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.

Great game but a few problems

It’s great so far yet as the title suggests their are a few problems. First is the UI, it’s hard to select items and choose where you want to put them specifically. Another problem is trying to select a item just to see what it is. More often then not I eat pills when I’m trying to read what pill it is. I understand it’s their first mobile game (to my knowledge) and that their are going to be problems in porting the game but when inventory is such a big factor it sorta ruins the experience. You can play around and get use to it and they even added a zoom in feature but I just find it difficult. Still, keep up the good work!
Edit: I forgot to add that theirs a glitch that keeps stacking the ‘camp benefits’ over and over and it doesn’t clear. This just makes the messages go off screen and is more of a annoyance then anything. This doesn’t happen much but just saying.
Edit2: Using the hacking skill I can’t scroll through stacked txt files and such so I need to remove and review them one at a time. Just a annoyance.
(Got the full game and I can say that it’s worth it.)

Crashes scarier than Dogmen

First, this game is amazing. Well worth the price - innovative combat, fascinating story lines, great random loot. I love it. A must-buy, if you're into survival and turn-based games.

That said, until it stabilizes I'm giving it up. Having played probably 40+ hours, I've become more afraid of losing my save file to a crash than I have the enemies or elements in game. Playing on my late-gen retina iPad, I've lost at least 4 save files to crashes, all with hours of playtime on them. I get not wanting people to save scum, but I wish there was a way to backup the file. Watching my carefully protected, organized, scavenged loot vanish in a crash again is just too much.

Looking forward to updates, or to whatever Blue Bottle does next!

NEO scavenger

First let me explain that this game, blew me away the first 600 times I played it on PC. I love how unforgiving it is, I love the sound track and especially enjoyed how mentally challenging it is. Which is why it breaks my heart to write this. The game itself feels undercooked, there’s a million stories that can flushed out on NEO Scavenger and someone could spend lifetimes in it. Which is why on PC the mods are a great fill for that gap and totally pull the thorn out of your brain and truly immerse yourself to the point you actually care that Philip K. gets his memory back, or enjoys a Cadillac burger at the red gnome vs foraging for mushrooms and berries. However I have to give this 2 stars for the inability to have a modding community on iOS, the actual game is very short and yes you can have some adventures but there are only a few areas to explore, and a few that can be ignored altogether and poof your done. If there is a way to mod this on iOS please let me know and I’ll eat my hat while I gladly give this 5 stars and beg the developer to work on N.E.O. Scavenger Part 2.
