Focus Home Interactive has posted a gameplay overview trailer for horror tactical RPG Othercide. The lengthy trailer gives a narrated overview of the various components comprising the game's combat system, such as the game's dynamic timeline system and daughter skill sets.
Find the video below.
Othercide debuts on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in under two weeks on July 28th, and later this summer on Nintendo Switch. As Humanity’s last hope, lead your army of Daughters to combat in an intricate dance of spectacular actions and counters, and face fearsome bosses in epic battles. Today’s Gameplay Overview Trailer shows off exclusive footage, taking a deep dive into the tactical combat and progression systems that make up this dark indie gem.
Dynamic Timeline System: set up combos and manipulate foes
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.
Focus Home Interactive has also posted two developer diary videos for Othercide on behalf of the team at Lightbulb Crew. The first dev diary showcases the game's premise and lore, while the second highlights the combat.
Othercide is set to release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on July 28, with a Nintendo Switch release to follow. For more information on Othercide, you can check out the release date trailer or the announcement details from PAX East earlier this year.
