This History of Neon Engine Interactive

Neon Engine Interactive was founded in 2019 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada by Cody Jassman. Cody's passion for game design & development traces back to when he was 13 years old and purchased the A5 3D GameStudio engine, which proved to be a great platform for him to learn many design & development skills that eventually propelled him into a decade-long web development career building database-driven web applications. In 2019, an opportunity presented itself for Cody to move on from web development and pursue that game design / development career dream. Neon Engine released its debut VR game, Hyperwheel Overdrive, to Steam Early Access in 2020.

Our mission is to drive virtual reality forward with great games that offer novel experiences.

Hyperwheel Overdrive: groundbreaking VR car combat featuring FPS mechanics, arena battles, racing & stunts!

About the Game

Pilot a hyperwheel car, 2197's most versatile sport combat vehicle. Race or battle against other drivers in VR, or perform big stunts on the massive quarterpipes of the Xenodome. Take advantage of a large assortment of power-ups, as well as your laser rifle & dedicated launcher, to alter the situation in your favor. Use a plane kit to soar over the daunting HyperCorp Complex, or a boat kit to navigate the long shores of Volcanica Island!

  • play 11 different match types including Race, Challenge, Stunt, Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Hunt, and Capture the Flag
  • race 20 unique tracks within the game's 5 stages (forwards & backwards)
  • unlock car decals & other content by earning trophies, or by collecting hidden golden rings
  • play online or offline with bots
  • customize your experience via the many comfort options such as third-person view & rotation locking

As you play, you'll collect race and challenge trophies, as well as golden rings hidden (or otherwise difficult to reach) throughout the game's 5 stages. These are used to unlock additional game content as you become a more experienced hyperwheeler. Unlock new car decals and driver suit skins, as well as additional stages and race tracks.

Hyperwheel Overdrive's innovative vehicle design combined with the powerfully immersive nature of VR make the experience novel and unforgettable!

Hardware Support & Platforms
