In 'Overloop' you will be cloning yourself and sacrificing them to overcome traps

Posted by , | Views: 2,275

What would happen in a world where you could clone anything? Madness obviously and that's a key theme in Overloop [Steam, Official Site].

In Overloop you will be cloning yourself and then likely sacrificing your clone to overcome traps and it really does look quite good. I haven't seen this type of game mechanic done too often, so hopefully it's as good as the below trailer makes it look.

About the game:

  • Clone yourself and sacrifice your clones to overcome deadly traps
  • Your gun has a low energy? Make a defective clone.
  • Make hundreds of clones, but try to save the original you
  • Help your clones or destroy them to survive on your own

The developer confirmed on the Steam forum that it will release for Linux, it's possible I may test it before release too. No exact release date yet, but I will keep you posted on any changes there.

Sounds a bit like the puzzles in the Swapper? Hopefully it is as well-written and well-designed.

Yes, Swapper was also my first thought - a highly recommendable game. We'll see how well it keeps up with it....
