Overload – A Descent Into FPS Mayhem Begins in May

Revival Productions have announced that Overload, a six-degree-of-freedom tunnel shooter from the creators of 90s classic “Descent” is coming to PC on May 31, 2018, for 34.99. Descent was originally developed by Parallax Software and published by Interplay in 1995, which received critical acclaim for the title, which combined the best of the space-flight sim with the FPS experience.

“We started Overload as a nostalgic homage to Descent, but it’s really grown into something more. We were able to create a deep story with voice, a new challenge mode and add VR support. And all this is on top of graphics and sound we could only dream about 20 years ago,” said Mike Kulas, co-creator, Revival Productions.  Matt Toschlog added, “It’s been a blast creating this game, and we especially value the relationships we’ve formed with our Kickstarter backers and Early Access players.”
