Othercide is available now on Nintendo Switch alongside a new update on PC
After a triumphant release on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Lightbulb Crew and Focus Home Interactive celebrate the long-awaited Switch release of the tactical horror RPG Othercide with a new Launch Trailer showcasing the game’s warm reception from press and players alike. To celebrate the release period, players can enjoy a special discounted price on the Nintendo eShop, in addition to a discount currently on Steam as part of the Focus Home Interactive Publisher Weekend. The new Dream Mode also arrives today on PC, coming at a later date to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
Dream Mode eases the challenge for new players
The Dream Mode update brings a new difficulty mode that lessens some of the harshest experiences in Othercide for smoother gameplay. The original and intended difficulty for the game is still available as Nightmare Mode. This update also brings a number of balance changes across both modes to lessen the punishing nature of the game’s first boss, The Surgeon.
In Dream Mode, Daughters regenerate health more regularly and an additional Resurrection Token is granted on game start. This allows players to more freely use abilities that cost HP and worry less about the death of their Daughters. The game is still challenging, and wrong moves will lead to a quick death, but increased accessibility should allow more players than ever to enjoy their trip to the Dark Corner.
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.
