Dark Scavenger Theme (Complete) - Indie DB

"Rarely do game soundtracks evoke such emotion or feelings. Usually the audio for games will suit the subject matter, and that’s as far as it goes. But Dark Scavenger does well to evoke the sense of intrusion, of the outsider being where they shouldn’t be. From space, to the otherworldy planet, to creatures viewing YOU as the alien, to discovering the secrets of the planet Didella, the music carries with it that Sci-Fi feel; spooky, yet adventurous. Does it make sense to say that the music carries with it the sense of philosophical investigation that the story slowly exposes you to?" - Brutal Gamer

"Musically, this game is excellent- it has a rather upbeat, techno soundtrack, along with some of the coolest boss music of all time. While I don’t think I’ll find myself whistling the themes any time soon, I would recognize most of them instantly- and probably be suddenly ready for battle." - Blackman'N Robin

"One thing I absolutely loved about the game though is the music that plays during battles. I’m a bit of an RPG nut and I know a good RPG battle theme when I hear one and Dark Scavenger is no exception. I sometimes left the game running in the background whilst doing other things (such as writing this review) and it kept me incredibly entertained throughout." - Midlife Gamer

"Oh, and the battle music is pretty kickass." - Jim Sterling, Destructoid

So, if I have my Internet Explorer settings to delete all cookies on exit, then I will lose my Dark Scavenger game save each time I exit IE?

Sorry for the late reply. I just got back from vacation. Internet explorer will most likely erase your saved games unless there is an option to exclude Adobe Flash files. If it doesn't have that option, you could try Ccleaner which allows you to exclude Adobe Flash files under the applications menu.

I got this on Gamers Gate in a bundle. Is this game finished or is that a beta?

Also, will there be a way to make this fullscreen? I'd really like fullscreen

The game is finished. We just need to take care of a couple things before we release it on Desura. It will probably be released sometime next week. The date it shows right now is just placeholder.

Unfortunately full screen isn't possible but It can still be re-sized any way you want. The games default resolution is 800x600 so it will look best at that size.

Let me know if you have any more questions. I hope you enjoy the game.

This game interests me in a way I cannot describe. It's like I'm drawn to it. I can't wait to see it when it's completed. If the videos you've posted are anything to go by - the writing seems equal parts disturbing and satisfying. Keep up the good work.
