  • Earth Overclocked

Earth Overclocked is a twin-stick shooter with rogue-like elements, set in a distorted version of our world where trees are evil, snowmen have lasers, and monsters run amok. After a scientist's time machine explodes while traveling to the past, he finds himself trapped in this hostile, parallel dimension. Now he must reassemble the time machine and escape before this warped reality collapses in on itself. Fortunately, a variety of bizarre and powerful weapons are scattered throughout the land to aid him in his quest. Arm the Scientist with shotguns, boomerangs, cannons, magical swords, and even cheese to help him survive!

With only 20 minutes to explore, blast monsters, and rebuild his time machine; surviving Earth Overclocked isn't going to be easy.

In true rogue-like fashion death is permanent, but procedurally generated environments combined with permanently unlockable weapons, game modes, and abilities makes each playthrough feel like fresh experience.

I am afraid to announce that, after the Linux port and the AI update, Earth Overclocked will not be receiving future major content patches. This means that the Trials expansion has been canceled. I apologies for this bad news. There are two major reasons why this decision has been made, both listed below. 1. Both the software used to make the game and the engine itself are unreliable. Since this was the first really big project that the team has made, a lot of mistakes were made during the devel...

As stated in an earlier news post, before we work on the free Trials Expansion for Earth Overclocked, we want to improve the game. Chronicle Bench has decided to make a pre-expansion update that will focus on enhancing enemy AI. The goal is to ensure that every enemy and boss in the game feel very different from each other. We feel that this improvement will be the most beneficial one for the upcoming expansion. So be prepared for this update! You may have to change your game plan a bit with the...

EDIT: We just released a version of the game that was compiled under an older version of Steam SDK in order to fix the "game not starting" issue on the latest version of the Steam client. The game will run on the latest version of Steam now. There is a small bug involving the game crashing when you try to exit normally, and we'll look into it later. All we know is that this bug is Steam related, and it's pretty harmless. --------------------- Apparently a Steam update was released that completel...

A small update we released a few days ago was apparently deleting people's saves. Whoever has played the game since the update on January 22 has lost their save files. This is a deep apologies from the team. We just released a January 26 update for Windows that mimics the January 7th update. The Mac version was rolled back to the January 7th update directly. WE ARE ALSO OFFERING TO CREATE SAVES BASED ON EARNED ACHIEVEMENTS FOR THOSE AFFECTED! FRIEND ME ON STEAM AND I WILL SEND YOU RECOVERED SAVE...
