Bench Test: Overture

Overture from Black Shell Games is a top-down, retro-inspired roguelike action title in which you’re basically trying to survive for as long as you can. Along the way, legions of enemies will attack your character. But you can recruit NPCs to help out, as well as pieces of equipment.

If you’re interested in the game, check out the game’s official page on Steam here! There’s also a free demo of the game available! Check out the Bench Test episode about Overture below:

The game also has a Kickstarter that’s ending relatively soon. The development team would like to port the game on more platforms; if you’re interested in checking that out, click here!

Feel free to post your thoughts on the game in the comments section! If you have suggestions for game demos, etc. to check out for future Bench Test episodes, feel free to post those too!
