Niche Spotlight – Othercide


Today’s Spotlight is Othercide, a turn-based tactics game with roguelite elements by Lightbulb Crew and Focus Home Interactive.

Humanity’s continued existence is threatened by a horrific, otherworldly power called the Suffering. The only thing standing in its way are the Daughters, echoes of the greatest warrior to have ever lived.

Raise an army of Daughters, and level them up with new skills and abilities as they survive brutal encounters against the Suffering. Chain together combos with your Daughters in battle to inflict severe damage on your enemies. While many of your Daughters will fall in battle, others will need to be sacrificed to improve the odds of your other Daughters in the fight against evil.

You can find the launch trailer below.

Othercide is available on Windows PC (via Steam), PlayStation 4, and Xbox One for $34.99, and coming soon to Nintendo Switch.

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.
