Our friends over at Virtual Programming are hard at work on porting Overlord, Overlord: Raising Hell and Overlord II to Linux. They left a funny little message for us on SteamDB too.


I do love developers with a sense of humour, and VP have certainly worked on theirs. Their ports have come a long way too, and I look forward to more from them.

For those that don't know, the Overlord titles are a mix of a few different genre's in a fantasy setting. I very much look forward to being the evil overlord in a game as you don't get that opportunity often. Article taken from

I do have all of them in my library (from Codemasters bundle I guess). I will give them a try, and if they turn out to be good and keep me in front of pc for more than 10 hours, then I guess I will provide some money to VP, just to support them for the new port and will give the key to someone in need (maybe my girlfriend, maybe someone from this page, let's see if this happens).

Been curious about these for a while. They look like they have the charm of Fable; one of my favorite games, particularly because of the charm. I could never bring myself to play through fable 1 or 2 as a bad guy though.

Sad that I finished the first on on windows earlier - thus no longer have the save games for the expansion/ol2 (I don't think steam sync is implemented).
Though, I'll surely give this one a go again - sweet!

I never heard of these games. Still good to see more titles on the penguin, though.

Overlord 2 were really great fun on the ps3. It's got a solid metascore too so this is a safe purchase of you like what you see in a trailer or two.
