Epic Games began distributing “Neon Abyss” for free on December 18 on the Epic Games Store. The free distribution period is until 1:00 a.m. on December 19, 2021 Japan Time. If you add it to the library during the period, you will be able to continue playing after the distribution period ends. The Epic Games Store version of “Neon Abyss” has a regular price of 2,050 yen and supports Japanese subtitles.
“Neon Abyss” is a flashy 2D Rogue Light action GST that challenges the abyss while boosting weapons. In the world where this work takes place, the gods born in the present day, called the Titan Group, dominated the world. The Titan group robs Hades of power and also dismembers the main character’s family. The hero teams up with Hades for revenge and challenges the abyss as a member of the Grimm squad organized by Hades. Face off against the mighty god and the administrator.
The structure of the Dungeon Following the Abyss challenged by the Grim Squad changes every time you play, and enemies are waiting for you inside. The player explores the dungeon while destroying the enemies waiting in each room, and defeats the boss God. The ultimate goal is to defeat 5 managers. In addition, in this work, the player uses a gun to fight against the enemy. Weapons initially equipped have simple performances, but weapons available in treasure chests and stores come in a variety of performances, including those with high rate of fire and those with unique trajectories.
In addition, in this work we will customize the gun using the items obtained along the way. There are a wide variety of item effects, such as ones that simply increase damage, ones that increase the number of balls thrown, and ones that rarely bounce balls. Objects are endlessly combined with guns, creating flashy gameplay. In addition, there are pets that hatch from eggs to support the player, and a system that unlocks items with gems obtained during the game.
