Neofeud bilboard ad or Blader inner style projected on the side of a skyscraper like the geisha. :)

Work-in-progress on a Neofeud 2 character design, "Egalite Enforcer". (She's not a giant robot, just trying to see how she blends color/value wise into the scene :) ) 

Neofeud 2: Novus Ordo Seclorum city in progress! I spent about 16 hours straight painting this and not quite done! DX But I am at least not beating myself up over having writer/painters block with this scene for about a week. Which sucks when you're the only person on the dev team, as you can't blame the slow progress on anyone else!

If you'd like to support this one-dev cyberpunk adventure game being completed, please consider getting Neofeud 1.  :) https://silverspook.itch.io/neofeud  There is also Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/neofeud

Greenscraper autonomous aircar system test! :D (From the sequel to #Neofeud) 

Here's the latest stream episode, where I delve into my art process, show some of the latest material on Neofeud 2, talk about the podcasts and feature some music by Primordia's James Spanos, Dimi Kaye, and my friend Scott Smigiel!

The Silver Spook Podcast has also been featured on the front page of Exilian, an awesome democratically-run online community! https://exilian.co.uk/index.php 

In this episode, Christian "Silver Spook" Miller talks to James Spanos, a game designer who worked on indie gems including Primordia, Cat Lady, Downfall, Until I Have You, and and an upcoming Wormwood Studios project. Topics include:

-Primordia, including interesting backstory on why Crispin "spins", the voice of Clarity, and what it's like to have people from around the world creating fan art of the game. -Some news on Wormwood Studios upcoming projects "Fallen Gods" and "Strangeland". -Until I Have You, James' solo-project and a great cyberpunk platformer that pays homage to everything from Strider and other 80's platformers and CP anime like Ghost in the Shell and Akira. -James' contributions to Cat Lady and Downfall, and some insight into how lead designer Rem Michalski's often rough experiencing working as a nurse and frequent coffee/smoke breaks helped take Cat Lady to the next level. -A wide range of cyberpunk and adjacent films, books, games and anime including Neuromancer, Idoru, Johnny Mnemonic, Terry Gilliam's Brazil, District 9, Perfect Blue, Metal Gear Solid, GITS, BR & BR 2049 (& many more) and the ways in which cyberpunk has been and remains relevant to society, the human (or trans-human) condition, and civilization. -Synthwave, and composition (both James and Christian composed the music for their own one-person projects).

Sorry that some of this interview was washed out by a sudden thunderstorm, drowning out our Greco-Hawaiian cyberpunk insights, like tears in rain...

Silver Spook Games' next project "Dysmaton": https://silverspook.itch.io/forgotten-city

Come one come all!  It will be streamed from my Youtube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/user/twiliteminotaur

I think they have great leadership and a great philosophy! And certain design decisions (like giving creators more control over how their content is displayed, being very indie-friendly, etc.) have helped a lot.

I really hope Itch keeps growing, it's my favorite game distribution platform.

No problem! I'm glad that solution got Neofeud working for you. Thanks again for buying the game!

(Edited 1 time)

OK, thanks for the info. I will look into this. Do you have Gatekeeper or any sort of anti-malware that might interfere? I heard one Mac user had to set Gatekeeper to allow apps to start from anywhere (temporarily) or it wouldn't load.

You may also want to try this:

There is a problem in Wineskin GPU detection code with High Sierra changes.
By default your wrappers may crash or fail to launch.
Currently you can work around this by launching Wineskin.app, going to Set Screen Options, and uncheck the Auto Detect GPU for Direct 3D option, and the wrapper should work normally.

No problem! Hm, I'm not sure that I have seen that error before, but what kind of system are you running this on? Also, at what point does this error happen, like right when you try to start the game?  There is some more troubleshooting help over here: http://steamcommunity.com/app/673850/discussions/0/1474222595293314624/

One thing you could try doing is changing some of the settings, like the video driver, resolution etc.

Hi Stavros,

Sorry about that! I have updated the page with a new demo download that should work for you. Use the first demo option (1 GB). 

Thanks for your interest in Neofeud! -Christian

It was a real treat to finally get to talk to the head of Wadjet Eye Games that published several of the games that got me interested in point-and-click adventures and inspired to create my own!

