In NeonXSZ (pronounced Neon Excesses) you are injected into cyberspace to stake your place in a war of virus verses 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.

The Juice Update (Part 1) Sneek Peek:

The first part of this set of updates for NeonXSZ has focused on environmental details to add activity and life to the environment to increase the sense of being 'somewhere'.

A screenshot cannot possibly show the changes though as they are all about little details and movement. This one minute long video screenshot brings the above screenshot to life:

NeonXSZ already offers well in excess of thirty hours of polished gameplay. Try the demo today, you will not be disappointed.

The first part of the 'Juice Update' should go live on Desura in a couple of weeks.

The game environment looks much more alive now great job guys. Does the juice update include special animations for changing factions like going Malware/Virus friendly or something? Like the environment adjusting colors? Also does the juice update create new options for adjusting the look of the game?

Happy hacking my friends!

Thanks Xovan. :)

The game already features the ability to swap factions and become friendly with Virus or Malware, and yes the environment changes instantly when you do that. That is already in the currently released version.
For every existing colour scheme in the game, there is an alternate version when you swap friendly/hostile status with each faction.

The Juice update is planned to come in multiple parts. The first part is hopefully going to be available this weekend and more new colour schemes will likely be added soon but not for this weeks update.
