Overland – A Post-Apocalyptic Driving Game

Overland had a trailer release at E3 2016, and the premise sounded absolutely spot-on. As Heather Penn from Finji said, the game was a “road trip across Post-Apocalyptic America” with all levels being “procedurally generated” – which by the way is fast becoming the go-to for games developers.

The game itself, I’m not sure on how it really looks, I’m not really a massive fan of that type of look in a game like this, but I’m not going to judge a book by its cover. I’m still on the fence on this one until I can get my hands on a copy, but you can judge for yourself and take part in their First Access from today (June 13th), for $20, as there are (at the time of writing) just 586 keys remaining (of 1,000) in their current phase of development.

Currently due for release on itch.io, but with grander plans for release on other platforms (and probably Steam and maybe GOG.com) it could well be worth keeping an eye on as they already have quite the dedicated fan-base, and you don’t usually get that with a crap game – so there must be something there.
