'Lucius' Narrows Down Date, Gets Cutscenes Overhaul - Screens

In this a 3rd person mystery horror, Lucius is the son of the devil who has to clear the mansion of it’s residents. To do this he must or castrate “accidents” without anyone suspecting him of any foul play.

His childish innocence wasn't meant to last long, oh no: When little Lucius was born on the meaningful date of June 6th, 1966, nobody expected him to be anything other than a normal little boy. His childhood, spent in a luxurious manor, was as normal as every kid's young years - well, except for the extreme wealth of his parents, as Lucius grew up with everything he desired, including several maids, the family's own butcher and Lucius' private teacher.

Everything changed, though, when Lucius turned 6: His real father, the Devil, appeared in his dreams the night before his birthday, revealing that Lucius was his son.

The Beast managed through Lucius to bring a descendant back to the earth - and so it is Lucius' task now to accomplish the missions of Evil, which is gaining control over the world. Firstly, Lucius needs to get rid of all his family members and the service staff in the manor to be able to make their wealth and powers his.


“Over the past few months we have internally reviewed our game and decided that we should spend more time reworking and improving areas that influenced the storytelling and overall presentation of the game. Unfortunately, even small changes in these areas take time to implement. Therefore we also decided to spend this time improving all the cut scenes in the game, which has resulted in a huge increase in the level of graphical detail. We’ll now be reaching beta status soon, and are looking forward to releasing Lucius in October 2012””, explains Johannes Aikio, founder and lead designer at Shiver Games.

Equipped with supernatural powers, Lucius starts off to a blood-flooding tour of horror through his house, using hell's powers of telekinesis and mind control to orchestrate deadly accidents that will minimize the population of the manor one by one by one...

The player starts as Lucius and must cleverly devise these incidents from simple household items. Every time he succeeds he will gain supernatural powers to help him take full control.

His growing supernatural powers may be used in various ways. He will eventually become able to control objects and people with mind power, move objects around without touching them. Lucius even has the incredible mind power to dictate weak people into causing destruction and pain.
