Major Changes Coming

Hey cyberpunks,

So the last time I updated the game I was confident that Neon Black was in it's final stages and would be receiving no more major updates going forward. I recently sent the Neon Black manuscript to my first choice of publisher and received some really great detailed feedback. The feedback centered on two points:

  1. This game does not build on or significantly change anything in the core blades experience.
  2. The principles of the game "Capitalism sucks, community rules, etc." are, by and large, not reinforced mechanically in the game's rules.

I agree with this feedback. Right now Neon Black, as I see it, wants to address the evils of the rich, corporations, and capitalism, but paints the characters as grimdark scoundrels seeking their own ways to gain wealth. I would much rather this game be about stealing from the rich to help disenfranchised and marginalized people in the player characters' community. This will require a lot of work on my part, and the next version of the game will look substantially different than the current version. I'm continuing to test the game as I make changes, but I want to be confident in a new framework before releasing anything here, so it may be a while before you see a new version of Neon Black.

As always, thanks to everyone who has supported me and the game. Couldn't have gotten here without you.

Publishing? Hell yeah


That's what I'm hoping!
