Indie development studio Palm Pioneer has released its cyberpunk pixel art game Tales of the Neon Sea on Steam. Development of the game was partially funded via Kickstarter.


The game is set in a cyberpunk cityscape where humans and robots contend with escalating tensions and mutual distrust. Players take on the role of a hard-boiled detective using their wits and puzzle-solving skills to determine the course of this unique tale.

Perhaps the most interesting aspect of the game is its stunning visuals, combining traditional pixel art with modern atmospheric lighting and visual effects to bring the world to life.

In terms of gameplay, players will encounter various puzzles interspersed throughout the story. These are said to focus on observation and reasoning skills, while also being logical and fun.

Development of the game was partially funded with a Kickstarter campaign that launched in August. The campaign collected roughly $15,000 in funding, more than its initial $10,000 goal.

The version that releases today contains between 12 to 15 hours of gameplay, and features the first three chapters of a larger story arc. The studio aims to release the remaining chapters for free sometime this fall.

Tales of the Neon Sea released on April 30, 2019, for PC. It is also expected to release for consoles at a later date.
