LucasArts Workshop’s first game, Lucidity, is now available. It’s on Steam for £7, and we’re told it will be elsewhere (such as Direct2Drive) soon enough. It’s a platformer crossed with Tetris, where you guide the young girl, Sofi, through a dream-like world by placing objects for her to run across. The old trailer is below, along with LucasArts’ blurb for the release.
We’ll take a look at the game pretty soon and let you know our thoughts. Meanwhile, if you’ve picked it up on impulse, let us know your opinion below. Here’s the trailer:
And here’s LucasArts’ deja vu inducing launch details:
“From the team that re-imagined The Secret of Monkey Island, comes Lucidity, an addictive puzzle platformer set in the surreal childlike dreamscapes of the little girl Sofi. In this challenging puzzler, it’s your task to keep Sofi safe as she drifts deeper into the strange new world of her dreams. Featuring stunning hand-illustrated visuals, a spell-binding original score and unique puzzle platformer gameplay, Lucidity will challenge your wits, test your reflexes and mesmerize your senses.”
For some reason they then take another stab at this, saying,
“Take a trip into the surreal childlike dreamscapes of Sofi, a little girl filled with a persistent desire to explore new worlds and overcome all obstacles in her way. Test your skills in this addictive puzzle platformer where through quick reactions and placement of unique puzzle pieces, you create a path to help Sofi traverse safely through 27 visually stunning, hand-illustrated dreamscapes.”
