Shack PSA: Overlord Playable for Free on GameTap Tomorrow

By Blake Ellison, Oct 22, 2008 4:20pm PDT Attention Shacknews shoppers! We at Shacknews know that you're a cheapskate that you appreciate a good value, and with that in mind we thought we'd direct you over to GameTap, where Overlord (PC, 360, PS3) is free starting tomorrow.

Overlord, a minion-leading action game with a fantasy-world slant, was released in 2007 from Triumph Studios to solid reviews. "You have a busy day: peasants to slaughter, villages to burn, hopes to dash," implores the game's promotional writing. "There's a baby with some candy that needs taking the next town over," it adds.

So, if not for the fact that it's free, go play Overlord for the sake of the candy.

  • We apologize, but the GameTap service currently is available only in the United States and Canada.

    Oops then I guess I misdialed my internettubetruck thingie or something. Because last time I checked I was able to buy stuff from US and CN (Yes I had to pay higher shipment than usual, yes I had customs and extra taxes, but I still did pay for the product. Because unlike others, I am aware of the fact that when I am on the WWW and order stuff, chances are high it does not derive out of the country I live in).

    So, if you are offering stuff on the WWW, then accept the fact that people around the world are using internet connections to buy your stuff. Offering stuff on the web = offering stuff to EVERYONE ON the web. Not just US and CN. There actually are more countries out there on your tube internet you are using to offer your products, give it a try, make $$$ or €€€.

    Congrats you just missed out on a possible customer/subscriber, rock on.
