Lucius II: The Prophecy has been in development by Shiver Games for close to two years -- since the release of Lucius, in fact.
The gameplay and feel of Lucius II has been improved by adding features many felt were missing from the original. Johannes Aikio of Shiver Games: “The main goal has been to add more freedom and to deliver a sandbox-type setting for the murderous kid. Be ready to use your creativity for inflicting pain and suffering, because this time the restrictions are gone and the sins have multiplied!”
The story of Lucius II starts where the original left off. Lucius is the lone survivor of the burning wreckage his parents once called home, unscathed by the ruthless slaughter he had unleashed. He had taken the weak and punished the wicked. He had looked through their souls and found the true selves they had been hiding.
Lucius is taken to the psychiatric ward of St. Benedict’s Hospital by unsuspecting caretakers. The Book of Revelation predicts the birth of a child who will rule the world with an iron rod. The first part of this prophecy has been fulfilled. It is time to take care of the rest. Whispers of a prophecy find their way to the boy's ears. Lucius decides to act again to regain his powers. But unknown to him, he'll have new adversaries...
Lucius II: The Prophecy will be fulfilled in early 2015 for PC.
