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...

Conjure plans and plot to kill everyone! While the story suffers a little bit, the gameplay makes up for it. Picking off family members one by one through a series of "unfortunate events". With one accident after another, this game is devilishly fun with a very dark humor. Not for the faint of heart!
Poorly executedMarkDeejay | April 16, 2014 | See all MarkDeejay's reviews »
A great idea, executed in a not-so-great way. That is Lucius, a horror-focused action adventure. So, the idea is great; a free roam game where you get to kill people like in those famous horror movies we've all seen. You'll be using items and powers to kill off these people. It's not all that straightforward though. You have to solve little puzzles to complete objectives. And every time you complete one of these objectives you're one step closer to killing a certain someone. But it's all executed in a mediocre way; the inventory is cumbersome to use, but manageable. The 'stealth' missions are terrible; there's no way to see where a certain character is so you'll bump into someone frequently. And sometimes the hints you get just aren't clear enough, which results in you doing the wrong thing. And when it's Game Over you have to start the mission all over again (including sidequests).
It's an interesting idea though. And I would love to see a(n improved) sequel someday.

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.
