If you have $4 and like cyberpunk, help me put some food in my kids' mouths!
"This is secretly the greatest and also funniest cyberpunk point and click adventure game on Steam. Very low-fi art style but the gags are just too good to pass up, and a lot closer to a "real" cyberpunk dystopian future than most favorites of the genre."
"Y’all SERIOUSLY need to play Neofeud
Corporate imperialism, eco-fascism, disability rights, wealth disparity, the school-to-prison pipeline, systemic racism in law enforcement and family law, veteran mental health and poverty....it’s all there" --Steamshovelers
Like #cyberpunk but don't got 60 bucks? Wanna support indiedevs that don't crunch workers and exploit marginalized communities? Neofeud is 70% off ($4.50)!

What the fuck, Cyberpunk 2077?
"features a rapid onslaught of white and red blinking LEDs, much like the actual device neurologists use in real life to trigger a seizure when they need to trigger one for diagnosis purposes"
My thread of some cyberpunk games that don't crunch their workers for billionaire profit, promote transphobia, and aren't hyper-seizure inducing. https://twitter.com/SilverSpookGuy/status/1336386149959417856?s=20
CP 2077 is directionless Dad Rock with a thick candy coating of superficial neon, mohawks, shiny cyborg parts, scrubbed of meaning and 'politics', strewn together as a billionaire private jet payment scam and RP1-esque weapon of mass-distraction to make insulin-rent with Twitch subs, till total neofeudal collapse under mass eviction, pandemic and civil war.
It's distorted non-cyberpunk bread/circus for the in-situ slow-mo apocalypse till Libya-ization of the US.
Can't seem to shed tears for the two billionaires at CP 2077's CD Projekt, who lost a few million from a 30% stock plummet on egregious glitches, who *still* have superfreighters full of investor $$$, much of which has already been liquidated for mansions and private jets.
Let me brain-mail the black clinic doc to upgrade my cyber-tear ducts. The Weep-o-matik is all drekked up, chummer! https://www.ign.com/articles/cd-projekt-red-stock-decline-cyberpunk-2077
Refunding Cyberpunk 2077 and buying some non-megacorp sweatshop-made, non-transphobic cyberpunk games is cyberpraxis.
Things got more bugs than the reconstituted cockroach prisms in Snowpiercer anyway.
@silverspookgames there is so much to unpack here.
Ultimately, I feel sorry for the employees who were just doing their jobs - with many free extra hours during crunch I assume - and now risk being jobless and get threats on the internet on top of it!
I have been told that the game, when you ignore bugs, is beautiful, and I am sad that the beauty, a product of hard work and passion, will be lost in a sea of launch issues.
