A perfect vessel, April 3, 2020

Neon Haze had an easier gameplay than another games of Porpentine, but it is indubiously a Porpentine game : time and links between passages are well-managed (the running, for instance) ; each word matters and touches your heart (moreover, the graphic and sound design by Brenda Neotenomie are perfect).

In addition, Emily Short's review of this game is just here.

Cyber-future Porpentine game about identity , February 3, 2016

This Porpentine game was published in Sub-Q magazine, which is filling the void many people have felt for a venue for IF publication.

Neon Haze is about someone in the future who is going through a rehab program for (Spoiler - click to show)Vessel Syndrome, which makes you feel like you are just a vessel for others, and have no identity.

You have very little interaction with other beings, and you like it that way. There is one main NPC and a few others.

Like all Porpentine games, this game is highly symbolic. The clickable words are made to look like neon lights, and there is a bright neon background. I found both of these things distracting.

Overall, this was not my favorite Porpentine game; there was a good storyline, but the visuals were highly distracting. It's worth a try, though.

Contains some strong language, violence, sexual references, etc. Nothing is very graphic, however; much less than Cyberqueen, a little more than With Those We Love Alive.
