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/?
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.
cry into our ramen and get diabetes, dying at 39.
This is what being indigenous Hawaiian has meant. It's meant having no idea who the hell you are. Because who you are has been obliterated.
(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.
It's a very difficult scene which many people have cried through, or said that they felt like throwing up -- but at the same time, they also say it's the best or most important scene in the Neofeud. Cyberpunk should involve *facing* reality, not escaping into neon themeparks x/?
& stopping desecration on our sacred mountain, Mauna Kea, by US military B-52h stratofortress airstrikes, and obsolete telescope by obsolete telescope
projects that are useless to the astronomers, but lucrative for six-figure University Admins and Silicon Valley billionaires.
So yeah, that's Neofeud. It's definitely political cyberpunk, anti-capitalist, anti-racist, anti-imperialist, from first-hand experience. Help us keep a roof and feed kids and such and keep working on Neofeud 2. :)
@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.
