Overlord Video OVERLOAD

There are a lot of intriguing Action/Adventure games on consoles, but only one that allows you to be evil

I’ve recently been hearing a lot about Overlord, a twisted action/adventure game coming soon for Xbox 360 and PC. After happening upon a couple trailers for it, I’m a bit intrigued.

The graphics and art style remind me of Fable in a big way – and that says a lot, as I highly enjoyed Fable – but you also have control over “Minions”, which may take the gameplay quite a bit further. Have a look at the following trailers, and let me know what you think:

Consider me interested! Hopefully Codemasters will release a demo over Xbox Live before Overlord ships next month, because I’d like to give this one a try.
