NEO Scavenger Officially Released
Game News - posted by Crooked Bee on Mon 15 December 2014, 22:02:14Tags: NEO Scavenger
The survival roguelike NEO Scavenger, featuring a complex crafting system and unique "1D" combat based on the distance from your opponent (yes, I took that description from our Steam curator page), has officially launched today after having spent some time in Early Access.
NEO Scavenger is my first commercially released game, and is a sort of love letter to the pen and paper role-playing games I grew up playing. In it, the player takes on the role of a character who wakes up in a strange facility where the world has experienced some cataclysm. Using their wits and anything they can scavenge from their surroundings, they explore this strange wasteland, piecing together clues about their past.
It's a hard game, where the player must take care to think of everything from dressing appropriately to disinfecting wounds. The story will not come spoon-fed to you, and the game will not hold your hand. But for those who are persistent and clever, rewards and answers await!
Aside from Steam, the game is also available on GOG.com.
