Frenetic Twin-stick Shooter NeuroVoider Coming to PS4

Thomas Altenburger's Avatar Posted by on Jan 20, 2016 // Half of Flying Oak Games

Imagine a world of robots partying after the annihilation of humankind. NeuroVoider will show you what this theoretical world would look like.

Play as one of the four remaining human brains kept as tests subjects in a futuristic world where machines have overpowered the human race. Lead humanity’s last hope against the Evil Robots lead by the master NeuroVoider.

NeuroVoider is an action-packed, top-down, twin-stick shooter featuring RPG mechanics. Playable with up to four friends cooperatively, it’s an hack ‘n’ slash rampage with a pinch of rogue-lite elements… and a bunch of explosions.

You’ll play to loot and assemble parts of your robotic foes in order to build your own robotic entity to pilot. Fight your way through the oppression in a procedurally generated world with up to 8,736 unique enemies (Yes, we counted) and gigantic bosses that will hardly fit on your screen. A local multiplayer game about brains shooting evil robots with nuclear rocket launchers? This should ease your fear of robots, doesn’t it?

Oh! And to top it off, play over the sound of the powerful dark synth music by Dan Terminus. May your ears survive the beat.

A Small Team of Shooter Lovers

We are Flying Oak Games, a two-man team composed of Florian (the pixel magician) and Thomas (It’s me! I’m the “tech & other stuff” guy), and everything started around some pizza.

Before working on NeuroVoider, Florian and I had the habit to spend our Friday nights together playing some local multiplayer games like TowerFall, Borderlands, or Nuclear Throne. Playing with friends, all together on the couch with a slice of pizza is what we like the most in gaming!

Hence, we were quite obliged to create our own take on the four-player, action-packed style of game. NeuroVoider was born! Explosions, dark synth music, high replay value, and a good dose of difficulty to spend the whole night having a good time — alone or with a bunch of friends.

We’re looking forward to bring NeuroVoider to your PS4! Cheers guys!

This would be awesome on the Vita, any possibility of this happening?

Does this game come with real life friends as DLC because I could use some to play with.

Looks cool! Can’t wait to hear more details as far as date and price. Vita is nice but 4 player couch co-op is great for get togethers.

    We’re shooting for a June release! And couch gaming is our focus at the moment. We’re not excluding a Vita version, but we haven’t any info regarding yet, so I’m going to make any false promise.

    Amen!

    Games like Nuclear Throne and Helldivers were lovely on Vita and PS4. You should’ve launched it as crossbuy on day1, missed opportunity. Looks like this was made to be on Vita, 14 million install base should be enough for developers to consider a Vita port.

Explosions are good :)

Will the audio assets be 24-bit/lossless to maximize the dynamic range of said explosions? will there be a surround sound mix?

    Lossless, that’s a sure thing. There’s no way that we downgrade Dan Terminus’ work.
    We still have to throw a few stick of dynamite to record real explosion sounds.

Perhaps a melee add-on would be fun? Jetpacks too.
