About This Game

Overfall is a fantasy role-playing game of rough diplomacy and tough action. Explore, negotiate, and fight your way across the high seas!

You will lead two heroes on a journey across the high seas in search of their lost king. You will encounter people of all breeds and all creeds; ally with them or crush them without mercy. You will face many dangers; survive them and you may unlock new characters, weapons and skills. In a world where death is permanent, you must return to the beginning and make a fresh start. The heroes you choose, the weapons you unlock and a world that is randomized mean that no two adventures will ever be the same.

  • A huge, dynamic world to explore, ruled by a number of races in constant conflict - it’s up to you to help or betray them
  • Challenging and addictive turn-based combat - careful strategy and cunning skill combinations are the key to victory against your foes!
  • Permanent hero death, procedural world generation, and high replay inspired by classic roguelikes
  • Interactive story encounters where the choices you make and the allies you recruit ensure no two journeys are quite the same
  • Unlock new classes, weapons, trinkets and skills as you progress in the game
  • Beautiful hand-drawn art of of 9 player characters, 36 combat companions, 80+ enemies, 80+ NPCs, and 100+ locations

The premise to this game is generally pretty interesting. The description I was given was like a fantasy FTL. The description isn't necessarily wrong it just isn't as enjoyable. Combat plays a giant role in this game which isn't inherently good or bad. What makes it not good is the fact that combat is almost always a tedious chore, you don't particularly get more powerful as you play through the game which makes sense in regards to this game. The issue with that is generally fights continue to always take the same amount of time to finish throughout the course of the game. I dread combat, there isn't much to it, it's a very one dimensional strategy-esque style of combat. For the most part any time you can have an encounter and avoid combat you receive just as good of a reward without the game taking your personal time and ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ on it with the drawn out encounters your playthroughs with be filled to the brim with.

Random story bits/events that you discover going from island to island are pretty fun, except it doesn't take very long at all to see the repetition in these events. It makes continuous playthroughs feel predictable and scripted which ruins the random nature of the game.

Abilities gained from different weapons and actual new ability unlocks don't differ much from eachother which makes progression and unlocks in the game seem unrewarding. That may be strictly due to the combat being such a drag.

I can't recommend this game, despite its glowing reviews it doesn't really respect your time or intend to entertain you, and if its doing neither then what is the point?

I have to say this game is a little gem. If you like tactical combat, RPG elements and Rogue-like this is a game for you.

Pros:
-very addictive gameplay
-tactical combat
-lots of unlockables - weapons, character classes, companions. There is simply tons of complexity under the hood
-charming world
-great story telling
-really great 2d graphics
-excellent replay value
-reasonable price

Cons:
-time stealer - seriously couldn't find anything really wrong with the game, maybe I'm a bit biased ;p

It's a great game :)

Many situations with multiple outcomes. That's about how best I could describe this. While the narrative is nowhere close to the Banner Saga, it definitely has the same feel on a somewhat larger scale. Travelling from island to island and ship to ship, after a few playthroughs I've found myself in a few repeat situations, same orc needs same help. However, when I chose the same conversation choice, the orc attacked me, instead of agreeing with me. Was a nice surprise.

I can wholeheartedly recommend this to anyone who loves strategy.

There's even a touch of Darkest Dungeon with all the status effects, both negative and positive, that your characters can get.

This is a cautious recommendation here.

True to its word there are a loads of things to unlock such as player classes, weapons, trinkets and skills.

The combat is challenging enough to test your skills however it can become a bit stressful when taking on one too many especially in the earlier stages.

One of the greatest downfalls for this game is that the stories repeat even after your first playthrough which makes replaying the game more and more difficult over time. However the nice things is that if you take a different classes from the beginning it may yield different speech scenarios.

I'm not extremely sold on sailing from one identical looking island to the next being chased by enemy ships that are very difficult to get away from.

The most important aspect of the game however is that despite some of its flaws; you can't help but give it a go once again to try out your shiny new class or companion or skill you've just unlocked for yourself.

