How long can you survive the post-apocalyptic wastelands of NEO Scavenger? In the near-future, supernatural activity and human warfare have fragmented mankind into pockets of civilization struggling to survive in wild and dangerous lands. You awaken alone in an abandoned facility with no food nor water, and only a hospital gown and some mysterious items as clues to your identity. 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!

News is posted! It turns out that I must've missed something in the submission last Thursday. I suspect I forgot the preview screenshot in the form, and I mistook the error for an "awaiting authorization" message.

Thanks S.D.! In theory, the news I posted about this last Thursday should be appearing any day now :)

So v0.982b is up here, but 0.984b is current, with 0.983 in between (I think that's right).

When will the version here be updated? I did see the 'Connect' thing, but was really hoping updated versions would just appear here, as they are made available elsewhere.

Hey Alavanche,

Just a heads-up, I updated the client/stand-alone builds on Desura to 0.984 on Tuesday, and I'm just waiting for Desura to approve the builds to go live. If you haven't been able to try them yet, hopefully this will get them to you soon!

Okay, okay, I know I didn't reply, but geesh with the spam (spell check thinks that should be capitalised).


I am of course joking :o)

In fact I really do appreciate your continued posting in Desura (to me and others) and even when I didn't reply to your original reply (which I also appreciated). I tend to post around the web in bursts. Not very timely on my part.

On topic: I think I understand you not wanting to put up an unstable build on Desura. It seems that Desura only offers one version? I.e. there's no archive or having one version labelled 'Stable' and one labelled 'Unstable Test Version: Download at your own risk'. I've only ever seen one link and if people download the latest version and it has issues then, even though it's a Beta, some will complain etc.

I guess I'm thinking aloud (i.e. rambling) as I'd much prefer to have access to the Testing Version, since I follow goings on on bluebottlegames.com, but people not following Blue Bottle and what seems like a limited Desura, means that yeah, I get not wanting to upload an unstable version. Which is a shame.

Rambling aside, you show no sign of stopping, but I just wanted to add that I really like your daily updates on your website. Been reading them for a few months now, so even though I haven't signed up an account to post there (I have WAY too many accounts already and my posting timeliness is dreadful), I hope you keep doing them, as I've really enjoyed reading them.

Anyway, thanks for your responses. Looking forward to 0.984. And 0.985 :o)

Hey Alavanche,

I'm holding off on an update here until the build is more stable. 0.984 still has a few issues that I've fixed in my local build, and I'm hoping the next one will be good to go. Once I have a stable build uploaded, I'll make it the new default everywhere, including here.

Ah, ok. I had a feeling it might be something like that.

To be fair, if one had never seen NEO Scavenger before, that city vid can be a bit confusing. It definitely needs context.

I didn't realize I could switch the order of the vids manually, though, so thanks for bringing that to my attention!
