    EDIT: Beta testing over, the game will be released Nov 17th, 2016!

    Hi,

    We've released a game called Neon Chrome on PC, Xbox One and PS4. The game is a roguelite twin-stick shooter.

    The next step would be to make the mobile version. The game will be quite different due to the platform requirements so we'll take our time creating it and we'd be thrilled to share the game with some beta testers as we go.

    You should have an iOS device with 1 gig of RAM. The more detailed requirements are still being determined. The first version could be available during August.

    Here's the sign up form: http://neonchromegame.com/mobile-beta/

    Twin stick rogue like sounds perfect. Please make it playable on iPhone 5!

    Looks good, I have high hopes. Hopefully not too light on the 'roguelike' elements - I enjoy my twin-sticks with a bit more depth. Signed up for beta, fingers crossed it lives up to promise.

    Thanks for the comments! We'll keep you up to date with the progress. Currently the game runs on "modern" iOS devices and can be toyed around a bit with rudimentary controls for aiming and running. Next up will be implementing the first best guess for controls and initial balancing, misc changes and setup for the level generators for the mobile version.

    Extremely crappy placeholder controls & UI, but the game is running already.

    We're very near to start beta testing with external testers. The game runs pretty sweetly on devices less than two years old. The one in the video is an iPad Air 2 with all the details switched on. You can get higher frame rates by switching off the bloom filter for example.

    The current version runs also on older devices like the iPad Mini or the iPhone 5 as well. The game was originally created for PCs and consoles so the low processing power naturally results in less than desirable frame rate with old devices. With less than 1 gig of memory there might be some memory problems still but we'll try to weed them out as far as we can so that the game would work on all iOS 8 devices.

    You can see that there are two aiming modes: manual and auto aim. The missiles ability is used by tapping a target on screen. A single button will initiate an action or a melee attack depending on the situation.

    Drop your e-mail here http://neonchromegame.com/mobile-beta/ for possible beta opportunities. We'll draw testers randomly from the database.

    Wohoo! We've started the very first beta test! Around 50 people from the list were randomly invited. We'll draw more batches in the near future so you can still sign up at http://neonchromegame.com/mobile-beta/ if you'd like to apply.

    The game is now completely playable on iOS. Currently we're focusing on improving the very basic core things like playbility, difficulty level and technical performance.

    So far we've sent around 180 invites. If you sign up now, there's maybe a 30% chance to get an invite when we draw another 200 in the coming weeks :)

    We've already received lots of useful feedback. We'll be updating the beta with an improved ability activation/control system today or tomorrow!

    Oh, and follow the Overseer for some deranged quotes: https://twitter.com/NCOverseer

    Where can we give feedback? Digging it thus far, but one point I'd make with the controls is make the direction of the bullets come solely from the right stick, a la the recent port of Leap of Fate. That seems to work better with shooters than the Wayward Souls method of facing the direction of who you're attacking (more of a melee thing). Right now I think the controls are a mixture of both.

    Oh another thing, if you lock onto an enemy and they go off-screen, I think you should remain locked-on so long as there's nothing in between you and them. It kinda compensates for the small screens on ios. Will make boss fights considerably less messy.

    Otherwise, looking very promising!
