Overlord (Demo out)

Postby [FnG] Rotten_Emu » Sat Jun 16, 2007 2:17 am

Overlord is a RPG/Strategy/Silly game made by Dutch Game devellopers (Codemasters), same people behind "Age of Mythology" (not the weak AoE rip off but a genuine original turn based strategy). It's got Monty Python'esque humour and looks rather good (for a beta).

The story is like this... like a dozen games before and probably a whole lot more after there is a group of heroes... this group stops an evil overlord and go home happily... however... this is not the end of the game "Overlord" it's merely the beginning. Because after beating the Overlord the Heroes are struck by the Seven Deadly sins... (The hobbit is taken by Gluttony :wink:)

And you are the new overlord (or born renew overlord) that swears revenge and re-establishment of his evil empire... and to help you with this there are Imps! The Imps drag around stuff for you... from pots of gold to lifeforce... from dead bodies to trees... they just lug it and smash it and kill it... etc etc... :P

If you enjoyed Pikmin (Nintendo Gamecube) and like a bit sarcastic, parody, monty python like humour than you should definately give the Demo a whirl... it's a bit big in size and a bit small in length but it will give a pretty good idea:

It is very cool indeed, the camera was a bit getting used too though..., but it's ok :D

Btw, the Dutch Developers... that's the Triumph Studios side, not Codemasters... ;)

...it DOES say codemasters in the trailer... Perhaps it's a joint effort...

edit: and Yes, I am going to get this game in the near future... :P
With kind regards, Mathijs

EA Games appears on a lot of those trailers, but they almost never make the game :P A few exceptions, because sometimes they took over a studie which created the game they are making another sequel to(o) :P
The publisher and developer story..., some people saying that EA makes such bad games... when they sometimes have nothing to do with the project but publishing it :P

Of course also pushing it to make the deadline no matter what... who cares that the customers get a Beta version :P

Downloaded the demo for xbox 360 and I thought it was pretty average . But for dutch developers its actually quite good, haven't seen something this impressive sinds knight rider the game. lol
Didn't really sense much depth in the gameplay, but the minions are da bomb.
