Cosa dicono gli sviluppatori:

“Hey folks! Please try the free demo, to see if NEO Scavenger meets your expectations!

NEO Scavenger is in development. As such, there may be game balance issues, bugs, and missing content. However, NEO Scavenger should provide a playable and fun experience. And playing the demo is the best way to determine if NEO Scavenger is a game for you.

What to Expect from Me

Dedicated Development - NEO Scavenger development is my livelihood, and my full-time job. I take weekends and holidays off.
Regular Developer Updates - I update my dev log each weekday with what work I did.
Frequent Game Updates - NEO Scavenger is updated frequently with new content, fixes, and features.
Receptive to Feedback - I take player feedback very seriously, fixing reported bugs when I can, and adding suggested ideas when they seem like a good fit. E.g. Blue Bottle Games forums, Desura, Something Awful, RPGCodex, NEOGaf.”

New Test Build 0.9942b: More Fixes and Balance Tweaks

I've just finished uploading new test beta 0.9942b, which adjusts balance and fixes issues still found in v0.9941b.

The build is available to anyone who owns the beta at http://bluebottlegames.com/main/, or on Desura and Steam. Desura (and therefore, Groupees) users can use Desura Connect to gain access here, or even get their Steam keys and try it on Steam.

To access the test build on the official site, simply visit the beta page, and click any of the download links below the usual Windows, Mac, and Linux buttons.

Steam users can access the test build by opting into the beta for it.

Updates Included in the Test Beta

Test beta 0.9942b includes the following changes:

  • Added ability to use mechanic skill in scavenging buildings to reduce accident chances.
  • Added cooldown period to melonhead reinforcement ability, to prevent over-use.
  • Added reinforcement cooldown as a default condition on newly-spawned melonheads, to prevent cascading numbers.
  • Added exit function to GPS.
  • Added single dose Blue Rot cures to Saginaw basement loot.
  • Changed scavenge loot for households to be more appropriate (e.g. no night vision goggles).
  • Changed tooltip pop-up width to be wider, so newspaper text isn't too long to fit on screen.
  • Changed hiding button tooltip to mention start/stop toggle.
  • Changed run button to disappear when run moves remaining <= 0.
  • Fixed a bug in the ParseConditions code that would allow NaN values in aModifiers (causing errors like immunity to wounds).
  • Fixed a bug in Grayling that would cause dead-end when returning to outside fence area.
  • Fixed a bug that caused weather icon to appear on wrong screens during battle.
  • Fixed a bug that caused Clearbone basement to duplicate upon revisit.
  • Fixed a bug in Hatter deal that didn't take Blue Rot sample nor pay player.
  • Fixed a bug that caused markets to restock multiple times during first hour of each morning.
  • Fixed typos in Isotope Mine, Haggerty Health, and other encounters.
  • Fixed bug that prevented reverse-crafting compound bow w/strap.
  • Fixed weight of copper beads on a string.
  • Fixed typo in datafile.
  • Fixed bug in DMC interrogation that caused premature ending if player was flagged by DMC guard.

One of the bigger changes here is the addition of the mechanic skill to scavenging, to help reduce accidents in buildings. Now that scavenging tends to have more accident risk per item of loot, it made sense to add some way to mitigate that risk. Plus, it makes mechanic more valuable!

I also toned-down the melonhead reinforcements a bit. Now, they should use it more sparingly, and newly-added melonheads cannot use reinforcement calls right away.

There were also quite a few fixes to encounters for things like dead-ends and typos, as well as some UI tweaks.

The likelihood that this version of NEO Scavenger will work with previous saves is: likely.
As usual, the older the save game version, the less likely it is to work.

As always, let me know what you think of the changes, and if you notice any issues with the new build!

New Test Build 0.9941b: More Sound Effects, Fixes, and Balance Tweaks

I've just finished uploading new test beta 0.9941b, which includes new sounds, and several fixes and balance tweaks for v0.9940b.

The build is available to anyone who owns the beta at http://bluebottlegames.com/main/, or on Desura and Steam. Desura (and therefore, Groupees) users can use Desura Connect to gain access here, or even get their Steam keys and try it on Steam.

To access the test build on the official site, simply visit the beta page, and click any of the download links below the usual Windows, Mac, and Linux buttons.

Steam users can access the test build by opting into the beta for it.

