"The works of William Gibson, games like Deus Ex were the building blocks that create the world of Neofeud... A dystopian cyberpunk adventure that needs to be experienced." --Hyper Light Up

I'm Chris, a POC from a US ghetto, worked as a social worker and STEM teacher for poor, homeless, immigrant and largely non-white kids in America's inner-city slum. I'm a one-person indie game dev, and my games are personal reflections of my experiences.

I've been doing gamedev for 25+ years, my largest project to date is Neofeud, a cyberpunk adventure game. I made it while teaching full time, and homeless, w/ my wife and kids living in the back of a Mazda Tribute. Cuz America.

July 4, Hawaii, Independence 

Imagine a Native American community who had a Disneyland-like resort built over their villages and ancestor's graves, the people made to do bastardizations of their sacred dances, wear mock 'sexy feather headresses' and entertain the rich tourists for starvation wages, 12 hours a day 7 days a week, living sardine-packed 20-to-a-house. And then be arrested for speaking their own language. It'd be an outrage, right? But that is just everyday life, in US-colonized Hawaii

The Holy Roman Supremacist Capitalist Empire became the Christian British Supremacist Capitalist Empire becomes the Holy Italian Supremacist Capitalist Empire. Nothing has ever progressed in the West in 2000+ years.

TFW your cyberkid could be confiscated cause CPS sus out your License to Self-Replicate came from an 'uncertified' Planned Robo-Parenthood clinic.

I mean this is literally what IndigiStar deals with: the demonization and 'unprofessional'-ization of indigenous tattoos, patterns, beauty norms, gender, architecture, dress, et cetera as part of settler plundering of our lands, resources and people. Apple is continuing cultural genocide by artificially 'intelligent' means.

"The dazzling lights of Neoliberon are the anglerfish lure. The city inhales people, exhales imperial fire across the galaxy. Refugees from war-torn planets crawl in. Rinse, repeat."

Actual Artificial Intelligence requires Decolonized Intelligence. You can't win an AI arms-race when you operate under Western barbaristic arms-race paradigms. Otherwise you get mega-servers full of Synthetic Stupidity and Software Sociopathy. youtu.be/mrrGnUdIxBU

Indigenous faces don't count as human faces to Apple?

Digi-genocide, Techno-colonialism.

IndieDev @silverspookgames hits one out of the park. As subversive as #cyberpunk should be and more. A great 'click on' game.

@silverspookgames related: In the West, body modifications like tattoos and piercings make you less likely to get through job interviews and are generally seen as very unprofessional. This is because they are associated with, one, indigenous people and people of colour, and two, poor people.

In contrast, other body modifications like nose jobs, facelifts, fillers, botox, etc are done mostly by rich white people, so they are seen favourably.

Yt person: "Akxually that's a particularity of biometric algorithms????? DUH!!!"
Except there are already AAN-trained apps that can digitally erase tattoos for detection, plus there are failsafe work-arounds for indigenous Maori, Kanaka Maoli people so we don't get locked out of our devices with a 'That's me' button. It's just West-centric yt-cis-male dominated tech industry and data sets don't care about indigenous people and participate in their erasure.
Yt person: "No, ur dumb. Facepainting savage."
Ok racist.
