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.

(11/27/17) 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!!!

I love this game to bits and have had only one issue, which it appears everyone has been having, random crashes. I thought that maybe to counteract this issue (for now) is to add a manual save button in the main menu instead of having to go back to the title screen to save the game. And yes I know there is an autosave but I feel like it doesn't happen enough. Edit: I didn't know that autosaves happen at the end of every turn so thank you for the information and regarding the crashes, I think it might be my phone which is about 3 years old now, other than that the crashes happen usually when I'm in combat or crafting.

Amazing game, own it on Steam and play it religiously. Clocked in 6 hours on my first day of owning it. Only downside is that in order to play it on mobile I have to purchase it again, not to mention at full price. Is there any way to get the full version if I provide proof of Steam purchase?

It's a fantastic for what it is, I can see some things to improve upon but the base game is fine. For a port, this is well done, good job Blue Bottle Games!

Absolutely stunning, visuals were amazing, the controls were a bit strange at first, but I got used to them, and the story is EPIC! Perfect ten!

Amazing game if you are the type that likes survival.

One more turn slowly becomes one more day survived. Then it becomes the difference between drinking water found and boiling water first before drinking water found. Every time you die there's something else you probably could have done but you don't know until after that death. You dying you survive you die again you keep learning you keep playing around with different builds of skills. Personally I feel you can't go wrong with at least having lockpick and botany as main skills. Anything else do what you like. There's probably no 'wrong' strategy, just find what works for you.

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.
