Wolfire Games, an independent game studio, had a few small hits, but their spotlight has fallen to the wayside. Why? Over the last nine years they have been developing a game called Overgrowth. Originally announced on September 17, 2008, the game will be leaving early access on October 16th, 2017 according to a developer tweet.
Overgrowth is actually the sequel to the previous Wolfire title, Lugaru. Like before, it is a 3D action game where the player controls an anthropomorphized rabbit named Turner, who resides in a natural pre-industrial world. You encounter and battle against a series of vicious rabbits, dogs, cats, rats, and wolves.
With designer David Rosen, Artist Aubrey Serr, composer Mikko Tarmia, Overgrowth has been popping in and out of relevancy over the last nine years. In November of 2008, the team began running the occasional Alpha test every few months. People who pre-ordered the game could gain access to these tests. In December of 2013, Overgrowth was released on Steam as an early access title. In January of this year, the game was upgraded to Beta, but now it is leaving Early Access as a finished creation.
Whether you want to wait until the official release or get in on Early Access while you still can, Overgrowth can be found on Steam for $29.99. Purchase of the game will also give the buyer a free copy of the other Wolfire title: Receiver.
