Images and trailer of Overlord

Images and trailer of Overlord

Codemasters released these images today, from their upcoming X360 game Overlord. Included is also a trailer that some of you might have seen earlier this week. I've always liked the art, but the trailer makes the game look very unfinished, thinking of that the release is this summer. Hopefully it will look good (better) by then.

Why did "Evil Lord" slide on the ground instead of walking or running. Weird...but the art direction looks cool...Fable like.

This is probably an early build, but i find the graphics are quite good, the building animation was nice. and the art is very enjoyable. This is on my must buy list since i heard about the gameplay...

That really reminds me of Dungeon Keeper's style. Which is good! :D

He means the cartoony'ness charm of it all and the lush enviroments. Not many games look too much like Fable.

Looks like an interesting game, hopefully the graphics are little more polished, but overall seems like it could be a good, fun game.
If its not too short that is.

Looks like an interesting update of Dungeon Keeper... with more controle over your minions. Not to mention the hot succubi.

About the game

  • KORNdog
    KORNdog for me the more important games in VR are the ones from indie studio's who are conceptually not playing it safe, they're experimental and unique and are offering experiences we wouldn't get otherwise (22 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog but for consumers it's one of the most "standard" experiences in VR in the sense its a normal game we're accustomed to. (24 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @MrWhite: i'd actually consider RE7 to be one of the safer experiences in VR becasue it is a mainstream title. i mean, it's added work from capcoms point of view (25 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @GriftGFX: looks a bit like Audioshield, which is good fun. [url] (1 Hour ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth engines to get good results. graphics hardware would also need more than a few changes. I think this will the biggest hurdle to get devs to support VR (1 Hour ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth and some of them not that far away. problem is more on the software side. eye-tracking with foveated rendering doesn't work well with traditional rasterization, and would require fully rewritten (1 Hour ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @MrWhite: wireless HMD, inside-out tracking. great for convenience. Eye tracking+4K'ish displays, improved clarity without (potentially) killing performance. important for the VR onwards. (1 Hour ago)
