Sound Options

Hey everyone!

Thanks for all of your feedback about the "Last Chance" sound. Stressful experiences are a big part of OVERWHELM, but this aspect clearly wasn't working for everyone.

I've added a setting to the Sound menu that changes the volume of the "Last Chance" sound. Hop in there and you can customise it to a level that feels good to you (or turn it off entirely, if you like!).

OVERWHELM's a tough game, and it's a stressful game, but even so... we want all of you to have fun. So if there's something stopping you from having fun - besides all the bugs ripping your lungs out - let us know. We'll fix what we can.

Happy hunting! xx

Launch Week Discount, Thank You & What's Next

Hey everyone,

We're so excited to bring you OVERWHELM and launch Untitled Publisher. Please enjoy a 20% launch week discount to celebrate!

For all of you already immersed in the action-horror-world of OVERWHELM, thanks so much for the amazing response. If we were going to use a pun about being overwhelmed, we would use it right here.

But we won't do that. What we are going to do is keep reading your reviews, discussions and listening to your feedback.

We'll have more news about what's to come soon, but the short of it is that we have more plans to update and expand the world and features of OVERWHELM.

Until then.

About This Game

    OVERWHELM is an action horror-world platformer where enemies power-up and you don’t.
  • Horror-world Exploration: Explore the oppressive caverns of the hive, guided only by a sparse map. Enemies can appear from anywhere at any time.
  • Bosses Give Enemies Power-Ups: As you defeat each of the five unique bosses, their abilities get distributed to the enemies of the world with escalating difficulty.
  • Tactile, Tense Combat: Combat is crunchy and fast. One hit and you die. Three deaths and the run is over. Defeat bosses in different orders to optimize your playthrough.
  • Intense Soundtrack & Soundscape: The sparse but powerful soundscape keeps you focused and scared. The soundtrack provides occasional ominous synths to compliment intense boss fights and big moments.
