Overwhelm Accessibility Report

Our accessibility experts are yet to assess Overwhelm. If you'd like to suggest accessibility features we should record for Overwhelm, let us know on Twitter or via email.

Overwhelm is a running jumping game set in a pixilated dark bloody world. The twist, apart from the mild-horror theme, is that it's your enemies that power up rather than you. You explore the oppressive caverns of the hive, guided only by a sparse map.
