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

10/10 best Horror throwing simulation ever. Throw boxes, throw cups, throw chairs, throw crates, throw decapitated heads, throw arms, throw legs. Throw them all! With a few screamer scares sprinkled on top, nothing could go wrong!

$0.19 well spent

An hour long. Terribly boring. Terribly designed. Arguably the worst horror game I've ever played (and that's saying something). Its idea of scaring you is inverting the colors on the screen, playing a loud noise & showing random dead horses...not even joking. I can't believe I just spent an hour of my life playing through this trash. If you enjoy having a gun with a 10 second reload, having no checkpoints and dying in one hit to everything then by all means play it. The story makes no sense, you're thrown in random areas for the hell of it & it's just more frustrating than fun. The game itself is more disjointed than this review. I tend to find something good to say even for some of the worst games out there. This one, I can't think of a thing. I guess it's short so the pain only lasts so long?

Honestly, taking into account that it's a one dev's work, and, i presume, the first one of his, i'd like to give this game a thumbs up. But feels like it just wouldn't be right, and not recommending it is sure to save many players from dissapointment and the dev himself from offensive comments.
Though i can recommend it to those who like getting themselves in some new surroundings to walk through another short and primitive story and have little care for how bad them both were thought out. You'd even find a little pretty scenery(if you like that kind of it), slightly scary for noobs visual and sound effects and maybe a couple of other good things. But it won't add enough to make the whole game damn good. Can't say i'm totally dissapointed but looks like screenshots and description on the steam store leave much better impression than the game itself. And everything i relatively liked in this game was getting heavily damaged all the way by the boring combat, based on the idea to kill me twice an episode or a couple times more by primitive logical traps in how it was going on, and almost killed by the ending which was either(i'm sorry, mr developer) stupid or far beyond the limits of my ability to perceive why the hell it had to be ended that way, looking like a text description of a bad movie's promice to be continued(i'd even speculate that's what it is or once had to be).
There was a slight hope for an alternate course of the game story, (here goes a spoiler on a game story event): screaming woman, found dead in my playthroughwhich i don't believe in and don't feel like gonna check it right away i finish typing this. Maybe later.
Combat would be much better with twice faster reloading (compensated with additional enemies) and maybe an option to bash the enemies getting up close with the rifle's butt. A faster reload would also allow to leave the werewolf chazing the player in first contact without lingering on spot when animation shows he's running, which, i suspect was made with a purpose to grant the player a chance to survive with that slow reload.
To say more good about the game - it doesn't take too much time to play through and has no bugs - i only spotted a bot getting stuck against something he had to go round to attack me, twice at the same place.
Buy it on sale, if you're planning to give this game a try.

I'll be honest here.. This game has tons of potential if this creator goes back to this to overhaul it. I think presentation wise it is a good effot to tell a simple story that half of it is told by just looking at how it plays through with your experiences. I grew up in an age when video games were still a new concept and we didn't have fancy graphics or complex gameplay with our games. But they didn't need to be complex to have the user understand the concept of what is going on and how to operate the game. Go ahead and try to play a coleco game or a intellivision game. You will see how simplistic games can be enjoyible.

The one thing I keep seeing about this game is its visuals . Whooptie big ballzy deal. Not all games are based on graphics. "Get that out of your head junior". Story wise I see complaints aswell. Tbh I like short simple stories and this one told a story and got its point across. "Maybe junior you need to get more of your edumacation on the understanding of arts"

Finally the music was well done for this. Now sound effects wise some were ok but I will say don't play the game with headphones on at full blast.. Some of the noises will be so overwhelming and loud it will damage something. I really would like to see this person make a sequel because the end sparked my interest with wanting more. Or expand upon what is here and make it better and fuller with the rest of the story instead of starting over from scratch.

Not worth your cash. Best thing about this is the soundtrack, and that's free.

Check out videos like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tlv2dVr4R98 if you want the story.

I had to stop playing it, because the obnoxiously loud and cheap jumpscares ticked me off.

It looks like they were going for nice a concept, a horror game set in the wild west(at least, that's what I thought they were going for, until I saw a ship that looked like it belonged in the Golden Age of Pirates), where you hunt down a werewolf.

But instead, it felt like they said "♥♥♥♥ it", and just threw crap in it that had nothing to do with the werewolf, like the giant snake you had to kill, and get one of its fangs for god knows what reason. It should be called "Overcast - Walden and the Werewolf, and a Snake for some reason". Plus, the storyline isn't even interesting, and the FPS gameplay is just plain dull.

The only reason I got this game(not through steam, if you get what I mean)was so I can get the soundtrack, because it is good. I mean, VERY good. It's literally the only thing that shines in this poor excuse of a horror game.

