Make the most of a terrible situation. See things no one was meant to see. Survive - barely.
Overland is squad-based survival strategy game with procedurally generated levels set in post-apocalyptic North America. Every random level is full of close calls and hard choices, even though the interface is approachable and easy to learn. Manage fuel supplies, weapons, and other items by making the right choices on the procedural roadmaps. Overland is a road trip straight into the heart of the cataclysmic event that changed the Earth forever.
In Overland, players guide an evolving cast of survivors on a road trip through a ruined continent. To survive the trip, players scavenge for fuel, weapons, and other supplies to help them keep moving and protect themselves from the strange, sound-sensitive creatures roaming the remains of North America.
Encounters in Overland are randomly generated. No two situations are ever the same. Players need to keep an eye out for dangerous surprises, unexpected outcomes, and hidden rewards. Should you save up fuel for that long detour up ahead? You can find solid upgrades there, but stockpiling gasoline is a risky maneuver. What do you do when there's only one seat left in the vehicle? Do you take a healthy passenger with no particularly useful profession? Or do you try to save the wounded specialist?
