Focus Home Interactive have released a new trailer for Lightbulb Crew’s upcoming roguelite turn-based tactics game, Othercide.
As previously reported [1, 2], players manage an elite unit called the Daughters in the war against the Suffering; an army of terrible creatures that threaten the continued survival of humanity. Players can delay enemy actions, and string combos together. However, a Daughter can only be healed by sacrificing the life of another.
The latest trailer introduces players to some of the dark and twisted boss encounters they can look forward to in the final game. The creatures appear to have once been human, now heavily corrupted in both mind and body.
You can find the boss trailer below.
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.
