In honor of David Bowie’s passing, Square Enix is giving away Steam keys for Omikron: The Nomad Soul, which he starred in and wrote music for. The offer is “while supplies last” and runs through January 22. US players should use this link, European players should use this link. Both require the code “omikron.”
I was familiar with the work of David Bowie from a young age, but I didn’t fall in love with the man and his work until 1999. That was when I played Omikron: The Nomad Soul, a video game that changed the way I felt about David Bowie entirely.
David Bowie, who just died of cancer aged 69, had an incalculable impact on pop culture throughout his shape-shifting career. But perhaps more than any other musician, he also had a tremendous impact on science fiction. He changed the way we thought about the alien, the uncanny, and the familiar.

Tomorrow, Commander Chris Hadfield bids farewell to the International Space Station, meaning we won't get our usual dose of his tweets and videos sent from space. But he's signing off with a little David Bowie.
You know, no big. Just another day. We got a cool new video from Anamanaguchi. And oh hey also, a single from a little-known singer named DAVID BOWIE.
This is Bowie's "Space Oddity" via Star Fox. With puppets!
Okay, that's not fair. Duncan Jones is more than just David Bowie's son. He's also the son of fashion model Angela Bowie.
