Action platformer Overwhelm, which first launched for PC in June 2018, is coming to Switch via the Nintendo eShop on April 4 with an exclusive co-op mode, publisher Alliance and developer Ruari O’Sullivan announced.
Here is an overview of the game, via Alliance:
Overwhelm is a suffocating action platformer where enemies get power ups and you don’t. It is coming to Nintendo Switch on April 4 featuring an exclusive co-op mode. Play through the whole game locally with a friend, reviving each other when you go down. Defeating each of the five bosses will give the hive’s creatures additional abilities, so choose wisely: which one will you take on first?
- Bosses Give Enemies Power-Ups: As you defeat each of the five unique bosses, their abilities get distributed to the enemies of the world with escalating difficulty.
- Tactile, Tense Combat: Combat is crunchy and fast. One hit and you die. Three deaths and the run is over. Defeat bosses in different orders to optimize your playthrough.
- Intense Soundtrack and Soundscape: The sparse but powerful soundscape keeps you focused and scared. The soundtrack provides occasional ominous synths to compliment intense boss fights and big moments.
