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/?
My friends in the neighborhood lived 20-to-a-house surviving on ramen and spam from foodstamps, just dirt
poor. On weekends we would run through the forest barefoot, playing games like, “rock war” which involves whipping rocks at each other and trying not to get bloodied. x/?
The public schools teach even less. Hawaiian language itself was *illegal* to speak in Hawaii till 1986, & in 2018, a professor from Maui (Kalekoa Ka'eo) was arrested for speaking Hawaiian in a courtroom (despite Hawaiian being an official language here).
"Aloha" and here's a lei for you as you get off of your air conditioned plane with a fake Hawaiian woman on the side of it, owned by a white man in a mansion with a gaudy golden bird-of-paradise gate who makes 3 million a year.
(I should also note that if you're Native Hawaiian / Pacific Islander you're 6 times more likely to be shot by police per-capita than white people, much more likely to be in poverty & homeless -- so 'Great' to be an American State, huh?)
Also, the illegal US occupiers police round up more Brown and Black children *in schools* for prison than any other US state.
@silverspookgames thanks for this. It's interesting to read your story. Good for you for making a creative response to what sounds like a really difficult situation. Something I have struggled with in my life are what are thought of as severe mental health problems, diagnosed currently as schizophrenia. I think something there is in common is the sense of not being treated as a full person and also not being believed when you try to talk about your experiences in your own terms.
@silverspookgames something I find is that there always seems to be someone who thinks they are the expert on how I should be looking at my situation, but not many really have the time to listen to me when I talk from my own point of view. I don't know if this is something you experience?
@silverspookgames I guess NeoFeud is your way of telling your story in a way where people *will* listen?
@silverspookgames thank you for sharing your story. I would come give you a hug in Hawaii once I'm fully vaccinated, if I could afford to visit.
@silverspookgames absolutely moving thread, comrade, from a puerto rican to a hawaiian i hope one day soon both our homelands are free of the americans.
