As genres are still blur across the gaming business, Cartoon programmer Spearhead Games is doing their very best to pioneer a genre they’re tagging the “story mystery game. ” In doing this, they’ve shown their latest project: Omensight. And depending on the announcement trailer alone, it seems like there’s a great deal to get excited about with the game.
Sporting a (apparently) comparable artstyle to Pyre, Omensight requires the expression revisionist history to a new extreme. Players take on the function of this “Harbringer,” that an extra-chronological being that is seeking to reverse the destiny of war-ravaged Urralia. Employing this power to change the previous — the “Omensight” — you’re able to meet up with key players in the worlds history, befriend (or maim) them, and adjust the fictional universe for the better.
While that all seems like the installment of a Telltale-like adventure narrative, Spearhead has noted that there will be combat inside the game. More especially, when the choices you turn off, the player will be able to use the Harbringer’s sword to control time-shifting magic.
The team developing Omensight aren’t novices to the field, and instead this project is behaving as an expansion of player notes by the programmer’s preceding games. Based on Creative Director Malik Boukhira:
When we released Stories: The Route of Destinies in 2016, we were thrilled with the response to its narrative structure. Players told us how they enjoyed manipulating time to collect all the different endings in the game.
In addition to that, however, the game features a voice-acting cast that draws from both The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Patricia Summersett — Princess Zelda) and We Happy Few (Julian Casey — Uncle Jack), as well as script-writing support in the lead writer of Fallout: New Vegas (Chris Avellone).
To kick off the statement, Spearhead Games has unveiled an announcement trailer that highlights the art direction, voice acting, and very basic dialogue of the narrative. It is possible to check out that trailer below.
Right now, the game is well known to get a PC-only release sometime in 2018. Check out the announcement trailer and gallery under:
