Codemasters has been out of the action genre of games for quite a while now. Their last foray was the less then well received shootem up, Bodycount, and since then they’ve pretty much only focused on racing games. One of their more loved titles, however, would probably have to be the Overlord series.
The first game was one of my favorites when it originally released, mixing in some elements of Pikmin with a hack ‘n’ slash game that had some dark humor in it that I really enjoyed at the time. In a surprising move today, Codemasters seems to be teasing a return of the franchise as you can see via the Tweet below.
