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”

This really is a great game, but the fact that you need a code to get mods is stupid.
I did have a code but for some reason the code says its been used, in other words hacked and stolen.
If i was developing the game i would make it so that you still had a use for the code, but still let people have fun with mods by implamenting a workshop for mods and maps which you didn't need a code for, if this happend i would play the game MUCH more than i do.

Please rate so that a workshop is implamented.

If smacking someone in the face with a machinegun of some sort doesn't do it for you in games, then this is the game for you! It's not a game where you click and the game plays a hit animation for whatever you clicked. In this game, your character basically becomes a physics object and the force will actually transfer to your opponent ( e.g. if you roundhouse someone, they will go FLYING in the opposite direction (unless they blocked, in which case, awww too bad)).
Oh, there's also parkour.
And mods.
And maps.
And a forum.
and a community-created mod browser.
Ok go buy it now.

P.S. It isn't a furry game, nor is Lugaru. Apparently, David thought it would be too brutal on humans and with rabbits, the jumps and what not are more realistic. And the combat is pretty brutal.
Oh, and there's instakilling wolves. And weapons.
Ok seriously now go buy this game.

I have much more hours on the SUMlauncher version, so Ignore my current hours

Overgrowth is an amazing game with creativity pumped into its veins. I've been following this game for a while now, And you get updates every 2-3 months, which from a group of 4? I believe is pretty impressive. Some people believe that this game will be stuck in alpha forever, But I decided to hang on, because of the moddability using the SUMlauncher version.
Animations are very clean smooth and rarely are sluggish, but you can find some glitches here and there, But it's an alpha game.

The game itself visually looks stunning, if you have a computer that's able to withstand it.

9/10 Would kick furries again <3

Let me start this off by saying this: Overgrowth is a good game. In it's current state, however, I don't recommend it. (I'm going to keep this a positive review to avoid confustion) It's been in development hell for so long. But you know what? I understand that. The devs are a small group of people who are doing this in their free time. What I don't understand is the price tag. $30 USD is a far too big of a price for an alpha. There just isn't enough content as of right now for the price. I'd say buy it when it goes on sale.
Another problem is how frequently it updates. It doesn't. But when it does, it's usually fixing animations and stuff like that. Yes, that is important in a game, but I just want at least one update where something new is added. But like I said, the devs are a small group of people and I understand how long it would take.

As of right now, Overgrowth is a fun little tool that you can play with for a while. I suppose if you know how to program and all that jazz you could make a mod for it and add some stuff. I, however, don't know how to do that. So for now, it's going to sit untouched in my library until there is a significant update.

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".

By the looks of it, a very well-made physics-based bunny-ninja fighting game, with tons of room for potential. I enjoyed it very much.

My only problem is that it's been in early access for a looong time, and updates come very slowly (but in bigger chunks, I've noticed). Just a heads up that updates take patience.

I'd recommend this game to anyone who likes... bunny-ninjas, fighting and parkour I guess.

I jumped at a rock, smashed my head and died.


All jokes aside, Overgrowth is a very fun game the combat is fast paced and brutal i love it, the free-running too is easy to learn and very smooth, it is very fun to muck around in, run around or hurt some animals, but after that, theres not alot to it right now, maybe in future updates there will be more content

and i freaking love rabbits, and this game :D

It's like Brink, but with more Bunny-Ninjas, Neck-Snapping, Blood-Splatting, Wolf-Kicking, Wall-Running, Smile-Making Fun, and without all the Awful that is Brink.
Okay, It's nothing like Brink...
The grenades, however, are about as effective as those found in Brink... but that's because there aren't any here...
If this wasn't helpful at all, It's just because you aren't getting your daily dose of Brink.

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.

This is game is great! It's not really a game yet though. Ok, it's basically a pretty impressive game engine... for a one man team... if the engine was released a few years ago. The rabbit shoots blood out of its neck and it drains down the mesh in real time. I guess that's a weird thing to recommend it for.

I give up. In truth I just play it for the furry art. There, I said it. You don't want to know what I do when I play this game and Steam won't let me tell you.

It's been in development for years and never updates. Buggy as hell, crashes constantly, and pretty much a level editor at this point. I'm sure it will be great in 2025 when it releases, but for now you'd best stay away.

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.

The game which got me into game development and art. Made by inspiring developers with bad habits of blowing people's minds. Development may be slow, but atleast they are doing everything right. If you are interested in game development or game engine development, you better follow averything these guys do! (err not that closely).

also It's not skeletal damage system, you twatosaurusNerd^3.
