Description

Dark Scavenger is a bizarre point-and-click RPG adventure with a focus on exploration, gaining loot, and meaningful choices. Filling the role of a powerful space traveler, you find yourself stranded on a mysterious planet in the company of three eccentric, yet resourceful aliens. As you desperately seek a way to repair your ship, a massive conflict unfolds around you involving warring factions and a sinister force that threatens to destroy them all. Will you adopt the problems of this world as your own or will you just save yourself?

History

Development of Dark Scavenger began in late 2010. It started off as a simple text adventure based off a pen-and-paper RPG our designer created in high school. Over the course of development however, it evolved into an RPG/Adventure with hand drawn art and deep turn-based combat. In 2012, we released Dark Scavenger on our website, and now two years later we are preparing for the Steam release!
