Lost Scavenger


How long could you survive in a parallel universe where the Mist dictates its rules? Would you be able to find the way to your homeworld, or will you adapt to live under the Mist domain? Fight for resources, try to survive and discover the secrets of this world. This is your story.

Lost Scavenger is a hardcore game about surviving in an open world that is overrun by the Mist. You play as an ordinary guy that has fallen into an anomaly and found himself in a world that has been haunted by the Mist for the last 30 years. How far could you make it in a dying world in which every step may be your last one? Would you be able to find the way to your homeworld, or will you adapt to live under the Mist domain?
Features:
  • Unique world. The postapocalyptic world shrouded in impenetrable Mist. Small anclaves of survivours are scattered around what has left of the world. Do you have what it takes to find your path through all this?
  • Active pause. It triggers after your every action so you can thoroughly read your surroundings, make assessions and plan your further actions.
  • One life only. Your character lives only once. If they die, they die. Game over. And yet, it is a cruel world you're going into!
  • No grind. No character leveling, no skill trees, no EXP whatsoever. Instead, you have to learn to play better, use your strengths and compensate your weaknesses. Git gud!
  • Randomly generated world. Different biomes, weather conditions, anclaves and quests make every playthrough unique.
  • Immersive simulation. The narration is dynamic and depends on your world generation settings and actions that you perform in that world. Every playthrough is a new story. And it is not necessary to follow the storyline: you can just wander around the world to try yourself!
  • Virtues and flaws. Choose what you're good at and what you're not every time you start the new game. Unlock new traits during your adventure. They will give you the access to new abilities and dialogue options!
  • Rich crafting system that lets you experiment or craft unique items from recipes that may be found throughout the world.
  • Battles with a wide range of tactical techniques.
  • Realistic damage. Creatures have a complex damage system, including locational damage, bleeding, painkillers, infections and aggravation.
  • Realistic metabolism: fatigue, hunger, dehydration, hypothermia, diseases, intoxication.
  • Mutations: character affected by the Mist might get their limbs or organs mutated, which will grand them unpredictable effects.
  • Realistic inventory. A complex item management system with both weight and volume limits forces players to carry only what is most necessary to character's survival.
  • Hexagonal map. Travel through ruins, hills, forests and plains on a hexagonal map. Direct visibility, altitude and daylight affect the viewing distance.
  • Settlements: meet other survivors in their enclaves. They may provide food, rest and medical care. If you have something to give in return.
  • Scouting: use your gear to explore your surroundings.
  • Stealth tactics: search hiding places, use camouflage and ambush your enemy.
  • Hunting: hunt wildfowl for food and fur, or hunt down big ones for rare ingredients.
  • Use your lockpicking skills to open stashes with precious loot.
  • Foraging. Search for edible plants and water sources, and use special skills to determine what is safe to consume.
  • World inhabitants AI. Everything on the map lives its own life. Creatures wander around, gather resources, hunt each other or gather into packs to higher their chances to survive, which means a great danger to the player.
  • Dynamic weather: daytime cycle, temperature, precipitation - and all of that depends on a season. For now, you always start in the middle of the autumn, and if you're strong enough, you will be able to live until winter.

I don't want to tank this games review score before it gets a chance to shine. It's too early in development to do a complete review. But if you came here expecting an experience like Neo Scavenger like I was you might be disappointed. The mechanics are the same but the feel and artistic style are not on the same level. UI is even worse than Neo Scavenger but that's not an issue for me. I support the developer and hope he brings out the full potential of this game, but at the moment there is not much keeping me playing. The character creation needs a lot of work/balancing, it threw me off right away and I was scratching my head. The writing seems solid though, and the dev seems passionate about his game.

Review from Steam

Today i tried LOST SCAVENGER it is a really great idea and seems to have much to offer, although it took me some time to find a way to switch to English... it is an option, and the time lag for eating is frustrating, may need to reboot game to fix for now i think. Given it has some flaws, I remind myself it is a new release and early access. So far they put work in to squish seen bugs. Those who enjoy peeling back a story while fighting an environment that is unforgiving should like it. I am excited to see what the game will become in the future. I think it is a survivor of survival turn based games, (fingers crossed).

Review from Steam

I'm recommending this game based solely on it's potential, and not its current state. In all honesty it's a hot mess. That said, with Blue Bottle in full swing with Ostranauts, we won't see a continuation to NEO Scavenger for many years. Respectfully, Ostranauts is a great concept, but NEO Scavenger deserved an immediate sequel. The ball got dropped, so someone else picked it up, and that's why I'm supporting Lost Scavenger. What made NEO Scavenger such an indie success was its community, and it's going to take a community like that to see this clone to its full potential. So if you're intrigued, but still on the fence, I'm asking you to take the plunge. The developer obviously has love for the original format, while making enough changes to give it its own flavor. $15 bucks is a small gamble to take for something raw, and ambitious.

Review from Steam

Worth a try if you are in dire need of a niche survival genre game and dont mind reporting bugs every couple of minutes. Its very early in its development stage and has many bugs, some of them quite gamebreaking. Despite its flaws I cant give it a thumbs down. There arent many games like this in the survival genre and its extremely similar to very underrated NEO Scavenger. It fixes my urge to scavange for items, craft different things and die to random events.

Review from Steam

Lost Scavenger is still in early access but given that and the learning curve in the game, I believe this one can go places. It has loads of replay value, is well priced and the game does make you think. But remember that with all early access games come issues or bugs and this one has a few including serious memory leaks causing crashes. I would love to see improvement in stability, graphics, map movement as well as in the stats area as you always seem to be in more pain then none. Given time the community will provide feed back and things will change. So if your into Survival, Strategy or even Sandbox style games then this might be something to watch.

Its NeoScavenger in 2022. Very difficult, but looks great and very promising beginning.

Review from Steam

Yeah, it's basically more Neo Scavenger, but is that such a bad thing? VERY unforgiving, but fun. If you're stupid, you'll die. Hell, sometimes you die anyway. Such is life.
