Welcome to the NEO Scavenger WikiEdit
Making your first journey into the game? We MAY be able to help. What we need is people who can contribute to make this wiki the definitive resource for the game that is NEO Scavenger! Play it, enjoy it, bring your knowledge to the wiki! If you have a specific question please visit the forums for assistance.
This is most definitely a work in progress. Please feel free to add to this wiki and edit any information that is incorrect.
Respect to DongoDM for getting this whole thing rolling!
Editors please note: This is the home page, not the "spam everything here"-page. Make separate pages for things like Tips and Tricks, Getting Started, Items/inventory, etc. Then, if you feel like it's relevant, you can put links to those pages on the homepage (however, don't make a completely new section/heading for just one single link like the "Hints and Tips" section that I just removed from here. Instead try to put it in the Helpful Pages section I made for just that purpose). - Dux Ducis Hodiernus 18:05, May 23, 2012 (UTC)
NEO Scavenger has got a manual! It's basically a compilation of wiki pages about game mechanics, so wiki readers won't find anything new in there, but it's a good source for all new players, since it has all information about gameplay in one place and doesn't contain any spoilers. 13:58, February 25, 2014 (UTC)
Due to some severe bugs v0.981 was rolled back to v0.980 (both demo and beta). There's also a test version v0.984t available, which should fix these bugs. Check the website for details.
The GameEditNEO Scavenger is a hex- and turn-based RPG wasteland survival game. A free demo as well as the current beta version can be found at the developer website, on Desura, or on Steam. However, the special editions of the game are only available at the dev website. Buying the beta also includes access to the full game once it is finished. The learning curve is steep, but enjoyable for many.
The game consists of a hex map and a turn-based movement and combat system. Choose your own adventure style menu where your skills and items come into play resulting in different outcomes. Scavenging for loot while keeping your character fed, hydrated and warm can be quite a task. Recipes for new items can be discovered in game or by using a no-penalty system of combinations. Characters are based on abilities and disabilities selected at the start of the game. These abilities can be used in encounters or even in item crafting.
