How long can you survive the post-apocalyptic wastelands of NEO Scavenger? In the near-future, supernatural activity and human warfare have fragmented mankind into pockets of civilization struggling to survive in wild and dangerous lands. You awaken alone in an abandoned facility with no food nor water, and only a hospital gown and some mysterious items as clues to your identity. NEO Scavenger is a game where you must survive in the wasteland long enough to figure out who you are. Each turn you must decide where to go, how to scavenge for supplies, and how to deal with anything and anyone you encounter. And with each passing minute, the pit in your stomach grows, your dehydration worsens, your muscles tire, and your body temperature drops in the cold autumn air. Choose your starting abilities carefully, because they and your wit are the only tools you have in the apocalypse!

Games like this are few and far between. It's very niche but if you like cyberpunk/apocalypse/indie/rpg/survival and value immersion... buy this!

I dont know....everytime I pick the melee skill at the beginning, I think its worthless. I miss so often in the fights, I asked myself if it is a negative skill, but seems like this should be a useful skill instead of a negative one.......but it just doesnt. fights really drag out and it doesnt help that there is no tutorial.
How do I search for an animal? I had once the option but it does nothing.
Well I purchased the full game, so I guess I have to get the hang of it. It is a great game, but not really user friendly.I also thought this is a random generated world, but it surely isnt. And its painful to start over and over again, seeing the exact same things. Even the bandit appears everytime in the first village. The replayability isnt that high. Would say for now 4/10 but I am willing to play on and see if things change.

I am enjoying this game so much it's criminal. It's a throw back to the old games I used to love and the combat system with different body parts and afflictions are one of my favorite styles (I miss the MUD Gemstone 3)! Not to mention it truly defines survival, a lot of times on fresh starts I'd freeze to death on the first night since I couldn't find proper clothing, now that's realistic. There's a lot of potential here and I can't wait to see what the devs do with it.

A true survival game, with attention to detail. You don't survive forever. Nobody does. But you do what you need to, in order to last as long as you can.

NEO Scavenger has come a long way so far and I hope that it will continue to progress. Anyone who is a fan of roguelikes or anyone who has had trouble playing roguelikes in the past due to the steep learning curve should give this game a shot.

Just prepare to die. You will drown in your internal hemorrhages on more than one occasion. Or fall unconscious and get your head stomped in. Or die of exposure.

Really love this game.Its lots of fun even for it being in alpha.A few problems I have with it are things like how you have to have a crafting recipe for basic things.Knowing how to make a campfire,put water purifcation tablets in water,even cook food in a pot.Lack of many sorts of wild animals for you to be able to hunt or encounter that are hostile also is a downer for me.Fights sometimes can take 20-30min (real life) sometimes to which I think is far to long for fighting to the death.

Worrying about food,getting sick,getting poisoned,certain types of injuries such as concussions,bleedings,internal bleeding,breaking a limb,etc are in the game.Freezing,getting hypothermic, and other weather related injuries are in the game.Not sure if there are full seasons in the game I have only seen rain so far.There are far more survival things in the game like leaving tracks,finding tracks and being able to cover your tracks which make it a solid survival game.

Game is still in alpha so many things are subject to change and these things I mentioned are more lil ticks I have about the game.Everything else about it I love and hope to see more content of.For a alpha game to get a score of 8/10 is a good sign for anyone wanting a survival sim.When its no longer in alpha and has fully released I am sure I would re-rate it a 10/10 as far as survival games go.
