"Everything takes an action, everything involves some small measure of sacrifice, and thus everything is stressful. And it works so well."

WHAT IS OVERLAND?
A squad-based survival strategy game with procedurally generated levels set in post-apocalyptic North America. Every random level is full of close calls and hard choices, even though the interface is approachable and easy to learn. Manage allies, fuel supplies, medkits and weapons by making the right choices on the procedural roadmaps. A road trip straight into the heart of the cataclysmic event that changed the Earth forever. More info is available on the main site and the press kit.
CAN I STREAM IT?
Yes, of course! There is no NDA or limitations to stream OVERLAND FIRST ACCESS. Just remember that FIRST ACCESS is still an early version of OVERLAND, so on our behalf, please give viewers a head’s up that this is not the game’s final form. If you can, we would love it if you encouraged your viewers to sign up for our mailing list or even just check our public Trello board. Thanks!
CAN I HAVE A THREE KEYS FOR FREE TODAY? THANKS!!
no. haha sorry that sounds mean I guess but like no. i still like you though!
What you CAN do is sign up for the mailing list if you want first dibs on the next round of First Access keys. You can also sign up here if you want access to press review keys when they become available, but there's no ETA on those. And as usual if you have any questions or concerns don't hesitate to contact us directly by email, we're hella responsive!
WHAT IS FIRST ACCESS?
First Access is our paid alpha program, which includes exclusive features like a private developer forum, access to constant updates, and the chance to help us make the end of the world even more interesting with your feedback. All made possible by itch.io’s new Refinery toolset!
SO. THE GAME IS BASICALLY FINISHED THEN?
No. No! Are you even reading these
OK BUT WHEN WILL-
It’s gonna be a while - we have a lot of post-apocalyptic America to make and destroy still. But there’s more info about our current progress and future plans in the roadmap above, on our public Trello board, and on the private developer forums.
I WOULD LIKE IT BEFORE THEN. TAKE MY MONEY!
Technically that is not a question. Regardless, since Overland is still very incomplete, we are building our audience a little bit at a time by selling the game in limited quantities. Whenever we reach interesting internal milestones, we’ll do our best to make more keys available to more players. We’ll notify existing players first, then hit up our mailing list for the extras, so if you're jazzed about the game in its current state sign up here! When we’re ready, we’ll also make the game more widely available on other platforms.
Why is Overland only available on itch.io?
While we are planning on adding support for many more platforms and services in the future, right now itch.io is the only online store that can handle all of our First Access needs, including automated update deployment, limiting the number of keys that are available, related community features, and the APIs to support and share those things online and in-game. They've been a huge help in getting this program underway! WE LOVE ITCH.IO.
WAIT WHAT THE HECK IS ITCH.IO
itch.io is an open marketplace for independent digital creators with a focus on independent video games. It’s a platform that enables anyone to sell the content they've created. As a seller we're in charge of how it’s done: we set the price, we run sales, and we design our pages. It’s never necessary to get votes, likes, or follows to get our content approved, and we can make changes to how we distribute our work as frequently as we like. itch.io is also a collection of some of the most unique, interesting, and independent creations you'll find on the web. They're not your typical digital storefront!
