Cyber warfare just stepped up a gear. Battle it out in highly tactical real time PVP warfare with Failure: NeuroSlicers - a genre-defining new competitive real time strategy game coming out for PC / Mac / Linux and eventually PS4 / Xbox One / iOS / Android.

With advanced AI powered units and environment manipulation at its core, Failure: NeuroSlicers offers a set of truly fresh challenges for both the seasoned competitive player as well as those looking for a deep narrative driven strategy gaming experience.

Combine a wide variety of highly customizable abilities including clever AI controlled units, upgradeable buildings and most importantly, hacking powers that allow players to manipulate the battle space, reconfiguring the environment and influencing the behaviours of both their and their enemy's units.

Unlock the secrets of the NeuroNet and the corporations vying for control in a multiplayer driven narrative and ultimately make a decision who to side with as the war of the Network escalates.

In Failure: NeuroSlicers you are a lone hacker looking to become the best Slicer in the network, but the truth hidden in it's depths might mean your fighting for more than just your share of cryptocurrency.

Failure: NeuroSlicers started life as an internal game jam game developed by Milcho Milchev, our lead designer and gameplay programmer. Initially the game was in 2D with the simple mechanic of being able to place or remove squares from a grid based battle board where two teams of little Ai controlled bots would fight it out.


The player's objective was to manipulate the battle board by placing and removing these blocks in order to change the behaviours and pathfinding of the bots and get them to be strategically placed so that they could destroy the other team before the player's team died. It all centered around placement, timing and positioning. It was simple, yet elegant and we very quickly realised we were onto something special.

Since the first prototype we have continued to keep the AI controlled units and battleboard manipulation at the core of the game's experience while expanding on it immensily. This has culminated in a real time strategy game that feels truly fresh, exciting yet challenging, but most importantly a lot of fun to play.

  • Physically manipulate the battlegrounds, changing their layout which in turn influences unit movement and building line of sight.
  • Units in Failure are completely AI controlled with players only able to influence their behaviours through the use of their powers
  • Refocused gameplay from micromanagement to macromanagement, breaking down the barriers that often stop people from playing RTS games.
  • Wide variety of units, buildings and hacking powers available to players allowing them to customize their loadouts to suit their playstyle.
  • Deep narrative experience tied to multiplayer progression. Unlock the truths hidden in the data you collect and see the Factions for who they really are and ultimately determine the future of the NeuroNet and the world beyond.
  • Fast paced, highly competitive gameplay that's quick to pick up and fun to master.
  • Deep player progression that's tied to ability and visual unlocks, narrative and ultimately the end game content which focuses on the Faction war between the three Corporations and the player's position among their ranks.

Hi Everyone,

So firstly I wanted to say thanks for following us along on our development journey. We've been developing Failure: NeuroSlicers for the the past 3 years, completely self funded, and your support means a lot to us. Although we've still got a way to go before we're ready for a full launch we're happy to announce that we're going to be doing closed Pre-Alpha later this year. There are a couple of ways to get involved which I cover a bit further down this post.

Firstly, lets get the latest Trailer out of the way. So without further adieu, here it is:

Anyway, this update concerns our recent time over in Birmingham, UK for Insomnia61, the UK's largest gaming culture event.

What an amazing 4 days we had, talking to a real cool bunch of gamers and other developers (and even some publishers). Insomnia was the first consumer event we've done and what a place to do it in! If you guys have never been to the Birmingham NEC; its like a city, in fact it has almost a quarter of a million square meters of exhibition space; that's the size of around 35 premier league football pitches!

The Indie area of Insomnia was in a prime location which meant we had a constant influx of new players coming over to check out the game each day and on day 2,3 and 4 we even had a large number of returning players come and play again and again, which was great to see.

During the 4 days we were giving away some cool collectable badges to everyone who sat down and played and if anyone managed to beat either Milcho or I they would walk away with a cool limited edition Mouse pad - surfice to say, quite a few people managed to walk away with Mousepads.....I swear Milcho must have thrown a few one usually beats him!

We ended up getting some really helpful feedback, but the general consensus from almost every player was that we're onto something special with Failure: NeuroSlicers. Some people even came back to us to tell us it was their favorite game of the show which was super nice of them.

If you weren't able to make it down to Insomnia, don't forget that you can get access to an Interview recorded on the last day of the show for free in our rewards section at:

If you want to support us further then we also filmed a mini documentary during our time there and you’ll also get one of the exclusive limited edition square badges that we handed out. And if you really want to splash out and get one of the cool limited edition mousepads, all 5 of the limited edition badges and access to our Closed Pre-Alpha when it launches later this year then we have that as a reward as well.

We're also growing our Discord community in preparation for the Closed Pre-Alpha launch happening later this year. Want to get involved without paying for access on Brightlocker? Then come join us over at Discord.Failure.Game and get talking with the rest of the community.

So as mentioned, there are two ways you can get involved with the Pre-Alpha, either head over to our Brightlocker Rewards section and Purchase access where you'll be able to skip the queue, or head over to our Discord Community and get involved in the discussion.

Looking forward to chatting.
