[18 Oct 23] – LUCID was recently funded on Kickstarter (200%) – you can watch their launch trailer below.

  • Tight controls are the foundation of LUCID’s design.  As an extension of the player, Oenn is a joy to handle. While you navigate the platforming puzzles and master the airborne combat you will enter the oh-so sought after flow state.
  • Learn powerful new abilities known as Crystal Arts, like the Crystal Blade, Crystal Spear, and Crystal Axe! Each Crystal Art modifies mobility and enhances combat in different ways, offering a range of player expression for travsersing the world and vanquishing your foes.
  • Play LUCID your way. Choose to focus on your favorite two Crystal Arts, or master the quick swap and become a jack of all trades. Unearth and craft dozens of Talismans that alter how Oenn fights and moves. Equip Talisman Sets that grant bonus effects, and strategize the perfect synergistic build for your playstyle.
  • Upgrade your Bracers and Crystal Arts! Collect Crystal Shards and Rare Materials scattered throughout the land. Use these resources to enhance your Bracers by expanding their Talisman Slots and empower your Crystal Arts by Anointing them.
  • Uncover the mysteries of the world known as Aedyn! Vast and interconnected, you can decide when to ascend the frigid Onyx Ridge, traverse the glittering Crystal Caverns, or descend into the gloom of Welltown. Find and create new paths to biomes thought to be fully completed to obtain new treasures and secrets.
  • Intense Boss Battles! On your quest you will encounter many dangerous foes. These formidable opponents will test your skills and awareness. Use your accumulated knowledge and prowess to conquer these awe-inspiring adversaries and advance further in your quest.
  • Encounter a diverse and vibrant cast of characters, from the close-knit Sentinels in the Petrified Forest to the down-and-out slumdogs of Beacon City. Each character you meet has a story of their own, and it’s up to Oenn to help them restore the balance in their lives as he seeks to heal a fractured world.