In this episode, Christian "Silver Spook" Miller talks to Dave Gilbert, head of Wadjet Eye Games, adventure game publisher of the Blackwell Series, Technobabylon, Primordia, Gemini Rue, Resonance, Shardlight, and their newest upcoming game, "Unavowed". Topics include:

-Unavowed, the next Wadjet Eye game featuring a new dark urban fantasy world, original story, and five party members. -The entire Wadjet Eye Games catalog, and the strengths of each developer. -The evolution of the indie game industry over the 12 years of WEG's existence. -The finer points of voice acting, writing, game design, game art -Running an indie game company while being a husband and parent, balancing / interweaving of personal life and game dev. -Dave being a merciless self-critic of his own games as Christian plays Angel's Advocate. -Top-secret literary references in the Blackwell Series, revealed!

In addition to working on Dysmaton, Neofeud II, and an as-yet unnanounced Deus Ex-1 like game (which you can learn a bit more about by becoming a patron!), I've also been trying my hand at some game journalism through the Silver Spook Podcast, and I've been livestreaming about once a week.  Here is the most recent podcast featuring Jonas Waever of The Nameless Mod:

(Edited 2 times)

"Neofeud's is a much more complex world than what is shown in Blade Runner, which inspires, and this game also poses itself as a more in-depth and realistic reflection of the dilemma insinuated by the replicants."

"From the point of view of music and dubbing Neofeud has nothing to envy of major titles"

Man I wish I spoke better Spanish so I could read this great Neofeud review in its native language, but thankfully there is Google translate!

The reviewer also compared Neofeud with Neil Blomkamp and District 9, which is a high complement for me, since I consider D-9 as one of if not the greatest sci-fi films of the past few decades.


Pretty cool idea! 

I'm not sure but I'm pretty sure I didn't add any keys there. I did try entering the in the url for my steam store in the section that says:

App store links
If your project is available on any other stores we'll link to it.

But then that didn't seem to show a link. Thanks for fixing the game state though. 

Hi, I noticed that under the purchase buttons on some game pages, it says, "Your purchase comes with a Steam key. " However, I don't remember enabling that, and I can't figure out what button or setting disables and enables that sentence. Thanks!

Today's stream! I lose my Wacom tablet drawing pen, talk weird Thanksgiving customs, and continue painting my cybergoth bartender chick. :)

Hey guys! I'm an indie dev on Itch.io and I've recently started a podcast where I talk to game makers, and other creators, usually in the cyberpunk/sci-fi genre (though not necessarily), to spread the word and also to connect with the community. I try to do about one a week, and figure I could help give back to the Itch community where I launched my first initial game by helping promote some of you guys.  If you're interested in potentially being on one of these, podcasts, let me know! 

Here are some of the recent podcasts:


Silver Spook Games

Hey guys! So in addition to continuing work on Neofeud and the sequel(s) I am also running this podcast where I interview game creators, writers and other creatives mostly in the area of cyberpunk and sci-fi (although not exclusively) to promote great indie projects, share audiences, and connect with the community. I am always on the lookout for future projects, so feel free to let me know if interested!

Silver Spook Podcast #10 - Spinnortality: a game where you play an evil megacorporation.

Just made this new Neofeud cover art for Itch.io, (where Neofeud is on sale, by the way!). Let me know what you guys think! 

I recently tried to add a Steam store link using the "App store links" section of the game editing interface. I don't see any link to the Steam store, but on my game page it says "In order to download this game you must purchase it at or above the minimum price of $X.XX USD. Your purchase comes with a Steam key. You will get access to the following files:"

I didn't mean for the user to get automatic access to a Steam key, and I can't figure out how to remove this sentence from my store page: "Your purchase comes with  a Steam key." Is there a way to take this down? 


First up, Neofeud is on sale right now!

In this dev stream, Silver Spook works on a cyberpunk character and shows some scenes from one of his previous games, involving half-cat transgenic girls and cyborg bartenders from 2011!

Here's another recent review that just came in for Neofeud:

"Neofeud is a dystopian cyberpunk adventure that needs to be experienced. [...]

When we think of a cyberpunk dystopia we imagine a world controlled by robots or an evil AI, and a place where humans are in the down low, trying to survive day by day in the gutter. What happens when someone turns these tropes to their head and this world is filled with discarded androids that live in slums, drug addicted and oppressed by multi billion neofeudal corporations? Neofeud, a cyberpunk point and click adventure created by Christian Miller offers an answer to this question. [...]

