Overlive is a highly rated game that plays like a choose your path interactive story, with heavy exploration and decision making elements, Role Playing Game (RPG) character development, and real-time combat. Check out the gameplay features below!

* NOTE: This is the FULL version of Overlive. All content and features are available and there are no time limits or ads. Enjoy! *


[FEATURES SUMMARY]

+ Survive the zombie apocalypse and escape your zombie infested city before time runs out! Overlive's core gameplay is exploring the city and uncovering the story in the style of a "choose your path" interactive story gamebook. Survive by exploring 18 locations and finding one of 8 possible endings!

+ There are 1000s of unique and professionally written events to encounter and even more tough decisions to make! All decisions have consequence; small decisions early in the game can have profound effects later! Meet other survivors and help or exploit them. Plenty of moral decisions will question how far you would go to survive and affect your final score... can you survive without losing yourself?

+ Grow your character as you see fit! Train 9 different skills (melee, firearms, explosives, grappling, stealth, lockpicking, engineering, perception, computers) to overcome obstacles during exploration. Specialize or generalize, fight or bypass bosses, and use your skills to achieve the best ending! Be a stealthy computer hacker or a guns blazing pyromaniac you decide!

+ You have a limited amount of time to escape your city before the nuclear plant goes into meltdown and destroys what remains of the city (including you)! Each day choose between exploring the city, training your skills, or resting. Learn from your mistakes and improve your survivability and score in subsequent playthroughs - this is a game that is meant to be replayed!

+ Defeat zombies, bosses, and other threats in real-time combat with hand to hand weapons, firearms, and explosives! Enemies come in all sizes and can come at you fast, attack from a range, tank you, or mob you in numbers! Change up your tactics to maximize your combat effectiveness and minimize the time you spend resting at home!

+ Memorable and fearsome bosses will stand in your way to freedom! But don't worry if combat isn't your thing - you can weaken or bypass them entirely using non-combat skills!

+ Find dozens of items to boost your abilities including new weapons and survival gear! Even your home can be upgraded!

+ Achieve the best possible score grade based on your actions, accomplishments, and moral conduct! Everything you do to survive is recorded and is factored into a detailed final score report and grade! 24 diverse achievements are available to be unlocked in the Game Center!

+ This FULL version is 100% free of ads and IAP - you get everything unlocked upfront! It has features not found in the FREE version, including the ability to accelerate the early game (for repeat playthroughs) and choice of difficulty.

I have an idea in my head of how this game will play, which is probably growing into an unfair expectation but the promise of no timers, IAPs or restrictions really has me quite excited. I love apocalyptic survival games, turn-based combat systems and morality systems so this could be a sleeper hit.

Waiting on picking up a new iTunes card after work today so I'll probably pick it up later.

Sounds fantastic, especially the no IAP/ads/etc, etc part
(Kind of sad that that has become a bullet point that devs like to add as a feature)

I enjoy zombie games as much as the next guy, but choices, RPG elements, turn based combat seems to promise an experience that's more than just mindless horde massacres

Is this an FPS?

Doesn't look like it from the screenshots and description. Seems like you choose locations on a map, deal with Choose Your Adventure style vignettes, build your character, and combat looks like it's turned based

Edit: actually might not be turned based, just misread Pete's post. That would be pretty nice though

Looks decent, but i'll wait for imps on this one. Is it in gamebook style but with less narratives? Not sure how that will go.

Yeah, it looks like one of those games that could go either way. Having to make a lot of assumptions based on the screenshots on how the game plays - I'm just expecting turn-based combat due to the enemy health bars but that's a very vague guess.

Can say that I'll definitely get this if no one else does, but that will be in about eight hours if people don't mind waiting.

This looks interesting... I may have to bite. Looks like turned based RPG in a zombie apocalypse, which is right up my alley! Decembers make me broke...
