By your command

Admit it... you play video games because you have some control issues. Why else would you regularly pick up a controller and manipulate little people on your television? Well, gamers' secret desires are being heartily acknowledged with the upcoming release of Overlord, a game in which you command an army of minions to accomplish your every whim.

As the spawn of the former Overlord of the land, you begin the game at the bottom of the heap with only a handful of demonic underlings to control. As you progress, you have to decide whether or not you will become a ruthless despot or a rampaging evil dictator... so the only real question is how cruel you want your reign to be. Your army of gremlins will carry out your vile wishes with wicked glee as you subjugate the unwitting masses. Mixing a twisted blend of satire and power fantasy, Overlord expects to take over store shelves sometime in the summer of 2007.
