    all of them. you will die a milliondy times.

    no idea how long it looks for someone who can actually hope to get through it, but I've played it a few times a year since the original beta and I still get devoured before the plot actually starts much of the time.

    you should get it. it's ominous, it's got gorgeous sound and art design, it's hardcore in the most infuriating-in-a-way-that-makes-you-wanna-play-again-not-quit way. fantastic understated writing that exposes the world to you bit by bit in a constantly subversive way. just get it! it's cheap and it's worth it.

    Oh, I already have it. I just do not want to start a very long game knowing I will not have time to get immersed in it, so I stick to shorter ones these days.

    Ventured too far from my campsite and succumbed to stomach malady and blood loss. A refreshing twist for rogue-like lovers.

    (Didn't even have space to take the cell with me)

    BTW, the game has mods as well, some very nice: http://bluebottlegames.com/main/node/3414

    Extended NeoScav v2.9c adds a lot of new stuff, and makes the game even harder. On the bright side, you can ride a bike. AND ride it into battle - that's certainly new.

    I've bought it a week ago after trying the demo somewherea year ago (and already being excited back then). I heard it was close to release and I couldn't resist any longer.
    I didn't get very far yet but it's very interesting. I find myself constantly learning new things (I always die in under an hour irl). I'm kind of curious for what's out there as well. What a gem!
    I've played it almost daily since I got it.

    Can't... resist... anymore... Just bought it.

    A few hours in and this is addictive as fuck. So far this game oozes good gameplay.

    It's pretty tough to get any kind of established.

    I had some meat, fur and a tarp, some berries, mushrooms, a multi-tool, water & container, a couple of plastic bags and a sleeping bag. I could basically live there for some time holed up at the cryo center. Eventually tried gathering supplies, mostly looking for clothes and weapons. Some dogmen fucked me up good. I tied to hide in desperation as soon as I saw them but they found me. I had no chance to survive that encounter. Excellent.

    Highly recommend a combat oriented build, with much chasing down of NPCs and killing them for their loot.

    Get out and explore the world.

    What in the hell is the tarp for? I can't figure that out.

    Is there any kind of story to this game? Or just survival?

    I would expect that you can make a tent. I don't really know but it would seem logical.

    It's a component for a camp shelter thing you can use to keep you warm/protect you from rain/sleep better.

    Personally I endeavor to get enough clothing to just sleep comfortably in the middle of a flat field every night with no sleeping bag. At the point I played nothing was sneaky enough to move the ?50 steps it takes to reach melee distance without waking you if they randomly come across your tile in the dark.

    Yeah, this game is good. I have recommended it to several here at Obsidian.

    It is definitely easier to start off with melee, strong, and trapper. That fur coat at the beginning of the game insures your immediate protection from the elements.

    Yeah, I think it was either a proximate or at least secondary cause for one of my near-latest-version characters to die because I'd gotten foot blisters from wearing two right shoes.

    tarp can be used as cover in a campsite (when it's raining) if I'm not mistaken. Didn't try this yet but you probably just need to add it to the campsite you use and it'll boost some stat (I think).

    edit: It might have some other uses as well..
