Team17 is proud to announce the Early Access release of Overruled! for PC, Mac and Linux on Steam. Developed by Essex-based Dlala Studios, Overruled! is a 2D multiplayer arena-based brawler like no other – players change the rules as they play, directly influencing the dynamics and direction of combat.
“There is great synergy between Worms and Overruled! The multiplayer action married to the ability to alter the game’s parameters on the fly brings out the very best and worst in everyone, often with hilarious consequences.” commented Debbie Bestwick, Team17’s Managing Director.
Aj Grand-Scrutton CEO and Craig Thomas CCO at Dlala Studios added, ”Making Overruled! has been the most exciting and terrifying time of our lives but that doesn’t compare to how excited we are about getting the community’s input on the game. We want to see people jumping in the discussion boards and telling us what characters, levels, game modes, change’em-ups and levels they want to see in game. Also to have our release come the same week that Overruled! is on show at Gamescom on Microsoft’s ID@Xbox stand is mental. We never thought we’d be in this position this soon and we are beyond grateful to all the support we’re getting and all the support we will be getting from you guys!”
Overruled! lets players choose from a diverse cast of characters and challenge their friends to a battle with both local and online multiplayer! In order to win all you have to do is score the most points by the end of the game. But the rules are yours to play with and with over 25 dynamic change ’em-up cards, you’ll never know how the battle will go!
Overruled! is out now on PC, Mac and Linux via Steam Early Access and will be coming to Xbox One late 2014 (if you’re at Gamescom visit the ID@Xbox booth in Hall 6 to get first hands-on play).
