Overcrowd: A Commute ‘Em Up is an upcoming indie game which is on Steam now and set for release very soon this year.
Overcrowd is a tactical management sim set in the London Underground. Blending base building with pausable real-time strategy, Overcrowd offers a unique mix of spatial puzzling, strategic thinking and split-second choices.
I’m excited about Overcrowd: A Commute ‘Em Up for several reasons. First and foremost, I’ve always been really into games like RollerCoaster Tycoon and SimCity. Frankly, there isn’t a game in the current marketplace that scratches that itch.
Looking at all the preview information for Overcrowd: A Commute ‘Em Up suggests that this game might be in a great position to satisfy that craving for a management sim. It takes the right approach to management (early previews look both serious and challenging), but also combines that with a very entertaining and excellent art style.
Just watch the trailer and you can see there is also an element of humor built into the game, which incorporates sick commuters to fighting.
SquarePlay games might be a small indie studio, but they have a lot of passion driving their quest to bring a quality product to the market. I encourage anyone who likes management-style games like SimCity and RollerCoaster Tycoon to give this game a try when it comes out.
I know I will.
