Neon Valley is a project I have worked on the last 5-6 years. Mostly in my free time and a lot of the time which should have been my sleep. As I am by training an artist and designer I had to learn to program, so I could begin developing my own ideas. This project was for that purpose but as it developed I was drawn to its potential. Thus, I took it to the next level, I revamped a lot of the art and turned it into a somewhat full-fledged game. Or at the least, that became my goal. Neon Valley transformed from a small prototype shooter into an online multiplayer game. Furthermore, I began exploring themes and discussions brought up by cyberpunk. Ideas that include dystopias, artificial intelligence, shadow governments, of freedom and identity, and more.
For this, I delved deeper into not only C# programming in Unity but also how to program multiplayer networking. Beyond that also, VFX, designing game mechanics, lighting, UI design, and more. So it has been a rough few years for this little artist, something very out of my comfort zone. It was not the straightforward projects of my 14yr old self. But I love it none the less and am very excited to present my figurative but-also-kind-of-literal blood sweat and tears.
I wish to tailor-make a competitive online shooter that allows a diverse variety of gameplay styles. Set in the archives of a locked and monitored internet. Wherein I can explore the meaning of the internet for our society and the importance of information in a digital age.
