It seems that more and more games opt for Steam’s early access program in order to be self-funded by their fans. The next one in the long list of games supporting this Early Access program is Wolfire Games’ Overgrowth. Overgrowth has been in development for a couple of years and is still far from being completed. However, those who decide to purchase it will get access to its alpha version that feels more like a sandbox of technology and martial arts than a story-driven action-adventure.
As David Rosen, the game’s main programmer, wrote on the game’s Steam page:
“If you support us now, you will be able to try out the combat mechanics in the arena prototype, duel your friends on the same machine by hooking up two controllers, and use the integrated level editor to explore and modify a number of included environments. You will be able to try out the features in the new alpha videos as soon as they are released.”
Overgrowth is priced at 27,99€ but comes with a 17% discount until January 2nd.
