Preview: Overlord part 2

Better late than never I guess! Here comes finally the second part of Overlord's preview, this time showing more fighting and the first power of the Overlord.
Update: It looks like a lot of people didn't understand how the game controls, so I've recorded a video of the tutorial explaining in details how everything works.

I demand more, I want to see the Mistress(es) and what you can do with them.

Dare I say this, but this game is like so Xbox1ish. I just said what you all were already thinking...

wasn't what I was thinking muha.
Looks oké. The gameplay looks to be a bit dull, but this is just the beginning of the game. They sure took a good look at Fable though. The voices and animations of the NPC remind me a lot of Fable.

^^ I wouldn't say thats too surprising considering the publisher is an english company. That and english voices are bound to sound english. I'm looking forward to this one mainly because Triumph Studios seem to be trying something different.

does have that bold theme like fable but its mechanics are alot like that or Dungeon keeper in some respects , Even tho i love amazin graphics which blow me away its the same as having a beauitful girlfriend who if she has nothing upstairs is just plain boring see what i mean lol

I agree with the other poster, art style and graphics look a lot like Fable.

The Publisher is Codemasters and the developer is Triumph studios which is Dutch. I should know, seeing that I am Dutch and it's hard to mix up the three developers that are based in the Netherlands.

We sure love are neighbouring countries though, so isn't that much of a suprise that the voices are English. That, and the medievils didnt take place in say America.

Hm, blim, this might be a request in a inapropriate section, but could you make some more forza footage; some Mugello and Nurburging with nice european cars driving for supremacy :)

Commented on 2007-06-05 15:03:18
Yeah. дooks cool. i think i gonna get this 1.
Commented on 2007-06-05 15:16:26
I wonder if the whole game is going to be like that - 1 path, 1 solution.
Commented on 2007-06-05 15:40:21
I wasn't very interested in this game until now. The gameplay seems very interesting and it's good to see something new in the RPG scene..
Commented on 2007-06-05 20:28:49
Looks damn good, want to try it n see how the game play feels...
Commented on 2007-06-05 23:05:32
That's awesome, thanks for the controls preview Blim, it really does explain a lot. You know, this game looks just fun enough to buy. Now just need to get some tidbits and details about what the story is about and I think that'll do it..
Commented on 2007-06-06 02:01:24
Thanks for the controls video Blim! :)
Commented on 2007-06-06 03:18:17

Guerilla Games is the most important one of course. Despite the lies about the Killzone CGI trailer, I'm still curious about that game. There's also a Dutch studio doing models for third parties who have done some work for Gears of War.

I must say this Overlord game looks interesting. I think I'll get it! oh and thanks for the videos! -I was pondering on how you'd control this!
