LucasArts announces “Lucidity”… Interesting? Dissappointing?
Well, as most people figured the big announcement that LucasArt made last night via GameTrailers.com was, of course, not Battlefront 3. Apparently LucasArts seems to think now is the time to head back to their “roots” and with the big success of their new Monkey Island game, and will be releasing “Lucidity”, which is a weird looking puzzle game. Not to knock it or anything, it does look interesting.
GameTrailers did get to sneak in some questions to LucasArts including the big, fat, tasty question which is “Where is Battlefront 3?”.
Q: What happened to Battlefront III?
A: We never announced that game. It’s something we’ll definitely consider in the future.
At least they havn’t dismissed the possibility of Battlefront 3, so we may just get it after all!!! There is hope!!!
They also asked what their plan was for the future of LucasArts. They replied:
Q: LucasArts vision for the future?
A: More Star Wars games as well as original IP.
“Earlier tonight on GameTrailers TV, LucasArts revealed their new IP and announced that they are going back to their roots. While Star Wars is still their bread and butter, they are trying to go back to the LucasArts of old.
Lucidity 2 In the 90’s, LucasArts was regarded as one of the top videogame developers. However, this has not been the case in recent years. But after the recent success of The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition, LucasArts decided to shut down for a week and brainstorm new ideas. What came out of this was Lucidity, a side scrolling puzzle-platformer. You play with Sophie, an adventurous little girl with a vivid imagination. You cannot control her, but you travel through her dreamscapes and place pieces in front of her, almost like Tetris.
The story of Lucidity revolves around Sophie and her grandmother. It is told through postcards and has 30 story levels and many more bonus levels. The game, which was inspired by Braid, will be released later this month on PC and Xbox LIVE Arcade.”
