The Neon City - V0.04 Released

Oh hey there.

I finally did it. It only took me 2 years but I actually motivated myself to not disappear this time.

I present to you:

The Neon City.

The Neon City is a 3D weight gain life sim with visual novel elements, all done in Unreal 4. At the moment, it’s super early on in development, but I’ve managed to get more than 2 lines of code written so I’m already winning in my books.

I plan on fleshing out more information as time goes on, but I’ll leave a planned feature list below, as well as the demo of what I have so far.

Planned Features

-Fleshed out weight gain system.
-Inflation system
-Combat system that involves using your weight to your advantage.
-Romanceable characters that can have their weight change throughout their story.
-Life simulator aspect (jobs, player home, etc.)
-Basic needs
-Transformations (horns, tails, cat ears etc.)
-Diverse customization.
-probably like 30 other things I’m forgetting lmao

A Few Screenshots

V0.04 Changelog

-added newly purchased assets to make city look more like a city
-added sculpted landscape
-added super fake water that does not work at all
-added a teleport system to utilise new buildings properly
-added baseline for new interaction system
-added player apartment to eventually make use of new interaction system
-added system for item icons
-added new shop window system that will help me update the inventory system

-messed with lighting settings to fit the style better
-optimized performance

Basic Controls

-Left click on characters when close enough to interact with them (only interact works and only steve has dialogue at the moment).
-Space bar advances dialogue.
-Hold right click to move camera

At the moment, a lot of assets are placeholder and are subject to change. I’m going to start working on animations soon, then probably start working more on the conversation system.

For me, it always lets me download these if I log in. So people might be able to do that.

this project feels very ambitious, i do hope we see a release of it but at the same time i think this project is going to cause quite a bit of burnout so i hope you manage to finish project!

honestly, when I’m passionate about something, it’s hard for me to burn out. like I wasn’t going to work on it yesterday, then I got bored with whatever I was doing and just hyper fixated on coding for 3 hours lol

Can you put a download link on itch? It’s hard for me to download form google and link. Because I’m at China and I can"t log in those sites without vpn.
