Overload is a 2D space RPG, shooter and sandbox game currently in active development, which will ultimately feature fully online play, multiplayer, sandbox/mod support and even crafting in its final release. It’s designed to have some of the look and feel of an old-school retro space shoot-em-up, but with quite a modern kick. Although the game has not yet been released, our alpha development builds (usually released at least weekly) can be accessed by pre-ordering the game).

Right now, Overload is a fraction of what it ultimately will be. In the game’s current state, you can explore the cosmos, land on planets/moons (on which you can mine resources), avoid solar flares, asteroids, alien species and other such dangers of outer space, as well as dock with motherships and space stations in order to refuel, stock up on supplies, level up and upgrade your ship. The game features some aspects of an RPG even at this very early stage, and also features the foundations for networking (you have the option to enable LAN networking on the settings screen), though this system is very basic, so the game is a long way off from the MMO that we hope it will soon be. The game also features a sandbox mode (though it is relatively unstable), which allows you to customize the cosmos, create your own constellations and terraform planets/moons to your own liking.
