Post news Report RSS Support Silver Spook Games - Check Out Neofeud!

Deus Ex 1 is hands down my favorite game of all time. Terminus Machina was a pure labor of love that I essentially developed on my own for the most part. While I cannot guarantee that there will ever be a longer version of Terminus Machina, a sequel, etc., I can say that if enough folks support Silver Spook Games by picking up Neofeud, it will increase the probability greatly of more Terminus Machina or games like Terminus Machina.

Apparently, there have been many fans who have picked up Neofeud, who started out as fans of Terminus Machina. I should start off with the fact that Deus Ex 1 is hands down my favorite game of all time. Terminus Machina was a pure labor of love that I essentially developed on my own for the most part.

The reason development on Terminus Machina ceased, was due to the amount of time it was taking and the lack of funding to support my game development endeavors. But in the last couple years, I have been working on a new game, with many of the same cyberpunk, and gritty realism of Terminus Machina, but in a point-and-click adventure game. This game is called Neofeud, and has just been released to Steam this Tuesday, September 19.

While I cannot guarantee that there will ever be a longer version of Terminus Machina, a sequel, etc., I can say that if enough folks support Silver Spook Games by picking up Neofeud, it will increase the probability greatly of more Terminus Machina or games like Terminus Machina. Deus Ex is still my home territory, and I'd like to produce more games like Terminus Machina, but a lot of that hinges on the success of Neofeud commercially, as does Silver Spook Games as a company.

At any rate, Neofeud will be on sale during launch week at 20% off. The base price is $15, so you can get the game at a steal of just $12 for 15+ hours of gameplay, according to latest estimates! The Neofeud soundtrack, which includes 45 tracks and 2 1/2 hours of music will also be available for purchase on Steam.

In addition, here is a video of the most recent Silver Spook livestream / launch party for the game, in which a lot of Deus Ex and cyberpunk-related topics were discussed.

So, thank you again to all of you Terminus Machina fans and supporters who have stuck with me over the years. That list includes AlvinD2008 Dentonoid JCDenton2000 xen0phile and last but not least, the great ham sandwich master, FastGamerr.

It is truly unfortunate that the Deus Ex franchise has been put on hiatus. The world needs more games that took those sorts of bold risks, especially in the cyberpunk genre, which I think is losing some of the 'punk' and edge that really defined the game as well as cinematic and literary genre.

I truly do have even bigger creative visions for games than Terminus Machina and Neofeud, and I hope to one day be able to make them a reality. And perhaps one day this will happen, with your help.

So please, let's make cyberpunk great again, together! :)

P.S. - Please let Blade Runner 2049 not suck horribly. K thx!

This is my first ever time hearing about this game and its already been released for a day. It has no pre-release reviews and no buzz surrounding it, so that makes me worried if full extent of marketing has been applied to this game at all.

Now, I might be mistaken and my worries are misplaced, but just in case, refer to this resource to boost the game's public awareness:

I was actually advised to have all the reviews come out on release day by someone who works as a PR person in the industry :O I spent literally eight or more hours a day for the last month trying to get the game reviewed and talked about by literally hundreds of sites, Youtubers, streamers, bloggers, podcasts, etc., and have been posting it on my Twitter, FB, and everywhere that I possibly can. I haven't been able to get articles in RPS, PC Gamer, IGN or any of those big sites, but it's not for lack of trying! Anyway, sorry you didn't hear about the game beforehand. But it would help if you could tell anyone
who might be interested. :)

Really bummed that Neofeud hasn't gotten more attention! :[ I helped you out with my Twitterings (back when I still used that site), but it turns out my moment of attention spotlight was switched off permanently when 2013 (still the best year in my life!) ended, so it wasn't much of a boost. Sorry!

But as always, I'll tip my ham sandwich (actually a chicken sandwich D:) to you, SilverSpook. I dang well hope Neofeud will really take off at some point! :]

I am still hopeful for the revolution, brother! And thanks again for all your support!

On that note, check out this awesome review from IndieGames.com

"This is an ambitious, atmospheric cyberpunk scenario and essentially the work of a single person (voice acting excluded). Oh, and it might also be one of the best adventure games I have played in a while, so there's that."
Granted, a lot of this is "just" good cyberpunk in the vein of Gibson, ****, and Stephenson. However, the world building is something else. It has a thickness, a density to it. Almost every line of the game's technobabble fleshes out the game world some more. If that's your thing, the game is immensely enjoyable."
