Series Neonplex

Neonplex is an upcoming 2D Platformer coming to the 3DS, NX & Visus Sphere it is part of a new series called Neonplex. The game revolves around Neon Beings known as Nionites that have the ability to change colour at will as well as swim through Data Streams, the liquids on the planet.


The games backstory explains how many years ago there was a mighty empire of Nionites called the Cyan Streaks, they were an economically booming and war-faring empire, boasting massive armies. However one day they disappeared off of the face of the planet without explanation. Without order to govern them, the smaller empires began to feed among them creating devastating monsters to protect them and destroy neighbouring empires.

The player takes the role of a lost Nionite called Beat that had grown up in the outlands where colour is randomized and alliances do not last long. Beat had been living with a small traveling caravan that was to him, home. However one fateful day, the caravan was ambushed by insane warriors who were uncoloured and slaughtered all the members of the caravan except Beat. Now left with the only people he called family dead, Beat plans to save the royalty of the land from the monsters that have overtaken their empires.


The game functions and pays homage to the playstyle of old Mario, Megaman & Kirby. The player is able to run and jump as well as perform several techniques allowing for greater exploration within levels. These techniques include Wall Jumping, High Backlflips, Kick Flips & Ledge Grabs.

In addition, Beat's special ability to change his colour allows for him to deal out different types of attacks, depending on which colour he has attached he can travel through Data Streams of that colour, be immune to damage from enemies of that type and deal damage to other enemies,in addition each colour grants Beat a different ability such as the Gold Air Dash & Red Charge.

The Outlands are a mysterious and deserted place, there are many individuals who find themselves cursed to wander these lands looking for other unfortunate souls to either band together with or battle for the scarce resources that dot the Outlands.

Crimson Desert

A land limited in food & water, the Crimson Desert is only able to sustain itself on its trading with neighbouring empires in which it trades rare minerals and gemstones for food and water. The Nionites who live here are often ravaged by famines and droughts forcing them on ocassion to the brink of extinction, these are hardy nionites who know how to endure even in great suffering.

Malachite Hills

Recognized across the continent for its impressive monuments, the Malachite hills are covered in vast technological feats that allows its Nionites to live in comfort, the Nionites of the Malachite Hills are very secretive however and often avoid contact with neighbouring Empires.

Sky Blue Forests

The vibrant Data Streams that flow through the Sky Blue forests are known for their cleanliness and high argicultural effects. The Sky Blue Forests house within them many small towns that together fall under the reign of the young Duke Navy. The Sky Blue Forests are one of the most peaceful empires on the continent and generally are seen not taking sides in feuds.

Violet Volcanoes

The mineral rich volcanoes of the Violet Empire is second only to its high Food produce, the empire is known for its incredibly fertile soil which has been known to attract many immigrants from the neighbouring empires, however a recent tax was added to help increase the Empire's own economy and while this has pleased the local population, it has left relationships with the other empires on slightly shaky grounds.

Cream Lakes

The Cream Lakes are vast bodies of Data Stream that spill out into other countries, each with converters to change the colour. The people of the Cream Lakes are some of the most artistic artists & architects on the continent and are known for their extremely high trading with other countries. They seem more focused on growing the necessary crops for these art designs than food and this makes importing and exporting a necessity in the empire.

Pink Jumgle

The Pink Jungle is a wild and mysterious land, there are many fertile fruits as well as a diverse array of creatures and monsters hidden beneath its canopies. The major cities in Pink Jungle are known for being partly on the ground and partly in the trees, this has allowed for the Empire to maximize its spacial capacity, in doing so it has grown a colossal population outmatching any other Empire excluding the Cyan Streaks prior to their dissapearance. They are known for having a grudge against the Cyan Streaks, whether over land or war, it is uncertain.

Greyscale Kingdom

The smallest of all the Empires, the Greyscale Kingdom consists only of Slate Castle and the mountain upon which it lies. Greyscale Kingdom is extremely efficient in its production and never requires any resources from other countries, its automated defences often ward off other empires from attacking in the first place and those who try and contest it often retreat in defeat. The mountain is said to house great amounts of fertile soil, Data Streams & Minerals.

Phantom Tower

A Ghostly Tower that exists off of the coast of the Continent, this tower is not claimed by any Empire but it not recognized as part of the Outlands. It is said that an ancient sorcerer protected the Tower from crumbling and the land it stood on from eroding away, which supposedly gives the power its eerie power to float above the Ocean as well as the ancient tomes scattered on rocks along the shore. It is uncertain what lies with, however it is suspected that a great evil lurks within.
