unique/angelic/demonic/hybrid protagonist - a cross-breed of the two, so he's quite special.
odd appliances - the starting weapon is a demon's head, the second weapon gained is a shattered cube.

Overdose's events start sometime after the end of Painkiller as a result of Lucifer's death (at Daniel's hands) when Belial is freed, having been trapped by Lucifer's essence.

Apparently this was originally a community driven mod for Painkiller.
