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.
It means being erased, abused, annihilated physically, mentally, and spiritually. And having no idea who your abuser truly is. I still get into arguments with my mom and dad to this day, when I talk to them about decolonization.
(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.
