danger scavenger header


Deadly efficient. Highly skillful. Invisible to indifferent citizens. They fight the greedy corporations that have entire nations under their thumb. Suits scornfully called them Scavengers.

It was they who first noticed that the situation turned around. And it's the artificial intelligence A.I.O.N.E., who took over the control causing the machines to revolt against their masters.

The time has come. Step out of the shadow to face this new enemy in open battle.

Soon A.I. will have to learn how dangerous the Scavengers are.

Become one of the outcasts who doesn't like the state the world is in lately. Set out on the risky hunt in search of liberation and countless riches hidden in huge skyscrapers. The danger is so great that every Scavenger can change history forever... or become another forgotten scrap hunter.

You'll crawl higher than ever before.

Danger Scavenger is an intense cyberpunk-themed roguelite skyline crawler which takes you to the roofs of the breathtaking cyberpunk city, where you will face mighty enemies controlled by soulless AI.

Forget about crawling through the dungeons, caves and darkest pits of hell in search for adventures and treasures. The world has changed and new times are coming. You'll be going up and out of the underground to seek new horizons and possibilities.

Become one of the outcasts and set out on a risky hunt in search of liberation and countless riches hidden in huge skyscrapers. The danger is so great that every Scavenger can change history forever... or become another forgotten scrap hunter. Choose your path wisely - big rewards mean even bigger risks!

  • Dynamic risk-reward gameplay: choose your path wisely, face the challenges, and become the hero you always wanted to be! Or... pick the easy way and return with nothing.
  • 6 unique Scavengers to choose from - each one has its skills and style of fixing problems of the world: stealth, strategy, rapid-fire action or maybe a mix of them? You decide!
  • Team with up Scavengers to kick the corporation's ass in cooperation mode!
  • Defeat 5 greedy corporations. Face 30+ types of enemies, their special versions, and bosses. Choose from a large selection of 30+ various weapons, active and passive 50+ items/upgrades to buy or loot.
  • Unexpected item combinations that you'll discover during your adventures. Just like no two snowflakes are the same, you can never get the same build twice. Design your perfect strategy by many trials and errors, followed by many deaths, of course.
  • You'll crawl higher than ever before - Skyline Crawler takes you to the roofs of the breathtaking cyberpunk city, where you will face mighty controlled by soulless AI.
  • Join forces to kick corporation ass in co-op mode!

Star Drifters recap #2

Hello everyone! ๐Ÿ‘‹

The year 2022 is now a melody of the past.
We would like to thank all of you guys for supporting us since day one! ๐Ÿ™

Without further ado - let’s check out what happened in our camp during the second half of ‘22. Let’s go! ๐Ÿƒ‍โ™‚๏ธ

โš’๏ธ First Dwarf (...and some gaming events here and there! ๐ŸŽฎ)


In case you missed it - First Dwarf is our upcoming Action RPG set in the world of Driftland.

You’ll be able to pet a good boi in the game. Mhm. That’s right! ๐Ÿ•

First Dwarf - pet the dog

Now, let’s talk about the asymmetrical co-op ๐Ÿ‰ that we’re implementing in First Dwarf.


First Dwarf   co op

๐Ÿง‘‍๐Ÿค‍๐Ÿง‘ In co-op, players will be able to take control over the mech or one of its pilots: Tru or Ragna. Each of them has its own, separate skills to develop and upgrade. All characters have their strengths and weaknesses so it’s important to choose the characters wisely when preparing to complete certain tasks.

๐Ÿง‘‍ In a single-player game, the player can switch between characters, completing tasks with the one with better skills in a given field. Tru, Ragna, and the Mech will have different skill trees. Tru will be a better Mecha pilot, Ragna can e.g. fly, and the Mech can be treated as a kind of armored vehicle, so without a pilot it will not work.

It’s important to say that implementing the asymmetrical co-op would not be possible without the Game Prototype Design Competition 2022 in which we were awarded! ๐Ÿ†

Star Drifters   Copernicus Game

The competition mentioned above helped us create some new mechanics for First Dwarf. Those mechanics evolved into a full-fledged, asymmetrical co-op mode of the game, which we implemented in its build! Once again, thank you to the co-organizers of the competition: Ministry of Culture and National Heritage of Poland, Centrum GovTech Poland, and CRPK, as well as Copernicus Game Jam 2022 - during which the diplomas ๐Ÿ“œ were handed over and everyone who supported us along the way.

We showed our upcoming action RPG at many gaming ๐ŸŽฎ events, both digital and held in “real” places. Just to name a few:
- PAX West;
- Poznaล„ Games Arena (PGA);
- Indie Cade;
- DreamHack Beyond Indie Showcase;
- MIX Next 2022;
- Dev.Play;
- #PitchYaGame.

