NEWS: Ruins Update is out!


A top-down action game designed around procedural generation, a large variety of weapons, and unlockable content wrapped in a parody about time travel.

Take control of a scientist who tries to escape a sudden Apocalypse through his time machine, only for the machine to malfunction and dump him in a distorted version of Earth, filled with just about everything that wants to kill you!

This is the alpha version of Earth Overclocked. The full version will be released on Desura at a later date. The full version won't be available on Game Jolt at any time because commercial games aren't allowed on this website.

Alpha Release Features

  • Explore Distorted Earth and find the pieces of your broken time machine before it's too late.
  • Support for XInput gamepads (Xbox 360 and other newer gamepads).
  • Procedural generation. No two runs are the same! (Well, it's possible I guess, but you will probably have a better chance of being struck by lightning.)
  • Extremely challenging, sometimes unfair, gameplay. Expect to die. A lot. Don't worry, dying is half the fun!
  • Fully explorable overworld with 5 biomes.
  • Fully explorable dungeons. 2.1 dungeons (yes, you read that right) are generated in each run.
  • 20 unique weapons, 2 of them unlockable. Weapons have random stats and 'names.'
  • 15 (mostly) powerful foes. They have random stats, too!
  • 7 tough bosses, and you can fight up to four of them per run (assuming you last that long). Unfortunately, they don't have random stats, nor is it planned. Life is unfair.
  • Easy-to-manage dual equipment system.
  • Local high scores. See who in your family is the worst!
  • An options menu.
  • Maniacally Awesome Weapon Name Generator Of Pain (It's completely useless, to be honest.)
  • No time paradoxes!

It's getting there guys! Just still don't really understand the blue timer thing :/

The timer will have those unnecessary and confusing numbers and dates removed in the next update. The expanded timer will be readded as a visual unlockable in the future.

For now, what's really important are the blue digits. Ignore the rest of the information.

A linux version wasn't actually planned, but now that you mention it, why not? We will look into it for the next version, which is the Ruins Update (

We can confirm that the game runs at full FPS on Ubuntu now. Expect it to be released alongside the next update.

This is one of the very best games I have ever played on Gamejolt. I remember you asking a question on the GMC about how some of the sprites were distorted.

Yeah, the sprites are still slightly distorted in fullscreen. There really isn't a way to fix the problem, I'm afraid.

The worst part about the fullscreen distortion is the scanlines. They look very bad on some monitor resolutions, but this is why you can disable the scanlines in the options menu.
