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...

First lets start where the game shines, it's atmosphere. It's dark, it creeps you out and at first you just want to keep playing. Then, after the first ten minutes, after your first kill, the game goes downhill very fast. I spent the next half hour doing some chores, like "cleaning the bedroom", which felt pointless and trying to figure out how to kill my next target. I failed. I have no clue what to do and have too much integrity to look for a walkthrough for the first actual level. The game fails to even point you in the right direction, so you are forced to start interacting with everything trying to accomplish anything. I like puzzles and even point & click games, but they tell you what you need, or at least a hint, here you have nothing and you will get bored really fast. Can't recommend it.
Lucius is a game where you control this kid, which then you know is the son of Lucifer, who makes you do horrible things to your "family". The game has a really heavy theme, which is not good for everybody, because there is a lot of cruel and bizarre things that you have to do to the people who live in your house. The quality of the game is very cheap, but anyway it has a good gameplay overall. The developers could have put more details into it so it would be better. Anyway, I do not recommend this to anyone, because the story behind it is very heavy and can be harmful to some people. It also may offend other people who are religious. The game itself is pretty good and unique, but could have been better.
In this game you control a boy named Lucius, who at 6 years of age discovers he is the son of Lucifer. Your goal is to kill all the people who lives in your home, to his fathe collect their souls and takes them to hell. The story is heavy, and as I said is a horror game. There's even a place for satanic rituals. The game environment is going on inside a mansion, which is very beautiful, and very well detailed. Walk around the house is very difficult without the help of the map, because it has many doors, and many places. The soundtrack of the game, is well suited to the mood of the game. I ended up enjoying it, although I do not really enjoyed this style of music. The gameplay is good, and any player can easily learn quickly how to play. The only problem I found on the controls was the power of telekinesis that sometimes hangs what makes the player feel extremely angry. If you know how to kill each of its targets, the game would last about 30 minutes. But you have to find items, explore the house, talk to everyone and this makes the game take longer. The game does not explain where you should go and what to look for, what makes you get time walking around the house. The game is very good, and I sincerely enjoyed and therefore recommend to all the game, but I will repeat: the game's atmosphere is very heavy.
Ok, this is going to be a tough one. Even though it's called 'horror' and 'stealth', Lucius is simple a strange / mad / kinda sick adventure game. Something new that's sure, but there's not much to be afraid of because you play as the devil himself. You don't have to walk around carefully, since you are a six year old boy. One minus. Maybe two. The graphics are nothing you haven't seen about 12 years ago. This title is definitely not open-world, the setting is a manor, ok more floors and rooms, but yeah... The game has bugs here and there, and it doesn't have shiny physics either. Aaand the story. You kill everyone just because you were born on '66. 6. 6. and you start your career as a butcher at the age of 6. Oh don't let me forget, on the day you were born a ritual was held, so you're Lucifer's little boy. Yeah. And well sometimes somebody does something that this small guy doesn't like, his father needs the souls, aaand done. Some say it's entertaining, in my opinion it's more than unpolished. The gameplay too...Leave it. I'd recommend this game only for those, who like this theme, and want to play as a reaaally baaad kid. You should try it maybe on sale. Sorry guys, I tried to look at this game with the eye of one, who is into this genre and atmosphere I just simply couldn't. I think the potential was there hidden in a bush or a wardrobe. Even so it's a no from my side.
What I really like in Lucius is atmosphere. It's dark, it's perfect. Did you ever watched The Omen? If you did you can guess what kind of game it is. Quite sadly that there many imperfect thing that can destroy all this fun a little. There many bugs, graphics doesn't look so great and look like a game older than was made in in 2012 like Lucius. What's more annoying you will probably find yourself many times blocked at, for example, at doors. It's not a bad horror game but it really could be a little more polished. If you want to experience something dark and you doesn't mind bugs and errors, Lucius is a good choice.
