It’s time for the first Overruled! update of 2015. Our bodies are ready. Your bodies are ready. Let’s do this.

New Cards
  • Lend a Hand
    This card is all about sharing. Force your opponent to help you out by swapping your cards for theirs! How lovely of them. Best played when you have no cards and everyone else has lots – share the wealth right?! If more than 2 players are in the match – everyone swaps!

  • Super Overrule
    What’s better than Overruled? SUPER OVERRULE. Why? Because it’s super, duh.

    When played, this card not only cancels the card that your opponent is playing – it also takes that card from them and adds it to your deck. Opponent trying to disable melee when you're on fire? Super Overrule it, steal their card, set them on fire then disable melee! Delicious justice. Best followed up with a swift kick to the teeth for added insult.

Single Player
Two new single player characters now have their full set of challenges available! Were Wanda and Anti Hero now have 6 challenges each, so that's more scores for you to beat. Anti Hero probably has a slightly harder set of challenges than Were Wanda, so get ready to test yourself.

Brawlers; there’s no better place for a brawl than a back-alley. Anti-Hero knows this well, and his level is now available to play in multiplayer!

Multiplayer Playlists
Our shiny new playlist system has had a lot of love, so we’ve given it a lot of love too. 2 new playlists for you to try!

  • Crazy Assassins
    Like living life on the edge? With 1 second ranged cooldowns? 1 second respawns? And 1 health? YOU DO? This one is for you, ya loonatic.

  • What The?!?
    A playlist designed to make you more confused and horrified than a piglet at a tiger parade. The game mode changes every 5 seconds. Can you keep up? Can you score points? Can we weep softly into your hands until the game ends? This one is for you.

That's it for this update then guys - let us know what you think, Steam forums are always open for feedback, and you can always find us on our blog and twitter too.

We'll see you in game and on the forums!
Overruled! - Mike_Team17


Just a wee update today to sort out some leaderboard strangeness that you've highlighted in the forum, and to tweak the difficulty of Indie's campaign after our numbers monkeys saw that players were finding it too tricky. Steam should update you to Build #445678 automatically.

But wait! There's awesome things happening. Join us live on Twitch tonight for another opportunity to beat our faces in - play with the devs is back!

Where: http://twitch.tv/dlalastudios

When: 7PM GMT 18th November 2014 (2PM EST)

How: Boot up the live stream, add Socrates Dementia as a friend on Steam and join public games from 7PM GMT tonight (18th November)

We'll see you there!

Greetings, Brawlers!

A new update for Overruled! is now available, packing EVEN MORE punches. Read on for the juicy details:

New Features

- A new change 'em up has been added! The latest card will pick one of your opponents cards and play it for you. It's basic thievery, but we've decided to take a positive spin on things and call it the "Helpful" card.

- A whole new single player campaign has been added! "Sasol's Pillage" will take you on an ♥♥♥-kicking piratey adventure, all voiced by the excellent Miss Mousie Mouse.

- Single player has been given leaderboards too! See how your score fares against other brawlers across campaigns and individual levels.

- 5 new single player achievements have been added, it's up to you to find them!

Pure content in the latest update, we hope you like it. As with every Early Access update, be sure to tell us about any problems you encounter so that we can get them fixed!

Much love,

Overruled! - Mike_Team17


It's time for another Overruled! update - and this one is packing some sweet new punches.

Invasion Mode
Invasion is the first gametype we’ve released since early access. It’s the perfect balance of attack and defend. If you want to go all out attack, you can. Happy to sit back and claim a little corner of the map as yours? That’s fine too. So… What is invasion?

When invasion ticks around, three neutral bases spawn on the map. If you run and stand in a base, it’ll slowly turn your colour, and you’ll have claimed it after a few seconds. Once it’s yours – and you’ll know when it is – it’ll earn you points every second!

You can claim as many bases as you want – as long as other players let you. If you hold two bases, you’ll get 2 times the current points value. All three bases and you’ll be surging to the lead in no time.

But what makes it so difficult? Well, if any other player happens to stand in your base, it’ll get turned back to neutral… and then they can claim it for themselves. So it’s up to you – grab hold of one base and defend it from every one else? Or go all out offensive and claim as many as you can? Or maybe you’re in the lead already, and you just want to run around annoying everyone else by stopping them from getting bases. It’s up to you.

Pre-Game Options


Before a game starts, you’ve now got a whole bunch of options as what the game is that you’re going to be playing. These options include things like what game types are included, how long a game type is, what cards you’ll get, how much health you’ve got… and it makes each game feel completely different. The host can set this before you start playing.

We're not going to go into too much detail here, but you should tell us about the crazy game types you've set up in the comments below! You can find our faves here.

Full Change Log

For the curious, here's a list of all the changes in this week's update:

FEATURE: New game mode "Invasion"
