The dark tactical RPG Othercide from Focus Home Interactive and Lightbulb alongside a partnership with 2Awesome Studio have ported the previously released game to the Nintendo Switch. In addition PC, Xbox, and PS4 players can checkout the first free content update that add the Dream Mode.
Nintendo Switch players can now take in all the action as they descend into humanity’s last hope. The Daughter, echoes of the greatest warrior to ever live, stand before Suffering and Death. As the battle against the dread creatures of the Suffering progresses players will make tough decisions that will shape the fates, abilities and personalities of their army of Daughters. Combat is a dance of spectacular actions and counters which require planning to outsmart both the common enemies and the epic bosses.
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.Alejandro Santiago, Co-Founder and Lead Developer, 2Awesome Studio
