Overgrowth takes place in the savage world of Lugaru where rabbits, wolves and other animals are forced to use paws, claws and medieval weaponry to engage each other in battle. Combining 3rd person adventure platforming with intricate melee combat, Overgrowth achieves a unique feel. Overgrowth also benefits from Wolfire's brand new Phoenix Engine which has been built from the ground up to allow the use of cutting edge graphics, animation, and physics. Add to these exciting features Overgrowth’s realistic artificial intelligence and streamlined control system and the result is an astoundingly immersive experience.

Wolfire Games are proud to announce that they recently signed the contracts saying they will get to sell Overgrowth on Steam.
"We are really excited by this news, and it’s awesome to think that Overgrowth is going to be sold next to games like Far Cry 2, Crysis, and GTA IV."

In the graphics department, the terrain shadows have been upgraded to include shadows and ambient occlusion from static objects. All left to do with the static shadows is to enable the static objects themselves to recieve shadows.

On a side note, thanks to ModDB's great staff (and a little push from Jeff), the sound quality of ModDB's audio files have been improved! You can now listen to the main theme in its full glory!

Actually, it will be better than choppy and laggy PC version of GTA4, more exciting that utterly boring FarCry 2 gameplay and much more enjoyable than most Crysis maps for me.
1st game, Lugaru is awesome. Still playing it from time to time over Left4Dead and latest Tomb Raider.

If overgrowth will be exact copy of Lugaru with fancy graphics, then its great. But I believe it will be much better.
(I herd bout multiplayer. Tis tru?)

Too bad that Steam don't want to work with my credit card. Still forced to wait for retails D:
I hope this game will have one.

Man that song is killer. That track was so hot I cranked her up, disturbed my dogs, and had discs falling off shelves.

Brutal masterpiece!

This game should be decent if it is going on Steam. So guys, keep your standards HIGH and scrutinize everything.
