NEO Scavenger
Game Giveaway: 6 Copies of NEO Scavenger!
October 2, 2013 - Daniel@BlueBottleGames

Hey Folks!

Been waiting for access to the NEO Scavenger beta[bluebottlegames.com], but a little short on cash? Today may be your day!

This Saturday evening (October 5th, 2013), I'll be giving away 6 copies of the NEO Scavenger beta. Anyone can enter, though 4 copies will be reserved for players who don't already have beta access. 2 additional copies will be given to existing customers, to be given away to the person of their choice.

Recently, an anonymous fan generously offered to buy a gift copy to be given away. Since I thought that was such a cool gesture, I decided to throw in 5 extra copies and make a thing of it. Hence, this giveaway!

Here's how it works:

  • Play the free NEO Scavenger demo[bluebottlegames.com], dodge some crazed bandits, scavenge some useful junk, die of cholera/hypothermia/pulmonary embolism a few times, and get a general sense for the world and story.
  • Decide what question you are most curious about in the world. Is there something about a character you want to know? Something about the world itself? Basically, if you were to finish the full game, what question would you most want answered?
  • Create or log into an account on http://bluebottlegames.com/main/user. Creating an account is free. Winning accounts will be granted access to both Flash and downloadable versions of NEO Scavenger on http://bluebottlegames.com. Beta access also includes a Desura key, Steam key (when available), and access to the final game (when it's finished).
  • Comment on this news post[bluebottlegames.com] with your top choice from step 2 above. You can include more than one question in your response, but indicate which is your top question. Only comments on this page[bluebottlegames.com] will be counted.
  • Only one post per person will be counted. Additional posts will not be counted in the random draw.
  • 4 copies will be reserved for new players who do not yet have beta access.
  • 2 copies will be reserved for existing players, who can then email/PM me with the person to whom they want to give the beta. (Existing customers have seen more game lore, and I'm definitely interested in their opinion, too!)
  • Respect other users. No name-calling, trolling, racism, sexism, yadda yadda. If you're a jerk, you're out. No warnings.

So please give the game a shot, see what you think, and toss your question into the ring! Your participation will help me improve the story as I work on it, and please spread the word if you have friends who'd be interested!

Well... 'bout recipes I meant some thing like in terraria =) The idea is realy good, no, it's much more than good =D was looking for game like that for a long time, but it's allways something to add, update or upgrade, you know? ^w^

Hey Blackcheshir!

NEO Scavenger is currently $10 at http://bluebottlegames.com and Desura [www.desura.com], and will likely have a similar price if it is accepted for Early Access on Steam.

Unfortunately, there isn't any name/gender customization, as you've noticed. I like the idea, but I won't have time to make the game support variations like that.

For tips and recipes, be sure to check out the player-maintained wiki [neoscavenger.wikia.com]!

The bad thing is - no way to take a custom name. Too hard at start and no crafting list, so it's really hard to find out a RCP.

So... How much will it be? Or it'll be free to play? I tried the DEMO and... I'm ready to BUY! =D

There's a type in both this post and at the blog. After the date, it says 5 copies. But you promised 6.
