World Calamity: Overdrive is an Action/Action RPG Game, published by In-Verse.
The game's line is based in this: "We're our very own prisoner in a body full of questions and answers."
A Fighting arcade game is also in the works with the name: Distortion Overdrive and is a 3D fighting resembling and remembering Ehrgeiz: God Bless the Ring for Arcade and PS1. And it will be included in the Wii U Version with all the unlockable content unlocked, and for the portables, there's "Sticker Puzzle", a tetris/Puyo Puyo-like game.
Basic Premise and Concept Edit
The thing has a style of rock and heavy metal, but also has some canon immigrants while not canon (Because there are some discrepancies such as Blake's birthday and Rainer's age and Ike's year of birth as such.). Simple is to survive over time throughout the game in another world. It's an Action-RPG, meaning that there will be hack and slash/beat 'em up/shooting elements by turns. Like Fire Emblem if a party members dies, dies (Applicable in Calamity Mode, there's a Hero Mode which allies can be revived), but plays a bad character ending at first and the soul being sent in a book (Otoko [Titania's book] or Onna [Beck's book]). (The Avatar Can't die, otherwise is a game over.)
The Scenario is divided by Character, that you must interacted, will become your Ace during a sized portion of the game.
It's also an open world game with Hub-worlds, in Hero mode can be access many times as you wish, but in Calamity Mode, you can access only a few times with a time limit.
There's a mechanic who makes the thing also unique, there's a "Megalo Power", the Megalo power will turn you into a some sort of a band member thing and using a "Overkill", could eliminate at least 75-95% of the mooks nearby your party, The Overkill mechanic also can be used as a Action Duo, and a Power Trio.
The game is set in the present year.
Game Modes Edit
The difficulties are: Easy-Normal-Hard.
- Allies can be revived the moment if they're dead (they don't return until next chapter), but the consequence is that the Avatar will have only half or his/her powers until certain moments and its life stats being cut in half.
- Infinite time to access in all open world or hub world zones.
- Unlimited access to the Mystery Room.
- Unlike Calamity Mode, every Zone Boss will gain to the player a rare accessory.
- Allies die, and their soul sent to the book Otoko or Onna.
- Limited time in Hub worlds. (At least 4-5mins. long)
- Avatar-kun/-chan is the only one who can access the Mystery Room.
- The final bosses of Each Character will gain to the player an ultra rare accessory.
