    Having played through OMORI, I’m confident say that it’s an experience I won’t forget. This is a game I wholeheartedly recommend for those that appreciate a good story. With a strong emphasis on catharsis, it has a lot up its sleeves. The cutesy and colorful presentation hides a grim reality and it hits hard. Highly recommended, OMORI is a gem of a game that definitely deserves recognition.

    Don’t let its presentation fool you, Omori is an adventure into some dark themes of loss, growing up, and fear of change. These are easily relatable elements uniquely projected to players through its expert story presentation and character writing. You feel yourself immersed in this world and with these people to the point where you want so bad to see their adventure through until the end. Luckily for us, this is one experience that you can’t easily grow out of.

    Nostalgic, lovingly crafted, moving, and surprising, Omori is a remarkable achievement. Earthbound and Undertale are easy comparisons, but Omori stands out as it's own, highly personal piece of storytelling.

    Omori's ending is brutal, but its characters and humour put some heart behind the horror.

  1. Owing to its unconventional release date, Omori hasn’t really been on the mainstream radar, but I came away impressed. It takes a story that might have come off as trite or even insensitive in the wrong hands and imbues it with a memorable darkness, aided by a tight combat system and some outstanding artwork. If you’re in a bad place - and lord knows many of us are - Omori might not be the game for you right now, as it goes in some intense places. But neither should you let this dark tale of a childhood lost slip away. Bleak as it might be, it may be one of the year’s most memorable RPGs.

    Honestly, one of the best digital narrative experiences currently available for purchase, standing alongside Nier Automata, Undertale and Lisa.

The twist at the end and the slowburn of discovering new pieces of information was phenomenal. The gameplay is a bit easy at the start but you’ll (maybe) find yourself struggling with the final bosses or if you go for the Omori or “Another” route, you really need to grind for that. For me playing this game was a very unique and heartbreaking experience, please give this game a chance. Expand

The artwork andWhen people compared this game to Undertale, I went into it with high hopes. Initially, I started out liking this game. The artwork and animations were beautiful, the music was great, the characters and dialogue were adorable, and the story was initially engaging. The initial horror aspects and mystery were definitely a selling point for me. I believe that this game started out very, very strong. I can't say the same for the rest of the game.

    As the game slugged on, I found myself losing interest. The gameplay was boring, the main plot dragged on so slowly, and these unnecessary subplots kept being interjected in to drag it out even longer. I had to force myself to continue playing just to get more of the main plot. Eventually, the main plot let me down, as well.

    The "big truth reveal" was unclear, boring, and not subversive. It was something we've all seen a hundred times before in other games and films. Finishing this game did not offer anything new. It was an incredibly huge let down, especially after how strong the game started. Furthermore, there are numerous plot holes that made the story frustrating and difficult to believe or immerse myself in. Even after watching through playthroughs and figuring out what I missed, these plot holes STILL remained, and that's a huge fault to me.

    Overall, the game had an underwhelming ending, dragged out much longer than it needed to, and plot holes that left me feeling frustrated. The artwork and music was amazing and I would recommend supporting the artists behind that. But as a game and storyline to play and engage in, I personally wouldn't recommend it.
