Silver Spook AKA Christian Miller
Christian Miller is a writer, artist, and game developer with a passion for creating works of depth and relevance. Growing up part Native Hawaiian, part Asian, and part white in Honolulu, Hawaii, living in a slum area of paradise while going to an upscale private school, he experienced a somewhat 'postmodern' and dissonant existence of clashing cultures, peoples, and extreme inequality. Inspired by games like Fallout, System Shock, and films like Aliens, The Matrix, Bladerunner, District 9, and Elysium, he has gone on to write stories and create games in the tradition of dark, cautionary, and (hopefully) groundbreaking science fiction. Neofeud is an adventure-puzzle game, and a labor of passion, that aspires to be complex, compelling, and challenging.
As a day job, Christian works as a STEM teacher for the underserved youth of Honolulu's inner city, teaching robotics, programming, and sustainability, trying to keep the kids out of gangs, off of drugs, and on a path towards better opportunities, such as the ones he has had. It is an often difficult, stressful, and even Kafka-esque endeavor -- being in one of the richest, most beautiful places on Earth, yet dealing with families with working parents, yet living out of a van, or sleeping on the street. These experiences are reflected in the art, stories and gameplay in Neofeud. Christian still lives in his home town of Kalihi Valley, with his loving, geeky, cosplaying Canadian wife, and two kids.

Hello Christian! Your Neofeud is a wonderful game and deserves the highest ratings. Tell me, would you like to localize it into Russian? Historically, we in Russia are treated with great love for point'n'click adventure, but only if the full adaptation of the text and sound. My name is Alexander, I'm an indie developer like you. In addition, I supervise high-quality translations of games into Russian. We are looking for pearl projects worthy of more public attention and help to enter the Russian market.ReplyDelete

Awesome game. Sadly not in a position to play it myself. So I bought the game on STEAM and watched a 7 hour walk through. Inspired me to start making one of my own point and click games. Been a fan since the first kings/space/police quest gamesReplyDelete
Wow, thanks a lot Agent O for getting the game even if you couldn't play it! And thanks for the kind feedback.ReplyDelete
I'm glad that it was an inspiration as well, as I was personally inspired by some other great modern indie point-and-click adventure throw backs, namely Technobabylon and Primordia. So it's good to continue passing on the proverbial torch!
Thanks again for your support, and best of luck with your own game endeavors.
