For some time now fans of 6 degree shooters have been closly following Overload. A game with a pedigree Revival Productions brings together the original creators of 90s classic six axis shooter Descent for this all new experience on PC May 31st and Xbox and PS4 in Q3 of 2018. Check out the trailer for some serious 90’s nostalgia. Then head over to Steam or GOG and get your copy for just $34.99.

Revival Productions was founded by Matt Toschlog and Mike Kulas, co-founders of legendary Parallax Software. Since founding Revival has been hard at work on Overload, an FPS that combines the best of classic 6-DOF gameplay found in Descent with the latest in today’s technology to provide intense 3D action on PC, PlayStation4 and Xbox One.

Mike Kulas, co-creator, Revival Productions said of the studio:

“We started Overload as a nostalgic homage to Descent, but it’s really grown into something more. We were able to create a deep story with voice, a new challenge mode and add VR support. And all this is on top of graphics and sound we could only dream about 20 years ago,”

Descent, developed by Parallax Software and published by Interplay in 1995, received critical acclaim for its 3D six-degree-of-freedom gameplay that combined the best of space flight simulation with FPS experience. Overload offers a Descent-like style of play, but brings the labyrinthine environments to new and vibrant life with updated features, deeper gameplay, and dramatically enhanced graphics. Overload is currently available in Early Access on Steam with a user rating of 97%.
