Finji has done well in introducing a wide variety of choices in strategy games, and of course some cute cuddly companions.

Overland isn’t that one friend on a road trip who has packed emergency supplies, and has the itinerary worked out to the hour.

Overland's cleverly concise spin on turn-based strategy, along with its great sense of style, make for a rewarding, high-stakes game that's easy to lose yourself in.

Overland is a strategy horror roguelike that's as difficult as it is rewarding. Its storytelling and presentation rivals the AAA sphere and raises the bar for what indie horror games can be.

Overland's road trip is harsh and unforgiving, as a roguelike should be, but sometimes it rubs too much salt in the wound.

Because of the unforgiving difficulty of some levels, Overland might not bring a pleasant experience for all the players. On the other hand, its creative art style, unique atmosphere, and exciting gameplay all cause you not to be able to take your hands off of the game; Even when finishing the journey of game characters seems impossible.

Overland is a good roguelike turn-based strategy, despite some defects and deficiencies it can satisfy those looking for a challenging and potentially endless game.

The post-apocalypse schtick was worn out long ago, so any game using it as a thematic backdrop is always going to have an uphill struggle, but Overland attempts to set itself apart with its diorama-style maps and its McCarthy-esque road trip. While it lacks the more focused combat and systems of the very similar Into the Breach, there's a lot to like about its bleak combination of fellowship and sacrifice. But with a procedural generation setup that doesn't always play in its favour and a shallow inventory, its take on Armageddon can be more frustrating than fun.

Overland is a strange mix of stellar art direction, smart and simple design matched with often arbitrary difficulty.

Generally, I enjoy turn-based strategy games and I had high expectations for what Overland had to offer. I have no problem with the game trying to move me out of my comfort zone and consider strategies not regularly employed in other titles, but it just wasn't enough to keep my interest. I think there's likely a group of people that will appreciate the simplified strategy and minimalistic take, but since I'm not one of them, they can feel free to abandon me like the poor soul in the tutorial.

Overland is a fun and challenging strategy game. Although the procedural generation can at some points be unfair, I mostly enjoyed the challenge of stepping into a new area full of creepy creatures. The lack of story and clunky controls did hurt the overall experience, but the inclusion of achievements, time limits and the option to restart a level were nice additions to add even more challenge or take some away. It’s not for everyone, but Overland appeals to a group of players that are looking for a real challenge.
