So what is Omori?
Omori is a kickstarter game that got successfully funded back in June of 2014, and was released on Christmas Day 2020. You can currently play it on steam, though console versions are in the works. The game is based off of old blogs, sketches, and stories written by OMOCAT (the main dev of this game).
What's the general gist of this game?
We will play as Omori, a depressed young boy who goes on adventures with his friends before reality comes crashing down. The game is very heavily inspired by earthbound and mother 3 likes ala Undertale, Lisa, Off, and Jimmy & The Pulsating Mass. There's also a bit of Yume Nikki influences too... which ties into the warning I posted above. I would definitely say this game is pretty close to Jimmy and the Pulsating Mass, though that game didn't fuck with my head quite as much. Speaking of which...
So what's with the scary warning?
This game is classified as an indie horror game on steam and there's moments where I definitely do not feel comfortable playing it (in a good way). I really want to get across that if you are not in a good state of mind, this game may be something you avoid until you get in a better place. Majority of the things I would consider "Uncomfortable" come later in the game, but I'm still warning you now just to be safe.This game owns, but please take care of yourself in these troubled times.
How does the game play?
It's an Earthbound-like. Turn based combat with the game's own spin to try and hold your attention for... 30 hours.
What's the form of this LP?
Screenshots for most of it, videos for boss fights/important moments. I will likely be abridging gameplay sections except where story-relevant. I also likely won't mention what npc # 5 had to say about the weather because I swear that alone drove me crazy in previous LPs.
This game is 29 days old as of this OP. Keep spoiler discussion LIGHT and if you do talk spoilers EVEN SLIGHTLY then use the black bars please. If you're unsure, either don't post it until it happens or keep it under spoiler tags with a brief warning of what part of the game you're spoiling (early, middle, end) If you spoil someone on this game I will personally kick you into the shadow realm.
If I'm reading from the archive, anything I should know?
There used to be parts of the updates that were linked inside the updates, that have been moved to the Supplemental Updates section, which are located at the bottom of this page. Feel free to come back here during the middle of the update or at the end of the update and read the supplemental part - don't worry, in every case it's just a bunch of images that I didn't want to overload the page with.
