Why an Othercide FAQ ?

With an Othercide FAQ, our goal is to explain how we come up with the game idea and ultimately  build a strong core community. We will detail our processes about the artistic direction, game and level design or gameplay mechanics.

What is Othercide?

Othercide is a horror themed tactical turn-based game set in an esoteric world beyond our reality. The game will place the player in control of an army of gifted female warriors, in a desperate struggle to push nightmarish creatures back and prevent reality from shattering.

What can I expect from Othercide?

Othercide will provide you a challenging gaming experience. Our game is built up around several key features: * Breaking the turn-based standard: Introducing the Initiative Sequence(™) system, players will experience a new way to predict enemies’ moves and put the perfect plan in place in response. Using interrupts or delayed actions and reactions, players will have to wisely manipulate the sequence order, deciding when to change from defensive play to offensive to overcome their adversaries.

  • Punitive gameplay: With no cover, no healing and permadeath, players always have tough choices to make and each decision comes with a sacrifice, of resources, or in blood!
  • Striking art style: Using only black, white and some touches of vivid red, Othercide invites players to dive into an ethereal horror dimension between conscious and unconscious.
  • Replayability: Survive, protect your ground and defend reality, your task won’t be easy, as players’ will face ruthless creatures that constantly try to push through breaches into our reality.

When Othercide will be released?

Why an Early Access version of Othercide?

With an Early Access campaign for Othercide, our main goal is to build a strong core community. We expect to gather a closed group of people actively testing the game and sending us bug reports and

feedback on the artistic direction, game and level design, gameplay mechanics. Therefore, we will be able to look at what works, what needs changes and how to plan our next steps wisely.

How do you develop Othercide?

Othercide is being developed on Unity. You can discover all our development secrets on our development blog.

Who’s behind Othercide?
