What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We aim to release into EA with a fully functional and exciting survival game mode. In order to make Othercide into the best game it could be, we will rely on the feedback suggestions from players that care about our game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We aim to do a final release of the game as soon as we reach our high-quality standards. During this period, we will evaluate community suggestions and ideas while also fixing bugs. We want to make sure that the game is improved with your suggestions and bug free.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version of the game is already a unique and exciting experience, with a full survival campaign. The final game will include more content and a strong story mode.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Our Early Access version will be an alpha version of Othercide. It will be a fully functional survival mode showing off the unique gameplay of Othercide. You will be able to engage in dynamic turn-based battles, build up your characters and unlock traits. As it will be an Alpha, expect bugs! The progress of the game development can be followed on our official Othercide dev blog: www.othercidegame.com.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“In the final version, the price of Othercide will increase slightly depending on new features and content we will add with the initial lower price serving as a 'thank you' to the community that supports us in the early development phase.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We want to deeply involve the community in our development process. Indeed, we truly believe that community help to enhance the overall quality of our game. We will be in a close relationship with our community through the official website, blog, and social media pages of the game (Facebook, Twitter, Youtube). We will also organize Q&A with the community to strengthen our special relationship (events, gathering at the studio, meetings with the team).”

Othercide at GDC: a great experience! 

From March 18-22, we were in San Francisco to attend GDC and show Othercide to journalists from all around the world. No need to say it was an incredible experience!




We had the chance to pitch the game at Game Connection and GDC in front of an audience and compete against other great indie games (congrats to Flux Games for winning with Talaka!). Getting feedback from passionate players helps us see how to make Othercide the best game it can be.




But more importantly, we released a brand new trailer for the game, showing you the dynamic turn-based combat system set in a dark and corrupted dimension beyond our reality. You can see how our female warriors fight against nightmarish creatures to save humanity!

Othercide | GDC Gameplay Trailer 2019

Overall, we had an opportunity to meet great people, talk to some amazing and insightful journalists and share our progress with them. We quote Andy Chalk of PC Gamer: “The game's red-slashed greyscale visual style is striking, but the combat is what it's all about. Unique character abilities and the "Initiative Sequence System" will enable players to interrupt incoming attacks, set up delayed actions that will occur later in the turn, and respond to enemy threats based on reaction skills.  “

We would also like to take a moment and reflect on the article by Spencer Legacy from MonsterVine who best described our hardcore gameplay:

“You should definitely choose your playstyle wisely though, as Othercide features good old-fashioned permadeath. If a unit dies, they’re gone for good, so you’ve got to be careful. This kind of punishment really keeps you on your toes, as I was for the entire demo.” – thanks Spencer!

And of course, we had a great opportunity to meet some of our followers who came by our stand, played Othercide demo and had a good laugh with our team! Thank you all for being a part of our community!

We hope we will have the chance to attend other great events to showcase the game this year!

In the meantime, don't forget to follow us on social media to follow the development of the game and wishlist our game on Steam to support us.

Cheers!

About This Game



Othercide is a horror-themed turn-based strategy game where the lore and game mechanics are tightly intertwined to deliver a twisted, dark and challenging experience. Enter a brutal world under assault from terrifying creatures from another dimension, hold back the tide with limited resources and endure brutal conditions in visually stunning world.



  • Dynamic turn-based combat: Othercide features unique turn-based combat mechanics such as the Initiative Sequence system. You will experience a new way to predict enemy movements and actions as you try to execute a flawless tactical plan. Foresee danger and set up attack interruptions, devastating delayed actions and lethal reactions. You will have to wisely time attacks and defenses to overcome your adversaries.

  • Brutal gameplay: Prepare to be the first and last line of defense against a seemingly endless enemy. Experience the tension of every decision with permanent death, roguelite features, deadly missions and limited resources. Every decision counts and comes with a sacrifice, whether it be resources or in blood!

  • Never ending war: Survive, protect and defend reality from shattering, try to endure as long as possible while facing terrible and sometimes deadly choices. Even in defeat, new truths are learned, and options arise as sacrifices bring you closer to success.

  • Striking art style: Othercide invites you to dive into an ethereal horror dimension, in-between two realities, brought to life with a dark and twisted monochromatic style, with a touch of vivid red.



Oh, my Dear… Can’t you remember anything? What was sleeping beyond the mirror is now awake… The Other is getting stronger. It suffers… It suffers so much. There is an eternal war between our two worlds. How long can we stand …?

How long before those nightmares shatter our reality? If we fail, nothing will remain…
Lead our Daughters in this desperate struggle to push the Others back out of our reality. Think carefully my dear as each decision you’ll make will come with a sacrifice…
