Scavenger SV-4 is a highly replayable atmospheric first-person science fiction game. Part simulator, part roguelike, it has elements of action, combat, resource management, and a dash of horror. It is not quite like any game you have played before.

Antivirus False Positives update

At this point in time the UPX compressed version of the executable shows a false positive in fewer AV programs than the uncompressed versions I sent out in the v1.09 patch, so I've re-enabled compression in a v1.095 patch.

This (as of now, at least) should stop the built in windows 10 bitdefender AV from triggering - though there are false positives at this time from several other popular products.

My next steps will be submitting reports to all the AV software providers, since changing the game to match the moving target they seem to require appears not to work well.

Patch: V1.09

An increasing number of users have been getting false positives on this game from their antivirus software.

To reduce this problem, I've just pushed a patch that strips UPX compression from the executables. This should make no difference at all to gameplay, but should cause fewer false positives and quarantines, which tend to appear as the game not installing, not starting, or crashing while trying to build gameworlds.

I apologize for the inconvenience.

About This Game

Scavenger SV-4 is a highly replayable atmospheric first-person science fiction game.

You are alone on your ship, in orbit above an undiscovered alien planet.

The windswept surface below is a radioactive wasteland. In orbit, the radiation levels are dangerous. Landing there would kill you in seconds, even through your spacesuit.

You have a remote control rover drone. The signal is weak and the interference is strong - the video feed is grainy with static. Use it to explore the surface of the planet, the derelict structures there, and the remains of alien machinery long dead... or perhaps just dormant.

Pilot your rover, bring back samples, and research them in the science lab. Use the objects you've found to enhance your rover. Try to figure out what happened here. Each time you start a new game, you are someone else, with a different story and unknown mysteries waiting on a new planet. With luck, you might leave with a cargo hold full of priceless alien artifacts and be wealthy for life.

Be careful. Bad things sometimes happen to lone explorers far from home.

Scavenger SV-4 is genre defiant - part simulator, part roguelike, with elements of action, combat, resource management, and a dash of horror. It is not quite like any game you have played before.
