Mac Stability Fixes

Hey friends!

I've just posted a stability fix for Mac users. While the game ran fine on macOS High Sierra, it was crashing on older versions (e.g. El Capitan and Sierra). This is now fixed.

I'm sorry we didn't find and fix this sooner. If you've been holding out for a Mac fix, thank you for your patience. Enjoy!

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.
