LUCAH – Combat Design & Analysis:
While set in a surreal dreamscape of oppressive rituals and torment. LUCAH challenges players to survive the onslaught of nightmare manifestations. Mastering a deep and flashy combat system. So players will utilize customizable Mantras and Familiars to string together devastating combos. While laying waste to Nightmares with a kinetic flurry of beautiful action.
LUCAH’s interconnected world is thick with atmosphere and tension. A unique hand-drawn art style creates a surreal ambiguity. This derives from Silent Hill 2’s use of distance fog. This ambiguity lends the game an emotional potency that digs deep into the player’s mind by inviting them to project their thoughts and insecurities onto the gameworld.
