Virtual Programming has announced the release date of Overlord (tomorrow!) with a new teaser video. Will be interesting to see how it performs.

I'm not sure if this means both Overlord and Overlord 2 which VP is working on, as it only mentions Overlord, but they could mean both titles. It's a very cheap game, at only £3.99 on Steam right now with a very positive reception.

Since it's a rather old game, I'm sure VP's porting method is well suited to it.

Prepare to be tempted, mesmerized and thrilled, become the Overlord, how corrupt you become depends on how you handle any given situation. Your actions impact the game world. With incredible power at your disposal and a team of evil minded minions to do your evil bidding, how will you resist the temptation to be incredibly despotic? THINK EVIL, BREED EVIL, CONTROL ALL!

Wait what ! Fantastic
I have been waiting for this and so have my kids.

I know what we shall be doing this weekend with my steamlink.

If only Lego games were ported I would look into a steambox

Overlord is the best rated one of the two as well - and I've never played this one (only the sequel) so this'll be a purchase for sure!

As strange as it might sound, the one game I miss the most since giving Windows the old heave-ho last year is LEGO The Lord of the Rings.

Uhm... so unknown game i have never heard off gets a linux release. But users bitching abou Witcher 1 for linux are ignored. Even if VP alredy have Witcher1 eOn port on Mac.. Maybe if they would cooperate with CDR and include also community mods like Rise of the White Wolf or HD texturen mod, it would sell 10 times more than some unknown Overlord 1+2.. but okay. Let´s not be greatefull..

And what about Aspyr or Feral porting their best Mac titles to linux? Titles like Deus Ex:HRDC, Rage, Broderlands 1 or Batman games? Maybe Bioshock 1+2 or KOTOR1? Again nothing.. Not to mention a fact that Mac is a joke platform to port games for. How many mac users actually have top end mac with decent mobile GPU? Less than all linux users.. but let´s not sound frustrating or pissed.. No way. I am sure Aspyr/Feral know better. Of course also VP knows what we don´t know..

I think the same. Witcher 1 would be genial on Linux. I don't have idea if porting games to mac are similar to porting to Linux, but probably the work is half done.


I would like to encourage developers to bring mac ports to Linux .There are a lot of good games in the mac catalog that linux users would like to play/buy .

What do you think, VirtualPrograming/Aspyr/Feral?

The Overlord games are not exactly "unknown".
