Hi everyone, I’m the creator of an adventure game called Neofeud. I’ve been working on this game for the past 2 1/2 years or so, and Neofeud has just been released a few weeks ago. I regret not posting about it here earlier, but I admit I am not very good about spreading the word and I’m pretty much working alone here as an indie developer.
At any rate, here’s what Neofeud is all about:
Neofeud is a Dystopic Cyberpunk adventure game in the vein of Blade Runner, but with an overlay of Game of Thrones-like political intrigue, and 1366x768, hand-painted, stylized visuals.
2033 - We create AI. Sentient robots arrive, but not as our Terminator overlords or our Singularity saviors—conscious machines are humanity’s unwanted bastard children. A few are geniuses who design flying cars, beat cancer, invent teleportation, but millions of defective prototypes roll out of factories—mentally challenged, motivationally-challenged, criminally-inclined. Legally conscious, but unhirable, these “Defectives” are shuffled through public housing and welfare assistance, straining the already overburdened back of the meager social safety net. The robots who don’t end up in prison are dumped, as a last resort, into a massive landfill known as “The Pile”.
Humans engage in perfection of their species—or at least the powerful and well-connected—genetically engineering children with human and animal DNA. The failed eugenics experiment “Frankenpeople” are discarded into “The Pile” as well. The new dynasties, ‘Neofeudal Lords’, live in towering neon glass castles, shuttle around in pristine nanotech-enabled pods, minds and bodies full of cyberware, spending most of their time taking selfies and “optimizing their monetization schemes”. A race of supermen concerned only with their own status, their prestige, their success. Where machines have become all too flawed and human, people have become flawless, perfect, cold machines.
Karl Carbon is an ex-cop, dishonorably discharged from Coastlandia PD for disobeying an order to shoot an unarmed sentient humanoid. Karl is exiled to “The Pile” as a lowly social worker. There he counsels gangbanging foster-kid robots and confiscates chimera-children from deadbeat half-wolf parents. Till one day a case goes horribly sideways and Karl is drawn into a sordid conspiracy that could threaten the strained fabric of Human-Robot-Hybrid civilization—or save it.

Thanks for checking it out!
i tried to look at Steam greenlight to vote for it but it says that it’s been removed by the author. Looks interesting though, I’ll add it to my backlog
Thanks, Giom! Oh, and the Steam Greenlight page should be back up now.
I’ve voted on Greenlight. Good luck!
I voted as well. I am interested in this: it seems to be able to scratch some of my itches. This is the Greenlight link for the lazy.
Interesting project, I like the art, creepy and fascinating at the same time.

Thanks guys for the votes and support!
I just figured out that you can also vote for Neofeud on GOG as well, if you want.
Also, does anyone know if developers get free Steam keys to give away? I’d like to give Steam keys to anyone who has already bought Neofeud at the Itch.io or the Gamejolt store already.
Here’s all the sites again:
Hi guys, here’s some updates on Neofeud.
Neofeud gets some glowing praise from this guy in his indie game highlight!
Neofeud has an official review! “Neofeud offers 10 hours of gameplay… great for any SF or point-and-click fan.” It is in French, but thank the techno-gods for Google Translate!
And finally, you can get the Neofeud Short Story Collection for *free* this week when you buy Neofeud.
Thanks again, everyone who upvoted! I’m crossing my fingers that Neofeud will be Greenlit before Steam shuts Greenlight down!
Voted. As someone said, it seems kind of creepy and interesting.
Thanks Walas for your vote!
Hi guys, just a heads up: Neofeud’s bonus content is free with the game until June 13!
(Bonus content includes the soundtrack - 2 1/2 hours of music + the original script)
In addition, Neofeud merchandise is now available.
And finally, I will be livestreaming development of the next Silver Spook Games title, tomorrow, 6/10 at 3 PM EST!
Here’s a great review of Neofeud that was just published yesterday:
“From the makeshift, provisional, use-what-you-can-find architecture of the slums, through the neon-lit gangland underworld to the obscenely green grass of the skyborne islands, the art in Neofeud follows the modern trend of saturated dystopias such as Fury Road…”
“The conspiracy runs deep and is quite massive in scope. Politics meet technology, philosophy meets madness. But even beyond the intrigue itself the world of Neofeud is quite a detailed and intriguing construct, with its own history and lore…”
“Everything about the game just oozes the love for sci-fi: the literary cyberpunk and the 80’s and 90’s movies….”
