Press Release: Overlook
Hello everybody, Shaun Meyers here to share a press release for an upcoming party game called Overlook by Gametroleum. The game is currently making its way through kickstarter and it looks to be a pretty interesting couch co-op game. Below is some information about the game and a lwidget to its kickstarter page can be found at the very bottom as well. Some screenshots and a trailer for the game can be found below as well.
Overlook is a game of moves, plays and observation skills. It’s ideal for a small or big group of friends. Put your skills to the test and find out who can outplay the rest! You will often have to keep a cool head and try to mislead the opposite team in order to achieve victory. It’s not an easy task – the clock is ticking and time isn’t always in your favor. You will have to split into two teams choosing between infected robots and overseers. Thanks to game’s flexibility and party gameplay features Overlook supports 2-16 players on a single PC or console (up to 8 gamepads required).
When game starts you see a map full of robots. Your first goal is… to locate yourself! Try not to move too quickly because overseers are watching! When you establish your current position it’s time to infect as many robots as you can. Keep in mind that the game hides the position of infected robots until overseer puts his marker on top of them. This allows you to move freely and spread the infection, if you remain far away from your opponent’s markers. Put your skill to test and try to mislead the opposite team for as long as you can. Don’t get caught red-handed!
Your job is to find players from the other team and remove them from the game. Move your marker along the map and try to locate infected robots. You can examine the status of the robots only by pointing directly at them. Move quickly and try to find out who is spreading the infection! If you find any robot suspicious, mark your target and watch the tongs remove it from the game. Be careful – the number of your hits is limited!
- Multiplayer up to 16 players locally (on same PC)
- Supported wide range of gamepads (Full list)
- One hand required to play the game, consequences:
- Two players can play Overlook using single gamepad
- You can hold drink/snacks in free hand
Gameplay is inspired by Hidden in Plain Sight. With Overlook we want to push Hidden in Plain Sight to the next level with more more modes, tweaks and options.
