Niche Spotlight – Neon Abyss

Neon Abyss

Today’s Spotlight is Neon Abyss; a roguelite action-platformer by Veewo Games, and Team17 Digital.

Infiltrate the Abyss as a member of the Grim Squad, on your quest to kill the New Gods. Choose your path through the Abyss, and craft ridiculous synergies as you acquire an arsenal of quirky weapons and items. You can also hatch and evolve pets that offer even more bonuses and abilities.

Neon Abyss also features a variety of optional mini-games that you can play to get more loot. You can find the launch trailer below.

Neon Abyss is available on Windows PC (via GOG, and Steam), Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One for $19.99.

You can find a rundown of the game (via Steam) below:

Combining furious run ‘n’ gun action and deep, roguelike mechanics, Neon Abyss pits you as a member of ‘Grim Squad’ – a task force set-up by Hades himself to infiltrate the Abyss and defeat the New Gods. Death is not the end as every time you die, you’ll find yourself more empowered than before.


As you progress through each dungeon, random item drops will be key in helping you infiltrate the Abyss and these passive effects can stack between every item. With no limit to how many can apply; a wide variety of combinations will make each run unique.


With each run, you will be able to unlock new rooms, items, bosses, special rules and even new endings! This means each dungeon is unique and expandable, being tailored to your own specific playstyle.

Hatch and Evolve Pets
If you need some company on your journey into the depths of the abyss, or just some additional firepower or assistance, eggs can be found which will turn into a random pet that has a special ability and will evolve the longer you survive.

Take a short break from slaying minions and take part in random mini-games that will also bag you some loot! Jump into Piano Performances, Meditation Challenge, Dance Competitions, and more – staying alive just got a lot more interesting!
