Upcoming Metroidvania Game 'LUCID’ Surpasses Funding Goal on Kickstarter
Apogee Entertainment and solo developer Eric Manahan have announced that their new Metroidvania game, LUCID, has secured over 200% funding on Kickstarter ahead of its planned release on Nintendo Switch in 2025. The game has garnered attention not only for its successful crowdfunding campaign but also for enlisting the renowned composer David Wise to create the score.
David Wise, known for his work on iconic Nintendo titles such as Donkey Kong Country and Super Smash Bros. Melee, will lend his musical talents to LUCID. This collaboration brings high expectations for the game’s soundtrack, adding to the anticipation surrounding its release.
Described as a „Celestoidvania,” LUCID offers players an immersive experience as they venture through enchanting landscapes, including shimmering caverns, snow-covered ridges, and barren badlands. The game features unique gameplay mechanics such as Crystal Arts, which allows for double-jumps and aerial dashes, enabling access to hidden areas. Players can also switch abilities on the fly to unleash powerful special attacks against agile enemies and formidable bosses.
Although the release date for LUCID is still years away, its promising concept and the involvement of a celebrated composer have generated significant excitement within the gaming community. As the development progresses, more details about the game’s target release date are expected to be revealed in the near future.
For those interested in supporting LUCID, there is still time to contribute to its Kickstarter campaign. Whether the game lives up to its potential remains to be seen, but the combination of a captivating Metroidvania experience and a stellar soundtrack has undoubtedly captured the attention of gamers worldwide.
