Neon White’s slick gameplay was influenced by speedrunners

Neon White developer Ben Esposito revealed that his indie debut was influenced by speedrunners.

In an interview with Edge Magazine, Esposito explained how watching fast-paced videos sparked his initial ideas and later solidified the game’s core mechanics:

“It was really interesting for me, at a very high level [speedrunning] “It’s a little less about your application and more about solving a puzzle to save time,” says Esposito. “You have very limited resources and people find the most ingenious ways to use it as a rambling Goomba.”

Esposito admits he was a puzzle designer at heart and the concept of time was an enigma in itself, and it was a temptation he couldn’t ignore. His fascination with sprinting grows as he becomes more fascinated by the creativity it inspires in players who use their resources sparingly and achieve vastly different results.

Neon White is an assassin game mixed with Sonic the Hedgehog, its own “limited resource” card system. You play as White, a character chosen by Hell to save Heaven from the demon problem. While White is currently on a temporary visa to paradise, beyond the pearly white gates is the lure of permanent residency.

The main objective is to complete each level as quickly as possible and in the heat of the moment you can decide to exchange ammo cards for weapons or exchange them for parkour moves. As Esposito explains, “As with any good card game, it’s all about knowing when to hold your hand and when to play.”

The faster the race, the better the score and the brighter the medal at the end. Levels are designed to be replayable and players can always come back and explore new ways to try to pass the celestial architecture faster and get a better reward. To increase the Ante, once players earn Platinum, the leaderboards open up to them, giving them a striking competitive edge in the game.

Neon White unfortunately doesn’t have a specific confirmed release date, but it will launch on Nintendo Switch and PC in early 2022.

Neon White developer Ben Esposito has revealed the indie breakout was influenced by speedrunners.
Esposito explained in an interview with Edge Magazine how watching speedrunning videos sparked his initial ideas and then later cemented the main mechanic of the game: 
“It was really interesting to me that, at a super-high level [speedrunning] becomes a little bit less about your execution and more about solving a puzzle to shave off some time,” says Esposito. “You have very limited resources, and people come up with the most ingenious ways to use, like, a stray Goomba.”
At heart, Esposito admits he is a puzzle designer and the concept of time being its own enigma was an allure he couldn’t ignore. His fascination with speedrunning grew as he became more and more impressed with the ingenuity it inspired in players who used their resources sparingly whilst yielding so many different results. 
Neon White is an assassin game mixed with Sonic the Hedgehog, with its own “limited resources” being a card system. You plays as White, a character who died and has been picked by Hell to cure Heaven of its demon problem. While White is currently on a temporary visa in Heaven, there’s the lure of permanent residency beyond the pearly white gates.
The main goal is to complete each level as fast as possible, and you can decide whether to trade ammunition cards for weapons or switch them for parkour movements in the heat of the moment. As Esposito explains “as in any good card game it’s all about when to hold onto your hand and when to play it.”
The quicker the run through, the better the score and shinier the medal received at the end. The levels are built for replayability, and players can always go back and explore the heavenly architecture in new ways to try and traverse faster and receive a better prize. To up the ante, once players win the Platinum medal, the leaderboards open up to them, offering a scintillating competitive edge to the game.
Neon White unfortunately has no specific release date confirmed, but it’s set to release in early 2022 on Nintendo Switch and PC.