An adventure that will offer you many hours of play and it will make you think about our world and where it is heading. Not many indie games do that, and it is really important."


Silver Spook Live #25 - Silver Spook Cosplays a character from Neofeud! And re-enacts some scenes from the game in this Halloween special. :)

Hey all! Long time no post! Dysmaton progress is progressing as fast as humanly possible, as I'm also working on publicizing the other (completed) Silver Spook Game, Neofeud. Here's a little teaser of some of the most recent work that I'm pretty happy with:

I call this one, "Sun Goddess".  It took me a loooooong time to sort this out, about two weeks in all, but I think I've finally nailed what I was envisioning. Yes, there is some definite Blade Runner 2049 influence in there as I had seen the movie twice during the course of working on this. And the scene is definitely suppose to exude that Tyrell/Wallace "timeless, near-godly grandeur".

I'm going to look into animating the reflections in that pool of water there.  If I can get Roger Deakins or Ridley Scott to help me with the gold-aquatic lighting, it would also be much appreciated, lol.

Is there any way to get the ratings and reviews to show up on the game page? Would be nice to have the option to show them, to give potential players to try/buy the game. Thanks!

Neofeud is just $9.90 for the next week! If you've been considering picking it up, now would be a great time!

Here are some other recent reviews that have just come in on Neofeud:

A Diamond Of Storytelling In The Scrap Pile "When I play a game, I play to be compelled or immersed in some way. The game has to dig its claws in and drag me in. Walking away has to be difficult or that’s exactly what I’ll do. Neofeud grabbed me in just that way through its gripping mastery of storytelling, akin to how last I binged on episodes of Game of Thrones. Neofeud is a point-and-click game set in a sci-fi dystopia borne of the minds of every prominent science fiction writer from the past century, from H.R. Giger to Ridley Scott. The result is a disturbing yet strangly familiar dystopian society in which social inequality is systemic, the top one percent have their own one percent, and the birth of A.I has resulted in a massive population of unemployed sentient robots. Sound interesting? We're only just dipping our toes. Beginning by introducing the main character of the story, an ex-cop and currently social worker named Karl Carbon, the story of Neofeud quickly explodes into a story rife with psuedoscience and more twists than an M. Night Shamlyan movie. As a single conspiracy unfolds, others follow, creating a story layered so deep that by the halfway mark of Neofeud’s potential 15-hour game time I found myself questioning characters motives even more than the main character of the game itself. Past endless conspiracies and a spiraling story, the characters of Neofeud are developed so much more than characters in nearly any other game I’ve recently played. Karl and the cast that he interacts with are human to a tee. Interactions with them are immersive and real, a necessity when a majority of the game is dialogue."


Neofeud is science fiction at it’s most raw and visceral. [...]
Neofeud is the debut game of native Hawaiian, Christian Miller. It’s an ambitious project, drawing on personal experience as a STEM teacher for underprivileged kids in Honolulu as well as a wide array of popular sci-fi films and books. The aesthetic is heavily skewed towards Blade Runner or The Fifth Element, while the story is reminiscent of Fritz Lang’s Metropolis and the film version of I, Robot.
Players take on the role of Karl Carbon, a police officer turned social worker. I was immediately hooked by this detail. I had expected to play a character akin to Decker in Blade Runner; a sort of rogue-cop with good intentions. There are definitely cop-like qualities about Carbon, but he’s a social worker through and through. And this makes for a compelling story, and some truly heartbreaking gameplay.
Drawing from personal experience, Miller has delivered us a story that is so much more than “humans vs. automations.” Carbon has cybernetic enhancements, but they’re obsolete and he can’t afford to replace them. He works with AIs and robotic entities that society has deemed “defective” and “unhireable.” He understands what it’s like to be cast aside and denied resources at every turn.


Neofeud takes place in a dystopian future where faulty sentient robots and failed human hybrids form the bottom layer of society, while neofeudal lords live carefree in luxurious floating cities. The extensive storyline is very political, but also full of action and really entertaining. This game is an impressive piece of work, since it’s quite excellent on many facets. [...] This spectacular and complex story will take at least 12 hours to play through, and the writing is excellent and enjoyable. The characters are fun, the setting is really interesting so you’ll want to learn more about it, and there’s always so much happening which makes you want to continue playing to see where the story will take you next.
