Honestly really surprised that this game hasnt had a thread after all this time. Time to give it some justice! After 6 years since its kickstarter, OMO CAT is proud to present: Omori
Omori is a sprite based, turn based RPG that also doubles as a psychological and surreal horror game, switching between quirky and whimsical dreamscape to nightmarish visuals throughout the story. You play as Omori, a depressed young boy who hangs out with his dear friends: Kel, Aubrey, Hero, Basil, and his sister Mari. Soon after your adventure starts however, Basil disappeard, and you emb a rk on a journey to find him and also unravel the mysteries of White Space.
The game has been out for a few months so there are spoilers all over the place, so while it may be hard to do, its highly reccomended to play blind. FAIR WARNING THOUGH: This game has some very dark themes, such as suicide, anxiety, depression, and also contains flashing lights in later sections.

Iím happy this gameís getting a thread. So which do you prefer, the cheerful bits or the more depressing and/or scary bits?
I got this game a while back on Steam, but I have yet to play it. I definitely need to set some time aside to give it a go.
This game looks really good but falls into that Bojack Horseman paradox of being too good at capturing the emotion it wants to examine, to the point of triggering my own anxieties.
Which sucks because I really want to play it. The dreamland stuff looks really charming.
I was thoughly chsrmed by the dreamscape, but the darker bits also filled with a good amount of dread as well. Its a slowbake type of horror, but they also tuck thr most interesting parts behind it, so even if it makes you wince up you dive in anyway because its worth it.
EDIT:Do you guys think the dark mature themes prevent it from reaching as wide an audience as it could? It really is a magnificent game but still seems to be under the radar about 3 months into its lifespan. Like, Undertale had its dark moments for sure but they werent anywhere as In Your Face as this game is.

Was going back through watching some other people play through the game, and I was wondering about if there is a way to catch up on all the stuff that predates the Omori game. from what i understand Omori had a comic of sorts? or it was a blog where omori did all sorts of things in his dream world?
There was a tumblr blog Omoriboy, and some sketch art for Omori's story both feature a character very similar to Omori, and Omori's story has art with character and scenery very similar to the ones that appeared in the game. Omori's story never, as far as I know, got past the concept art stage, I think it was supposed to be a graphic novel before Omocat scrapped it in favor of making Omori.

Is it ok if I add individual enemy folders on the Headspace character page?
Since I know I'm not getting a response anytime soon, I'll just take y'all's silence as a "yes"
I mean, its not super necessary but sure i guess???
Omori is coming to Nintendo Switch next year!
Just started playing this game. The soundtrack is great. The Toby Fox cameo was a fun surprise.
