Game About Sad Nerd Looks More Fun Than It Sounds

OMOCAT isn't just a rad art person. She's also making a game, one that you should check out if you like some other game called Earthbound.

She's doing the art, writing and directing the game, while getting some help with stuff like music.

Game About Sad Nerd Looks More Fun Than It Sounds

The game's called OMORI, and is based on an old comic/character who's basically a very sad otaku. It takes place across two worlds, and is a "psychological horror". OMORI also has the best official description:

DIRECTED, WRITTEN, and ILLUSTRATED by the artist OMOCAT

ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK by SLIME GIRLS and SPACE BOYFRIEND

8+ DUNGEONS to explore and 60+ UNIQUE NPCs to meet and get to know

THE JUKEBOX QUEST (A side-quest where the player can collect tracks from different musicians/bands to play in the Jukebox at Gino's Diner)

Ability to choose your gender and name every member of your party

A traditional turn-based battle system with untraditional statuses and states based off real human emotions and conditions

WAVES OF UNRELENTING NOSTALGIA

A bunch of (un)necessary detail

Memorable characters…?

Really long gameplay

A room full of cats

It's already smashed its Kickstarter goal, but hey, it looks cool and there are cool people working on it, so the more money the better.