Overfall is a really enjoyable turn based stratey game with a unique art style, and great visuals. Play it when you have a break, or waste a whole night on it. Some parts of the game take a while to be understood - especially the character and skills progession etc. but the gameplay doesn't suffer as a result, and eventually it'll all start to gell together. Lots of characters, fantasy races, quests, and several endings means great replayability. I mainly play the game with my kids for a couple of hours at a time, and we all have a ball, and with it's low price tag what's not to like about this little gem. Highly recommended.

This must be one of the greatest games so far this year. With a very unique progression system, good writing and excellent learing curve I just keep coming back. Trying to figure out the best party/skill/weapon setup. The dark souls/FTL crossover (thats not really an accurate description but close enough) and generic turnbased combat really works. The "noooo... I was so close and my party so powerful - how could I possibly loose?!?!" and the joy of figuring out a really powerful combo are great as well as the tounge in cheek writing.. "He's become a peyon" as well as trying to remeber which quests lead to riches and which ones to certain doom is really great. Highly recommended.

Now, back to figuring out the clues to unlock my next hero combination!

A Hidden gem

Personally I don't really do game reviews but I thought I'd put in my 2cents as this game is fantastic.

Overfall is a game that I have sunk alot of time into, I was hooked from the get go and have only enjoyed it more as I have unlocked all the different things the game has to offer.

The game has an initial learning curve where alot of people struggle for some reason, at some point you realize the game isn't as hard as you had it made out to be (That's when you turn up the difficulty!).

PROS
+ High replay value (Massive variation in story and party setup)
+ 150 or so unlocks encouraging you to try different character combinations
+ Horizontal character progression
+ Turn based battles (Great if you need to step away from the computer)
+ Fantastic unique art style that lends itself well to the game
+ A living unique world made up of a heap of islands
+ A fantastic story builder tool to craft your own adventures
+ Enjoyable soundtrack
+ Fantastic community if you get stuck
+ Very active devs
+ Simple to learn, hard to master
+ You can play with just the mouse if you wish

CONS
- Punishing AI if you are new to the genre
- Steep initial learning curve
- Not really a con.... you will die, alot, its a roguelike what do you expect

I'm sure I could have added more to this list but didn't want to get carried away!

Bottom line:
Buy it before the dev team realize its worth more!

Overfall:
~~~~~~~

After successfully uniting all human tribes and witnessing a glorious victory over the Orcish Emperor, the immortal king of the realm - the one and only “Everking” – summoned two heroes to his citadel! The Everking gave our two incredible heroes a mission to retrieve the “Disc Artefact” from another world, through a particular portal. Day by day, our two heroes venture deep into this strange world and finally obtain the artefact. Upon using the portal to come back and deliver the artefact to the “Everking”, they find out that their beloved king has been missing and the most astonishing aspect of this saga is the fact that they have been gone for over three centuries. . .

Overfall is an RPG/Roguelike/Strategy with turn-based combat game where you take control of two heroes who are searching for their lost king. At the start of the game, you will be choosing what classes your two heroes will be; there are nine classes to choose from but upon your first game, you will automatically be a fighter and a cleric. The other classes will be unlocked throughout the game. Each character has five weapons to choose from (one available and four to unlock) with three special moves, eight skills sets to choose from (again three available and five to unlock) and twenty-five trinklets (abilities, if you like) of which five are granted to choose from on your first game. Then when you are ready, just go through the portal and you will be back in the realm of Dys!

In Dys you will meet your descendant; do not be surprised by his old age when he greets you. After a quick chat and an exchange of family tales (nah . . . just kidding), you will jump on a boat and start exploring the world of Dys. There are plenty of islands to visit and other ships to accost. In the realm, you will notice different types of islands, how they look on the map. That is because you have six races who co-habit this world: Goblins, Dwarves, Elves, Orcs, Hollow and Forsaken. At the start of your game, your reputation will be neutral with all of them. As you go through your journey, you might help the goblins and receive a point towards a better reputation with them, but decrease your reputation points towards other races who are not on friendly terms with the goblins because of that. You can find quests on Island and ships too, and as you successfully achieve your missions, you will receive recognition within the world, which will enable you to unlock a spot to grow your party, and you will be able to recruit another character to join you.

Each time you achieve a positive outcome in a quest you will be rewarded with Frags (the currency), Runes, Dust and/or Food. With frags you can upgrade weapons at bazaars, trade for food with merchants or trade for runes. Runes are sacred stones and are very important in Overfall. When you find and visit an Altar, you can use these stones to either resurrect a fallen character or give protection to several of them, if you carry more than one stone with you. You will also need runes to hire a companion. Dust is a magical ingredient that can be used to learn skills and give a short boost for your ship. As for food, well you have to feed your heroes, my friends, or they will die!

Your heroes can die in combat too; either on a boat or on land. The combat phase is simple and very good. It is a turn based setup but each of your heroes will have three phases per turn - movement, ability and attack. Just a quick word of advice for you - try to get one of your characters to be someone who can heal in battle, or your game will be fairly short. I do like the characters in this game; they have a slightly larger head than their body. I know it is a little thing but it makes it fun!

Graphically, the game looks good. The soundtrack vaguely reminds me of a well-known TV show which is also set in a fantasy world. Good and simple to follow combat system. This game comes with a story builder so you can create your own story for all of us to enjoy!

Positives:
~~~~~~~

