RTS Overcrowd: A Commute 'Em Up Travels to Steam Greenlight

Welcome to commuting hell.

Admit it--commuting in a large city sucks. Driving is impossible, trains are overcrowded with people you'd never want to encounter, and you are subjected to a plethora of illnesses and undesirable happenstances. By the time you're home, you want to kick back, relax, and lose yourself to the world of gaming. But what if the only game available is one based on your horrible traverse to the concrete jungle? Would it save your sanity or force you to flip a table?

That is what defines the upcoming indie cutesy, retro-looking title Overcrowd. Brought to you by Squareplay Games, Overcrowd: A Commute 'Em Up throws a unique spin on RTS by introducing the torturous element of the everyday commute. In this title, you are shoved into the shoes of a manger during a 24-hour tube strike. You must ensure the constant flow of commuting while managing your resources of cops, medics, litter pickers, and janitors. What comes with the responsibility is the risk of facing a living hell stuffed with understandable commuter rage, the gastric flu, infectious rodents, and of course, Tube strikes.

You will be facing plenty of pressure to strategically think and make split second choices. Think Command and Conquer blended with Lemmings in the Theme Hospital universe.

Currently, Overcrowd is on Steam Greenlight, though Squareplay Games intends to produce a demo and a Kickstarter campaign in the near future. According to the gameplay video below, Overcrowd is scheduled for a 2016 release. Does commuting sound like fun yet?

If you're fond of the game, be sure to give it the thumbs up of awesome on Steam Greenlight!
