Overcome is a 2D action platformer in which you beat your inner demons without fighting them. It displays how grief changes a person's perception of the world around them.


Overcome was made to be an expression to the developer's personal experience with fighting cancer and coping with the mental stresses of going through treatment while at the same time attending college for a CS degree, going through a hard breakup later, and wanting to develop games as a profession. It is the first game made by the developer and was developed in a 6 month timeframe.


  • Fluid platforming mechanics that allow you to evade, block and fight various figments of your mind.
  • A unique shield that lets you block, deflect and glide to fight your inner demons as they attack you in several different fashions.
  • Four extremely challenging levels that will have the player dying multiple times before they can overcome the challenges.
  • Beautiful pixel art.
  • A heartfelt message expressed with metaphors.
