Anime-Inspired VR Adventure Game Overturn Has An Exciting New Trailer

Posted by October 17, 2017 Comment

While FPS VR games are a dime-a-dozen, those that are able to instill a sense of narrative direction and urgency are still pretty darn rare and there are even fewer that are developed by just one person. Despite these odds, today Studio HG and YJM Games have successfully launched Overturn, a VR adventure FPS with puzzle elements, on Steam, playable on both Vive and Rift systems.
Overturn, the first-person shooter action-puzzle adventure game developed by Studio HG and published by YJM Games, is now available on Steam at a special launch discount of $26.99 for a limited time. Overturn will also launch on the Oculus store soon after launch. As survivors of a dangerous genetic experimentation in a secret lab deep underground, Overturn is a story-driven action title that challenges players to escape from a terrifying new world. Combined with the immense psychic powers of a new companion, MAGI, Overturn presents an imaginative adventure with puzzle elements and core gunplay and melee action that will keep players engaged throughout an extensive singleplayer campaign, with a multiplayer mode being added soon after launch. A fellow survivor of the laboratory’s dangerous genetic experiments, MAGI can use her powers to assist the player’s fight against their captors – but can they trust her? No, probably not. But that’s what game summaries are for, asking questions with obvious answers.
In just 40 seconds you can experience the action and thrill in Overturn by watching the all-new launch trailer below.

OVERTURN offers players a wide arsenal of weapons and other techniques to conquer incoming foes. Get ready to master the use of beam rifles, energy swords, grenades, mechanical robots and even bare fists to destroy any active threats to your freedom! Beyond this impressive array of weapons, players will need to stay nimble with quick reactions and focus to dodge incoming projectiles and return fire at the enemy. In addition to facing enemies within the single player campaign, OVERTURN will release in-depth PVP multiplayer functionality in the coming weeks in the form of a free update for all players.

Even with the massive firepower afforded to the player, some additional help will come from MAGI, a fellow surviving lab experiment. Imbued with psychic powers, MAGI can help defend you from enemies as well as go on the offensive and destroy any foes. With Infinite Charge, Grenade, Battle MAGI, Time Slow, Shield and HP boosts, MAGI is an all-powerful ally to have – but where does her allegiance lie?

OVERTURN includes features to support content creation, including built-in Twitch chat support as well as third-person camera systems that can be manipulated to provide an alternate perspective on the action.
