What are the differences between the demo and full version?

The demo version is an unlimited time, limited area sample of NEO Scavenger's gameplay. It includes the opening encounter, and a subset of items, creatures, and crafting recipes from the full version.

The full version has the following additions:

  • Save games - You can save and quit at any time, to resume later.
  • Full Map - No limits on map exploration.
  • More Items - More item types and loot variety.
  • More Crafting - Wider range of recipes for crafting.
  • Detroit - Access to a major city, with services and encounters.
  • Markets - Places to buy and sell supplies.
  • More Encounters - More events like the cryo facility opening encounter (currently about ~12 as big or bigger than cryo, and ~100 mini encounters)
  • Hacking - Hardware and software loot can be mined for data. Some valuable, others humorous, some historical.
  • Full Soundtrack - The game has a dozen beautiful tracks that play intermittently, composed by Josh Culler. Customers can also download the soundtrack as high-quality mp3s.

Going forward, my plan is to focus on fixing bugs and improving modding support in the full version, while the demo remains feature/content frozen. The demo will continue to get bug fixes, UI enhancements, and balancing, however.