It’s time to focus on 3 of them.

๐Ÿš First stop - PAX West.


Lots of you came to our booth to check out an early build of our game. Thank you for that! See you next year! ๐Ÿคœ๐Ÿค›

Your reactions surpassed our expectations, and the feedback provided will certainly influence the further development of the game, already at this stage. It was 4 days full of interesting conversations, laughter and a unique atmosphere created by countless players, cosplayers, journalists, or industry representatives.๐Ÿค

๐Ÿš Second stop - Poznaล„ Games Arena (PGA).


In Poznaล„, we were showing First Dwarf, Scorchlands, Brewpub Simulator, and Lumencraft. PGA was such a blast! We felt your enjoyment brought to your faces by our upcoming games. Just look at Kuba, one of the members of our team - his smile does not lie ๐Ÿ˜Š

๐Ÿš The last stop - Dev.Play.


It’s a yearly celebration of indie games and their developers. Game creators from all over the world come to Bucharest to present their titles and experiences. The event ended with an award gala. First Dwarf received 3 awards: Best Game of the Show, Best Visuals, and Most Popular Game. ๐Ÿ† Thank y’all! ๐Ÿ™

Dev Play   Best Game of the Show

To wrap up the First Dwarf chapter of this recap we want to write about the key role of our IGN - Exclusive Announcement Trailer posted on IGN’s YouTube channel was viewed more than 285k times. There are also more than 5.4k thumbs up ๐Ÿ‘ under the video! ๐Ÿ“บ

๐Ÿฆ Scorchlands


Who won’t fall in love with birdlike Giwis, running around through the hexes? The game’s a wholesome and adorable city builder.


Play the demo version - is available for free here, on Steam!

At this point, we can say that developers from Ringlab โš—๏ธ are aiming for publishing more Steam News about in-game mechanics. When we’re writing these words, three of them are available as we speak: How the protagonist Giwi hatched, How to build your colony, and Gameplay Insight #1: Summoning the Nexus.

Stay tuned ! More of them will be published during January and February of 2023.

Also, the game received a warm welcome during #TurnBasedFest 2022! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

๐Ÿ•ท๏ธ Lumencraft


The full release of this unique mix of a top-down shooter with base building and roguelike mechanisms is just around the corner! Nonetheless, we’re not spoiling the release date at the moment. That’s not the only great news - something big is coming to the game. We bet you weren’t expecting this. Jump on the hype train, but stay calm. For now, let’s go down. Together. โฌ


The developers from 2Dynamic Games are constantly tweaking and upgrading the game’s build. You can help them by completing the survey they made - we’ll be very grateful for the feedback! It’s called Discord ๐ŸŽง survey, because the game’s community was the first one to answer the questions mentioned in it.

๐Ÿ‘‰ Link to Lumencraft survey: Docs.google.com

Lumencraft   Discord survey

One of the most important moments during the Early Access of Lumencraft was taking a different approach to the game's build. The experimental update published a few months ago left the beta stage. It's now living its new life - the developers called it Giga Update.

Lumencraft is reshaping every once in a while - two bigger updates and one smaller update were released since the release of Giga Update. There’s a lot of fresh content in the game - you should play it now, especially if you spent some time with Lumencraft a few months ago. It truly is worth revisiting! ๐Ÿ”

๐Ÿป Brewpub Simulator


There was a first, official playtest of the game - we’re glad how many of you decided to check out what it’s like to run a virtual pub and brew some virtual ale! A playable build of the game was presented to European audiences for the first time during PGA 2022. Thanks for playing it, we know what works and what needs some tweaking here and there! ๐Ÿบ

Brewpub Simulator   The perfect IPA

Our skyscraper roguelite shooter is out now on Epic Games Store! ๐ŸŽ‰

Danger Scavenger   Epic Games Store


Just a reminder - Danger Scavenger is available on PC, PS4, XONE, Nintendo Switch, Atari VCS, and XSX. It’s also a Steam Deck verified game - give it a try on one of the handhelds, and you’ll fall in love with this fast-paced gunslinger action!

This is not the last word we said speaking about publishing our games’ catalog on Epic Games Store - more titles will follow soon. At this point, you can wishlist First Dwarf โš’๏ธ and Scorchlands ๐Ÿฆ on this platform!

That’s all for today.
Great things are here, but also great things are yet to come.
2023 will be ours!

Don’t forget to support IndieDev! ๐Ÿ•น๏ธ

Much love,
Star Drifters ๐Ÿš€
