Everything is dark and red and THE HIVE IS EVOLVING in OVERWHELM, a new [anti-]Metroidvania available exclusively on Nintendo Switch.

Unlike other Metroidvanias, where progression invariably makes you stronger and grants you new abilities, in OVERWHELM things go quite the other way — things start out easy, and get progressively more difficult every time you gather a crystal. The enemies get stronger and gain new abilities.

At the same time, you can conquer bosses in any order, meaning you have some control over how and when your enemies evolve.

OVERWHELM is available now on the Nintendo eShop for a cool $9.99.
