LucasArts has announced a brand new platformer, and it has nothing at all to do with Star Wars! According to LucasArts, Lucidity takes players on a trip into the imagination of Sofi, a young girl who is" filled with a persistent desire to explore new worlds and overcome all obstacles in her way."
The game is described as a "challenging puzzle platform game," where "players are tasked with keeping Sofi safe as she drifts deeper into the strange new world of her dreams. Through quick reaction and placement of randomly generated puzzle pieces, players must create a path through beautifully detailed dreamscapes to keep Sofi in perpetual motion and deliver her to safety." So the players manipulate the environment around Sophi, who moves automatically. Sounds intriguing, right?
Platform games are totally fascinating, because one one hand, they are among the oldest form of games, but in another sense, platformers are home to some of the most innovative titles coming out. Think Braid or Shadow Complex. Lucidity is set for release on Xbox Live Arcade and PC via digital download on October 7.
