Othercide Combat Shown Off In ‘Fighting Shadows’ Dev Diary

Othercide drips with style. From the graphics being black and white with blood-red highlighting, to the character and environment design, to the ‘read-and-react’ flow of combat – every bit of it is memorable.

The combat systems get a deep dive in the latest epsiode of the Othercide Webseries, entitled ‘Fighting Shadows’ with creative director and CEO Anders Larsson and art director Alexandre Chaudret offering their insight into the process.

Othercide is slated to release July 28th and pre-orders for the game are already live for Steam and Xbox One with a 15% discount. Pre-orders for the PS4 version should be going live soon, you can check shop.othercidegame.com to keep updated on the progress on that front.

The game will be coming to the Nintendo Switch as well, but there’s no date attached to that release yet.

'Othercide' Revealed With Stellar Trailer

Trailers are tricky things to get right, but the reveal trailer for Othercide, a gothic tactical RPG due out this summer, absolutely nails it.

That is slick and creepy, with the game’s use of limited colour really helping drive the presentation. I’m interested in seeing what the combat is like, with dynamic turn system that plays host to attacks, counters, and interrupts.
Need higher stakes? There’s permadeath…

Focus Home Interactive & Lightbulb Crew’s Othercide Coming This Summer

Fight, fall and rise again in this horror-inspired tactical RPG for PlayStation®4, Xbox One and PC

PARIS  Feb. 21, 2020 – Focus Home Interactive and Lightbulb Crew have revealed that the gothic tactical RPG Othercide will come to PlayStation®4, Xbox One and PC this summer. Othercide marries the dark art design and world-building of the horror genre with the deep systems and challenges of a strategy game for a truly gripping experience.
Combat in Othercide is a spectacular dance of actions and counters built around a dynamic turn system. Command an army of Daughters, haunting echoes of the greatest warrior to ever live, in deadly battles against horrific dread creatures and bosses birthed from the worst of humanity’s crimes. Interrupt enemy attacks while planning and setting up your own chain of actions later in the timeline to perform devastating assaults on your foes.
Othercide’s visually stunning universe is ruthless: you’ll face deadly missions, roguelite features like limited resources and permadeath, and the difficult decision to sacrifice one Daughter to make another stronger. Your prowess in combat will decide the fate of your Daughters, shaping their stats, abilities and personalities for better or worse, evolving over time into a reflection of your actions.
Othercide will be showcased at PAX East at the Focus Home Interactive booth (#29017) from February 27 to March 1. For more information on the game, check out https://www.othercidegame.com.
