Finally, here is one more recent review from Save Or Quit:
“Neofeud is a carefully crafted story that plays out like an interactive detective/mystery movie from the 80’s… This is a game for players who like to enjoy a good science fiction story set in a world that feels familiar and possible in the near future.”
I’m honored to have The Space Quest Historian, a prominent and very entertaining personality in the adventure game world, doing a let’s play series of Neofeud!
In addition, Neofeud is still in the top 100 for Indie Game Of The Year with four days left, and it only takes a moment! (No registration necessary!) http://www.indiedb.com/games/neofeud
Happy Cyberpunk Holidays! May your dystopian reality be slightly less grim for the next few weeks.
Thanks everybody who voted for Neofeud in IndieDB! Neofeud made it to the Top 100 Indie Games Of 2017 (Apparently out of over 10,000). We’ll see if we beat Cuphead! (Not likely but one can hope!
First up, Neofeud is still 40% off in the Steam Winter Sale for one more week! If you haven’t picked it up yet, you’ve got until the New Years firework retina-burn wears off and the red firecracker paper biodegrades.
Funhaus, a Youtube comedy channel with over *1.3 million subscribers* just did a short play / comedy video with Neofeud! The video has only been out for a few days and it’s already got over 200,000 views! It’s mostly sillyness, but as a one-guy team with zero budget this is a huge Christmas present, especially considering a bunch of those 200,000 viewers commented “This looks awesome!”, “I just bought Neofeud” or “Why haven’t I heard of this before!?” so thanks for that, Sir Lawrence!
I also spoke to Lawrence Sonntag (the guy playing the game) briefly on Twitter and he gave it a thumbs up. A very cool guy that you might consider following to spot indie gems.
Here’s another review by Steam User Luigi From Fiji:
“Neofeud is on par with Technobabylon and Primordia,” I doubt it, but it is neutron star-dense with technobabble and primordial Kabbalah mysticism!
I will be doing some livestreaming gamedev and hanging out Friday 12/29 at 2 PM EDT on my Youtube channel. (I usually stream on Saturday but I’m having a belated holiday family-invasion at our place this weekend!) Here’s the latest stream, where I play a bit of Neofeud and do some developer commentary.
While Neofeud didn’t quite beat Cuphead in the Indie Game of the Year competition, Neofeud did make it to the Top 100 Indie Games of 2017 (out of over 10,000)![/http://www.indiedb.com/groups/2017-indie-of-the-year-awards/top100] And in the top 3 point-and-click games!
Finally, check out [url=https://twitter.com/SteamShovelers]Steam Shovellers a great game journalism site that does an excellent job spotting the hidden gems in the massive steaming piles of Steam… releases. Steam Shovellers will be playing Neofeud on Twitch on New Years Eve afternoon, Eastern Time. Here’s their comment on the game:
“We’ll also be doing a special block of time for Neofeud in the late afternoon/early evening Eastern US time. Given 2017’s political climate, it’s a game everyone should experience.”
If you’ve been thinking about picking up Neofeud, just a reminder that the Steam sale ends tomorrow!
Neofeud, a cyberpunk adventure and one of the Top Indie Games Of 2017 on IndieDB is now available on the Mac! Get it here: https://silverspook.itch.io/neofeud
In addition, I have recently interviewed Francisco Gonzalez of Grundislav Games (maker of Ben Jordan, Shardlight, A Golden Wake) on adventure games and his upcoming game, Lamplight City!
Here’s the latest podcast featuring Nathan Hamley, creator of “Guard Duty: a point and click through space and time” due out Q3 2018!
Nice, will definitely give that a listen - hoping I might get to the Norwich Game Festival this year and actually meet Nathan, have interacted with him a fair bit on Twitter over the last few months!
Yeah, I hope to get up to AdventureX one of these years (as I mention in the podcast). The tickets will be a bit much from Hawaii, but I’m hoping Neofeud revenue will make this possible if it picks up.
In this episode, Christian “Silver Spook” Miller talks to James Spanos, a game designer who worked on indie gems including Primordia, Cat Lady, Downfall, Until I Have You, and and an upcoming Wormwood Studios project. Topics include:
-Primordia, including interesting backstory on why Crispin “spins”, the voice of Clarity, and what it’s like to have people from around the world creating fan art of the game.
-Some news on Wormwood Studios upcoming projects “Fallen Gods” and “Strangeland”.
-Until I Have You, James’ solo-project and a great cyberpunk platformer that pays homage to everything from Strider and other 80’s platformers and CP anime like Ghost in the Shell and Akira.
-James’ contributions to Cat Lady and Downfall, and some insight into how lead designer Rem Michalski’s often rough experiencing working as a nurse and frequent coffee/smoke breaks helped take Cat Lady to the next level.
-A wide range of cyberpunk and adjacent films, books, games and anime including Neuromancer, Idoru, Johnny Mnemonic, Terry Gilliam’s Brazil, District 9, Perfect Blue, Metal Gear Solid, GITS, BR & BR 2049 (& many more) and the ways in which cyberpunk has been and remains relevant to society, the human (or trans-human) condition, and civilization.
-Synthwave, and composition (both James and Christian composed the music for their own one-person projects).

I think you have to view this as a good thing since it let you slip in a Bladerunner reference!
Here’s the latest stream episode, where I delve into my art process, show some of the latest material on Neofeud 2, talk about the podcasts and feature some music by Primordia’s James Spanos, Dimi Kaye, and my friend Scott Smigiel!
The Silver Spook Podcast has also been featured on the front page of Exilian, an awesome democratically-run online community! https://exilian.co.uk/index.php
My latest artwork on Neofeud 2, the sequel to the dystopian sci-fi adventure!
This particular scene is now more-or-less finished up, although it will probably go through another phase of modification when it gets implemented in the AGS game engine.
Wow! I never expected a sequel to this very engaging game - will we see some familiar characters?
