Making a demon army, capturing tons of women to enslave, taking over the world…. Ya who wants that? ME. Make more of these games please.
Being a demon lord sith master dark force (copyright) yadadada is pretty awesome!
Overlord focuses on you staying in control of well .. the overlord while you can also control minions. I really like these types of games that are define you as a single character who you are always in control of while manipulating units makes you feel more like a general in the front lines and not a king who is a potato in a castle you never see.
That being said the gameplay is basic and most of it relies on you controlling your minions and solving the puzzles throughout the game. Its more of a puzzle game with combat moments of just sending your minions to rush in and slaughter everything in your way.
Though when you upgrade your character enough you can pretty much slaughter everyone yourself without the need for minions (sounds about right for a evil overlord).
Did I mention my overlord castle had gold practically pouring out of the gates? Thats until i smithed a ton of statues of me in gold… awww the good days.
Spoiler that didn’t happen :’( Though you do get to have a treasure room like Fable 3.
Though I find it hilarious it even has a moral system that is measured in corruption you think the whole OVERLORD with the flames in the background and evil monsters in the front of the game box would be a clear indication that you are a dedicated to being straight up evil. But hey having choice is always nicer than not having choice.
