His childish innocence wasn’t meant to last long, oh no... When little Lucius was born on the meaningful date of June 6th, 1966, nobody expected him to be anything other than a normal little boy. His childhood, spent in a luxurious manor was as normal as every kid’s young years - well, except for the extreme wealth of his parents, as Lucius grew up with everything he desired, including several maids, the family’s own butcher and a private teacher.
Everything changed, though, when Lucius turned 6. His real father, the Devil, appeared in his dreams the night before his birthday, revealing that Lucius was his son. The Beast , through Lucius, managed to bring a descendant back to the earth - and so it is Lucius’ task now to accomplish the missions of the Devil and gain control over the world. But firstly, Lucius must get rid of all his family members and the service staff in the manor to be able to make their wealth and powers his.
Equipped with supernatural powers, Lucius starts off on a blood- flooding tour of horror through his house, using hell’s powers of telekinesis and mind control to orchestrate deadly accidents that will minimize the population of the manor one by one by one. However, this he must carry out without suspicion and so begins what looks like just an unfortunate set of accidents...

This game is surprisingly fun.Well if you like killing people sort of fun.But who doesn't ( i mean in games).You play as this boy, Lucius who is visited by the devil who makes him kill everybody in the house.Speaking of the house,it's pretty big and you could get confused or lost at some times.In the beginning you are given a task, to kill a person in the house.The ways you kill every person is unique and kinda awesome because you have supernatural powers like telekinesis and mind control.The developers could have done more with the game like different powers and more ways to kill your targets and well the mechanics of the game.
Fun, but definitely made on a low budgetBlockAgent | Dec. 8, 2013 | See all BlockAgent's reviews »
Lucius is a fun game and unlike other games I have played. Without wanting to give anything away, you proceed the game by claiming souls for the devil as a child who is possessed. The ways in which you do this are both gruesome and creative. But sometimes the games low budget shows through. I noticed several graphical and programming glitches while playing. None of them affected the playability of the game however. Sometimes the game doesn't give you enough instruction or help on what to do or where to go. A little more instruction or a hint feature would have been nice. The graphics are ok, nothing special, but nothing bad. Overall a decent budget game.
While somewhat flawed, totally worth it.blackrose | Nov. 4, 2013 | See all blackrose's reviews »
Like what the previous commenter said, this theme is sort of like Rosemary's Baby. It's also got a little bit of the omen thrown in for good measure. The best part is, there aren't many games where you intentionally play as the villain, while in this one, you do. You have numerous choices on how to play, you can be subtle, or you can eventually say "forget subtlety" and go on a murderous rampage. The ways to kill are staggering, and, trust me when I say this, not for the faint of heart. A great game that earns a 7.5 out of 10 or, here, 75/100.
Decent horror-themed gamemahon | Oct. 25, 2013 | See all mahon's reviews »
Lucius is an interesting game. With very unusual theme, which every Rosemary's Baby or Children of the Corn fan would love, it seemed extremely promising. I got it and must say I liked it. It's a good game with decent graphics, good concept and not bad gameplay. If you don't know the overall idea, it's about a killer child who is seeking different ways to kill adults. Unfortunately it's not a perfect horror game. My disappointment is caused by the fact that it could easily be so much better. The story could keep you interested for longer, and the gameplay could be less repetitive. With this in mind, I think it's a good thing the game is not longer. It leaves you at the point where you're still having fun with it, and just before it gets boring or tedious. So for the several hours of decent horror-themed gaming, this is a pretty good choice.
