Focus Home Interactive and Lightbulb Crew have released a gamplay overview video of the upcoming tactical horror RPG Othercide, in which players control a group known as The Daughters as they fight against The Suffering. This new video shows the combat as it unfolds through a turn based system, though there is some difference from the traditional turn based formula thanks to the Dynamic Timeline System. You can see it in the video and description of the Dynamic Timeline System follows below.
In Othercide, the unique Dynamic Timeline System is at the core of every battle. Rather than simply controlling where and what your units do, you will also manipulate when things happen. This can be used in many ways, from interrupting an enemy attack before it even occurs, to unleashing a devastating series of combos. Death will inevitably take you. Healing Daughters requires the sacrifice of another, and your forces cannot withstand the onslaught of Suffering forever. However, there is hope: each failed run opens up new game-changing abilities, options and opportunities for the next attempt.
The Daughters are an army that carry traits of the greatest warrior to live and each will get their own personality as battles occur, but sacrifices may have to be made where a Daughter is lost for the bigger picture. Othercide will be released on July 28th for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Pre-orders are live on PC and Xbox One with a 15% discount. A Switch release will be coming at a later date.
