Taking control of a mysterious figure that has inherited the legacy of the long-dead evil Overlord, the player emerges near death from the ruins of the old Overlord’s Dark Tower. Only the player’s actions will determine if they will rise to become the new all-powerful Overlord; it’s all up to how bad they want to be in order to succeed ... evil or really evil! With a dark sense of humor, the game immerses players in twisted parodies of classic fantasy stories and characters. In a unique twist, players will have control over an army of an army of Minions that will use their unique skills to fetch, fight and die for their new Overlord. Throughout the game players will actively control a horde of these gremlin-like creatures that will follow every bidding no matter how whimsical or life threatening it may be.

Features

  • As the Overlord, players can amass an army of up to 50 minions (with hundreds more in reserve) made up of four different breeds: Brown Minions (The Fighters), Red Minions (The Fire Throwers), Green Minions (The Assassins) and Blue Minions (The Healers)
  • As the Overlord grows more and more powerful and evil, the minions will grow as well, getting a bit more powerful and evil at the same time.
  • The minions can be controlled generally in two different ways: either by moving the horde as a group, or by independently firing them off like some destruction-crazed, reusable missiles.
  • Players will be able to send individual minions to take on smaller jobs, or they can select a posse from their horde to take on bigger tasks.
  • Further to collecting weapons and armor for themselves, the minions will return to the Overlord with gold and other goodies. Unfortunately, minions have their weaknesses too though: the beautiful (yet fatal) succubus can lure them to their deaths, and they’re easily distracted from their missions by music and alcohol (which makes them increasingly more violent and out of control than normal)
