Overload

Overload is a 6DoF (Six Degrees of Freedom) first-person shooter developed by Revival Productions. The studio was created by the experienced developers responsible for the iconic Descent series, from which Overload takes handfuls of inspiration. Just like in its precursor, the players control a futuristic vehicle that breaks all the laws of physics with its movement mechanics. Our job will be to destroy a reactor and escape in one piece. Overload focuses on the exploration of the unique locations, created according to the "deformed cube" scheme from the Descent series, searching for shortcuts, and looking for keys that unlock next levels of the compound. We will also face hordes of enemies and free the hibernated hostages. We will use a wide array of weapons during our adventures. Each element of our arsenal can be modified to increase its power. We will have to use a more tactical approach when fighting bosses. The game comes with an editor that allows us to create our own maps and missions. Overload features high-quality 3D visuals and a characteristic soundtrack composed by Dan Wentz and Allister Brimble, composers of the music from the original Descent.

Overload for PC / Windows is a 6DoF (Six Degrees of Freedom) first-person science fiction shooter developed by Revival Productions. The game is a spiritual successor to the cult game series Descent. Studio that created Overload is made of the creators of the original Descent games, but they have lost the rights to the franchise when they sold it to the studio Descendent, who developed the official contuniation called Descent: Underground.

The Plot

Just like in the Descent games, plot in Overload for PC / Windows is not that important and elaborate and works as a modest background for gameplay. We control a futuristic space vehicle and our goal is to destroy a reactor that is defended by dozens of robots and escaping in one piece.

Mechanics

Gameplay mechanics in Overload for PC / Windows are an updated version of what players could see in the original Descent. We will fight with numerous robots from which every single one uses different battle tactics. During our adventures we will explore many locations (designed according to the “deformed cube” scheme known from Descent), look for shortcuts, search for keys that will give as access to new parts of the compound, and free the cryogenically frozen hostages. In combat, we will use one of the twelve available weapon types which we can upgrade as we play, making them more powerful. It is important because we will have to face not only regular enemies, but also more powerful bosses. Depending on player’s skills and preferences, the game offers five difficulty levels.

Game Modes

Unlike the original Descent series and the multiplayer Descent: Underground, Overload for PC / Windows focuses on single player and has no multiplayer modes.

Technical Aspects

Overload for PC / Windows combines solutions from the original Descent games with modern, highly detailed and advanced visuals. Soundtrack was composed by the real veteran composers, Dan Wentz and Allister Brimble. They have created music for the original Descent games and other productions like Freespace: Great War or Dungeon Master II. The game comes with a functional editor that allows the players to create their own maps and missions.

System requirements

Minimum: Intel Core 2 Duo 2 GHz, 4 GB RAM, graphic card 512 MB GeForce 8800 or better, 100 MB HDD, Windows XP(SP2)