The motion blur is terrible.
The objectives aren't really clear say for go here.
The first werewolf you fight kills you no matter what, not sure how you're suppose to proceed.
Not worth it, even on sale. Sorry.

Imagine a failed English major shoving toothpicks down your urethra. While he's doing this he's yelling in your ear and flashing your eyes. Everything about this game is terrible, the animations, the music, models, textures, sound effects, visual filters. In fact this game is so bad it isn't even good, it's past that, it's Avante-Garde. A true post-modern game.

Got it for 19¢ and can proudly say it was money well spent. I was planning on being extremely disappointed by the creators of Dead Bits, but instead I was met with a game who's creators actually put some effort into a game for once. The lack of any type of objective marker was kind of a turn-off and this game relies heavily on jumpscares but does so quite effectively. One of the better games in the Horror genre that I've played, though I wouldn't pay the original hefty $10 for it because I feel as though it's asking a little much. Overcast: Walden and the Werewolf gets an 8/10.

Now what is wrong with all YOU naysayers? I've pondered around your latest comments before(yea, also when on sale!) and when I've bought and played it the last few mintues I feel totally comfy with it! And when I see your commnets again, I was like, "wow, sinister". Yes you got your point but I've got mine, and this is just what a g*ngbang looked like and its making ppl sick(rather then a demo, perhaps?), and they will think twice before buy is all. The maker is an absolute and dedicated fan of classic boltaction rifles to his very CORE and thats just what I've always been, mind you lead sprayers thats something that made the Great Old Wars rather then Afghanistan and I-Rack. Absolutely smooth and well polished game! Use ULTRA graphics and you can see even the dents and sratches on the window frames! I myself don't see that often in a game. From my short experiuence(now just unlocked the second level) I feel no glitches or weirdness whatsoever. (Even the the fruits in the bask look quite nice btw, don't ask pls I had to say it) Why not say NO to all the half life one(dated graphics and sometimes very grinding, ie. figuring out how to start a time machine) fans and yes I completed that one without even being born in the right galaxy to have a strategy guide in the 20th century! You were trying to make this one good guy go out of business for good or what? He did it single handedly, as I heard! YEAH I root for this game and this dude, no matter what that even means. And think this way, all these neg comments won't make a better maket, because this game can be gone rather then better if you keep on shelling like this; but you very likely are going to to ruin one man's life(exagerating? shoot me if you have to) - NOW how does that compare to our bankers? And it IS creepy, dark and suffocating(I honestly prefer my room deco to be silent hill 1 cage style). Finally, this guy put in your hands a good o' rifle and a lantern that goes on longer then your battery-fed flashlight that dies every 1~2 mins in most games and you be grateful to him, and his work. ps: you really loved making that rifle, God bless ya.

Overcast Walden and the Werewolf is a greenlit horror game by Microblast games the devs of Dead Bits which was a bad game in my eyes. But will they step it up with Overcast ? In Overcast you play as Walden. Walden is the most famous hunter in the land. But after a fearsome fight Walden is left injured and only leaves his home at night. One day Walden finds out that an evil spirit Zappiroth destroyed his home village killing everyone who lived there. So its up to you to pick up youre rifle and go fight the demon. So how is Overcast ? Overall this game is average. The game is a huge way better than dead bits but there are its own unique problems and ill try to say everything thats wrong and good with the game. The game is a standart FPS stuff. You can use the rifle to fight demons and bosses but its the most usseless gun in a video game ever doing very little to no damage and the reload speed is incredibly slow and in some parts of the game it doesnt help cause you have to act quickly. For the pros. Game for one guy looks pretty good nothing too special. The soundtrack is great and its the highlight of the game. The game also has pretty good atmopshere. But there are some things that i dont like about it. In some parts Walden starts to trip out and the game drops frame rates and its hard to see where you are walking. The gunplay is absolute garbage and you can never hit what you actually want to hit. Boss fights are annoying and take up too much time. The game is incredibly short only 9 chapters long. Overall i really wished there was a middle option for reviews but now im gonna give it a positive review cause the game aint that bad but its not good either. Overall get this game at a sale and enjoy this game as it is. I give Overcast Walden and the Warewolf a 6/10

If you enjoy scary/horror titles such as Five Nights At Freddy's, Outlast, Slender, Alien Isolation or action games like GTA, Assassins Creed? Maybe you want a great sound track like Zelda, Skyrim, or Mafia II? I probably never meet you but maybe you're the type of guy who likes great physics much like that in the games Garry's Mod and Portal. If any of these topics suit your needs this game is for you. Unlike most of these games Overcast combines all these into one fantastic game that will keep you playing forever.
9.9/10

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.
