After playing a bit of Overload yesterday, I felt the itch to get spaced out some more. I’ve successfully made it to a moonbase on Phoebe, and my current objective is to rescue workers turned hostages in stasis, and eventually a boss battle with a dick ship (not to be confused with whatever the fuck Jeff Bezos blasted off in recently). Everything from the level design, to the music and pickups brings back many memories of the old Descent games. If AMID EVIL is a love letter to games like Hexen and Heretic, then Overload is easily the modern Descent game. I almost livestreamed it tonight, but wasn’t sure how my stomach would hold up given all the aerial flips you can make in that game. Fortunately I didn’t get sea sick, and I think that clears me to stream it next time.
I’ve also successfully remapped the controller buttons in game, made it more comfortable. Next time I play it on the TV I’ll be ready. 😛
