I was very surprised at how much I enjoyed Tales of the Neon Sea, it delivered so much more than I was expecting. Not only do you get a good storyline which manages to hook you until the end, but you also get a wide variety of puzzles, investigations, interactions and fun gameplay. Tales of the Neon Sea is an indie game which deserves much more coverage and exposure as it’s such a great game, even though it’s technically incomplete right now. I can easily recommend Tales of the Neon Sea to anyone who enjoys puzzles and appreciates a good story. Even if you’re only somewhat interested in puzzles, please play this wonderful game as it’s one of a kind.
An interesting adventure that draws us to a distopical (an pixelated) future in the veins of classic sci-fi movies like Blade Runner, but it becomes less and less interesting the more you play it.

Tales of the Neon Sea is a promising cyberpunk puzzler marred by an underbaked story and a host of small annoyances. Although it boasts engaging puzzles and beautiful visuals, Neon Sea drags and loses its direction as it progresses. It's a game that has potential, but it just can't seem to capitalize on it.
Tales of the Neon Sea could've been a great cyberpunk tale. But it's full of forgettable characters and pointless puzzles. And on top of that it doesn't even have an ending — you have to wait until fall. Maybe by that point it will become better, after a couple of big updates.
