Dark Scavenger is a game full of humour. The writing is superlative and a credit to the development team, who clearly understand their demographic. The strength of the piece lies in its characterisation rather than narrative, facilitating multiple fresh playthroughs, and the player can’t help but get attached to both their crew mates and nemeses. With visual gags abound in the caricatures, pleasant audio hinting at JRPGS gone by and surreal, charming dialogue brimming with wit, Dark Scavenger is an attractive package for the nostalgic, the adventure-buff and the comedy hound alike.
