Upcoming Games by Lucid

Why do some CoG authors (like the author of Zombie Exodus) still post games in the HG brand instead of CoG then?
Also how do you become a CoG author?


I think HG has less stringent regulations and they usually release faster than ones that go through CoG proper.


I would assume that you have more freedom in HG. And to become a CoG author, I think you need to have some titles under HG.


You can pitch an idea to CoG ahead of time and then work with them to completion (if they like and accept your idea.)

I gave a small pitch for Lost Heir to become a CoG game, but we didn’t see eye-to-eye on exactly what they wanted. They have a very specific esthetic that they want for their games and my idea was too different. In the end, I didn’t want to change my style, so I published the trilogy over on Hosted. I suppose that it was “artistic differences.”

I imagine @JimD felt the same. He likely wanted to make his own game in his own way, so he stuck with Hosted too.

Some people write in both categories for this reason. I made many changes to my style for Last Wizard, so we’ll see if it’s close enough to CoG’s esthetics to win. Either way, I think it’s a really good game, so I think it will be enjoyed when it releases.


and it’s great that you didn’t change your style, because they are the best ones! :grinning::+1:

The wizard from Life of a Wizard will enter the Lost Heir’s story through the Legacy DLC, which I am currently writing and may release in June,

Will the events of the Lost Heir enter the Last Wizard’s story? Yes. Will your character? No.

Will all previous characters show up in Hero of Daria? That game is on hold, so I don’t know. That’s a decision for the future. :slight_smile:

Short Answer: It was a long time ago and the wizard used a different spell than what the Consortium uses.

Long Answer with Spoilers From Lost Heir: Many years before the Lost Heir or Life of a Wizard takes place, the Som’Reth tried to take advantage of this demon realm, so they crossed over in full body and soul. Their plan worked and they gained every power that they could imagine, but they didn’t anticipate that they would lose their humanity in the process.

In the time of the Lost Heir, the Consortium had uncovered many old Som’Reth ruins and used their magic to summon demons. The demons summoned are a combination of old demons and new Som’Reth demons. There is still a question as to who the original demons were. There’s a good chance that the Life of a Wizard character was summoning a third type of demon from a different plane altogether.


thanks you thats intressting kinda sounds like your character in life of wizard is kinda op. now that i think about it if my wizard sleep with the princess then my character in heir of daria would be his descendant?


Yes! In fact, you’ve just stumbled into the main plot connection of the new Legacy Advantage IAP that I’m working on! :wink:

For those that don’t follow me on Facebook:

Lots of things going on! Make sure you read the whole post. :slight_smile:

I’m very excited and proud to announce that I will be working with @Eric_Moser : Fiction by Eric Moser: Fearless Heroes, Endless Thrills​ and @JimD : Games by JimD​ on a joint promotion. We’ll be giving away free games from our libraries! Keep checking in for details.

The Legacy Advantage is coming! Through an IAP in Lost Heir 1, the famous wizard from Elmvale (from Life of a Wizard) will return to help the lost heir. This will give the heir a head-start with regards to skills and introduce an interesting new story which will intertwine through all three stories. Working hard on it. It should be ready for July.

Don’t forget the Daria Map Making Contest which runs to May 31st, 2018. Check this post for details.

Remember to send an “Add me” email to lucid519@gmail.com to join my mailing list and get a link to a short, free game. I’ll only send email for free stuff and when new games of mine release.

And finally, I am pleased to say that The Last Wizard is in post-production. It should release sometime in the summer. It’s off to the copy editor and the icon image is being designed. Thanks for your patience!

Lots of cool stuff going on. :slight_smile:


Wait didn’t the wizard die like hundreds of years before the heir was born?
