Hey folks, the time feels about right to introduce Overkill 3. There's been some changes, so to speak...

We're moving on from gallery-shooting to 3rd person cover-based shooting. With interactive cut-scenes/runs between the covers. There will be boss fights, ragdoll-physics, even a bit of level destructions.

The idea is to bring console qualities to mobile gaming. You can check the teaser to see how we're doing so far:



Make sure to visit and subscribe at www.overkill3.com. There's more video footage of the game and we'll have regular updates as well as an early bonus for subscribers. (But surely no more e-mails than once or twice a week towards the launch date.) The website works best on desktops.

The launch is scheduled for October 2014. Overkill 3 will be free to play.

We'll keep you posted here on all major updates. And feel free to ask them questions! We'll do our best to answer them.

Looks really nice. But Free to play... I want to pay for that...and no see ads.
The 1st Overkill was incredible. I didn't try the 2nd. Maybe you can do a premium app this time ?

Thanks GreedPhantom. We've had several very long discussions about going premium.

While we'd love to go that way as it makes many balancing and design issues easier, it's too risky. There is a lot at stake with this game for us.

That said, we don't show ads to those who buy any in-app purchase in Overkills.

Craneballs's F2P system is a lot tamer and more balanced than most other games, so im expecting the same treatment to OKill3.

With the new cover-based system, and what i know Craneballs can do based on OKill 1 and 2, im sure to instabuy whatever permanent purchases are in the game.

Looking forward to playing this!

I'll see then. Maybe i'll remove those ads with in-app purchase. Good luck. You have the best original arcade shooters on iOS. Don't waste it

Looking great!

I do hope this can be played offline. And what are the ios requirements? I'm also hoping it can be played on previous gen devices.
