|Blackman’N Robin It’s very easy to judge a book (or game) by its cover. I nearly ignored a fun RPG for PC because, quite frankly, I didn’t particularly care for its appearance- it looked cheap, and I assumed it wouldn’t at all be a good game. I’m grateful that I was wrong and decided to play the game anyway, because the game’s developers have done a splendid job with the game from a creative standpoint, rather than from a technical one.Read Full Review||80/100|
|Strategy Informer Dark Scavenger takes an iteration of the RPG genre that is generally thought of as obsolete and breathes fresh life into it. While there’s room for improvement, it does what it does very well, and is packed to the brim with colourful characters and desperate situations.Read Full Review||80/100|
|Midlife Gamer I approached Dark Scavenger with apprehension. I’d not heard much of the game and it didn’t really look like much to shout about. However, after spending more hours than I’d like to admit with it, I came out pleasantly surprised by what I’d just played. Read Full Review||60/100|

|Digitally Downloaded Well, it’s not every day you see an RPG mix it with a point-and-click adventure game. That’s what’s happened here, but as odd as the mix is, this indie title gets it right… most of the time.Read Full Review||60/100|
|IGM This is the narrative of Dark Scavenger as best I understand it: You play a wayward space traveler who’s been rescued by a gang of intergalactic scavengers. Said gang consists of three members: a robed skeleton weaponsmith, someone kind of H.R. Giger-esque space horror, and what appears The Joker’s love child if he ever decided to knock up a goblin. This motley crew then deploys you to a nearby medieval planet in search of…uh…space fuel, or something. Long and short of it: this game starts off frickin’ nuts, and only gets more fruity the further you descend into its deranged world of complete lunacy.Read Full Review||56/100|
