At first glance Neofeud looks kind of low budget and amateurish, but the more we look at it the more we realize that is exactly what we like about it. It has that gritty DIY feel that embodies the seedy underbelly of the cyberpunk genre. This isn’t high gloss Tron style cyberpunk – this is a game that was built illegally in back alleyways from ill-gotten parts. Created by a one man team under the name of Silver Spook Games, Neofeud instantly connects us back to what we loved about the genre during it’s heyday in the 80’s and 90’s. It’s very existence is a triumph of cyberpunk aesthetics and mechanics. Self published, anti-establishment, guerrilla marketed, off the beaten path. It’s cyber. It’s punk.
“Neofeud is a Dystopic Cyberpunk adventure game in the vein of Blade Runner, but with an overlay of Game of Thrones-like political intrigue, and 1366×768, hand-painted, stylized visuals. “
The game is available for standalone download at the price of $15. And the fact that it is released independently from clients like Steam or GOG only adds to it’s indie, anti-corporate vibe.
- 15+ hours of gameplay.
- An original dystopic sci-fi world and story that will (hopefully) make you question some of your core beliefs.
- Tricky yet satisfying, point-n-click detective work, interspersed with tense action shootouts.
- Handpainted, uber-gritty, noir futureland. Makes Mad Max and Rick Deckard crap their pants.
- Endless bombardment of witty one-liners from hardboiled cyberpunk.
