Overlord is one of those games I've been waiting on since the second I heard about it. You play an evil overlord in control of a imp army. You wave your hand and they do your bidding and destroy your enemies while delivering power and wealth. It's your chance to be unapologetically evil.
I took some time to demo the game yesterday afternoon. And amused myself slaughtering sheep, destroying farms and doning pumpkin helmets. That is to say, as your imps "sweep" the land they find and equip all manner of arms and armor.
Early in the demo you rid a local farm of a minor halfling infestation. The halfings have planted pumpkins, which, after having razed the crop, many of my imps were running around with jack-o-lantern on their heads. Shortly there after the wisened tutorial imp encourages me to set on fire a wheat field where a handful of halflings are hiding. Much fun was had by all.
Now, I didn't see any of my imps put poop on their heads, but given their nature it's not something that would be completely unexpected.
If you have some time and extra storage space to grab the demo, I encourage you to do so. I grabbed it from Gamespot, but I'm sure it's available at Fileplanet as well. 360 owners can pick it up on XBLA.
