Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

“Thank you for checking out our Early Access page! If you support us now, you will be able to try out the combat mechanics in the arena prototype, duel your friends on the same machine by hooking up two controllers, and use the integrated level editor to explore and modify a number of included environments. You will be able to try out the features in the new alpha videos as soon as they are released.

However! The game is still undergoing very active development, so you can expect bugs and performance issues as the game progresses and changes. In its current state, it is more like a sandbox of technology and martial arts, and less like a story-driven action-adventure. If you want to play through a polished campaign, you may want to wait until the game is fully completed! If you would like to have fun experimenting with our technology and mechanics as they evolve, and support us as we complete the game, then now is a great time to join our community.

Sincerely,
David Rosen”

As previous reviewrs have mentioned, development is slow, but considering it's a one (or two/three) man team working with an engine they created - a good looking and ambitous one for such a small team - of course it takes time to make changes to such an engine.
If you've ever played Lugaru and wish to support their Dev(s) in their goal to create a sequel and help them along the way with feedback (Wich is what Early Access is for, not buying, complaining about an unfinished game and getting a refund as you downvote it; Which ironically makes it harder to develop as funding is pulled) then go ahead and spend the money if you can spare it.


Also, you can play Local Co-Op and kill your friends. Just don't downvote becuase you don't know where the controller goes into your computer.

So I paid lots of money for a game I could never play after all. Do I get my money back?

When I bought the early access version it was super slow and laggy so I thought, it's still in development, just give it time. It looked like a very promising game. Several years later, we're still in alpha and now it's so laggy it's even slow for a slideshow. I have never been able to play this ♥♥♥♥ing game. Yes I don't have top game gear, but neither does every single player on Steam. This is worse than Duke Nukem Forever – at least they delivered a game after like 10 years, even if it sucked.

i bought alpha access years ago and have never regreted it.

yes it has been in development for the entire time i have owned it but so what its just acouple people making it. most of the work they are doing on it at this point is behind the sences.

combat is top notch though the sping kick is still op but its fun to use that. the physics are amazing. graphics are well beyond any other indie game.

i definatly say its worth the buy even though its been in alpha for years even just playing around with the editor is fun

Product received for free
I was lucky enough to receive this game when it was free, because I would definetly not buy this game for 30$. Overgrowth is a parkour, fighting, sandbox mix with a lot of potential.

Pros:
Good Graphics
Kick ♥♥♥ combat
Pretty good level editor

Cons:
Overpriced as ♥♥♥♥!
lag in certain places of a few maps
very few updates that actually change the game whatsoever (however alpha 224 is the most recent alpha as of the time I right this review, which does have a lot of changes. So maybe we could be getting more updates that actually improve/change the game.)
Needs some serious bug fixes (But it's in alpha so I'll let it slide for now)


So why am I recommending this game? Because it is full of potential and could become a fantastic game. But I'm not recommending it as of now, buy it 2 or 3 years when it's in alpha 330. Odds are a lot of good as been done to the game buy them. And maybe through the graces of god it will be in beta by then. But I won't be surprised if either you forget about it or it's discontinued by then.

My Friend: This game is a wonderful, Amzaing game! Buy it! Omg! Something combat! Something Bunnies!
Me: (2 years later):... -_-

Okay, to be honest the combat is pretty damn good. This was the selling point for me. I'm a combat (W)hore (that just sounds... bad). And to be honest, that is the only thing this game has going for it. "But of course! It's a fighting game!" *bell*- Wrong. Kinda. Okay, this game is a fighting game (I think) and it's combat serves that purpose. But really the bugs, optimization, price (YES THIS GAME IS OVERPRICED AS FUDGE [litterly]), and of course the really crappy developers make this game terrible. This game has been out since... 2012? And from realise I think the only notable changes I have seen have been... Uh... Arena mode? Ya that.


So to narrow that ^ down...
Pros:
-Combat
-Combat
-Combat
-Bunnies (if your into that thing)

Cons:
-Optimization
-Bugs
-Over priced as hell (if hell was selling)
-Really laid back, lazy, undeveloping developers

So if your one of those people that do combat for money... (Combat [W]hore refferance) then you might like this game. If you can run it and it can run you (Ya. Bugs.) then do what I did when I bought the game... Take a deep breath and say... "YOLO!".

Now, Keep in mind this game is still in Alpha (4 years later....) so who knows, this game might be totally abandoned by the developers (kinda already is....), or the game could get a lot better. It's really a gamble. So if you have $30 to burn... Save it and buy a good game.

Me (2 years later): Hey remeber Overgrowth?
Friend (2 years later): WTFluff is Overgrowth... Combat?
Me: Combat.

