Neon Doctrine, a Taiwan-based indie games publisher, has released some of the most diverse titles in the industry, ranging from spooky horror games to historical sidescrollers and a cutesy precision platformer, among others.
The latter is a reference to the video game Jack Axe, which was developed by Keybol Games in the Philippines. Neon Doctrine’s The Indie Houses showcase featured the announcement of a new free-to-play Jack Axe game, which was later released on Steam.
It’s called Jack Axe: The Trial, and it’s a time attack spin-off that not only provides a sneak peek at the upcoming platformer but also serves as a speedrunning competition. Players who place first or second on the leaderboards after submitting a video of their speedruns are eligible to win special prizes.
While the fastest player will be awarded the honor of having their own custom character included in the full release of Jack Axe, the top five finishers will each receive Steam credits as consolation prizes for their efforts.
Neon Doctrine also demonstrated their recently released survival horror game Lamentum, which was released on the PC on August 28th, according to the company. It has also been ported to the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One platforms today as well.
To save his wife Alissa from the malevolent Grau Hill Manor, players must guide 19th century aristocrat Victor Hartwell through deadly traps and battle terrifying monsters as he attempts to escape from the manor.
The Legend of Tianding is a 2D side-scrolling action game that will be released on PC and Nintendo Switch on October 27th, 2018. The story of Taiwan’s struggle for independence from Imperial Japan will be told through the eyes of Liao Tianding, a legendary master thief and local folk hero who lived during the time of the Japanese occupation.
Neon Doctrine’s Devilated first-person shooter is the company’s latest release. The game features 30 levels of monsters, weapons, and plenty of violence, and it’s available now on Steam.
Devilated is a first-person shooter with RPG elements that will appeal to fans of Doom. You’ll be running and shooting your way through labyrinthine levels, with RPG elements to keep the whole experience thrilling and fresh.
