Lucius Looking Spooky In E3 Trailer

I can’t imagine being born on June 6th 1966 would work out well for anyone, all those hints of 666 and the Devil, that date of birth certainly hasn’t worked out well for Lucius, star of the game named after him. Lucius is a horror game being made by Shiver Games which will put you in the shoes of young Lucius, the son of the Devil himself.

It all sounds quite spooky, so if you dare, check out the trailer after the jump to find out more.
