Geneforge 5: Overthrow is the fifth and final game in the RPG series and continues the story from Geneforge 4: Rebellion. As with all the other installments the game features open-ended game play and allows the player to explore the world maps freely except where constrained by enemy strength.

The player further delves into the world crafted and influenced by the Shapers, an elite class of highly specialized people that shape life into various forms, usually dangerous. The game offers six different classes to start building the character upon. As with the previous Geneforge games the player can put skill point emphasis in three areas: close combat, Shaper skills, and magic use. Compared to the previous game it contains a number of UI improvements and better support for higher graphic modes.
