You’re supposed to remain indifferent from individuals within the apocalypse as a result of caring about different people will get in the way in which of looking for primary. Overland, the strategic survival game about road-tripping West throughout an alien infestation, makes it robust to cease caring about them as a result of each (canine included) has a randomly chosen title and backstory. Apparently I’ll be getting emotionally hooked up to my automobiles quickly too as a result of Overland needs to call them as effectively.

The official Overland account on Twitter posted today asking gamers to submit names of their very own automobiles for an opportunity that they’ll seem within the game. Overland already has lots of randomised content material so asking for a pool of automotive names ought to most likely come as no shock. Each random survivor that you simply meet in your highway journey has a reputation and brief description as do all of the canine. You may even submit your Twitch username to have Overland use names of individuals in your chat room as survivors when you’d like.

This begs the query, “if cars have names do they also have stories?” After all, Overland’s people have bizarre histories like “Was married for three days. Appreciates the company.” Maybe automobiles could have tales like “Used to be an Uber. Has been barfed in five times.”

The publish doesn’t particularly element how the names will probably be used but it surely appears honest to imagine {that a} automotive’s title will show whereas chosen just like survivors. I have already got such bother deciding which automotive to take with me once I come throughout a brand new one in Overland. Oftentimes the sedan I got here in is breaking down however the two-seater truck accessible for the taking means I’ll have to depart behind a survivor that I preferred. Now I’ll be forsaking considered one of my goofy people and somewhat yellow hatchback named Mustard or one thing.

You can submit your individual automotive names via this Google form. Just please submit good names, not imply ones. I do know somebody will inevitably ship in “Trucky McTruckface.”

You can seize the tactical roadtrip survival game on, GOG, and Steam.
