    Hiya,

    After 4 years' work by myself (code) and my girlfriend Sarah (artwork), i'm hyped to say Overcrowd: A Commute 'Em Up is launching today into Early Access on Steam.

    Description:
    Overcrowd: A Commute 'Em Up is a tactical management sim set on the metro of bustling city Lubdon Town. It blends base-building, pausable real-time strategy, and spatial puzzling.

    Might buy if it was on sale. Interesting concept though, might be useful if politicians see that random gamers are actually better city managers than the current tyrannical senile old farts in charge.

    Oh ****, Greystillplays on YouTube did a video on your game. That's amazing. Serious advertising there. This game is going to take off.

    Hey all - just a quick note/beg for votes. Overcrowd is in the top 100 of the indie DB "Indie of the Year" ! If you can spare a moment to give me a vote, it would be awesome if we made it into the top 10 (I think we might be the only Gamemaker game in the top 100? But apologies if there are others there I didn't sport!) You van vote here: https://www.indiedb.com/groups/2019-indie-of-the-year-awards/top100#vote43523

    Hey man, great job with the isometric engine! I have a problem with the depth sorting and wonder how did you deal with sprites that occupy multiple tiles?
