    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 is certainly not for everyone. Someone who values gameplay much higher than storytelling will come away feeling bored and frustrated with the overall experience. However, those who value a game's plot and the emotions that games can elicit will never be able to shake Omori from their headspace. It is a flawed game in many aspects, but I can't help thinking about it throughout my daily life (especially while opening up the spice cabinet), even having finished the game over a month ago. While the entire middle of the game can be frustrating due to its poor design, the third act is well worth everything that comes before it. In the end, everything else faded away, and it all felt worth it.

    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.

    Oh my god, this game... is like, THE MOST BEAUTIFUL rpg game i ever played.

    The tragic story of this game hit me right in the heart, the characters were too much relatable, every music track from this game is a banger, really cute and terryfing (in a positive way) artstyle.

    And... as a person that randomly starts daydreaming every time i listen to music i like, the headspace segments inside Sunny's head got me surprised, i just, never seen a game describe perfectly how it feels to daydream about random stuff.

    10/10, this a must play... but before going in and play it, be aware that this a game about depression and anxiety, so, stay away from it if you are sensitive and don't want to deal with topics like these.

    There's little wrong with this game.
    On the surface, OMORI has a beautiful art style and aesthetic. AMAZING music, almost competing with Undertale's soundtrack. In terms of the game itself...
    The story itself doesn't disappoint on its promises. This game has really good writing. You could argue that there's a few pacing issues but, generally, the story flows very naturally and is relatively real and believable. Great, likable characters. I do think that one character has a particularly cliche backstory and doesn't make a lot of sense, but that's really my only complaint.

    I think one of the only cons with this game are the RPG mechanics, which many people have found to be boring or unoriginal. I don't really care for game mechanics themselves and appreciate a good, well-written story much more than that, hence why I really like this game.

    I recommend going in as blind as possible for the best experience, and also getting the game yourself. I watched a playthrough but I now wish that I just bought it so I could get my own feel for the gameplay and, since there are multiple of them, get an ending naturally.

    Fair warning: PLEASE read the trigger warnings before playing. It really messed me for quite a few days. It gets extremely dark and I was not prepared for it. Don't judge a book by it's cover; it gets seriously morbid and it's probably the most upsetting and messed-up thing I've ever played.
