Othercide is less than two weeks away and Lightbulb Crew is turning up the hype. Check out their first and second dev diaries to see how the game came to be. This week's offering is all about the gameplay. You will learn the Dynamic Timeline System and/or you will die. This is chess taken to the extreme as you think several moves ahead. Organize the Daughters so that one attack pushes your enemy into another. Sacrifice one Daughter so that a stronger one may live to triumph. The minions of the Suffering will claim their lives while you gain experience and ability for the next run. This game is made to be highly replayable.
Othercide – The Daughters
Your army of Daughters are comprised of three classes; you must decide what works best. The blademaster excels at CQC; you can use her to knock enemies into other attackers. Shieldbearers have high defense and can be used in various ways. Let them take the aggro while other units prepare their attack. Lastly, the soulslinger is a long range gunner skilled in combos. Healing a Daughter requires life from another and death is permanent. Use your units wisely and learn from your mistakes.
