Designed and developed exclusively for Wii, Overlord: Dark Legend is a brand-new action-adventure steeped in fairy tale lore with sinister, satirical twists. Set in a time before the original game, players step into the role of a new younger Overlord and revel in command of the most vicious, yet lovable little critters in gaming - the Minions.

Forming a unique rampaging army, the Minions are a demonic, slavish and loyal horde of imp-like critters predisposed to violence. No matter: they're always ready and willing to follow even the most suicidal order, whether it's raiding villages for kicks and giggles or hurling themselves at enemies in the face of kamikaze odds in the beautifully rendered game world. With a story and characters that poke playful fun at fantasy cliché, our trainee tyrant will be able to take his growing pains out on the local fairytale inhabitants as he protects his castle and lands.

Special Features
* Seize the Power: Donning the armour of the Overlord, players become commander-in-chief of a fighting, thieving and pillaging horde of crazed minions (with hundreds more waiting in reserve) - a force quite unlike any other. Send out your minions to crush rock giants, gnomes, halflings, elves, dwarves, peasants and more. Become a new Overlord, conquer realms and grow your castle from dilapidated ruins to glorious expression of your absolute power.
* Pillage and Destroy with the Wii Remote: Controlling the minions is slick and devastating, requiring a flick of the Wii Remote to send the raucous rabble into battle. Whether you're swishing the Remote to sweep the horde into battle or pointing it to direct magic spells and fireballs at enemies, the Wii Remote becomes the perfect extension of the Overlord's despotic will.
* Throttle Your Minions: Individual Minions can be plucked from the horde, held by the neck and then, by vigorously shaking the Wii Remote, throttled! This stirs up the volatile lifeforce within them and they become a manic minion missile. With a now-explosive body, the insane little critter can be guided into enemies with hilarious, if rather fatal, consequences for both parties.
* A Twisted Fairytale: With a rich, tongue-in-cheek story written by award-winning games author Rhianna Pratchett, this exclusive Overlord adventure for Wii tells a new and twisted fairytale. The lead character is in a Cinderella scenario with his elder and rather unpleasant brother and sister. He is the forgotten child while his father is away, and his wicked twin siblings are plotting to take over the kingdom with their own perverse alliances with elves and dwarves. The story game also introduces wicked witches, gingerbread men and Lil' Red, the seeming sweet girl with a lupine side to her personality.

Yes - not the same game as Overlord for the PC. 89p is a steal by-the-way - it's a great game (on the PC that is - I've no idea about this one).

Did I say it was for the Wii ?
I said I got that game for 89p from Steam
...actually, I thought it would be obvious to all and sundry.
I presumed "wong" clearly.
You yourself jumped to the "wong" conclusion, eh ? (which is more than you can say about your comment)

So what was the point of your comment then?
Would it be useful if on a xbox thread someone come and say they got the game for less on ps3 three months ago?
At least if you had wanted to be constructive and helpful, you could have given an opinion of the game on pc. Obviously not a direct equivalent but at least that might have been a useful contribution to the thread.

My Son of 8 and daughter of 12 both loved this game.

Did not take them long to go through as it's a small game but full of funny effects and interesting twist on the usual quest games.
