Focus Home Interactive have released the first episode in a dev diary series for Lightbulb Crew’s upcoming turn-based tactics game, Othercide.
The first episode in this dev diary series focuses on the game’s general lore, and the inspirations behind Othercide‘s grim character designs and visuals. You can find the dev diary below. Viewers will need to use YouTube’s subtitles feature, as several of the game’s developers speak French.
You can find a rundown of the game (via Steam) below:
Descend into Humanity’s last hope. The Daughters, echoes of the greatest warrior to ever live, are all who stand before Suffering and death.
Lead your army of Daughters to battle with all the skill you can muster. Your prowess in combat will decide their fate, shape their abilities and personality. Make the toughest decision and sacrifice one to heal another – survivors will get stronger, ready to fight the next battle.
Combat is an intricate dance of spectacular actions and counters: plan ahead of time and set up impressive chains of abilities to outsmart the enemy. Fight in epic boss battles against the sources of Suffering – dread creatures pulled from the worst of Humanity’s crimes against itself.
You will fight. You will fail. You will rise again.
