Many game developers have created their own version of the apocalypse. Sometimes, the world is filled with zombies and other times there\u2019s just a shortage of food. One of the more interesting takes on this catastrophic event is <i>Overland<\/i>, a turned-based survival game from Finji.\r\n\r\nIt is officially available right now through the Steam, itch, and GOG platforms. If you like these end-of-the-world scenarios, this game has a lot in store for you.\u00a0Your job is to travel across the post-apocalyptic United States with a group of other travelers.\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/m.youtube.com\/watch?v=9rLolRNHbLY\r\n\r\nAlong the way, you\u2019ll run into all sorts of creatures and threats. Every decision you make has a consequence, so a lot of forethought and strategy are involved to be successful in the rugged environments you and your companions come across.\r\n\r\nThere are many important tasks you\u2019ll have to complete to stay safe. For example, to keep your vehicle running, you\u2019ll have to stock up on fuel. Journeying out increases your chances of running into monsters, who will overpower you if you\u2019re not careful. A lot of stealth will be required to move around them. You can also fight them off with weapons, but you\u2019ll have to find them first.\r\n\r\nEvery move you make matters as well. If you take the wrong step and make too much noise, that can draw too much attention. You may be able to pick off a couple of monsters, but the swarm will come. Thus, you must act fast no matter what tasks you\u2019re trying to complete.\r\n\r\nThe game does a great job at making you care for the travelers you come across. They\u2019ll also be put in some pretty precarious situations, in which case you can help them out if you want. There are also a lot of environments you\u2019ll come across, from grasslands to beautiful mountains.\r\n\r\nThe best way to survive in <i>Overland<\/i> is to scavenge for items, including armor, weapons, first-aid kits, and much more. What\u2019s pretty impressive about this game is everything is random \u2014 such as characters and levels. Thus, every journey you make in <i>Overland<\/i> is fresh. The game has great re-playability and there isn\u2019t just one right way to do things. There are multiple approaches that can work depending on the given situation.\r\n\r\nIf you\u2019re up for an epic adventure where your limits will be pushed in beautiful environments, then <i>Overland<\/i> is worth your time. It takes the apocalyptic themes in a fresh direction.
