Valve registers mysterious new Neon Prime trademark in the US
Headcrab Valve’s botherers have trademarked something called Neon Prime This week, an application profile was revealed. The application was made through the US Patent and Trademark Office. Neon Prime’s trademark was listed as for “computer game software, video game software, video game software, computer game programs downloadable over the internet”. So not VR hardware or Steam Deck.
The trademark application was discovered by eagle-eyed redsmiths and posted in Van subreddit. Some commenters suggested it might just be a CS:GO activity. Somehow, I can’t see this as Half-Life 3: Neon Prime. You never know, though. Valve hasn’t released a single game since Aperture Desk Job for the Steam Deck earlier this year. Before that, we had the VR Half-Life: Alyx spin-off in 2020.
Of course, you’re free to speculate wildly in the comments about what Neon Prime might be. So far online, I’ve seen people suggesting it could be the aforementioned CS:GO activity, or a Half-Life card game. One even said that Neon Prime backwards is Half-Life 3, but I can’t seem to make that work.
Graham came up with a Best Movie in Review of Half-Life: Alyx. However, he still wants more caresses from the game’s characters. “There is more promise than in some cases where these characters or others, dynamically comment or react to decisions you have made, such as what you are carrying or what you are wearing. However, I find myself yearning for a Half-Life game that goes further and learns more from modern linear narrative games like Firewatch. ”
No more details on Neon Prime yet, but I’ll keep you updated if and when I hear anything. You can see very little details in the trademark application here.
