Anything fun is just a distraction from how much the world actually sucks...
OMORI is an up-and-coming RPG from artist Omocat, based off of her comic of the same name. It tells the story of a young NEET
named Omori, as he goes about his daily life living in an enormous white expanse.
A depressed individual, he rarely gets out of bed, and when he does it's only to go on the internet or to grab a tissue. His eccentric and fun-loving neighbors, on the other hand, rarely sleep and their technicolor dreamworld
repulses Omori, though he admits to liking them, somewhat. One day he finally works up the courage to try to experience their way of life. Eventually, Omori must make a decision on which world is real
; the empty, lonely White Space, or the bright, insane world of his neighbors.
Developed and launched on Kickstarter, Omori is a surreal, horror RPG that takes heavy references from other RPG's, most notably Earthbound. it has currently been funded, with several of it's stretch goals met, including a full Japanese localization, due to the heavy popularity over there. Music by Space Boyfriend
and Slime Girls
