Lucasarts Unveils Lucidity, An Original Platformer

Perhaps aware of criticism that Lucasarts only survives by milking Star Wars and Indiana Jones dry, the company has tonight unveiled on GTTV a brand new puzzler/platformer called Lucidity.

Starring a young girl by the name of Sophie, Lucidity will be out on Xbox Live later this month, and is part 2D platformer, part 2D puzzler. Instead of controlling Sophie, players assume command of the level, altering it so that Sophie - who wanders around controlled by AI - can get through it.

It's certainly not what you'd expect from Lucasarts circa 2009. Which is probably the point.

Braid, Shadow Complex and now this... It seems like the only games that are actually tempting me to buy a 360 are cheap downloadable ones. Sadly it's a bit of an expense just for those.

But at least the advent of downloadable console games has made 2D games profitable again outside of handhelds. The less focus developers have on generic "realistic" shooters the better.
