How often does the game update on Desura?

Hey, I bought this game on the Be Mine 5 bundle on Groupies, but I was wondering how often this game updates there. I understand that it'll take a bit longer to update the game with their builds on all of the platforms so I just wanted to know when it'll be up.

P.S. Are you still working on a way to play with a Desura key on this website?

Hey Melvarius,

The Desura versions get updated at the same time (or, at least within the same few hours), so you should see the same frequency at both sites. There's usually a day or two delay with Desura for their build verification step.

I noticed that Desura actually had all of the platform builds verified this morning, though, so they were pretty fast this time.

And yes, I'm still working on the cross-play from Desura to here. One of the guys at Desura just got back to me with some more info, so I can resume work on that soon.

I am also having the same problem, Melvarius, what did you do to get the new update? (if you have it yet)

Hey Alman556,

The latest version is 0.954b, so if you have that, you should be all set. If you have an older version, though, you can get the latest via this site or Desura, depending where you bought it.

The Be Mine 5 bundle should have provided you with a Desura key for NEO Scavenger, which when redeemed, unlocks downloading of NEO Scavenger's latest versions from their site. You can either install NEO Scavenger via their client (works like Steam), or download NEO Scavenger directly using their "stand alone" links.

The client version should update automatically, like Steam. The stand alone links must be downloaded manually each new update.

Hope this helps!

When Neo Scavenger is on Steam will those who bought the game get a Steam activation code?

Hey orbitneo,

That's the plan. Once the game is available on Steam, I want to make it possible for existing customers to get a Steam copy, similar to how players can cross play both here and on Desura. Hope this helps!

Ok, I have the key, so how do I download the game off of Desura?

In Desura, there should be a link at the bottom of the website for "Activate Key." You'll probably need an account setup first, though, so the key gets saved to that account.

Once on that page, you should be able to enter the key (probably copy+paste is best), and activate it to have it credited to your account.

Give it a shot, and let me know how it goes!
