Have You Played… Dark Scavenger

By Adam Smith on October 16th, 2014.

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.

Dark Scavenger is an odd game and it necessitated a very odd Wot I Think. I’ve encountered all sorts of strange creations during the few years I’ve been writing for RPS and many slip out of my mind quicker than a greased pig at a country fair. This bizarre ‘turn-based point and click adventure’ has stayed with me though. I said at the time that it would have been a cult classic had it been released on the Amiga back in the day and as time goes by, I’m convinced that it deserves cult classic status right now. Deliriously imaginative, it’s quite unlike anything else I’ve played before or since.

Spare A Thought For The IndieFort Bundle

By Adam Smith on September 10th, 2012.

The new IndieFort bundle over at Gamersgate is like a pick and mix stand, allowing purchasers to select three, six or nine games from a selection of 24. Three for £2.49, six for £4.49 or nine for £6.49. There are a few obvious savings, with Telepath RPG: Servants of God and Air Buccaneers valued at £17.95 and £24.95 respectively. There are deals to be had then and some decent games in the selection, including the two aforementioned, Dark Scavenger, Cardinal Quest, and Tiny and Big. The deal runs for three weeks and starting from the 21st it’ll be possible to vote for your favourite three games. The winners will be sold in a $3 pack. There’s a trailer below that shows all the games in action

Twice The Bundle, Twice The, Uh, Fundle

By Alec Meer on June 19th, 2012.

Don’t forget in these crowdsourced times that indie bundles remain very much a going concern. If anything, the huge success of the latest Humble Bundle (alright it might be only semi-indie, whatever, don’t be boring) means focus might once again turn to pay-what-you-want, publisher-free collections. Two more have turned up in recent days. IndieGala’s latest contains both PC and Android versions of some right little RPG and strategy crackers, while Indiefort’s second volley has a more fixed price for a selection of higher-tech PC games. Details below you may find, yes.*

Wot I Think: Dark Scavenger

By Adam Smith on May 3rd, 2012.

John pointed me in the direction of Dark Scavenger and at that point all I knew is that he’d written this about it in the past: “They’re calling it a turn-based combat point-and-click adventure.” He’d also said ‘Wuh?’, ‘Huh?’ and even ‘Buh?’. Swelling with hubris I installed the game believing I could be the man to answer those questions, intricate as they are. That was Tuesday. Today I bring definitive and detailed responses along with an oddly shaped slice of wot I think.

What On Earth Is Dark Scavenger?

By John Walker on May 26th, 2011.

I bet he's an excellent kisser.

One of my favourite jokes is making up genres. Generally I pick two or three that seem unlikely to work together, inevitably beginning with “turn-based”, because it’s the unlikeliest approach to many other types. Which makes the description of Dark Scavenger, announced today by Psydra Games, beyond intriguing. They’re calling it a turn-based combat point-and-click adventure. Wuh?
