"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.

We're in something worse than 1984 quite soon. Surveillance and control apparatus are already lightyears in advance of any Stasi wet dream. Now it's just cooking frog in pot.

Social ranking / ubiquitous surveillance to filter the middle / upperclass such that only lapdogs get mortgages, afford private schools, 6-figure jobs, will ensure this.

It's not doomsaying, it's just journalism; something wiped out by capitalist capture of info dissemination

Progress is progressing! We're slowly improving all our characters and configuring them for voiced dialog.

Also we just hired on a new animator, and might have some big funding on the horizon, fingers crossed!

Crafting system for the cyberpunk RPG where you play a homeless starving hacktivist, make weapons out of garbage. (This is the Deus Ex total conversion, but we'd like to have that level of necessary complexity of UI make a comeback).

"Forty. Five. Seconds. To. Deliver." The Deliverator app on Xze's shitty last-gen burner demanded in a weird Earth accent, a country called Hogwarts or Narnia or something. Xze double-timed it, hurdling a pile of asleep or dead Synderian refugees collecting flies. Knocked over a Sagittaire street preacher soap-boxing the "Return of the Final God Machine" into an autonomous payday loans kiosk and its rack of explosive indenture-collars.

Saying things ironically is still saying them, and NOT saying things is still not saying them.

Concealing your anti-capitalist, anti-military-industrial-complex message in obscurantism and stretched metaphor while the ludonarrative is "assault rifles, bombs are cool, capitalism gets shit done" so you can get millions of dollars from capitalists to fund your film/game project and sanctioning from the US military, gov, and aircraft carriers for your money shot is still being a complicit coward.

Things I hope to accomplish or see in my lifetime:

A science fiction action product that is playable/watchable and actually anti-capitalist and anti-imperialist.

It can happen.
