Hi, we are Rocket Juice! We are a tiny team of 3 full time Indie Games makers based in Taiwan.

Neon Tail  is an open world roller skating game where you follow a young girl’s adventures and save the streets of Bluepulse City from dimensional disaster. She will meet many colorful characters and explore many fantastic locations of the city, from its various districts (shopping, business, residential etc) to its subways and sewers, to the unknown planes of existence.

The game is inspired by the urban dynamism of Jet Set Radio, the character development, narration, and emotional connections from Life is Strange, and the open world freedom from new gen Batmans.

This is  early prototype video:

Features

  • Plot missions
  • Side Missions
  • Unique roller skating controls
  • Fantastic sci fi city to explore
  • Free roaming activities
  • Explosive soundtracks
  • Memorable characters, playable and NPCs
  • Interesting Collectibles

This looks like a a really interesting game. Have you considered customizing your game page at all? I don't think the default theme does the project justice.

Thank you for your interest in our game! And yes, we'll customize it :)

Neon Tail - Devlog 01   (March 10th, 2018)

A lot of things are happening lately. I’ve laid down several courses for the project to take depending on our situation. But beside preparing documents, plannings and other stuff indirectly related to the game content, I improved several basic control details, actually changing a lot to the playing feels.

  • The grinding control, feels and orientation.
  • The jumping has a smart animation selection, avoiding flips when detecting walls.
  • Added slight aerial control, making a tremendous difference in combo difficulty.
  • Wallrides are now separated into 2 states : classic wallride, with gravity pull and no control over direction and Boosting wallride.
  • Added a mockup of the residential area, preparing a whole new environment workflow as given the size of the levels, the usual way won’t make it. (back to the ugly checker environment for now, but we’re working on it!)
  • As usual, lots of miscellaneous bugs fixed.

This looks awesome!

Thank you!!

Neon Tail - Devlog 02  (March 18th, 2018)

I've been poking around level design ideas in the residence area and been figuring out how a giant spill of coffee can serve as a grindable rail from many angles.
Other than that :
- Set up and testing new environment and props workflow.
- Refined mockup, reorganize, updated or modeled environment and props.
- Created a bunch of tilable normal maps.
- Grinding now zooms out on player's left stick input.
- Head follows camera all the time, instead of following only at low speed and looking forward at high speed
