I’m always game for an interesting new title. And I’m easily drawn to dark and fascinating visuals. Which is why I’m hyped that 2Awesome Studio is bringing Othercide to Nintendo Switch. I admit to not being familiar with the game, but after checking out a few images, I was hooked. The fact the game is a tactical RPG is just icing on the cake.
Othercide is developed by the partnership between Focus Home Interactive and Lightbulb Crew. If you love dark and brooding, then you should probably check it out. It reminds me of a mixture of Parasite Eve and Soul Reaver. But don’t just listen to my random opinion. Check out the press release and trailer below!
2Awesome Studio Helps Bring Othercide to
In partnership with Focus Home Interactive and Lightbulb Crew, 2Awesome Studio has ported Othercide for Nintendo Switch!
THE NETHERLANDS – [SEPT 10, 2020] – Today, 2Awesome Studio is announcing its latest venture; porting of Othercide to Nintendo Switch for release today! The announcement comes after Othercide’s Switch Release Date reveal, and in partnership with Focus Home Interactive and Lightbulb Crew, publisher and developer of Othercide, respectively.
Othercide is a dark and brooding tactical-RPG available on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, and boasts highly positive reviews across all platforms. IGN calls Othercide, “the best turn-based tactics game of the year so far,” and now, in partnership with 2Awesome Studio, is being introduced to the Nintendo Switch community today!
“Bringing Othercide to Nintendo Switch was one of the biggest challenges for us as a studio. When Lightbulb Crew approached us about this possibility we weren’t sure if it was going to be possible. Othercide has a unique color scheme and visual style that requires the use of advanced volumetric lightning, fog effects, PBR reflections and even cloth and hair simulation. The challenge was not just bringing it to Switch but making sure it would be as faithful to the original vision as possible making it a great portable experience. I can say I am proud of the results of our team”, said Alejandro Santiago, Co-founder and Lead developer at 2Awesome Studio.
From the Developer:
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.
