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”

I don't know if this guy was going with a Furry Fandom when he though about this but I must say I love the fact i'm not a human when I go around kicking a$$ in it, and then getting my a$$ kicked by other rabbit/wolf/cat/dog/robot Wahey, but it's pretty damn fun.

PROS:

Combat System: I popped into this game not knowing what to expect, and then my face hit the floor and I realized I had some work to do. This is a combat system like no other, this isn't Button Mashing 101, you actually don't swing when you hit LMB, you have to get up close and hit it, and with each directional button you hit when you swing you do different things, like a roundhouse kick, a jab, hook, roll away, etc. So if you go into this game expecting to mash buttons and win, you are gonna be on the floor with your neck broken fairly quickly.

No humans, just animals: There are no humans in this game, just anthro bunnies/wolfs/cats/robots/dogs, which is a different change, and probably a huge A+ when it comes to the Furry community, which I am part of. But I really like the fact it isn't just "Another human" this guy is actually putting something different in place of what a character usually is, and I like it.

Classes: There are other classes, as I said the wolf, cat, etc. The wolf is basically a one hit kill for the bunnies, as for the others I haven't tried yet, I like the Rabbit too much.

The Ninjas: Every class is apparently a Ninja, I guess that would make sense since they wallrun, hop REALLY HIGH, with the amazing fighting skills and the ability to throw a spear/sword at a opponent and get a 1 hit kill off of it.

No stamina/health bar: I like this honestly, you just kind of have to guess if you are about to die or not, since they don't bother you with a little health bar, plus you don't really have little stamina, as far as I know you have infinite, but you kind of have to watch how much blood you lose, especially when it comes to weaopns

Weapons: There are weapons in this game, and I really love them, despite the fact you can 1 hit kill if you throw it at them from behind or throw a spear at the opponents head, I got into some really heated sword battles that lasted several minutes or longer, and damn they were really fun too.

Feel like a total bada$$: The title speaks for itself, when you start rolling around punching, roundhousing, jump kicking, and slicing everyone up I felt like the Master of weapons untill I got constantly kicked while rolling, but it was nice while it lasted.

Wounds: If you get wounded by a weapon he actually holds near the wound with a hand if he has a open hand, I just think it's a neat little feature to notice that you are injured, like the ammount of blood pouring out of you wasn't enough already.

Different maps + Arena: I love the Arena even though on ocassions I get totally screwed over with how laggy it can get in that stupid arena on slight ocassions, but there is different maps to run around with and explore, with enemies you can fight so you can do something.

Responsive controls: I feel as if when I hit something it actually DOES what I want, instead of me hitting a button and it just kind of does whatever it's supposed to, problem though is with some weapon fighting the Roll doesn't really want to work on ocassions, and I don't know why.

Challenges: There are many challenges to do and they are pretty fun, I only did a few like kill a few enemies with just your fists, I'll have to try the rest later on.

Different skins/clothes: Each animal has different clothes, mainly the Bunny though, like there is a Assassin like outfit if you hit the "1" key a few times it changes his color, clothes, and clothes color, so you can be the one you want.

CONS:

REALLY long loading times: Half the time the levels take FOREVER to load, yet I get around 300 frames, I don't think it should take several minutes to load up a level that I've played several times over and still take me 5 minutes to load up.

Constantly kicked: As I said in the pros I'll explain abit more, I was playing on a Dune level and I found a rabbit to fight, he kicked me down, I rolled, he kicked me WHILE I was rolling and then I snapped my neck, then when I tried to go back and kick the s%*t out of him he did it AGAIN. I think the roll needs to be a little bit tweaked, maybe when you roll you can't get hit untill the moment he starts getting up or something? That way you get some time to get up and get your thoughts together, as well as be able to fight back.

Jumping Physics: These are really weird, I was jumping around and had to jump back to where a enemy was cause I jumped away, he litterally did a 0.1 milisecond turn and had a s@%t ton of momentum and jumped all the way back, which kind of struck me as off, it's also weird to jump around a enemy cause you can't really turn all that well which feels kind of weird. It doesn't help that when you land on a slope he instantly turns to go down the slope and moves down, so if i'm on a small ledge and jump and land, i'm most likely gonna fall off.

Not much after a while: After you do the maps and arena a few times there isn't a whole lot left, there are challenges but even then it feels like it needs something, I say a Randomly generated map or something, just click a button, it randomizes a map and enemies with terrain and you go around exploring it to see what you can find.

WHAT I THINK:

I think this game is really fun and can have a lot of potential, and I feel confident it's gonna go somewhere in this guy's hands, he's already shown a lot of potential with just the combat system and the way it feels to roll around and fight instead of just another game where you press buttons and hope to win. The game gets a 7/10 It needs some work and some additions but it's pretty f$#%ing good for what "I" was expecting out of it.

The reason this game is so amazing is because the character controller for the game has been forged with blood sweat and tears by Wolfire. One of the greatest controllers of all time with attention to detail and expected but always surprising actions your character performs. You know a game is good when you can be entertained just by running around in a blank area. Just imagine when this game gets to Beta..

Early Access Review
Overgrowth is ambitious. In fact, I've never seen another openworld game quite like it. In it's present state, this game has tremendous potential and requires community support to see that potential realized. I feel that many Steam users have been spoiled by more polished alpha state games and expect the same from Overgrowth. This title is a reminder of what an EARLY ACCESS game really is. Developers bring their games to Steam in Early Access looking for community support to shape the game into something they want to play. This game is perfect for that concept. At the time of this review (update 206), Wolfire is focusing on the campaign mode for the game. However, there is plenty of room for change while the game remains in alpha. I highly recommend this game to anyone who finds it appealing. Everything this game has to offer is out in the open and plain to see. You are getting an openworld close quarters combat simulator. The physics are impressive, and the character models are a welcome break from the staples in the fantasy genre. If you are expecting a polished, complete game, stop looking at early access titles. Only get this game if you are willing to support Wolfire and see this game reach completion.

Overgrowth. The game about bunnies and various other animals battling it out to prevent becoming a massive red mess of liquid and to feel the pain the usual ragdoll physic.

As Overgrowth is currently still in early alpha and has been for a few years, a structured story still hasn't been implemented BUT the current 'challenges' keep you feeling amused and entertained. The main appeal about this game is the combat system (the best of any game I've ever witnessed). Every single encounter provides something new and makes you feel like a complete baddass if you are provided with a victory. The maps feel fresh and different and the in-game editor provides hours and hours of extra interest.

BUY THIS NOW.

(The steam game time doesn't represent what I've played, I've had it for around two years (as of Dec 2013) and I've probably stuck around 150 hours or so into the game as it wasn't on steam before.)