^This about sums up the game.

Most negative reviews are people who cannot run the game or people who are tired of the game taking a long time to develop. I myself love this game and have had many hours playing it. I even played it before it was on steam. I love this game and it is definitely worth your time. Watching the game develop is quite fun.

Now alot of people hate the game for the fact that it has taken years to finish. The game is meant to be very big and will have many things. The devs add cool little things atleast 1 time a month (there are weeklyish updates and they add cool little features but there hasn't been new weapons or stuff added in a bit). The game is going to take a long time and there is a small dev team so hating the game for the reason it is taking a long time to develop is just stupid. If you want the finished game just buy it when it is done but you will be missing out on watching the game grow.

Good game 10/10

I got this game when it was on sale a while back and i love this game,but the game devs are takeing FOREVER makeing this game and doing pointless things with no real changes with the actual game and i had my fun with it but it NEEDS TO MAKE ACTUAL CHANGES TO THE GAME.The devs dont seem to realize this and its really sad.All they seem to be doing is small things like grapical changes and at one point "makeing it so the ears dont clip through your body when you do things".who has ever messaged a friend like "YO DOOD THEY FIXED THE EAR THING OMG 10/10".im not saying fixing things like that are bad things but when your fixing things like that vs better gameplay you can see were it can get people mad and i agree,The changes they made are things some games make in a single year and thats sad.... really sad.It makes me feel like there getting paid for doing nothing and then comeing up with a small change just so they can make a little vidieo on what they changed that makes me more and more sad eachtime seeing what little progress they made in such time.I feel i did get my moneys worth but this game is really up my alley,i feel the avrage gamer would not like it and thats why i cant recomend it unless they acually make meaningfull changes to the game.(sorry for the bad spelling)

Looking back on old game purchases, Overgrowth has to be one of the biggest wastes of money. I bought this before it was on steam, didn't play it for years until I saw it was on steam, got my steam key booted it up and found that in 6+ years of alpha it was still in the concept art and engine development stage, yech.

I was 13 years old when I started following this project. Being such a huge fan of Lugaru as a flawed gem I was super excited about this because I was thinking "Holy ♥♥♥♥ a sequel to lugaru with updated graphics? Sign me up".

I am 21 years old as I write this review. A lot has happened over the span of 9 years; Duke Nukem Forever and Th4f released and were both awful, Half Life 3 still isn't out (Though at this rate it'll be out before overgrowth even gets into beta) I've had my first alcoholic drink, I've found someone I love enough to marry, David Rosen, a man behind this project(?) who made me want to get into game development when I was younger cause of how much I loved Black Shades and Lugaru has said some unbelievably ignorant things on twitter, yet still, despite all of that, Overgrowth is still in alpha.

They update this game half as often as they used to since the game went on steam; Presumably because they have made the money they wanted to make off of this through early access.

It's tough to complain about a game that is still being updated because I'd be the first to say that I'd rather a game get developed long enough to be polished rather than release in an Ubisoft tier state of bugginess, but there comes a point where it's just time to let go. If you want to play a game like this, just go get Lugaru HD. Its map design is very simplistic but at least it feels somewhat finished unlike Overgrowth.

Overgrowth is a shell of an actual game. It's more of a tech demo. Overgrowth has been in development for like 8 years and the progress that it's made in the last 3 years is laughable.

I've had some fun with it, but I just want my money back at this point. Not worth the $30. I know the story mode is never going to come, and this game is never going to be polished.

I've grown up with this game, it has tought me many things

Not because it's good...but because it's been in ♥♥♥♥ing alpha for about all my teenage years.

It's seriously like the bellends who develop this have got no clue what it's even going to be so it's never going to be fully released. The ♥♥♥♥ing modding community has added more than the devs already.

See you when it's finally in beta in 2066, k

EDIT: Game cancelled? Yet anothher excellent example of why we should not buy into early access ♥♥♥♥.

This game is solid for an early access. The title has earned a special place in our scam list, and most would agree that the number of devs that abuse the system are enormous. However, after a long period of stagnant development, the devs have come back, and fequent updates seem to have come back.

Is the price of 30USD waaay too much? Yes. At it's current stage of development, I'd say 10-15 is a much, much better price. I'd recommend waiting until it's on sale for at least 50% off. That way, you don't feel like you're risking too much on a game that, as always, could just stop being updated forever.

It's more of an arcade game at the moment. It's fun to play occationally, messing around with the weapons and parkour mechanics. Get it at a good price, and you shouldn't feel ripped off. Summer sales, ho!
