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”

*BEFORE YOU START TYPING THAT COMMENT ABOUT HOW DUMB AND EVIL I AM, READ THE COMMENTS BECAUSE I MADE SOME GOOD POINTS IN THERE ALSO.*

Honestly, I can't recommend this game. Yes it's fun to play. Yes the combat is good. BUT THERE IS NOTHING TO DO. This game has been in Devlopment since 2008 and it's STILL in Early Access! That's ridiclous! There is nothing to do and it's still extremely glitchy even after 6 full years of development. It feels like something that should be worth about $5 and not $30 (which is how much I paid for it). The developers update it once every 3 months and seriously, what game has 200+ versions of alpha?!? "It is still very much in development" for how much longer? I'll be quiet happy when in 2030 The full game will probably be released at the rate they are making this game.

Graphics 6/10

Combat 9/10

Replayability THERE IS NOTHING TO DO.

Story ?/10

Pick this up if it's on sale for $5 MAXIMUM.

**EDIT/UPDATE**

To the people saying that this is just "a side project" and that the team have full time jobs, go to the steam store and search up Unturned. That game was made BY A 16 YEAR old student and it already has more content than overgrowth. Students are the busiest people with all of their exams and homework and stuff but look at that kid. Did I mention that Unturned is FREE and this "Development" game is $30 ♥♥♥♥ing dollars?!? And Unturned is just one example of MANY games made by small groups of people in their free time, so don't give me ♥♥♥♥ing excuses that what they already implemented in this game is "6 years of development".

**EDIT/UDATE** #2

So most of you hav already listened to me and are not buying this game but there are still a few people who think Overgrowth is still in development because it's hard to make and such. And let me just start off by saying one of the BIGGEST issues I have with this game, it's enourmous price tag. A game this unfinished should be $5 maxium or less. Second thing I want to address that I have been getting alot of hate about: People are saying that in Untured (which is the game I used as an example of a different game) has nothing in it, yea but that's the point it's FREE and he's updating it way more than overgrowth. Third issue probably the biggest one: Development rate, I know they have full time jobs and I KNOW it's hard to program a game like this but COME ON people! This game updated like 5 times in this WHOLE YEAR (2014) and there was nothing added, nothing special that screamed "Wow I really should play some of this game!" it was mostly just animaton fixes and such. So for a gmae that costs $30 and tons of people bought it let's just say around 10,000 people bought this game at FULL price expecting a game: 30 x 10,000= $300,000. Where does that money go? straight into the devlopers pockets and you're not getting ANYTHING back.
I think I have made my point here.

Overgrowth is a third person action game where you get to play as giant rabbits, rats, wolves and more fighting against other rabbits, rats, wolves and more. The game's main selling point is it's brutal combat which is best witnessed in the arena where you are automatically pitted against enemies either with your bare hands or with one of the game's few weapons. If you don't want to play the arena you can wander around one of the game's other maps and if you wish you can even spawn in enemies to take on. Despite all of these features the game has one glaring issue which completely changes whether or not you should buy this game.

+Great graphics
+Brutal and enjoyable combat
+You can slow down time
+Good controls
+Maps are quite nice and reasonably large
+If you play on the arena you are automatically put in to teams (or not) to fight other enemies and you are equipped with weapons automatically
+A number of different species you can play as
+There are different challenges for you to complete
+Good physics
+Decent modding community
+Good platforming mechanics

-This game has been in Alpha since 2008 and it's currently on build 209, updates are few and far between and offer nothing more than bug fixes, they do not add any more ways to keep you playing and more importantly they still haven't added the campaign modes which were promised
-Gets very repetitive very quickly
-Horribly overpriced considering what you get
-The game's platforming mechanics are wasted on the maps that are currently available, i.e. they're very flat maps or easy to get around
-Frequent crashes
-Long loading times

Verdict:
Do not buy this game.

It's a wonderful concept but I don't think the execution could be much worse and with it's current price tag and considering it's effectively just a tech demo with little to do you'd be wasting your money on a project that has been in Alpha for 7 years and is likely to remain in Alpha for the next 7 years.

Soooo much potential! This is clearly a work of love, but as a result updates are sparse with no end in sight...

If your happy playing with editor and making your own content give it a try as the core mechanics are solid.

