WHAT IS OVERLAND?
Take care of a group of travelers on a post-apocalyptic road-trip across the United States in this turn-based survival game. Fight off scary creatures, rescue stranded survivors, and scavenge for supplies like fuel, first aid kids, and weapons. Decide where to go next: upgrade this wrecked car, or rescue that dog? And don’t forget, there are consequences for every action. Overland is about close calls, dramatic escapes, hard choices, arguing about whether or not that dog gets rescued, and the end of the world. More info is available on 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 patch notes. We also have an in-game bulletin window we can use for urgent updates. 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!
You can 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, in our patch notes, and on the private developer forums.

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!
