"No Crisis Yet" Interview

23 julho 2014

Hey Folks!

I was interviewed by No Crisis Yet!

A couple weeks ago, Jon Lynch discovered NEO Scavenger by accident, and was dumbfounded by how many hours he found himself sinking into the game. So he and Ben decided to make their show's first guest the dev behind this crazy "wasteland shoe peddler" game, yours truly :)

It's about 30 minutes of talking to me, followed by a discussion of Divinity: Original Sin and Yogventure. In it, I talk a bit about my choices, background, and mistakes. If you have some spare time, give it a listen!

Have a good night, all!

I'm Back! And Dev Continues.

16 julho 2014

Hey Folks! Hope everyone had a good week. Our wedding was an unqualified success, and we had a great time seeing friends and family. It was a pretty crazy week, as you'd probably guess!

Now that I'm back, dev continues. And I decided to share a sneak peek to whet your appetite for the upcoming build:


A little bit of shiny, and a little bit of ominous.

These are some bits of content I was working on today to make things more interesting. As mentioned last week, the Great Black Swamp now has a new scavenge locale to make it worth exploring. That was a good start, but I decided there should probably be more. A sort of "unicorn" that one rarely sees, but is worth seeking out.

The image on the right is one such "unicorn," and finding it may turn out to be a big payday. Not only that, but it also may contain a hint of history and lore, too!

And on the left? Let's just say that it's a relic of days long passed...

In addition to the new content above, I also decided to take players' feedback to heart regarding the combination of surrendering and Merga Wraiths.

Players who surrender in battle are often killed immediately by the wraith when it appears. This is especially true if the player is surrendering because they are crippled or otherwise weak. Basically, surrender is an invalid option in many cases when it should be viable, and this is mainly due to the talisman disappearing.

Instead, I decided to take their suggestion to make the talisman ignored by the surrender code. It's a bit unrealistic, but it plugs a huge hole in the game design with very little effort. A worthy trade, if you ask me.

Also, while I was in there, I tweaked the wraith to prefer advancing to charging. Wraiths are supposed to be a bit more reserved and confident, and it betrays that image when they run. Making them prefer advance fixes this image problem, and also gives players a bit more of a chance to postpone their death by escaping combat more often.

We'll see if it was enough of a change, or too much. Hopefully, it's just the right balance!

That's all for today. More to come tomorrow!

Note: Normally, these daily devlog posts are exclusive to the Blue Bottle Games website. However, since I was away for a whole week, I decided to cross-post this announcement and the last so Steam folks would know why I was so quiet lately.

I should be back to normal again now, so if you want to continue reading daily devlog updates, be sure to check out the Blue Bottle Games website!

Sobre o jogo

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!

Current Features

  • Unique Setting - Near-future, post-apocalyptic Michigan with local cryptids and folklore. And something else beneath the surface...
  • Turn-Based Play - Take your time with each turn, and play at your own pace. Save and quit when you want, and resume later.
  • Permadeath - If you die, that's it. NEO Scavenger is balanced around a single difficulty level: permadeath. Your save will be deleted if you die. So choose every action carefully!
  • No Grinding - There is no XP in NEO Scavenger. No levelling-up. Instead, progress comes from learning how to play the game better, and using your strengths to your advantage.
  • Semi-Random - Much of the map is randomized each game, including the location of ruins, creatures, weather, and certain quest branches.
  • Sandbox or Story - Search for clues to your identity, what happened, and who's hunting you. Or simply test your mettle against man and nature alike. Play how you want!
  • Skills and Flaws - Choose skills and flaws each time you play. Different combos unlock different abilities and quest branches.
  • Crafting - Extensive crafting system which allows for substitutions of similar items. Make a rifle scope from half a pair of binoculars, or a noise trap from a pill bottle and pebbles.
  • Desperate Combat - Detailed combat with moves like "Tackle," "Lure," "Kick While Down," "Demand Surrender," and "Threaten."
  • Realistic Wounds - Creatures have complex wound simulation, with multiple wound locations, infection, bleeding, and pain management.
  • Realistic Metabolism - Hypothermia, fatigue, thirst, hunger, disease, intoxication, shelter...everything is tracked.
  • Realistic Inventory - Complex inventory system with slots for holding, wearing, containers, and more. Fit items in grid spaces, and manage encumbrance.
  • Hex-Based World Map - Navigate ruins, hills, forests, and plains in a hex-based map. Line-of-sight, elevation, and daylight matters.
  • Tracking - Creatures leave their tracks and spoor on the map, which can be followed by others. Players can also hide their tracks.
  • Hiding - Players can use hiding to avoid being seen while traveling the map, as well as during story encounters.
  • Hunting - Trap small game for food and fur, or track and kill larger prey on the map for butchering.
  • Hacking - Use hacking skills to unlock scavenged laptops, cellphones, smartphones, and tablets. Mine them for paydata, or snoop through personal files.
  • Foraging - Search for edible plants and water, and use special skills to identify what's safe to eat.
  • Haunting Soundtrack - Music composed by Josh Culler, specifically for NEO Scavenger, plays periodically, lending an atmosphere of loneliness and desperation.
  • Creature AI - Wandering creatures go about their own business, hunting, scavenging, and hoarding. Morale affects their choices, and some will gang-up and cause trouble.
  • Dynamic Weather - Temperature, rainfall, and night/day are based on real-world data for autumn in the area. If you live long enough, you may see snow fall.
  • Detroit - Take refuge from the wasteland in one of mankind's last bastions of safety. Buy supplies, get medical care, and seek clues in a cyberpunk-styled city.

