Roguelite shooter Neon Abyss is out July 14

Neon Abyss, the first game from developer Veewo Games, uses "frantic in its Steam description, and that sure as hell seems like the right word to describe this roguelite shooter. This launch trailer from the Future Games Show (opens in new tab) shows off some crazy guns, boss fights and minigames, with the kind of wild item combinations that make games like Enter the Gungeon and The Binding of Isaac so much fun to play over and over again.

My favorite weapons from the trailer, in order:

  • The one that shoots fish skeletons
  • The one that shoots big homing arrows
  • The one that shoots giant balls
  • The one that shoots slightly smaller balls, but more of them
  • The one that's laser tentacles

Neon Abyss is out on July 14, but you can check out a demo of it right now on its Steam page (opens in new tab).

Wes has been covering games and hardware for more than 10 years, first at tech sites like The Wirecutter (opens in new tab) and Tested (opens in new tab) before joining the PC Gamer team in 2014. Wes plays a little bit of everything, but he'll always jump at the chance to cover emulation and Japanese games.


When he's not obsessively optimizing and re-optimizing a tangle of conveyor belts in Satisfactory (it's really becoming a problem), he's probably playing a 20-year-old Final Fantasy or some opaque ASCII roguelike. With a focus on writing and editing features, he seeks out personal stories and in-depth histories from the corners of PC gaming and its niche communities. 50% pizza by volume (deep dish, to be specific).
