Overgrowth Announced

Independent developer Wolfire Games of Lugaru fame today announced Overgrowth, an upcoming 3D action-adventure effort in development for Windows-based PCs, Macintosh, and Linux. The title is set in a world filled with man-like rabbits and wolves armed with medieval weaponry. Further details are forthcoming, but the premise sounds pretty rad to say the least.

Additionally, Wolfire said it is considering a console release but has yet to find a publisher. Hit the jump for the full press release.


Wolfire Games, the company behind Black Shades and Lugaru has just announced its latest project: Overgrowth. Formerly David Rosen’s one-man operation, Wolfire Games has recently expanded to a team of five full-time developers. It appears that Overgrowth will pick up where Lugaru left off: in a world of anthropomorphic rabbits and wolves who use paws, claws and medieval weaponry to engage each other in battle. Aside from an innovative site (http://wolfire.com/overgrowth) and some preliminary concept art, details are still scarce. Wolfire did mention that it plans to make Overgrowth available on PC, Mac and Linux just as it has done with its previous titles. However, no release date has been declared. One thing is certain though, based on the quality of Lugaru, people have high expectations of the Wolfire team.

I hope it's good. We really need more games featuring anthro animals... and I am not saying this cause I'm a furry fan. =)

I'm not, but this looks pretty awesome.

I'm actually really looking forward to how this turns out....the industry has been churning out lots of "meh" shooters and it's games like this that keep the field interesting.

Doesn't it look like there are concrete ruins and such? Maybe it takes place in mankind's future where animals are now the sentient beings?
