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. As we head towards the encounter with Suffering, the webseries continues. Episode two, “Fighting Shadows”, explains the origins of Othercide’s unique combat that has morphed the traditional turn-based system into the Dynamic Timeline System.

The webseries concludes!

This marks the end of the two-episode miniseries which began with episode one, “Forging Nightmares”, which focused on Othercide’s lore and artistic inspirations. Lightbulb Crew is hard at work putting the finishing touches on their dark masterpiece, but you can expect much more footage and gameplay over the coming month.
