With the premise of being a sleeping evil being, you find a world where evil isn't much of a hassle. You're woken to fix that and bring balance to the world, an almost noble cause.
This week's Humble savings are brought to you by Codemasters. Up for grabs for over $1 is the original Overlord and expansion, Operation Flashpoint Red River and Dragon Rising, and Rise of the Argonauts.
Pay $6 or more and you also get DiRT Showdown and DiRT 3, along with Overlord II. It should be noted that Codemasters is working to remove GFWL from DiRT 3.
Overlord creator Triumph Studios, who recently announced Age of Wonders 3, has teased that 'something in the vein' of Overlord is being worked on at the Dutch developer. Could it be Overlord 3?
Codemasters own the IP, and so the studio can't say if it is or not, but "there's definitely stuff" going on that would "very much appeal" to Overlord minions. There's no "full-scale production" yet.
A collection of tweets, Facebook posts and job ads suggests that turn-based strategy developer Triumph Studios may well have Age of Wonders 3 in the works. "Won't be Overlord".
Triumph also created the Overlord franchise where we play an evil ruler with minions. Composer Michiel van den Bos promises "some interesting news soon" from the studio.
