Players will be able to relive their childhood afternoons with Disney and explore these pieces of gaming history with classics including:

  • Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers – This classic lets players team up with a friend in co-op play as they assume the roles of the mischievous Chip and Dale as they take on memorable villain Fat Cat and attempt to solve the mystery of a missing kitten.
  • Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers 2 – Fat Cat has escaped and his plans are even more dastardly this time. The titular heroes and supporting cast Monterey Jack, Gadget, and Zipper must stop Fat Cat from his evil dream of world domination!

03/13/2017 - Overload Released on Steam Early Access
Overload Released on Steam Early Access

Overload, the new six-degree-of-freedom shooter by the creators of Descent, has been released on Steam Early Access.  It is available for Windows, Mac OSX, and Linux.

Developed by the creators of the groundbreaking Descent series, Overload features fast-paced combat action in a fully-3D world.  Face off against menacing robot enemies in the single-player story mode or in the survival Challenge Mode.

The initial Early Access release features four Challenge Mode levels, a sample single-player level, 12 explosive weapons, and ten terrifying robot enemies.  Updated releases will follow every 2-4 weeks.  The full game is scheduled to be completed later this year and will also be available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.  The full game will feature a 15-level single-player story mode, with more weapons, robots, and bosses.  A multiplayer expansion is expected to be released 4-6 months later and will be provided free to all purchasers of the single-player game.

Overload is in development by Revival Productions, which is owned by Mike Kulas and Matt Toschlog, the founders of Descent developer Parallax Software.  “Matt and I have talked for years about doing an updated 6DOF game,” said Mike Kulas. “The pieces fell in place a couple years ago and we started on Overload.”   Matt Toschlog added, “It’s been great working with old friends and colleagues on a project that’s so close to our hearts.”

Overload is being designed by renowned indie developer Luke Schneider, who was the lead level designer on Descent 3 before founding Radiangames (Inferno 2, Super Crossfighter, Slydris).  Said Mr. Schneider, “I got into game development because of Descent, so it’s been awesome to create a new 6DOF game for the 21st century.”

Revival hopes to make an announcement soon on a DRM-free option for early release.
