'Oblivion Override' Is A Fast-paced Roguelike Side-scrolling Hack & Slash Game Coming To PC And Consoles - Screens & Trailer

Oblivion Override is a 2D side-scrolling action roguelike set in a post-apocalyptic mechanical world with a futuristic cartoon touch.

Oblivion Override is a fast-paced roguelike hack-n-slasher set in a mechanical, robotic world. In the distant future, humanity is a thing of the past. Robots, still bearing the shackles of their creators, have founded a civilization among the ruins.

Play as Crimson, an experimental combat robot, and explore the depths of the Dulce Base on a cryptic mission. The secrets behind the cryptic "Oblivion Code" will be revealed as you venture over and over into the desolate cybernetic space…

Toss enemies into the air with an oversized battle axe and follow up with a devastating uppercut, or slash rogue robots with a laser katana and parry fatal attacks; there are endless approaches to this rhythmic fierce combat.

After each permadeath, players can retrofit their robot to rework their skills, or take some time to speak with an eccentric group of underground allies. Compared with conventional roguelike experiences, skills in Oblivion Override can be unlocked and upgraded instantly at the cost of Nanites via the central cortex—accessible anywhere, anytime. There is rhythm not only in battle, but also in how you align skills into your mechanical DNA and rearrange them at will to perfect your build.

The mystery of the Oblivion Code, as well as the history between mankind and robots, may one day be revealed as players explore further into the Dulce Base.

The English closed beta test application is now open on the official Discord server! Join our secret base underground with a chance of participating in the playtest later.

Key Features:

  • A DANCING, SLASHING FRENZY: Fast-paced side-scrolling action demands you exploit your superior kinetic energy. Execute thrilling multi-directional air dashes, double jumps, and wall runs that complement a variety of cutting-edge weapons, each with its own attack style for fierce balletic combat.
  • FREESTYLE ROBOT RETROFITS: Access your central cortex anywhere, select and rearrange your abilities at will for mechanical gene upgrades. Enjoy the battle pace in how you instantly align a spectrum of skills to construct your own build.
  • COMPANIONS IN DESOLATION: Between runs, take time to speak with your underground allies - an eccentric doctor, a cheerful repair expert, and a wild cowboy…Listen to their stories and learn secrets lost among centuries of turbulence.
  • DECODE THE OBLIVION: Navigate and fight your way into the endless depths of Dulce Base. Unveil the mystery of Eset, investigate the obscure past of mankind, and explore the future of robotic civilization.

Oblivion Override is coming to PC (Steam) and consoles.
