Overgrowth’s final update feels like the end of an era

September 17th, 2008, nearly a full decade ago. That's when Wolfire Games first announced anthropomorphic animal brawler Overgrowth, and now it's due to receive its final update - version 1.3. While Wolfire would go on to be better known for their Humble Bundles (eventually selling the Humble brand to IGN), I feel that Overgrowth and its decade of development is an important part of independent…

Bunny boxer Overgrowth is out now after 9 years

I already told you this, but you weren’t listening. Rabbit kung fu game Overgrowth [official site] is out now for all your animal-punching pleasure. It features the following: Rats who stab A drop-kicking rabbit Wolves with no sense of clemency or grace Come and see what it looks like below, in smashing GIF form.

Bunny brawler Overgrowth finally coming out next week

The rabbit roughhousing of Overgrowth [official site] is finally complete, say developers Wolfire, and a release date is set for Monday next week. The physics-heavy martial arts adventure has been playable for years and years and year, of course, but by giving it a solid date of October 16, Wolfire are saying: right, that’s your lot. Almost a decade of development is quite enough.So, if…

Overgrowth’s sixth and final beta adds the story mode

It's hard to write about Overgrowth [official site] without feeling a little old - this is early access before that was even a thing. According to my email archives, I was first informed of Wolfire Games' ninja rabbit simulator entering development in 2008, and I put down a preorder on it back in 2009. It feels very strange to say this, but as of October…

Bunny brawler Overgrowth adds Lugaru’s campaign

The kung fu rabbits of Overgrowth [official site] have been around in a playable form since I was a small and ancient protozoa, so I won’t accept the game’s sudden switch from “alpha” to “beta” as news. But I will take notice when told that the story campaign of its predecessor, Lugaru, has been adapted into the fisticuffs framework of the sequel, meaning there should…

Overgrowth Leaps On To Steam Early Access, Slices Price

Its rabbit characters are not the interesting thing about this game. Overgrowth is interesting because this indie project from a small team has physics-driven kung-fu, destructive and satisfying swordfighting, environment-hopping wall-running, stealth, RPG mechanics, local multiplayer, and a level editor that allows you to construct your own scenarios. The game has been in paid-alpha since 2008, a time when "paid-alpha" wasn't really a thing we…

Ruff: Overgrowth Puts On Some Weight, Adds Dogs

Overgrowth is weird. Shamefully, I always forget about it until I watch a video of it, at which point I remark, aloud, to no one in particular/confused housemates/non-sword-wielding rabbits, "Wow, those are probably the best sword-wielding rabbits I've ever seen in a game." Because, I mean, look at them. Those ears are floppy in a way that can only be described as lush. And now…

What’s Up Doc? – Overgrowth Looking Quite Nice

Ours is a world of strife and chaos. Everything fights: people, seahorses, parasites, plants, and - yes - even adorable fuzzy-wuzzy widdle bunnies. Overgrowth doesn't avert its gaze from this awful truth. It depicts the gruesome realities of lagomortal kombat with oftentimes stomach-lurching precision, putting hare-splitting blades, black-eye-sprouting bunnicuffs, and yes - even that most fearsome and pointlessly brutal of bunny-fu techniques - slow-mo on…
