I think I deserve some kind of medal or accolade (some free games, perhaps?) for playing this one more than half way through. Honestly, I try to be open-minded, tell myself I'm maybe not PRECISELY the intended target audience, blah-blah-blah, but this game is ultimately just frustration in pixelated form. The premise is to help a little girl skip her merry way through myriad imaginary landscapes, using conjured-up items (such as staircases, slingshots, bombs, etc) to provide her safe passage and remove obstacles and enemies from her path. Easy enough at first, but as it progresses, your chances of making it through seem more and more dependent on the sheer blind luck of what useable imaginary object spawns for you next. I don't think I've ever groaned so many times in my life, and I don't even mean big, expressive, exasperated groans...just very small, non-committal, "Oh God, do I have do this bit AGAIN?" kinds of groans.

Honestly, my main criticism is that I can't quite imagine exactly WHO the "target audience" for this game/product even is, as it's clearly aimed at kids yet surely way too challenging and puzzle-orientated for the average six year-old to successfully negotiate. A game for overgrown, forty year-old, game-addicted losers, perhaps? No, wait, that would mean that YOURS TRULY should have enjoyed it; which frankly, I didn't. This just wasn't much "fun", I'm afraid, and I finally allowed myself to throw in the towel after dying in the exact same spot more than ten times in a row (something I will more than happily tolerate from a really good game, like Limbo or Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack, but not from the mediocre likes of this).

I'm almost tempted to give this a thumbs-up irrespective, in acknowledgement that it's not so much an "incompetent" game, just simply not a game "for me". But I honestly find it hard to believe that ANYONE is gonna get much pleasure from this, no matter what their age (or gender)...which arguably doesn't make it a very successful "game" at all, period. Does it? If I ever have kids, I might force them to play this one for an hour whenever they're naughty. "BEHAVE, OR I'LL MAKE YOU PLAY LUCIDITY FOR AN HOUR!" "NO, DAD, PLEASE...NOT LUCIDITY! PLEASE DAD...I'LL MOW THE LAWN...DO THE DISHES...BATHE THE DOG...BUT NOT LUCIDITY, PLEASE!!"

That oughtta learn 'em.

Verdict: 5/10.

Lucidity would simply be about grief and loss if it were a book or a movie. The protagonist, Sofi, is a young girl who loses her grandmother and then determinedly journeys to find her while struggeling to come to terms with her death. Lucidity is a not passive linear media, however, but instead is a game, and its specific gameplay is very much about quick thinking and adaptation, as the player is asked to help Sofi navigate constantly changing environments using a continually randomized set of tools.

These themes from story and gameplay seem to be oddly paired, especially at first. As the game begins, and Sofi starts marching forward on her own, the player is taught how to use certain tools to keep her safe until she reaches the end of the environment. Sofi is not entirely helpless (she’ll climb up small rises with ease), and the game might look much like it belongs in the platformer genre when viewed from a distance, albeit one that plays itself. If left alone, however, Sofi will die, and on later levels, die often, falling victim to giant enemies and treacherous falls. It will be up to you to keep her away from those living dust bunnies and spiky pits by placing things like staircases, fans and slingshots in her path, enabling her to jump and climb past danger.

Lucasarts described Lucidity as a “challenging puzzler,” and, well, I agree. The puzzle to be solved is fairly straightforward: get Sofi to the end of the level safely, navigating through a sometimes dangerous environment and around always dangerous creatures. I think it is important to point out that this particular puzzler does not derive its challenge from obscure solutions or mind-twisting scenarios; indeed, the game thrives on offering the player a multitude of solutions at any given moment. If the ground is covered in deadly plants, you might slingshot Sofi past them, build stairs to let her climb over them, place a jump pad to let her climb to a higher level of platforms, or bomb the plants out of existence. All of these actions would probably work with some degree of success. The challenge lies in choosing the best solution with the current tools available, and then in implementing the solution before Sofi runs into danger. The time pressure makes the relatively straightforward problem solving thrilling.

Lucidity deals with is treatment of grief by cleverly separating the bereaved character from the player, casting the player as the one helping the main character through her pain. The player must continually adapt while the playing field and pieces change, as Sofi must learn to adapt to the concept of death. The symbolic journey does falter a bit toward the end as the narrative pulls apart from the gameplay, unfortunately.

There are a few technical quirks that impact the experience enough that they bear mentioning. Because gameplay essentially involves placing level pieces on a grid, a gamepad offers a smoother experience here compared to a mouse (having a mouse cursor constantly snapping to a grid is an alien and unnerving sensation).

Lucidity is a short game in which you fate of Sofi; a little girl who is searching for her grandma. Although the game may look like a platformer, it is actually more of a puzzle game as you do not actually control Sofi but place objects in her path which cause her to change her behaviour. This is a very short game - you can easily complete it within a couple of hours - but to get the most out of this game, it is worthwhile 100%ing it by collecting all the fireflies you can. It will only take a few more hours to do so, but the challenge is worth it.

A combination of platformer and Tetris. Character moves forward at a constant pace. Place various puzzle pieces in the level to keep the girl from falling. Beautiful artwork and all around lovely game. A real work of art. Definitely worth buying.

This game tells the story of a little girl named Sofi who is coming to terms with the death of her grandmother. Sofi constantly walks forward through levels of her dreams and you have to place objects in front of her to make sure she gets to the end of each dream level safely. Along the way you need to collect fireflies by shaping her path towards them. Each level will take multple tries to cover all the possible paths to collect all the fireflies, but it's very rewarding to get every last elusive firefly as they will reveal additional levels. This is such a simple game, but it's very nicely designed and quite addictive once you get the hang of it.

Don't bother. I liked the concept, but controls are frustrating. I don't mind failing at puzzle games when I am to blame, but when I constantly feel like I fail because of problems in the programming, then I'm done playing.

Kinda-frustrating puzzle platformer where a little girl keeps walking and you throw The Incredible Machine-style props down to assist her. Add in some Rare-level collectable hunting made more irritating by the fact that your props are randomized, and it's a game that's going to be somewhat skill-based but just heavily weighted by the RNG to whether things go smoothly or you pull your hair out for one more damn firefly.

Lucidity could've been so much more than it is today. I expected a cute, little puzzle platformer and, in a way, it is (especially the graphics look cute), but I expected a platformer where I could move MYSELF, instead of the game moving the character for me. It's basically an on-rails platformer, and you just give directions to the character. And the goal is to collect as many fireflies as you can. Cute, but nothing else.

Gameplay takes a back seat to the art direction on this beautiful and endearing game. It's a short and somewhat inexpensive game, but I can only recommend this if you really are interested in this game's atmosphere, story and soundtrack. Otherwise it's just a clunky puzzle-platformer on rails.

I wanted to like this game but it is terrible. A polished turd.

An otherwise solid game set back by a completely broken game mechanic. It's a nice idea but just doesn't work. This should have been canned when the first playable prototype was made. I can only imagine that the team didn't realise this until there was too much invested in it.

This game is short. It's cute but suprisingly not that easy. It's also impossible to get 100% completion. Unless you try forever. Good game, but I personally wouldn't shell out money for it (it was a gift)

The most disappointing game in my collection. At least it's not very expensive.

A strange kind of 2D platformer where you plop down stairs, springs and things in front of the character as she walks along Lemming-fashion and you try and get her to collect fireflys.

Adorable and heartwarming. Seriously the story for this game is beautiful, the game in fun, the art is cute. Though, if these adjectives make you squirm, don't buy it.
