French developer Thomas Casamento has released a trailer for his incoming sci-fi shoot-em-up, Overdriven, set for release on PC and Xbox 360.
The game appears to adopt a fast, frantic pace and an art style sporting all the colour and vibrancy of a 1980s animé. The on-screen action is also backed up by the catchy instrumental melodies composed by Casamento himself, making Overdriven a true one-man project in every sense of the term.
Overdriven will feature local co-operative play for up to four players, with the game’s main campaign taking place across seven stages. Offering variable difficulty settings, unlockable achievements, a handful of punch-packing bosses and 35 collectible Alien Artefacts, the game promises to provide a considerable degree of replay value and a substantial element of challenge for all but the most seasoned of shoot-em-up veterans. We’re also promised the ability to commandeer up to nine different ships, each of which are fully upgradeable and customisable.
While more information on Overdriven is in short supply, we’ll keep you updated as soon as additional details become available.
