Overlord

Controls minions with your best (evil) friend as you terrorize the country side.Overlord is set in an unnamed fantasy world, where the player takes the role of a resurrected warrior known simply as The Overlord who has control over hordes of gremlin-like creatures known as "minions". The player must defeat seven corrupt ruling heroes in order to reconquer the lands and establish his lordship over its inhabitants. The game features a corruption feature, similar to that of the Fable games, but allowing the player to "be evil... or really evil", where certain actions and choices affect different aspects of the story and gameplay. While controlling the Overlord in a third person perspective, the way minions are controlled to battle and perform actions brings elements of real time strategy, with upgrades bringing those of role-playing games. The game also uses black humour and often parodies and satires the traditional fantasy setting and plot.
