Omno is a game about a little onion-shaped adventurer travelling around an “ancient world of wonders” on an epic quest to discover… something. That something includes frogs, giants, crabs, and plenty of puzzle-platforming. And, rather impressively, it’s a one-man project, with German developer Jonas Manke at the helm (and, er, all the other parts of the ship).
Looking at the trailer, we’re very much getting Journey-meets-Xenoblade-meets-Sable vibes, which sounds ideal for anyone looking for a chill, cosy, “sit back and relax” kind of game. Plus, the Steam reviews love it:
“Omno is visually stunning with its gorgeous art style, has an inventive approach to introducing game mechanics seamlessly, and has a relaxing soundtrack that accompanies the game-play perfectly.”
“This game was honestly phenomenal. I’m not a fan of puzzles AT ALL but this game it was simplistic yet beautiful. I truly was mesmerised by this game and how incredible it felt from start to finish.
Not once was it boring. Not once did I feel like it was repetitive or annoying. It just felt like perfection and the music.
OH BOY, THE MUSIC! SOOOOOOOO GOOD!”
Omno will come out on the Nintendo Switch on the 16th December.
