The end of days have arrived in digital form, with Spearhead Games’ Omensight. Now available on PlayStation 4 and Windows PC, it marries a murder-mystery formula with action/adventure gameplay mechanics.
In what is a very narrative-focused launch trailer, the developers (who previously created the impressive title, Stories: The Path of Destinies) have used both story and music to highlight their game’s goal. That is, averting the coming apocalypse in the land of Urralia by understanding its origins and heroically manipulating time.
“When Stories: The Path of Destinies was all set and done, we felt that there was much more left to explore with branching narratives and time-loops, that we had only scratched the surface of interactive storytelling in video games. We wanted to do more. Thus began an arduous, but gratifying, 18-month journey with 15 people, some Spearhead veterans and a lot of new blood. Our goal was to do much better than we did before – creating a deeper combat system, showing the world in a more cinematic way, and raising the stakes for the players. We put our all into Omensight and we hope players will enjoy playing it!” – Malik Boukhira, co-founder of Spearhead Games.
Omensight is currently available for $19.99 USD, and carries a launch week discount of 10%, on Steam.
