The dark world of “Ottercide” now available on Xbox One
Thercid is a tactical RPG, which takes place in an interdimensional area of the subspace called Dark Corner. The world is illogical, governed by broken psyches and trama, our logic and our physical laws do not apply. By emboding the child, you will have to push back horrible creatures, created by trauma and sufferings, to discover the tragic story of the child.
The art of the game was inspired by the Trama Alex Bullatt, the artistic director, experienced as a young adult. He thought that drawing inspiration from such a personal experience would help give a soul to the game. At the age of 18, Alex contracted a blood disease that made him bed for several months. The febrile delusions he has experienced during this period inspired the creatures of the game:
“At night, pain and fever made me” see “things: creatures biting me the bones, hiding in the dark corners of my room, sneaking out of the shadows to make fun of my condition…
“They were some of the” visions “that I wanted to bring othercide, and with our talented artistic team, we ended up exploring our own feelings and fears to finally transpose them into the artistic direction.
This artistic approach makes othercide to stand out in its kind. The whole world is monochromatic, with only the red color used to expand the game. But the artistic team took care to use art serving the gameplay. Thus, the red color not only transmits emotions but also important information about the game. For example, red scarves can be linked to the tradition of the game, but the scarves also show the health of those who wear them.
This artistic direction is bold, it may not be suitable for everyone, but it is certainly catchy! Are you going to resume this game today? Do you like or hate artistic outbreak? Tell us in the comments below.
