What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We've been big fans of early access, and how it allows games to grow, since it's launch. The reason this game is in early access is because it's been silo'd off and built by us as we would want to play it. The cards, game modes, characters, levels are all things we wanted in the game as players. However we're a small group of people and we really want to see what the community as a whole wants to see in this game. We know that by getting the community involved in the evolution of the game it's going to be better than we could do on our own.”

How long will this game be in Early Access?

“The plan is not long. We feel that what we are releasing is a really great game experience already. However we're aware that we've never done a game using online matchmaking before and we want to make sure that we can get that as stable as possible before putting it into full release. We also want to make sure that we get the community involved as much as possible, telling us what they want to see in the forms of cards, game modes, levels and more.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“So the full version is going to contain more game modes, more cards, more characters, more levels and more features and most importantly these are all things which the community is going to help us plan and build out.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“If we were releasing this as a local only multiplayer I would say this game is fully at launch quality, however we're not and we have no real way of testing the online multiplayer until we have more of you playing it. Beta testing went well and so we're hoping that you guys will all have an awesome experience that we can tweak and balance just right.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yes, early adopters will benefit from a cheaper price and, even better, get to play and shape Overruled from day one!”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We want to involve the community as much as possible. This is a game built to get people arguing and in a room together again. We have made the game as we want to play it but now it's time for the community to tell us how they want to play it and what they want to see. We've built a pipeline that allows us to get new characters, cards and game modes in very quickly so we can act on what you guys want to see.”

About the Game

Overruled is a multiplayer brawler like no other - players change the rules as they play, directly influencing the dynamics and direction of combat.

Challenge up to three friends with both local and online multiplayer to a battle – The end result is simple - the person with the most points wins the game! It’s the madness that happens as the clock clicks down that makes Overruled extra special. Use over 25 change ’em-up cards to mess things up and alter the gameplay to best suit your style and annoy your opponents - no game is ever the same!

Don’t incite the enemy as they are the master of your fate! You could be playing Deathmatch now, but one of your rivals might decide to change it to Swag Bag… Or King of the Hil..l. Or Capture the Flag… Or…

Everyone dead? Double the respawn timer. Not doing so well by yourself? Turn on teams. Got the swag bag? Double the points you earn.

An ever-growing diverse cast of madcap characters will keep you company as you and your friends battle for victory and, more importantly, bragging rights!

This isn't any old boring game... This is Overruled!

I have had LOTS of fun playing this online with random players, friends and sometimes evan the developers ;)

This is a very competitive game where you want to play and play until you finally are the best and OVERRULE them all

This is a constantly changing action packed platform fighting game where you play by your rules and screw the day over for everyone else

#ScrewTheSystem by this game for hours of action and fun! 100% worth its money!

I love this game. Since the day I saw it at a games convention I kept going back to this one. It has a really unique art style and gameplay and for early access it has so much content. Since there are cards the game can change at any moment at one point you can be winning then the next minute your coming last. There is also a nice vary in map (with hopefully more to come) and a campain mode which is still being worked on. If you havn't bought it already stop reading the reviews and buy it. :D

Overruled! is a great game to play with your friends, or complete strangers who will most likely become your friends as you beat each other senseless.

This is the perfect game to spend hours playing with your friends/family or get that instant gratification of jumping into a random match and playing 10 minutes of awesomeness. Overruled! games are fast and frantic with the rules always changing keeping players on their toes and giving everyone a chance to be great at something.

I highly recommend this to anyone who wants a game that's as good online as it is playing locally.