- 100’s of locations to visits
- 9 classes to choose from
- Plenty of abilities and characters to unlock
- Easy to use turn-based combat
- Interesting story
- Good replay-ability / Story builder included
- Achievements and Trading cards

Negatives:
~~~~~~~~

- No tutorial (not necessary to have one but it would be nice)

Overfall is a brilliantly combination of RPG/ Strategy/Roguelike with endless replay-ability! A must have!

9/10

Very nice rogue-like. Keeps you playing, learning each time you die. Careful management of resources and escalating combat makes the procedurally-generated world a blast to keep coming back to. There's a lot of combos to try out, from classes to weapons and skills. The pacing is good too. In the short time that I've played, I've already unlocked a couple of classes, a couple of skills and a pair of weapons.

If you are a fan of rogue-like strategies, you should seriously consider this one. It's got it's hooks in me this early... and to top it all off: there's Steam Workshop support!

Overfall is a combination of real time and turn based strategy with a couple of roguelite elements thrown inbetween. You travel the sea, visit various islands and fight a different aray of enemies (which costist mostly of humanoids of different classes), all because space vikings want to f*** up everything you know... or knew?

The story starts when the king decides he wants some bling and sents you to an alternate dimension in order to retrieve an ancient disc. This does not provide a challenge for a couple of great adventurers as yourself and you quickly return, only to discover 300 years have passed since you embarked. Not only that, the space vikings that reside in the other dimension aren't pleased with your little trip and start sending ship after ship after ship of warriors, which basicly means you're screwed... but not just yet.

Combat is focused mostly on different buffs and debuffs. It is played out in three phases. First comes the movement phase, then you can use different non-combat abilities and in the end, you can use an aray of combat skills. You have to plan ahead and know your characters, which gives the combat a nice, tactical feel to it.

The thing that I loved the most is the amount of option you get in most conversations. There are multiple things you can say and if you aren't carefull, you can quickly find yourself in battle with the previously friendly residents. Different classes sometimes get aditional options, which is also a wonderfull edition. It allows the game for stay fresh despite the fact conversations eventualy start to repeat themselves. But hey, it's impossible to have an infinite amount of new stuff to do.

The aestetic is certainly interesting and unique with a lot of lively colours. The soundtrack however, isn't anything special, at least I didn't think much of it. It does a decent job, however I didn't even remember it after not playing for a couple of days.

To sum it up: Overfall is a game which is definately worth a look. If you don't believe me, take a look at the steam rating. A must buy for everyone who likes the idea of roguelite games and one of the best games I've played this year.

Final rating: 8.6/10

Incredibly complex tactical rpg with a huge amount of buffs and debuffs across a hex grid battleground. Great sense of humour and unique storytelling for a roguelike, though repetitive at times.
