Overpower melds fantasy arena matches with RPG progression

Is your MMO a little on the slow side? Need a jolt of excitement and danger to go with your love of RPG progression? Then you might harken to the call of Overpower, a new fantasy shooter that’s currently running a Kickstarter campaign to raise $22,000.

Overpower describes itself as being inspired by MOBA combat, but really it’s more like fast-paced PvP arena matches with classes, gear, and leveling. It was made by a two-person studio, Hydrant Games, over the past couple of years and currently includes four classes and nine maps. The game has a colorful, cartoony style with classic RPG roles that are instantly identifiable (there are plans for many more as well).

Overpower is currently looking to get on Steam Greenlight so that it can start offering its beta to the community. If all goes well, Overpower will launch in May 2016. You can watch its trailer and get a taste of its combat after the jump.

Since the devs are afoot in here I’d like to make the case for full frontal nudity. Is it absolutely needed? No… but can’t fun things just be fun for funs sake?

The space being taken up by your favorite moba won’t crowded, it’s more of a shooter like Overwatch or Fury.
I don’t even have a decent arena shooter to play because Tribes sucks and Planetside 2 is too big for quik sessions.

Massively doesn’t have corporate masters anymore, they can cover dog shows if they wanted.

No RPG style progression is the entire point to playing mobas for me. HOTS ftw. I get in, get rekt, get out.

Thanks for the reply and there is my first pledge to Kickstarter. $20 is more then fair for a copy of the game and I’m interested to see what you guys come up with.
