People say inane things on Twitter. Like, what they had for breakfast. What the person next to them on the train is doing. Or whatever music they just happen to be listening to. Wouldn't you like to shoot them?

Information Overload is a simple side-scrolling shmup where the waves of enemies are text plucked randomly from various internet sources, including Twitter.
