Introduction



Evening all. I'm Psycho Serum and you may remember me from... uh... you know what, I'm new at this. Let's go with that.

On the table today is Overblood, an interesting and more than a little weird mix of survival horror and adventure game released on the original Playstation after the success of Resident Evil convinced everyone to create a featureless mass of transparent, featherweight rip-offs. However unlike the tedious mass of shit that was expelled alongside it, Overblood is actually pretty good. Well, it's okay. It's unintentionally hilarious and plays like zombies invaded a brewery on bring-your-issues-to-work day, what more could you want? The controls are beyond horrible but you guys don't have to deal with that so uh congratulations on your choices in life. It also doesn't feature pre-rendered environments which I guess was a novel approach to survival horror?

The protagonist of this little trek is one Weinerless Steve Raz Karcy, pictured below, who wakes up in a cryo tube in an underground lab suffering from a bad case of the who the hell am I's. The main objectives of the game are, in order, 1) find out who you are 2) find out where you are 3) find out how you got there 4) leave 5) Retire to France and open a bakery. Standing between us and that goal are a number of spoilers, and also zombies, because back in '97 no one was sick of them yet.



Update schedule will be consistent but mysterious. Commentary will be me and anyone who hits me up on skype (psychoserum) and tells me their favourite song. Videos are on blip and viddler, also below. Don't choke. We can deal with this.


By the way this was a no weapon run, did I forget to mention that before

Pork Lift did this.




God willing, we will never find out why.

Coleman Francis, on the other hand, did this.