Não é um jogo para todos, mas, aqueles que se interessarem por uma espécie de simulador de sobrevivência num universo pós apocalíptico (com toques de cyberpunk) e que não tenham problemas em enfrentar um curva de aprendizado bem brusca (ou seja, prepare-se para morrer MUITO) irão deleitar-se com um jogo que pega elementos de Fallout (os dois primeiros, vide o cenário), Civilization (mais pelo esquema de turnos e mapa com hexagramas), roguelikes (como Nethack, Rogue, Dungeons of Dredmor, etc.), simuladores de sobrevivência com elementos de crafting (Minecraft, Stranded II, Schiffenbruch, etc) e mistura tudo isso num conceito novo. Jogadores mais hardcore que gostem das séries Jagged Alliance, X-COM e Heroes of Might Magic também poderão achar aspectos interessantes nesse jogo, guardadas as devidas proporções.
É um jogo difícil, de gráficos simples, ainda em fase de desenvolvimento, e como já disse, não é algo para todos, mas, aqueles que persistirem e aprenderem a apreciar os detalhes do jogo verão que as suas sucessivas mortes são geralmente resultado de suas escolhas, e não da sorte. A cada novo jogo, um jogador perseverante irá aprender novas táticas. estratégias e cada vez mais entenderá como funciona o universo de NEO Scavenger.
Você basicamente começa semi-nu, sem saber de nada, num mundo devastado e cheio de horrores, sem aliados, sem ferramentas (salvo certa seleção de habilidades), enfrentando um clima impiedoso (maldita hipotermia!!!), outros pobres diabos tentando sobreviver como você e criaturas mutantes. O clima de paranóia é constante, o desespero em achar o segundo par de sapato é palpável, aquele momento em que você está morrendo de sede e tem que decidir tentar a sorte com um ambiente hostil ou beber aquela água de procedência duvidosa parece durar horas...
Grande jogo, mas, jogadores que não gostem de títulos modestos (e por isso sem amarras de contentar a todos), estranhos (e por isso mesmo cheios de personalidade) e difíceis (pois não te pegam pela mão), evitem. Fazendo uma comparação cinematográfica, está muito mais para "A estrada/The Road" do que para Mad Max.

Que bela surpresa tive ao jogar NEO Scavenger. Em muitos aspectos ele é bem parecido com Wasteland e Fallout, mas apresenta uma boa dose de originalidade em suas mecânicas. É uma mistura de RPG antigo, TBS estilo Civilization e jogo de tabuleiro com uso constante de textos para passar ao jogador cada detalhe do mundo desolado a ser explorado. Sobre a história, o melhor é experimentar e não falar muito para evitar spoilers.

Basicamente você assume o papel do sobrevivente de um holocausto sem saber quase nada sobre o passado ou o que fazer em seguida. Logo no começo é possível escolher as habilidades do seu personagem e com isso mudar radicalmente o tipo de experiência ao longo do jogo. Por exemplo, pode criar um sobrevivente especializado em combate que mata e pilha outros sobreviventes. Um hacker com conhecimentos de mecânica e eletrônica que pode fazer um bom uso dos aparelhos eletrônicos ainda existentes no mundo desolado. Pode ainda criar um personagem do tipo caçador furtivo que evita contato com outros NPCs e faz uso dos recursos naturais para sobreviver, entre outros.