TLDR; Ninja rabbit game involing beating each other up after just pakouring like an assassin in a sandbox world (For now)
Overgrowth,
A currently in-Alpha Sandbox,Level-editor,Brawler and Parkour game, where the enviroment is your most effective weapon and the factor that usually determines your survival. (And no I don't mean that the Earth just engulfs your enemies when you're about to die)

The fighting is fast paced and based on a sort of skeletal structure, which means if you get hard enough, somethings going to break. IE. Throwing someone over your shoulder and it just so happens they land on their neck and it kills them, or you boot some poor soul hard enough you send him flying into a wall to have his spine broken and then he is paralyzed and no longer a problem.

The parkour, from what I've seen and is very fast paced, wall jumping, wall running, leaping great distances, this allows people to make very interesting and huge maps that require you to be a skilled ninja rabbit (Unlike me because I usually make my rabbits 8 feet tall and obese, so I can use that as an excuse as to why I can't parkour to even save my life) to succeed in such levels.

Speaking of creating very intense parkour levels and such, The Level editor is great for allowing you to, as I stated above to create interesting and unique levels whether it be a large scale battle with swords and spears or an intense ninja parkour challenge, or both, you are able to create it, and if you are too lazy to build an interesting map or the base game materials aren't enough for you, theres a program created for modding the game known as the SUMLauncher(Supported by the Devs themselves) which instantly downloads and places the files in the correct areas so you can use them with no hassle of moving the files yourself, this program has lots of user created mods that range from maps to characters to props.

However the game is still in Alpha and if you're not the person to purhase early and follow a games progress untill its finished then perhaps wait until the game is finished as it is very worth it already in its current state, and I recommend getting it early and watching it grow and develop.

It's fun but its been in development for almost 7 years and it crashes all the time with missing or bad files the most i've been able to play at one time was like 2 hours then it crashed i still think it's okay but 200+ alphas is pretty ridiculous.

Feels kinda empty right now, like there isn't much to do. Right now, can't recommend it. Although, it does have potential, as the implemented mechanics are very nice and polished.

Serious Review:

Wow. I played this game for a loooooong time when I got it off Wolfire originally, then I got it on steam because reasons, and it has the most fluent and good-feeling combat of ANY GAME EVER. I can't really describe it, you just have to play it. Fluent, brutal, bloody bunny death. With swords.

I really enjoy this game but with no story it gets boring very quickly and please read before judging me as I do enjoy this game but many reasons make up why I don't recommend it.
Pros:
•Gameplay is awesome and action packed
•Physics are awesome
•You can play as ninja rabbits, dogs, rats, cats, wolves, hares.
•Graphics are good and blood is quite realistic


Cons:
•Been in development since 2008 (Most new games an indie team makes game in year or less to release into early access, this game has been in early access for 7 years now and the team consists of 4 people)
•Boring with no real story
•Glitchy at times and you can't say 'its understandable' as its in early access FOR 7 YEARS!


Overall it's a good game with a lot of potential but then again this potential has still taken 7+ years to unveil itself and I am not sure at this rate of updates (about once every few months) that it will become great in a short space of time. It could mould into an open world/parkour/survival game where you kill other animals for pleasure or food, build a hut to live in, etc, etc. The future of this game is in the devs hands and it doesn't seem they know what to do with it. They have had more than enough time to at least make it something better and they have failed to do so. I think they can still improve and make this an amazing game, but for now its not recommended by me.

This game is fun. A nice combination of Parkour and Melee combat. WITH FURRIES!!! It has been in development since forever (like 2008), but the updates keep coming and are substantial. Also, having anthropomorphs that are realistic instead of Anime-ish is a nice change.

There is a massive amount of community made content, but you need to do sketchy stuff to get to it. Freaking SPOF.

Anyway, the Parkour is a normal 3rd person platformer, only you are a ninja rabbit. Also it doesn't suck. You can do more modren things like wall running and climb up ledges. The melee combat is interesting, as you can murder people (Rabbits, Wolves, Rats, Cats, and Dogs) by using weapons, or you can beat them up. Or you can keep beating them up after they are KO'ed and kill them. Stealth is important too, as you can sneak up on dudes to choke them out, or slit their throats, but lone guards might run away and get help. Or rush you with a sword. Then there is a arena, you can practice you combat skills there.

It doesn't run very well on my PC though, I think I need more CPU power.
