Games That Are Like Neo Scavenger
This thread is for people to post information about other games that are similar to Neo Scavenger, either for inspiration or just so you can try a survival game that doesn't involve dogmen. Elements we are looking for are survival, realistic needs, intricate crafting systems, etc.
A few games that come to mind are:
Zafehouse Diaries: A zombie survival game that focuses heavily on the relations and stress involved with putting 6 different people with their own skills and prejudices in a group and escaping a zombie infested city. The characters are randomly generated with professions that give them skills and the game measures the relationship between each person. If morale is down and tempers are high don't expect them to watch eachothers' asses for very long. Dwindling supplies and the ever present zombie horde requires organized scavenging runs and caution. Gunfire will attract zombies from all across town, but this can be used to drive them away from the rest of the group. Random events and encounters forces the player to make tough decisions and the goal is to either find parts for a car or find clues about when and where the rescue chopper will land. It's made by an indie company and they are still adding more to it.
Liberal Crime Squad: Originally made by the guys that made Dwarf Fortress, they made it open source and abandoned it, a forum of guys picked it up and made it into an awesome and hilarious game. Liberal crime squad puts you in charge of one man, living in a radically conservative nation. (regardless of your political beliefs this is a spoof and meant to be funny, which it very much is) Based on your answers to 6 or so questions you character starts with a variety of skills and the ability to recruit new members in three ways. You can convince them by talking to them about the issues, you can kidnap them and brainwash them through excruciating and hilarious torture techniques, or you can date them (gender doesn't matter, because you are just that sexy) and make them your love slave. Whoever you recruit will have their own skills and will be able to conduct raids on major strongholds of conservativism, like banks, pharmaceutical labs, police stations, etc. The combat is complex and extremely brutal, and the sheer amount of different tasks you can do is mind numbing. You could play the entire game without committing a single crime, just by writing to newspapers and voicing your opinion, or you can go on a crime spree that would make Ghenghis Khan think your a pretty bloodthirsty dude. Hilarious game, one of my favorites.
Haven and hearth: Basically the game Don't Starve but in MMO form. Pretty fun back in the day, I'm not sure its still got as big of a community now. http://www.bay12forums.com/smf/index.php?topic=125450.0
