About

Amnesia was a big success as a game of its genre – story driven horror with exploration and environmental puzzles. Overcast tells a story of an old hunter, living in complete solitude in the forest near the remote village. But players will have to deal with the fact, that now there’s a dangerous creature, that’s been haunting every human around, killing every resident of the village and now it’s the hunter’s turn.
The game offers similar mechanics to the source of main inspiration – Amnesia. Players will have to carry a lantern and hunt down several monsters in each of a few in-game chapters. Unlike Amnesia, Overcast has gunplay, map system, and scarce checkpoints, adding the high risk of replaying the chapter from the beginning, if players lost focus and made a mistake of dying too close, to the end of the chapter. The original game soundtrack is using guitar compositions to set the tone and ease the tension after the horror scenes or jump-scares. There are three distinct monster types, and each of them introduced from a first-person perspective of the said monster, adding to the tension. The game gained a surge of popularity, due to the game being played and recommended by several big YouTubers.

Overcast - Walden and the Werewolf reviews and comments

Product received for free I think the Game is great:) There are many Pathogens (including jump Scrabies), and there's a Story. I haven't quite got through the Game yet, but so far I really like it. If you like the Soundtracks, you can even download them for free!

-Get free (Gaming Dragons)-A Greenlight Game that managed to get out on Steam. In the Beginning I thought, ohje, I can't last a Minute. But my Curiosity led me to play it a little longer. After a few Minutes I got a slight Feel for the Game and it went, the Atmosphere highlighted by the Darkness managed to get me into the Game ... Well this Feeling didn't last long;)-bad Graphics (Game of 2014!?-Greenlight)-Good Soundtrack-easy controls-Jumpscares which don't exactly convince-9 Levels I didn't play through all The Levels (1-3), but the Interest after more went running the levels More and more lost. Because in the Beginning it is only necessary to look for Keys and very few Jumpscares. The Full Prize is at least fair and accurately reproduces the Game. Just a cheap Horror Game.

Well, Horror Games are like Sand by the Sea, some are good the others then more of a Joke. Whether Overcast is one of the Winners ior Losers you can learn with me, of course. The Plot of the Game is hardly recognizable from the game itself, the Developers probably knew this themselves and also put it in the Description at Steam ("The game tells the story of Walden, an old hunter who alone lives in the woods. Recently, Walden began to be haunted by a mysterious creature that destroyed the village located near his cabin, killing every person residing on the premises. Now, Walden want "). When we arrived At the game, we have an Oil Lamp in the one Hand (for which it is useful I did not find it undecided, because Light hardly gives it) and a Rifle (at least it looks like one and you can shoot with it). Looking Through different Sections, we have a Map at our disposal and it already was. Unfortunately, the Levels are very desolate and there are hardly any Moments when you get Fear. Only the Jumpscares manage to scare the Player for a little Moment at least. Since this is an indie game I can overlook a lot of things, but at a Price of 10 Euros, there should be more to come than what we get served here. Even at the Sight of the Menu immediately falls on the fact that there is not really much to set there except the Graphic, which is also only "acceptable" at the highest Level. So the Game clearly gets NO BUY recommendation from me, better to save the Money and put it on better http://wurm200.blogspot.de/
