Overload - the spiritual successor to Descent

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Remember the game Descent? I loved it back in the old days. I played all three Descent games. Now Overload is coming out. Made by many of the original developers - now a small independent game studio. Overload was Kickstarted and has been on Steam Early Access for quite some time. On May 31 2018 it releases into version 1.0. Right now they started an open beta for the multiplayer. You'll find instructions how to join on their Discord #mp-announcement (link below).

Time to find out if the updates give me motion sickness too! Woot! Love to see some of these classics coming back with gameplay that's amazingly accurate.

Cool, watched trailer dig the music!  At first I thought the game was called Overlord, which works too.  :)

I played it quite a bit, during Early Access and now since the release. It is as good as it promises to be. There could not be a better Descent successor. Multiplayer is also a lot of fun.
