Overcrowd is a building/management sim set on the notoriously busy London Underground. Blending real-time strategy elements with a unique commuter flow mechanic, alongside building over multiple floors, staff management, levelling and training, Overcrowd offers a mish-mash of time pressure, strategic thinking and split-second choices.


FEATURES

-Take on the role of tube manager in some of the busiest, filthiest stations in existence. Shift as many commuters as you can, but keep up your station rep without going bust.

-Build your station from scratch. Multiple levels, multiple platforms, multiple entrances and exits.

-Hire and fire your team of Cops, Medics, Litter Pickers and Janitors. Order them to hotspots, and level their skills to suit your play style. Set shifts over a 24 hr day/night cycle, train them up through job specific skill trees and level up their attributes with XP.

-Face the unruly horde. Unique Crowd-Flow Mechanic and Commuter A.I. make for emergent Gameplay that feels different every time.

-Triumph over adversity! Commuter rage. Gastric flu. Rodent infestations. Just a few of the many dynamic events that will make your life – and your commuters’ – a living hell.

Overcrowd update

Overcrowd: A Commute 'Em Up entered Greenlight late last year and zipped through the process in 7 days. Since then I've been working hard and not really had a chance to post many updates. Here's a low down on building.

Building

You can now build your station from scratch. Design the floorspace, build down over multiple levels and place your tunnels, staff rooms, power generators and other items you need for a successful tube station.

RT @miracleofsound: Not happy to see more & more videogames include features that exploit people with tendencies to gamble. It's degrading to the medium.
