After buying Overgrowth on Steam or through Humble Bundle, you can access it on Mac OS, Windows, or Linux, with or without DRM. Further, after purchase, you gain access Overgrowth's Secret Preorder Forums (aka SPF). In order to read and post to the SPF, you will need to create or log into a Wolfire forum account. Then, following the link given in your order confirmation email, type your forum account nickname to get access to the SPF.
Steam users can follow this guide for getting access to the SPF.
The SPF is a place where the Overgrowth community can gather to discuss all aspects of the game with others who have purchased the game, as well as ask questions to the Wolfire team. Wolfire also has a dedicated Discord server. Join in the conversation!
Upon opening the game, you will be greeting with a menu screen. You can click "play" to get started on one of the game's default campaigns. You can click "mods" to enable or disable various game modes, levels, and modifications. Most settings for Overgrowth can be changed within the game's "Settings" menu; to change other settings or configure controller support, see Configuring Overgrowth.
For help controlling your character and learning basic combat commands, see Player Controls.
If you wish to try community-created content for the game, you can visit the Steam workshop, download and install the files manually from the SPF, or use the community created tool, the SUMLauncher.
If you encounter any errors, bugs, or other problems while installing or running Overgrowth, you can file a report to the Wolfire team via email at [email protected], so they can be made aware of the issue, and work to find a solution for it.
Your email should contain the following:

- A Brief explanation of the problem
- Actions performed, step by step, which led up to encountering the problem
- Expected and Actual Results
