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.

Onechanbara Z2: Chaos trailer full of tits, upskirts, and murder

Holy crap, that song it goes into around the 45-second mark is so damn bad. Onechanbara Z2: Chaos is hitting PS4 in Japan this October, where it can hopefully help shift some units, as the PS4 library isn't tickling the country's collective fancy. Looks I lot better than the Onechanbara I played on Wii. more
