Beta this year "probably"?

Why is he showing it off when it'll be 2015 before it's released?

How many minutes of fun could you possibly get from it as is?

This must be the world outside of the room in David Lynch's Rabbits

The attack-system is very interesting. Other than that I'm still curious as to what exactly the player is supposed to do and the worlds need some sprucing up. Still, awesome combat potential

Well rabbits aren't my first pick for deadly ninja material, but they SURE LOOK like rabbits, and these days, graphics are about all that matters, right?

Something here looks very familiar to a bunch of rabbits fighting nearly 10 years ago on the Mac.... is it related?

Looks promising. I like what they've done so far with the combat elements. Might keep an eye out for this one .

Considering they are in poland,the development costs are much much smaller than most other western companys, The witcher 2 only cost $10 million to make.

They Need a better background artist, unless that is not the final and the world needs to be more filled. Other than that it looks interesting. I am liking most of the animation, and the rag doll physics adds some humor.

Also the testures need work, more hight rez and more contrast in the colors.

Maybe more fighting styles.

I remember this game, looked kinda interesting but I believe they wanted money for it and it's def not worth it.  More like a interesting game play demo with filler art and animation. Def has potential though, but still looks the same as it did years ago.

I pre-ordered the Alpha back in 2010. It's fun and is mainly a sequel to Lugaru. The story is where Lugaru left off. Lugaru was pretty good, you play as a rabbit named Turner on a quest of revenge. So yeas, this is going to be awesome on the final release. Remember it's still in it's Alpha Stage.

From that video I have no idea what this game is about. The combat looks pretty cool, like it could be a lot of fun. I like the idea of big open worlds to explore and climb around. But unless the environments get a lot more interesting I'm gonna pass. I'm hoping this is just some reeeaaally early testing.

See what the censorship has done? Soon we'll be seeing call of duty featuring squirrels shooting nuts at each other. Happy now?

I am happy to see a site like Gamespot posting something about Overgrowth. I have been following this games development for a long time now, and I know that Wolfire has been working very hard on this game. It really deserves more followers and support. I cannot wait for it to release on Steam even if it takes a few more years.

Crazy semi-weightless parkour movement combined with melee and thai-boxing combat, that's really something.

This has huge potential but it's soooo unpolished right now ! I hope the finished product will be much better ...

@naryanrobinson  

 Yes the game is pretty far from release but there is an active community helping to test this game and it gets updated constantly.

You can currently get lots of fun fromt testing the current build and you can also help find bugs afterall thats the point of alpha/beta testing games..

Why is he showing it off?

Well to get more people interested in the game and to drum up more support for it why else?

@floted Yes, you're probably thinking of Lugaru (which he mentions early in the video). This is a sequel to that game.

@hella_epic If the question were asked of me right now, I would have to say, a guy with a chicken head on his head asking what he is watching, while I am watching a video of what he is asking about...

@wilson336 Its an indie game, been in dev for a long time, its still in alpha, your attempt at looking cool and dismissive about a game you have no clue about, fails hard.

@jyml8582 it's not a censorship, it's the developers choice. On the contrary, games are more brutal now then ever

@Caldrin My point is you can only play the "drum up support" card so many times before people get sick of hearing about it and they associate your game with being pissed off.

I would have thought you would want to show off a more finished product.

I hate everything about Apple, but their marketing tactics are exactly how you sell an idea to someone using hype.

Build the excitement rapidly then tell them they can buy it right now if they want, keep the time delay short.

The further you get from that model, the harder you're making it for yourself.  Admittedly with software the effect isn't as pronounced, but still.  The Bioshock Infinite page dropped to the lowest hits it had ever had a few days after that little video series was released.  They fizzled the excitement out of everyone and now they have to build it back up again.
