Omocat’s surreal horror RPG Omori was released over the holidays in 2020, making it easy for many to overlook. Now that it launches on consoles – Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One – on June 17, there’s another chance to catch up with the cult hit.
Omori was originally announced for consoles during a December 2021 broadcast of Nintendo Indie World.
The game has drawn comparisons to both YumeNikki and earthbound, and it’s a turn-based RPG that’s both exciting and emotional. through Omoriplayers control four different characters who travel between worlds. Development began years ago after the game raised $203,300 on Kickstarter – well above its $22,000 goal.
Omori won two honorable mentions during the 2021 Independent Games Festival, and the game was praised for the way it deals with mental health, including anxiety, depression, and trauma.
