Just prior to the closing of Steam Greenlight in June, developer Studio HG and publisher YJM Games succeeded in getting enough votes to get their action-puzzle adventure title OVERTURN Greenlit by the community. Today the studio’s have announced that OVERTURN will now be released in October for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.
OVERTURN tells the tale of a daring escape of two subjects from a deadly laboratory that engaged in live genetic experimentation, resulting in psychic power. With the help of MAGI, a fellow lab experiment, players need quick reactions to dodge incoming projectiles and mastery of the in-game arsenal which includes beam rifles, energy swords, grenades, mechanical robots and bare fists. While MAGI offers offensive powerups like Infinite Charge, Grenade, and Battle MAGI, and defensive abilities such as Time Slow, Shield, and HP.
The initial launch will only feature the single-player campaign to begin with. Studio HG plans on adding a multiplayer element sometime after.
For video creators OVERTURN also includes features to support content creation, including built-in Twitch chat support as well as third-person camera systems that can be manipulated to provide an alternate perspective on the action.
