Overlordess is an unusual mod pitching one team against a powerful individual. The latter's strength lies in the ability to lay traps for any unsuspecting enemy as well as to wipe out all who oppose her in direct combat. The modification is based around two stage gameplay – stage one being a trap-evasion challenge and stage two a direct confrontation with the omnipotent player.

Gust takes place in a major European city in a horror-style environments. As the level of civil disorder had slowly been rising and, as the presence of armed opposition became untolerable, significant government forces secluded several districts and took the rebels under siege. After several weeks the streets are now desolated and a small rebel task force, few survivors of the firefights that have taken place, prepares to punch through the cordon, however their attempt attracts unwanted attention. There's still a spark of hope, as the word is that there might be a transport ready to evacuate any alive resistance fighters. It's now or never, although it's not going to be easy..

In addition, Feared has uploaded the first part of a "Making of video", you can watch it below:

The rebels have gathered intelligence and pinpointed Overlordess' location to an old factory currently being transformed into a fully-fledged bunker. However, to get to their target they need to fight their way through industrial facilities as well as highly dangerous construction equipment such as a crane. Their journey will not be an easy one, but the goal is worth it.
