"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

I often alter presentation in the middle of streams. I'm in support of LGBTQ+ rights generally, but this is also about self-decolonization & reclamation of gender-fluid Hawaiian culture that was stolen from me. Hawaiian language was banned by the US, when I was born.

Neofeud is a cyberpunk game that was done on release. Now that's PUNK! lol

Trans, non-binary and gender-fluid people were and are accepted in Hawaiian culture (i.e. mahu), and play vital roles in our resistance against colonization & US genocide of Hawaiians. Strict binary gender is a deeply Western, imperial concept, forced upon us.

More on Hawaii that had universal healthcare 25 years before the West, invented submarines before Jules Verne published 20,000 leagues, and had full citizenship & equality for Black, Asians as US / Canada enslaved, segregated and exploited both for profit.

More about the experiences of living under ongoing US illegal occupation, banned Hawaiian language and culture, impoverishment, in an anti-imperialist, anti-capitalist cyberpunk game 'Neofeud' that I made while homeless/underhoused & working full-time:

The phrase closest to 'man up' in Hawaiian is 'ku kanaka' - 'stand up like a human'. The word for parent, 'makua' is gender-neutral. Most names are also gender-neutral, i.e. Mahealani. More: 'Māhū Resistance Challenging Colonial Structures of Power&Gender'

Neofeud is anti-capitalist, anti-racist & anti-imperialist cyberpunk. I'm a Native Hawaiian who made this game while working 40+ hrs in social services / teaching in ghettos, while homeless. Neofeud is my life, in art. Thread 1/?

A broken monarchy is right twice a century.

Homeless polymimetic gynoid: "'Artisan gestator' was my official title. They have stand-alone artificial wombs, grow heirs in your parlor. But for the Neofeudal elite, a handmaiden is a status symbol. Sadistic-ass Earthlings."
