Revival Productions, founded by Matt Toschlog and Mike Kulas, co-founders of legendary Parallax Software and creators of the classic Descent, created Overload as the ultimate zero-G shooter. It gives players three axes of rotation and three axes of movement unlike traditional FPS games. The battle comes from all sides, above, and below, which adds to the game's complexity and depth to control and movement, ultimately transforming the FPS genre into something completely new and challenging.

 

Overload offers a deep single-player campaign, a highly-replayable Challenge Mode with online leaderboards, and individual and team-based online multiplayer modes. This breathtaking game is loaded with labyrinthine environments, pulse-pounding soundtracks, tight zones for combat, and level exploration beyond main objectives. Expanded gameplay features and powerful weapons armed with unique characteristics tighten the game's high-octane action.
