The House of the Dead: Overkill is a first-person rail shooter video game developed by Headstrong Games and published by Sega for the Wii. It is the fifth game developed in the The House of the Dead series, a prequel to the original The House of the Dead chronologically and the first in the series to be released exclusively on a home console. It was released on February 10, 2009 in North America and February 13, 2009 in Europe. The game was released in Japan on September 17, 2009 bundled with the Wii Zapper accessory.

Starting in 1991, seven years before the events of The House of the Dead, AMS Special Agent G is given his first assignment and is sent to a small town in Louisiana to investigate a series of disappearances and hunt down a deranged crime lord, Papa Caesar. Due to the presence of mutants, G is forced to team up with Detective Isaac Washington, who is out to get revenge on Caesar for apparently killing his father.
