Tales of the Neon Sea is now officially available on Steam. The game comes from Chinese indie developer Palm Pioneer and is published by Zodiac Interactive. It will normally cost you $16.99 (or €13.99 if you’re in Europe). But for the first week of release you can purchase it at a 10% discount. Tales of the Neon Sea supports English, Simplified Chinese, German and Spanish. They’ve stated that French and Japanese will be added in the next update. Read on down below to find out more about the game and check out the new launch trailer. You can also find the game’s Steam page here.

In the near future, humans and sentient AI robots rely on each other for survival despite growing tensions and unease. Our protagonist, formerly a veteran police detective but now retired following years of frustration and disillusionment, spends his days intoxicated while accepting random jobs as a private investigator to make ends meet. He exists within the neon sea of an immense city, its blinding artificial lights unable to hide the shadow of greed and lust that threatens to engulf it at any moment.
This drunken cycle is broken when our hero becomes entangled in a murder case, one which holds the key to tracking down a monstrous killer who long ago escaped justice. Unlock your memories, decode the truth, and resist drowning in the wave of conspiracy that grips the city!
Features:
  • Fascinating Story – Investigate the murder scene, examine the evidence, and use your powers of deduction to solve the case piece by piece. Once the mist is cleared, will you see the truth or uncover an even bigger mystery?
  • Old School Pixel-art and Detailed Environmental Design – Explore an evocative cyberpunk world brought to life by incredibly detailed pixel-art. Immerse yourself in a vision of a future that can’t let go of the past.
  • Rich and Varied Puzzle Design – Puzzles that will challenge your sense of logic, observation and patience! Combining narrative and environmental elements, and designed to augment your journey into this weird and vibrant world.
  • Play as a Cat? Of Course! – Step into the shoes, or furry paws, of William! As small black street cat, William can reach areas that humans and robots simply cannot, and often finds himself in the right place at the right time!
