Ahh I saw that this will release in July according to Steam. So psyched!
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
Official Website: https://synergia-game.com
Synergia is a yuri thriller visual novel that takes place in a cyberpunk future, wrapped up in a beautifully unique, vibrant neon aesthetic. At the end of the world, sometimes love is the ultimate crime.
Cila, a veteran cop with a sour outlook and anger issues expects nothing more from life besides the smell of ozone, blinding neon lights and the ever-present manhole steam. At least, until a shady friend replaces her broken-down housedroid as a favor. Advanced, more efficient and remarkably perceptive, unit M.A.R.A. begins to penetrate Cila's toughened exterior and possibly even heal her new owner's old wounds – if Cila can decipher the recurring nightmare the process brings. Soon Cila and Mara forge a unique - if sometimes uneasy - bond. Unbeknownst to Cila, just as her life begins to find its new normal, the technological giant Velta Labs gets wind of Mara's existence and takes a mysterious interest in the android. A war unlike any before it is brewing on the horizon, its players are silently being selected and one android's fate may spell the difference between peace, war, the blossoming of a new religion, or a technological singularity beyond comprehension.

Amazing artstyle (cgs, bgs, sprites), amazing intro, amazing music
Good idea for a plot. i've noticed some inspirations from other cyberpunk things. a lot of interesting, good-looking and well-written characters. Very good lore and world and story-telling
I want more ♥
Yuri and Cyberpunk? No way I'm gonna skip this, heading over to KS after writing this comment. :)
The art is.. hmm, peculiar. Looks very hand-drawn, both backgrounds and characters. Have only run the demo briefly so far though.
Just one thing: Packaging the game as a .zip file doesn't preserve POSIX permissions. So the game cannot be run as-is on Linux. You have to change the permissions on a few files in the game folders after unpacking:
$ chmod u+x ./lib/linux-x86_64/Synergia ./lib/linux-i686/Synergia
$ chmod u+x ./Synergia.sh
Packaging it as .tar.gz or .tar.bz2 would fix that issue, but I guess that's a bit more inconvenient for Windows users.
I think Ren'Py should support packaging the game for each platform individually though? If true, maybe that'd do the job (Making a .zip for Windows, and something like a .tar.gz for Linux).
Anyway, it's not a big deal, just wanted to mention it. ;)
Alright, time to back that VN! :)
Lookin' forward to this! In the mean time: there is also a game called NeonCode if you're into cyberpunk.
Wooooow. Gonna buy it right on release.
