The fantasy world of Urralia has been destroyed, all of its inhabitants dead, the end of the world as you know it. This is the vision of The Harbinger, a powerful warrior who has the ability to manipulate time. With this vision fresh in your head and the only lead pointing to a mysterious murder, you must set out bring a brighter end to the impending doom you have foreseen.
Progressing in the narrative rich story of Omensight will see you playing through fateful events from different perspectives. By learning different characters interactions with one another and what motive they serve to the bigger picture, you’ll need to decide whether you’ll fight with them, or against them.
As you’d expect with a game based on fate, almost all of your decisions are consequential and have the potential to alter the outcome of the story. Luckily for you, you have the ability to rewrite time, meaning that almost ever poor decision can be reversed. How this ability in implemented will no doubt be key to the effectiveness of Omensight’s story. In my head, I can only imagine it will play like the original Life is Strange rewind time mechanic, which isn’t a bad thing.
If your heading to PAX South this weekend then you can check out Omensight for yourself, this is the first time the game will be playable to the public. Developers Spearhead Games previous title was the brilliant Stories: Path of Destinies, so they have a proven record that they can deliver on the narrative front.
There is no set release date for Omensight, although it has been confirmed for a 2018 release on PC, we’ll have to wait to hear about consoles.
