Overgrowth joins Steam Early Access


8:00 PM on 12.17.2013



Early Access titles are slowly but surely starting to take over Steam's list of top sellers. Following the prolific DayZ Standalone alpha joining Early Access yesterday, another game that's been kicking around for a while now, Overgrowth, has been added today. On Steam, it's slightly cheaper, coming in at $24.95 vs. the Humble Store offer of $29.99 (which also includes a Steam key, and access to Wolfire Games' Receiver and Low Light Combat).

Wolfire also has a put out a helpful video explaining what Overgrowth is beyond "that fighting game with the anthropomorphic animals." It is that, yes -- but it's also so much more. Combat is context-sensitive and technical in ways that screenshots can't do justice.

It's exactly the kind of game I'm terrible at, but I have a substantial amount of respect all the same.

I died an embarrassing amount in Hotline Miami 2

Anyone that has even the slightest bit of familiarity with Hotline Miami knows what defines it. The neon-swathed visuals, the gratuitous violence, the quick and unforgiving gameplay, and the blaring soundtrack all made the ga...more

High Strangeness lets you shift between 8-bit and 16-bit

With the help of indie publisher Midnight City, High Strangeness is coming out late this year on PC and consoles.
