Description & Details

Turn-based, single-player survival RPG set in post-apocalyptic Michigan.

Play the acclaimed PC survival RPG on your tablet and smartphone! (Free unlimited time demo with IAP to unlock full version.)

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!


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.

No Grinding - There are 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!

Abilities and Flaws - Choose abilities 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.

Foraging - Search for edible plants and water, and use special skills to identify what's safe to eat.

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.


Permadeath Save System - If you die, that's it. NEO Scavenger is balanced around a single difficulty level: permadeath. Save games will be deleted if you die. So choose every action carefully!

Haunting Soundtrack - Music composed by Josh Culler, specifically for NEO Scavenger, plays periodically, lending an atmosphere of loneliness and desperation.

Hacking - Use hacking skills to unlock scavenged laptops, cellphones, smartphones, and tablets. Mine them for paydata, or snoop through personal files.

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.

More items, crafting, creatures, encounters, and a larger map.

Something 5
9000/10. I love this game more than drugs, and nihilism, and sarcasm, combined. Well, more than sarcasm, maybe. Anyway, it's my new favorite mobile game. Moving items, managing inventory, generally being aware of the environment, crafting, and mostly everything else could be improved. As it is now, it's still better than 99% of everything on the play store. Make it more microtransactiony if that's what is needed to streamline the interface and processes by which the players interact with the game. I'll be first in line to throw money at you!

My only issue is on the main menu the game will suddenly dissapear and I will be back at my home screen, I can scroll through my home screens but I still here the music until I close the app, and when I open it back up it kicks me out and then I have to close it and wait for the music to stop. The only way I have found to get around this is to quickly hit new game cause it seems to only effect the main menu. But thank you for making this game for mobile!

Truly amazing. This is like no other game on the Play Store. It's meant for PC, but the Devs really made it possible to play it on mobile!!! I love the choice system, the replayability, the permanent death, everything in this gem is just outstanding for a realistic survival game! A MUST FOR A S.T.A.L.K.E.R. FAN!!! Hints for newbs: pick Athletic, go to ATN Enclave, use Athletic 4 times in beginning encounter, get the LEGENDARY ELUSIVE SKILL!!!

I have already owned this game on pc for several months now and when I learned there was a mobile version I was absolutely ECSTATIC!!! I have already put in 110 hours in this game and have (almost) beat it a few times but be warned this game is extremely hardcore, don't come crying to me when you die from blood poisoning for the 13th time in a row and have to restart from the beginning. (Yes there is permadeath) Love this game to death 10/10 better than drugs.

Great survival game! I'm the type of guy that despised text based games and this game pried my eyes wide open. I've never played a survival game as deep, complex, and realistic as NEO Scavenger; the scavenging, inventory management, combat, and health system are very detailed and realistic, the game has its own massive world of people, places, and oddities. Btw, if you love the early Fallout games, you'll ADORE this game.

Prone to the occasional crash with the free version but the game is so good I immediately forgive every time. If you like turn based, RPG and especially if you like both, you cannot go wrong with Neo Scavenger. I have it on Steam and was super pumped to discover I could bring it anywhere on my phone. Great job on this.

This is an awesome game and I haven't played one like this since like 1992. Probably best played on a tablet or something with a wider screen. There is a zoom function that helps. Pressing on the smaller items can be a hassle at times. Overall, a great buy and definitely worth checking out. I wish this was game was on consoles.

Think it might just be a issue with my phone, but I only seem to be able to see a black screen when I open it. I seem to be able to tap things still, but the only thing I could get to show up is the purchase link via tapping my screen like a maniac. Edit to reply: tried reinstalling twice, opening one time with Wi-Fi and the other without, same problems.

Most brutal survival game I've ever played... And that's a good thing! The rng really determines whether or not you live the next day, regardless of how well equipped you are or how good your odds are at certain encounters. Menu controls are clunky on smaller screens, even when zoomed, but it's tolerable. Lots of things to interact and craft with a recipe list to aid you. The bit graphics are a good touch and pleasing to look at. Overall I enjoyed the game and am planning on purchasing the full version.
I love this game immensely. You really get sucked in. Surviving feels real. My only trouble is this awkward port to a mobile format that doesn't really work too well. I'm sure, or at least I hope, the UI will be figured out in time.

Great game, but maybe you could kinda implement a option for cheats to people who have bought the game? Would be a great way to get steam off after hours of progress get lost to a creature of the night that rips my throat out!