O jogo não segura a sua mão com tutoriais nem tampouco faz por você o que você deve descobrir experimentando. E esse processo de aprendizagem é bem brutal, pois envolve incontáveis mortes por hipotermia, fome, sede, exaustão, ferimentos, etc. No entanto, a partir do momento que você começa a dominar as estratégias de sobrevivência, o jogo se torna extremamente recompensante e viciante, pois cada hexágono a ser explorado pode trazer um grande perigo ou descoberta que faz você ficar naquela apreensão e vontade de experimentar só mais um turno, semelhante ao que só a série Civilization sabe como fazer. Sem falar na sensação muito boa de estar vencendo o jogo simplesmente por estar vivo lutando contra bandidos, mutantes, doenças, fome, frio e sede, esses quatro últimos sendo os principais adversários de NEO Scavenger.

Os gráficos são bem simples, no estilo FTL de simplicidade, o que em momento algum impede você de ficar envolvido com os eventos do jogo. O combate é todo por turnos bem parecido com os Fallouts 1 e 2. Você escolhe qual arma usar e vai clicando em ações baseadas no que você espera do seu adversário. Na tela você vê informações que descrevem o tipo de inimigo, arma utlizada, estado de saúde atual etc. O combate pode ser rude e simples, mas é incrível como você fica tenso aguardando o desfecho dele. E não há sensação mais legal do que ler que aquele golpe com um pé de cabra acertou em cheio a cabeça do bandido e agora ele está jogado no chão inconsciente e aguardando que você dê o golpe final ou apenas pilhe o corpo agonizante e caia fora dali antes que outros bandidos ou animais apareceçam.

Mesmo estando em beta, NEO Scavenger está quase pronto e com muito conteúdo a ser explorado e zero de bugs até onde pude jogar. (quase dez horas de jogo).
É mais um indie que entrega uma experiência única e inovadora e um dos melhores RPGs por turno que já joguei. Baixem a demo, não custa nada.

If you like:
- Obsessive compulsive hoarding of plastic bottles
- Fashioning weapons out of seemingly innocuous detritus
- Spending half your days with diarrhea, having eating the purple berries
- Awkwardly dragging a sled containing boxes of spare T-shirts through a hostile wilderness
- Dying due to acute aspiration of blood in the lungs following being bludgeoned with a monkey wrench

Then stop kidding yourself! Neo Scavenger is waiting to be your next survival strategy game addiction.

After 30 odd hours in steam, not counting the downloadable version, not counting the browser version, here's an edited review:

NEO Scavenger is a turn-based survival post-apocalyptic roguelike with perma-death. I also now sometimes fondly call it a Procedural Death Michigan. It's mean, immersive, annoyingly addictive and seems to strongly dislike players wearing right boots (left boots are fine).

Basically, you scavenge around (and die after the building crumbles on you), fight other people scavenging around (and die valiantly with monkey wrench in hand) or try to talk to them (and die a turn later by drinking a celebratory made-it-through-the-turn sip of poisoned water), try to kill creatures that would like to eat you almost as much as you'd like to eat them (and die hungry), craft items to help you survive (and die warm because your fire alerted every deadly thing around), keep track of your hunger, thirst, diseases and injuries (and die very informed) or try to get to the seemingly last big hub of civilization (and die trying to get there; or trying to get in; or after you get in; I hear you can even die by traffic while crossing an intersection).

In short this is a game where you try to make it through the day while figuring out what has happened to your hero and the world - and die trying. I really don't want to spoil this too much for you, but rest assured, whether you prefer dying by traumatic brain injury, blood loss, cholera, dehydration or an angry mob, there are enough options there to suit everyone's tastes. And if that doesn't sound fun to you, go away, I don't like you.

Seriously, it's a great game with fun and interesting gameplay and what looks like a very promising story that's still being added to. Still Early Access, but very much playable and enjoyable already. It's also being very actively developed by a friendly and approachable dev (who has baked me no cookies prior to rewriting this review, though cookies are very much encouraged and will always skew further reviews favorably).
