UPDATED with more accurate release info and a video.

LucasArts today stepped outside its Star Wars-shaped box and unveiled Lucidity, a 2D puzzle/platformer in which players will control the environment as a young girl named Sophie wanders around controlled by the computer.

The game was unveiled on Gametrailers TV, and it will debut on Xbox LIVE and PC on Oct. 7 later this month.

The graphics, inspired by classical animation and paper textures, are gorgeous and the gameplay concept — while apparently similar to that of last year’s WiiWare title LostWinds is certainly intriguing. This is one to watch.

  • This is what the adventure game genre truly needs. The graphic design in this game is just far beyond any video games current story telling capabilities alone, this game already shows a certain quality about it absent in most other genres, if not all genres. The atmosphere and life it gives to it’s focused genre walks other most contributions to recent genres from different titles. Beautiful artistic style going on here that Lucas Arts should be proud of! From what little we see Lucas Arts already is proving that it can be the BOSS of story telling and adventure games. If Lucas Arts goes through with this then it’s going to revive the adventure game genre FULL FORCE.

    Nothing else comes close to the atmosphere and intellectual creative settings in this game. Nothing out there, these screens are very intellectual and creative, ingenious design. You can already see that this game is perfect for the genre it’s intended for and BY FAR exceeds other genres in intellectual story telling, this is by far a more conscious and comprehensive effort in story telling, by far more intellectual then any 3D shooter or any other sort that’s come out as of late.

    This game has my utter excitement, you can tell already that it’s solid and well thought out. This is an innovative and brilliant idea to bring back intellectual adventure/puzzle solving games.

    Not only is this purely an adventure game by first sight but it takes the genre to a whole new level that rivals far above most current genres of video gaming.

    There’s good games and then there’s masterpieces titles that can redefine a genre for decades, this game looks like a masterpiece classic in the works.
