Sandbox Sataning: Lucius 2 Announced

By Alice O'Connor on August 8th, 2014.

Psst! Kid! Your cross is downside-up.

The idea of Lucius sounded jolly good fun, an Omen ‘em up about the son of the Satan offing his family and servants. But as our Jim noted in his review, in reality it was more an adventure game where the puzzles to solve happened to be people to murder. You might, for example, break a lawnmower so you can mind-control the gardener into jamming his head into its spinning blades.

Lucius II, announced today, seems far more keen on Satantic murder. Developers Shiver Games describe it as a “3D splatter adventure sandbox” about terrorising a hospital and a small town. The trailer sure has a lot of splatter, with heads popping off and fires fires fires.

Wot I Think: Lucius

By Jim Rossignol on September 27th, 2012.


Lucius arrives on the 26th of October, just in time to be played as you close the curtains and ignore trick or treaters on Halloween.

Yikes: Lucius Is Going To Hell In October

By Jim Rossignol on June 7th, 2012.


The Ladies & Gentlemen aboard the VG247 newsblimp have beamed up another interesting minor announcement, which is that Shiver Games’ spooky Omen-like horror game Lucius, in which you play a demon-child offing people in a country house, is to arrive in October. It’s an open world thing, which gives you the run of the house, allowing you some invention in how you kill off characters before your journey to hell. Looks both worrying and intriguing.

Trailer below.

Lucius: The Pint-Sized Demonic Hitman

By Lewie Procter on August 17th, 2011.


There have been all sorts of horror games over the years, including plenty that made no sense at all, but never have I seen one that lets you play as the archetypal “creepy child” from various works of horror fiction. An oversight, perhaps. It’s all to change come “Q4 2011″, however, as Lucius sees you playing as the son of the devil, given the task to kill all the residents of a mansion without letting anyone guess that you are responsible. Interesting concept right? From the looks of things it’s taking a leaf or two out of Agent 47′s notebook, and has nods to The Exorcist and The Shining in this sinister trailer from Gamescom:
