This is a short 90 minute game, it's a bit cheesy, but overall it's quite fun. Don't expect too much of the story, because it's very simple. I liked the combat mechanics, but the game could use more of those respawn points, as I struggled in the last battle, having to skip the cutscenes over and over again. The game overused the jumpscares, the first one was really point on, but the later ones not so much.

I'd give this game 6/10.

This is a fairly good game for it's price. What I mean by "fairly good" is that it is not one of your usual less-than-a-pound games that all you do is leave them running in the background hoping to get the cards as quickly as possible. It's obvious that this game has been created to be played (I know how strange that sounds :P)

Dont get me wrong, it's not a great/very good game either. It's too short, the visuals are very blurry at times, the plot is a bit all over the place...

On the plus side, it does have a nice soundtrack and some scary moments (especially in the first chapters...)

All in all, I am giving this a positive vote. Why? Because I can see that the guys who created this, actually made an effort to make a game worth playing.

But is it a game worth playing? Yes, for an hour or two...

I wouldn't buy this game at full price - only at a discount.

My recommendation is to avoid this title and check out some of the other horror games on Steam.

For me, Overcast - Walden and the Werewolf was a boring game. It feels way too empty and I feel like more time went into the details/graphics than the actual game itself (leaving the player high and dry in the Gameplay & Controls department).

In my opinion the graphics are amazing. Everything looks well-detailed and whatnot but the actual gameplay & controls are klunky at best but I suppose for a $0.99 cent game you get what you pay for.

I've never actually completed this game. I always get stuck in the same spot - trying to climb back up the basement stairs to get back into the house but the game just doesn't want to let me do that.

PROS
+ Grapics are pretty cool.
+ Includes 6 Steam Trading Cards.

CONS
- The game is WAY too dark. I understand it's supposed to be spooky, but c'mon, you can hardly see anything.
- You might experience random FPS drops.
- No Steam Achievements.
- Weapons reloading is unrealisticly slow.
- Everything else

My Rating: 4/10 (Not Recommended)

RIP Headphone users.

- One hour long campaign.
- Terrible models.
- Terrible animations.
- Glitches everywhere.
- Pretty much no plot.
- One jump scare every 5 minutes.
- The screen is blurred during 40% of the game.
+ I got it for free.
+ The last boss battle is so loud and has so many screen effects that it looks like one of those MLG montages.
- I hate those montages.

People say this game sucks...and they are right, more-less.
Visuals are average and too much blurry (even for a horror game), gameplay is lousy, music is so-so (ain't bad, but it ain't appropriate for this game) and story is extremely lame and boring. The game is too short. But, it can be depressive and scary sometimes.

But, unlike some other indie FPS games that were made in some "make-your-own-fps-in-5-minutes-or-less-game-creator", I get the feeling that these two guys that made this game (if I am correct) actually tried their best. And for that, I give them thumbs up.

Plus, it's a cheap game.

Wow. Easily a top 5 worst game I own. Probably the worst one I've actually completed. Terrible Amnesia mod looking graphics, an idiotic story, and amusingly bad writing = this game is the cr@p fest total package. Cherry on top - the dev banned me on the forums within minutes of posting about how bad the game is. Such garbage I'm half tempted to give this a thumbs up instead.

Overcast : Walden and the Werewolf is a Western Survival Horror game.
You are Walden, an old hunter who lives alone in the woods, without any connection with the society, making nature his only form of livelihood. Walden began to be haunted by a mysterious creature that destroyed the village located near his cabin, killing every person residing on the premises. Now, Walden wants revenge.
Overcast is played in the first person, with your left hand perpetually holding a lantern and your right holding your useless weapon. Throughout the games nine chapters, which takes around 1 hour to finish, you guide Walden around as he solves extremely easy puzzles and shoots werewolves and other evil creatures. The game controls work well enough, with the exception of climbing ladders.
The graphics are extremely poor, besides of the annoying film grain that is overlaying the screen and impossible to turn off.
There is no voice acting, the story is told by the use of text phrases.
The only noteworthy aspect of this game, would be the music. The soundtrack is well done and serve as a nice background.
Overcast : Walden and the Werewolf is no horror game at all, it is an extremely poor game in nearly every sense. Unoriginal concepts, poor graphics and most importantly the game play is just no fun at all.
It is a waste of time and of money. My advice: Hands away!

Sounds 5/10
Graphics 2/10
Gameplay 2/10
Atmosphere 1/10

A really amateurish effort that feels like a poorly made mod. The game starts out as a mediocre atmospheric horror game and devolves into a horrid FPS. It feels like the devs were running out of ideas or weren't really sure where to go after the fourth level. Don't waste your time or money on this one.
