A teaser trailer showing off the graphical style of Othercide is available above, and today we learned the harsh strategic missions will include permadeath and limited resources in a time-bending story that spans eons.

Here’s what Focus Home Interactive had to say about the play style of the impending strategy game’s release:

Command an army of Daughters, haunting echoes of the greatest warrior to ever live, in deadly battles against horrific dread creatures and bosses birthed from the worst of humanity’s crimes. Interrupt enemy attacks while planning and setting up your own chain of actions later in the timeline to perform devastating assaults on your foes.

You can face your nightmares and protect reality in a brand new tactical horror RPG this summer when Othercide releases on Steam, PS4, and Xbox One. While we don’t have a confirmed release date yet, the Steam wishlist page is now online!
