Looks cool, I like the style, it's distinctive enough.

Since looking at the screenshots and the name Overlord i have a feeling this game will be some what like Dungeon Keeper 2 which was a quality title in its time for pc must keep my eye on this one.

Some games you can look at a screen and see right away that it will be fun.

Can't wait to see those goblins in action, pissing all over the place!

Wow thats awesome graphics..

Are these in game or concept ??.... Oo

I assume it's an RPG of some sort.. looks great.

Looks like a next gen World or Warcraft..

The beauty and quality of this game makes my eyes a little glassy. It looks like Fable on steroids. I know Fable's not that old, but the nostalgia is definetly here.

Trust you to see that ... Oo

Interesting.... why must fantasy styles always be assumed that it's gonna be an RPG though?? lol

Actually I hope the gameplay will be as unique as it looks. To someone who said its reminiscent of Dungeon Keeper, I really hope it will be similar! Their previous title Age of Wonders was a strategy after all wasn't it? And judging from the 1st and 3rd screen shot it appears as though you play the leader of some evil minions, facing battle with the good guys. I'm keeping an eye on this one during E3.

It's an action/adventure where you can control groups of imps and use them to do task/fight or just kill as you wish.

Fable meet oddworld i guess.

mm,you could even say that Z64 was that...
Instead of action-rpg as many call it.
So...

Love this. This must be developed in England right? British humour at its best

what is the goblin pissing out of....I mean i think it would be slightly wrong to have "hung" goblins running around. But I consider it more wrong pissing out of nothing....
Commented on 2006-05-02 17:39:26
yes codemasters are british but im pretty sure it will be an rpg but not similar to fable tho it ''Shouts" out dungeon keeper2 to me with the goblins collecting the gold and resources cant wait hehe.

Why is that wrong? It's a normal act. And it's not even a human doing it, it's a mythical creature lol. Is pissing offensive to some people?
Commented on 2006-05-02 17:51:28
if it is then i worry for them when they go out and drink at a pub or nightclub lmao!

There's some info on a dutch xboxsite. Since I'm Dutch and I'm pretty proud something good is finally coming from a Dutch developer (killzone wasn't that good) I'll share the info...

You play a character who's almost dead. When you're finally awake, you find yourself sitting in a tower of an evil undead emperor.
Everybody thinks you are the undead emperor so you'll have to prove that you are much worse than the guy who's in control now.
To fulfill you're queste, a horde of minions are at you're disposal. With these minions you can terrorize the country showing you're the most badass. This all comes with a bit of humour.

Most newly announced games look amazing, in time, we'll see if they're a good representation of the final game.

About the game


What's up?
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite After just viewing the trailer, yeah, I see what Melmoth was on about. Stick a pair of red dungarees and a cap on her, and a mustache. (1 Hour ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Irony is they are basing the film off of a reboot where you don't actually raid many tombs. The female rambo shooty shooty run and jump shit translates well, though. (1 Hour ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @Melmoth: Well, that's practically what Lara is now from the recent games. Anyway, most common traits of reboots in Hollywood boils down everything you knew about the original into a simplified trope (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog we have a spam bot Danie75 (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i just think it's an awful idea to base a movie on a game that had a terrible story, a terrible script and characters devoid of personality...including the protagonist. why would someone do that. lol (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog but at least she isn't doing that super exaggerated breathy "acting" luddington does in the games (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog the woman just looks so wooden as well. which is probably why she did well playing a robot in ex machina lol. (2 Hours ago)
