Twin-stick madness on hot wheels in a bathtub-punk setting

More specifically: Pressure Overdrive is a unique combination of breakneck arcade-action with shoot’em-up elements in a steampunk world filled with crazy characters and funky humor. And lots of bullets.

Pressure Overdrive


Stuttgart, Germany – July 13, 2017 – Chasing Carrots’ Pressure Overdrive revives Morgan’s hilarious adventure in his steam-buggy, to cross the opening of an evil Uber Spa and get back the stolen river water. An engaging story, you see, that lives by its simplicity. To leave more room for ramming and blasting.


With their debut title Pressure, Chasing Carrots introduced an action-arcade experience on its own, in 2013. Soon, the officially codenamed Overdrive will deliver a definitive experience with lots of improvements in regards of controls, game modes and –probably the most fun part– customizing the steam-buggy. What began in the effort just to bring the experience to recent consoles became a new game with a different flow and unique elements.

Curious? Watch the T railer.

And since shared fun is double the fun, Pressure Overdrive admirably enhances local couch sessions for two players. Co-op goes for all play modes, of course, including the brand-new Endless mode. A fully physics-powered 3D world awaits, where only wits count, and bullet-patterns are never the same.

La Resistance is looking for recruits. Enlist today and board your steambuggy.


Here is what you get if you join the cause:


  • single player and local co-op
  • campaign and Freeplay mode
  • the crazy Endless mode
  • 3 Worlds with 30+ Levels
  • dozens of enemy types & 3 boss fights
  • a customizable buggy with 35+ items
  • online highscores
  • 10 supported languages
  • and last but not least, a steamfunky soundtrack!
Release + Platforms

Pressure Overdrive will be released for PlayStation 4, Steam (Windows, Linux, macOS) on July 25th and on Xbox One on July 26th.
