customizable to suit everyone from a complete novice through to the most elite hardcore 6DoF veteran.

OMG - I built a new computer and just spent an hour in a frenzy trying to remember this game. I have hundreds of games across all the different digital services and this is the one that got me really worried. Get on steam already so I can just add this to my list of favorites!!

Without this game I am not a gamer.

One of the best Spacey Shoot'em Ups I've played in a long long time, and I love the added RPG spice to the mix. Such a tasteful game.

Bought the game yesterday. I like how it detects your previously saved game from earlier games. I was afraid of losing everything and having to start all over again. I'm liking the updates! Money well spent too

Want to know if your graphics card is good enough for NeonXSZ?
We've done some testing of some very old cards with benchmark results, and you can compare your own.
