Saw this game mentioned in the SoTS-The Pit thread
Never heard of it, I'm a big roguelike fan, so I had to do some research
Now this article sold me. A year old, so the game could be even bigger nowhttp://www.diygamer.com/2012/07/school- ... seriously/
Aspects like this are what make the game sound so appealing to me.
In Neo Scavenger, you’re a (largely) regular human being – frail, fallible and vulnerable to death from a thousand different sources. You need food, water and sleep to function, and the forests – while occasionally bountiful – are often inhabited by horrible mutant monsters.
Not many RPGs can offer the option to try and grab an attackers leg and pull him to the ground with you if you’ve already been knocked flat. Combat won’t be decided by Hit Points, but rather blood-loss, shock and other, more realistic incapacitating factors.
Get slashed with a knife and you’re going to be left bleeding with a potentially infected wound, so you need to properly treat the injury. Sterilize rags to use as bandages, take antibiotics to fight infection, painkillers to stop yourself from falling into shock and all that serious medical fun
I really really hope we see this featured on IGS. Has the game improved/expanded over the last year?
