General Discussion / Re: Silver Spook Podcast
« on: 12 Jul 2018, 12:07 »


In this episode, Christian "Silver Spook" Miller talks to Jordi de Paco of Deconstructeam, the developer of "The Red Strings Club" - "a cyberpunk narrative experience about fate and happiness featuring the extensive use of pottery, bartending and impersonating people on the phone to take down a corporate conspiracy." Published under Devolver Digital, and named one of the "Best Games of 2018 So Far" by Gamespot!
 
I have played and loved this game, and highly recommend it to any cyberpunk, adventure, or visual novel fans.

Special AGS guests include Sick Chicken Studios, and a few others. :)

May be of interest to anyone developing or interested in getting into indie game development, especially regarding business, marketing, and attempting to make it as a sustainable indie game company, based on my own experiences running Silver Spook Games. Steam vs. Itch vs. Gog, crowdfunding, things to help get your game selling, when to expect it to sell, etc.

Thanks Kyriakos! I hope you do also. :)  Neofeud 2 is in the works of course and I hope to get it out as soon as I can.

Here are some tips, especially business and promoting, for indie game devs starting a company in 2018, from my own experience. Also, some of my top picks for indie games currently on sale, including AGS ones!

EDIT: Oops forgot the art!



Latest Neofeud 2 art! I call this, "The Wall".

I'm going to be livestreaming work on Neofeud 2 tomorrow and hanging out. Do stop in! https://www.youtube.com/user/twiliteminotaur

Also, if you'd like to be on the Silver Spook podcast,  I'm hoping to interview an indie cyberpunk/sci-fi gamedev or other creator during this big Itch & Steam Sale, to help boost some signal for fellow devs. Reply here or message, etc!

Here's that last podcast I did with William Gibson, author of Neuromancer, etc.: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HhkoIwKs5P

(Don't worry, you don't have to be a living cyberpunk legend or anything, lol)

My cyberpunk adventure game Neofeud about my experiences growing up a POC in an American ghetto then working with homeless and immigrants is on sale all over the place today! Any money that you give me (I am the writer/artist/programmer/etc.. all the money goes to me) is going to go straight into cleaning our water catchment tubes which are full of leaves, and so the water comes out like arboreal tea and smells like old dogs when we wash our clothes, lol. 😂 😭

I'm also featured in this article on Polygon discussing why big game companies deal so poorly with political topics and social commentary in games:

Quote
"Christian Miller released Neofeud, which melds politics and social ideas in a cyberpunk world. He says the way big companies address divisive issues is 'a little a silly. They want to say, "we’re just making fun entertainment." It’s disingenuous'"

Just bought this on Steam. :) Awesome work man.

Everyone should immediately go out and buy Shaun's awesome game. It was already super cheap, and worth 5x what you'll pay when it's on sale. (And I've said so more seriously in a Steam review, I mean it!)

Thanks everyone who has already bought and played Neofeud! If you liked the game and have a moment to leave a review, even a sentence or two, I would really appreciate it!

Is that Proto-J from the first Neofeud down in the lower right corner?

Very nice catch, mkennedy!

@Selmiak: Thanks for the suggestion, I see what you mean about the bus' position, will see about modifying the water level or bus level. The scene itself isn't quite final at any rate and I'll be adding and changing things a bit more before it's shipped.

@Blondbraid & Cassie: Thanks! :)

Thanks Cassie. :)  Here is another one!



Hand painting all of this for Neofeud 2 takes ages, but I'm always happy with the surreal/impressionistic effect. Trying to go for more something more consistent and readable, but still hallucinatory. Also, yes there may be a bit of a Monkey Island vibe going on here. I'm from an actual tropical island so I have all the reference in the world. :)

(Here's the still version)

Thanks Stupot! Yeah, they actually were distinct games at one point, but as of now they are the same game. It's better this way. :)

Here's the latest stream with a special shoutout for AGS's own Sick Chicken Studios upcoming epic p-n-c Guard Duty. Wishlist it now! :D



Also an update on the volcano that's erupting a few miles from us (we are ok!), and a bunch on Neofeud 2, etc..
