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. Note that only full version can save progress.)

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.


Save System - Save progress between sessions. However, 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.

(9/16/17) Truly amazing. This is like no other game on the Play Store. It's meant for PC, but the dev really made an amazing port for mobile devices!!! And now there's a new amazing update!!! Shows how much dedication is put into this game by an amazing dev!!! I love the choice system, the huge amount of dialogue, the replay-ability, the permanent death, everything in this gem is just outstanding for a realistic survival game! The full version is worth every dollar ($10). Just trust me on this because you'll be spending so much time being immersed by this game. A MUST FOR A S.T.A.L.K.E.R. FAN!!!

This game is brutally honest about punishing bad decisions. Cut throat. Gritty. Graphic. The no hand holding gameplay is described via text perfectly. It is worth the $10 for sure, infact I purchased this on steam and gladly paid again to have it on my phone.

I have loved this game for years and I am so thrilled to see it out on mobile and doing so well. It is such a unique game and Dan has done such a fantastic job with all of it. I love how tense and exciting moments can be and before you know it you lose everything but I've come to learn that starting over is part of the fun as well. For those that dont have the full version , the soundtrack is absolutely amazing, it is so fitting and creates such an amazing atmosphere to go with the game. The soundtrack itself is worth the full version! Neo scavenger will always have a special place in my heart.

I love this game, and I've only played a few games most of which ended with acute bleeding of the lungs. However I had one run where I came across my first human enemy, Bad Mutha, who after some back and forth left when I offered a ceasefire, after nightfall I came across him again looting some painkillers. I got the upperhand and he ran away, I chased after him and he turned around and kicked me into next week. I started a new character and found him again. What ensued was the greatest come back story I have ever witnessed. Edit: Unfortunately after I tabbed out of the game to write this review I came back to find all my progress was lost and unrecoverable. Oof. Reply: I think the problem is I only have the trial version, I don't think the trial version has saves at all. Which is fine I'll get the full version eventually.

At first glance I assumed this was another half finish game where you have to pay for good equipment and benefits. After playing the game. It's cut throat honest with no limitations and endless style of game play. And I'm in love. This game is what I been searching for! My only problem is the saves and random crashes but I'm okay with that. This game is too good to hate.
The game is too good.and it starts to change how u play turn based games forever. Attempt 1:Don't kill me. Attempt 10: Where are you wolfman? I don't wanna eat you. 10/5 burritos would play again -Biggest fan ever

Hey I love this game and I hade a problem with the control's but I'm all good now and I have a new idea for the game... A Dog... now here me out... 1st a wild animal attacks a wolf or some kind of dog and the wolf/dog will be on the ground bleeding/hurt you can Bandage it up... And give it some meat and there will be A 50/50 chance of that dog trusting you... or you kill it for me or put it out of its misery.... there is a idea for the game. I hope you guys like it and Thank you for this game!!!!

I bought this game of steam when it was in development, and I can't say I regret anything. This is truly a hidden gaming gem that you've stumbled upon. If you are the kind of person who loves immersive games with survival elements (basically, KOTOR meets DayZ) then this adventure will rock your socks off.

Something's off... Within the couple turns I had a rifle, a nanobot kit with 2 charges, a wrench, a crowbar, all the clothes I could ever need, and came across 5 shopping carts, 4 of which came in doubles. The game crashed upon exit and my save was lost. Most interesting 5 minutes of NEO Scavenger Ive ever played.

The game keeps crashing but the rest is all great. I just got my best round at the game but then it stopped working and I lost everything, also could you add a continue button? I will reinstall the game if there's a continue so that if the game crashes again I won't lose anything.
