Hello, Playstation fans! After being coy every time someone asked about our release date at PAX East, we are so happy to finally announce that Spearhead Games‘ next action-adventure game, Omensight, will be released on 15th May.
The game will be part of Totally Digital and pre-orders will start tomorrow! To mark this very special occasion, we’ve released a brand-new trailer that you can check out below.
For us, Omensight takes the branching narrative structure of Stories: The Path of Destinies and spins it in an interesting new direction.
In Stories, our focus was to let players explore and play around with all the choices available to them. But in Omensight we decided that choices should matter even more, since the objective is tied to a murder mystery in which the world of Urralia is ending.
Players will need to pay attention to the hints and clues provided to them by their fellow companions, who are all in one way or another involved in the murder of the Godless-Priestess Vera, to make the right decisions to progress in their investigation.
Our team of writers – Nadim Boukhira and Genese Davis, with support by Chris Avellone – spent countless hours crafting an intricate story of conflict, loyalty, betrayal, conspiracy, mythology, time-loop, and murder for Omensight.
They really focused on each of the major characters to give them their own distinct personality and motivations, putting in extra care to sprinkle vital clues on who is Vera’s murderer in their dialogue.
Speaking of characters, we are so honoured to have worked with a fantastic cast of voice actors. Julian Casey, who gave a tour-de-force performance as the narrator in Stories, returns to voice the menacing Indrik, Emperor of Pygarian Empire.
Patricia Summersett, who’s appeared in multiple Ubisoft games and voiced Zelda in Zelda: Breath of the Wild recently, plays the honorable General Draga and the always-helpful Witch. Leda Davies really brought out the witty, playful side of Ratika, leader of rebels.
And last but not least, Lateef Martin is Ludomir in the game and in real life, a big guy with a heart of gold.
We hope you’ll enjoy the story and the characters of Omensight as much as we did bringing them to life when the game releases on 15th May!
