Vanquish the new gods in the ever-evolving dungeons of Neon Abyss

The gods have spoken

Team17 and Veewo Games are excited to announce today’s launch of Neon Abyss on consoles and PC. In the ever-changing and fast-paced world of Neon Abyss players face off against the New Gods, monstrous bosses formed from modern day venerations and obsessions, including mobile video, plushies, and fast food. As they fight their way through the descending and dynamically generated levels of the Neon Abyss, arming themselves with some of the 400 plus items, players will lay waste to hundreds of twisted enemies, encounter rooms of mini games, and hatch and evolve pets that help them on the journey into the depths below.

Check out what awaits you in the Abyss in the Launch Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4mc0mWIVKM4&feature=youtu.be

Featuring deadly roguelite gameplay and an evolving environment that changes as players choose specific upgrade paths for their characters, no two dungeon runs will be the same: the layout, enemies and challenges will all be different, while players will continually be better equipped to battle against what lurks in the Abyss. For those wanting a taste of the action before they jump in with both feet, demos are available for both Steam and Nintendo Switch.

Key Features:

Evolving Dungeon: Explore the unique and expandable underworld of the Neon Abyss. Choose a personalised upgrade path to expand the dungeon and unlock new rooms, bosses, items, special rules, and new endings

Unlimited Item Synergies: Passive effects between items stack and affect each other, with no limit to the number of effects that can be applied to the player’s character

Expansive Content: Dynamically generated maps, over 400 items, dozens of monsters with different styles, and countless secrets ensure that no adventure through the abyss is the same

Pets Hatching & Evolving: As you descend into the abyss, find and nurture eggs until they hatch into a random pet. Each pet has a special ability, and most can evolve as the action continues

Mini-games: Unique rooms of mini-games can be discovered in the dungeon, each one with new mechanics and rules. Take part in piano performances, dance competitions, fight clubs, and much more.

Jason Yeung, CEO, Veewo Games, said:

“After years of hard work, Neon Abyss is out in the wild. Alongside Team17 we’ve worked tirelessly to ensure players enjoy every second they spend enacting Hades’ will in the Abyss. We’re excited to see how players tackle the constantly changing labyrinth as part of the Grim Squad, forge item stacks and synergies we’ve never encountered, and take down the modern-day gods.”

Max Everingham, Head of Publishing, Team17, said:

“The time has finally come for players to dive into the Abyss and explore the everchanging depths the New Gods call home. As they equip themselves with outrageous weaponry and hatch their own personal companions, we’re sure the vibrant world of Neon Abyss will keep gamers coming back for more over and over again!”
