December 25 on Steam
Six years after showing up on Kickstarter, the psychological horror RPG Omori has a release date that seems like it’ll stick: December 25, 2020. It’s going to make the end-of-year cutoff on Steam.
The production has stretched far enough that I forgot I covered this before on Destructoid. It’s one of those games. No matter, though – the 2020 trailer is a nice reminder of how far Omori has come.
Even if I’m not entirely sold on the world-exploration gameplay, I like the color palette, and I’m sure it’ll get the job done with Omocat’s storytelling. The more elaborate battle-screen artwork looks fantastic.
According to the Steam listing, “themes of death and depression” await us. The trailer alone packs some emotional weight, so I’m generally hopeful. Console ports, including Nintendo Switch, are in the works.
