I absolutely love watching Overload [Steam, Official Site] progress, as each fresh update makes the game even more fun. Let's take a look at what's new this time.

Two major new additions for the 0.8 update are the new challenge map "Backfire" and a new cloaked Phantom robot. Together, they're a pretty awesome boost for an already extremely fun game. The stealthy robot certainly does mix things up a bit!

Here's me trying to take on the new level on a higher difficulty level:

They've also done a little spit and polish, with you being able to delete saved games, the ability to load saves from previous versions, the loading message will vary depending on the level and game mode, ambient volume control and more little bits like that.

One of the best Early Access games around by far, they really know what they're doing. I've had absolutely tons of fun with Overload, far more than any other like it as it just feels so extremely polished. It looks good too and performs really smoothly for an epic gameplay experience.

Descent (original) is in development. I asked the developers if there will be a Linux version, and they say yes.

Progress in here: https://www.brightlocker.com/games/descent-underground

Also, there is another game called Sublevel Zero Redux, with Linux support. PC Gamer compared it with Descent.

Finally, there is a demo of Overload: http://store.steampowered.com/app/450220/Overload_Playable_Teaser_20/

Descent Underground should already support Linux, it was on Steam, but it seems they removed it?

Sublevel Zero Redux isn't bad, but I much prefer Overload as it feels better all around.

Overload is the original Descent developers from Parallax. Descent: Underground is some guys who paid to license the rights to Descent from Interplay. Overload's gameplay is closer to Descent 1/2/3.
