This evening I had the pleasure of trying out Overture, a new 16-bit rogue-light by Black Shell Media that entered full-release on Steam at the end of January. Overture was created with the help of a successful Kickstarter campaign, but considering the game launched on Steam before the campaign even finished, the Kickstarter seemed more to be a reach for publicity and pre-orders than an actual bid for funding. But no matter, the game is fun romp for the masochists out there who don’t mind getting bulldozed by a minotaur the minute they leave the gate. Check out my tryout below.
Overture is simple, but for only $4.99 I give this a recommendation for fans of rogue-likes. You can find its Steam page here
