Team17 has been busy lately. What with just releasing the puzzle platformer Flockers, and working with Self Made Miracle to publish the old school-style platformer Penarium, you’d think they have their hands full. That, however, does not seem to be the case: Team17 just announced that they are partnering with another indie development team, Dlala Studios, to bring their 2D multiplayer brawler, Overruled! to PC gamers. Aj Grand-Scrutton, CEO of Dlala Studios, said “it’s absolutely mind blowing for us to be able to announce a partnership with Team17. They are the perfect partner for Overruled! They understand same room multiplayer better than most and they have a real desire to help us succeed as a studio.” Team17, is also excited to work with Dlala, with Debbie Bestwick, the publishers Managing Director, adding that “Overruled! simply has the potential to be a very successful real-time Worms-like game.”
Overruled! is a 2D multiplayer brawler where the players change the rules as they play, directly influencing the dynamics and direction of combat. Players can choose from a diverse cast of characters, and challenge friends to a battle through multiplayer, both local and online! The goal of the battle is to score the most points by the end of the game. However, the rules are yours to play with, and with over 20 dynamic change ‘em up cards, you’ll never know how the battle will go! You could be playing a Deathmatch now, but one of your rivals might decide to change it to King of the Hill. Or Capture the Flag. The possibilities are endless!
Overruled! is scheduled for a 2014 release on PC, with additional platforms TBA.
