Controlling a mysterious figure that has inherited the legacy of the evil; long-dead Overlord; the player emerges; near death; from the ruins of the old Overlord’s Dark Tower. Only the player’s actions will determine if they will rise to become the new all-powerful Overlord; it’s all down to how much of a bad ass they want to be in order to succeedâ€¦ evil or really evil! Played out with plenty of black humour and dark irony the game will immerse players in twisted parodies of classic fantasy scenarios and characters.
- Overlord’s key innovation is the introduction of an array of impish creatures â€“ the Minions. They believe you are the old Overlord reborn and will use their unique skills to fetch fight and die for you.
- Throughout the game players will actively control a horde of these gremlin-like critters and they’ll follow your every instruction no matter how despotic or for the Minions life threatening it is.