Updates Included in the Test Beta

Test beta 0.9941b includes the following changes:

  • Added batch of new audio for Paul: headwear, fire, scopes/binocs, metal drum/canister, etc.
  • Changed scavenge loot chances to be lower in urban buildings that are not damaged, to compensate for recent increase in available buildings.
  • Changed number of urban scavenge sites to be slightly less, since many hexes had 5-7 sites initially.
  • Changed isotope mine intro to be less aware of the past.
  • Fixed a bug that caused search move to be unavailable in battle.
  • Fixed a bug that caused Martha's Army conversations to repeat endlessly.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented death ending from killing player.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented black detector object from being usable where it should be.
  • Fixed a bug that caused hardware to sometimes randomly change contents between saves.
  • Fixed gray shirt and hospital gown sprites to layer more cleanly.
  • Fixed a null-pointer bug when retrieving a random newspaper item.
  • Fixed a UI bug in the run moves remaining text.
  • Fixed a typo in Stoat offer.
  • Fixed a bug in the random container loot table that caused extra potato chip bags.

Most of these changes were addressing issues players found in v0.9940b, including a few game-breaking ones. I also made some adjustments to the scavenging system balance, to prevent oversaturation of loot in the early game.

Additinally, a new batch of Paul's sound effects were added. So things like campfires and gas masks now have sounds!

As always, let me know what you think of the changes, and if you notice any issues with the new build!

Riguardo questo gioco

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!

Development Snapshot Infographic

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.

Recensione della versione ad accesso anticipato
I had a Strong Melee Hacker, with lockpicking, a crowbar strap, and a box cart. None could stand in my way, not even the Detroit Mercs could withstand my maniacal crowbar swinging techniques. I was immortal. I confidently strode through the Michigan wastes knowing that I could never die. I came across some water in an urban location. I was a bit parched and decided to sate my thirst on the water. I didn't need to boil it, I was immortal! I drank the water, and a few hours later my charcter began to develop severe diarrhea as my skin turned a horrific shade of blue. I checked my supplies, I had no antibiotics, I needed to get to the health clinic. I desperately made my way to Detroit. 3 hexes away from gate 11 my character died from Cholera. I lost everything and died because I was too lazy to boil my water. 10/10 would play again.

I purchased this game after playing the free demo and reading off a note on Darkwood's page from a developer stating its awesomeness. I was not let down. On the surface it looks a little confusing, but even in alpha state there's a lot of depth, a huge crafting list, very few bugs and a fun, immersive atmosphere. Your choices feel extremely important all the way through, and the realism of some of the crafting and health mechanics is wonderful.

If you like survival games, are tired of zombies and enjoy being more tactical, this turn-based apocalyptic survival sim will become one of your favorites.

This game is great...brutal and hard, but great. Imagine a turn based 'The Road' simulator and that's what they've made. Your worst enemies aren't other humans...it's cholera, cold, hunger, and infection. Infection makes choosing to fight a whole different ballgame, even the smallest injury can kill you in the long run without clean bandaging. Good stuff, worth the money!

How I LOVE this game!
It has the extensiveness of a great exploration and scavenging game, but it actually has a -goal-, including stories, quests and npc's but without revealing everything in the first 5 minutes of playing. In fact, after almost 18 hours of playing I get the feeling I'm only scratching the surface of finding out what's really going on - who I am and what I am supposed to be doing. The guidance you get is intuitive but directions are given sparingly. There are loads of stats kept, you get an idea of that when you die - everything you achieved is being summed up, giving you hints of events that have been set in motion.
Gonna start another round right NOW

Avete voluto l’Apocalisse? Ora arrangiatevi. Questo sembra volerci dire NEO Scavenger sin dal momento in cui creeremo il nostro primo personaggio e ci avventureremo nelle lande desolate del Michigan alla ricerca di Detroit, ultimo baluardo del genere umano, ma nel contempo anche di noi stessi, risvegliatici in una delle più classiche strutture criogeniche senza nessuna coscienza di sé. E la frase, sibillina, ci ritorna in mente quando circa dieci turni dopo saremmo morti di freddo tra le rovine di un centro urbano non meglio identificato. L’estrema simulazione della fine del mondo a firma Blue Bottle Games rappresenta infatti una vera sorpresa nel panorama sempre più affollato dei roguelike.
