Developer Spearhead Games has announced via the PlayStation Blog that action adventure game Omensight will be launching next month, with the release date set for May 15th on both PlayStation 4 and PC. Those planning on purchasing the game on PS4 and are PS Plus subscribers will get a 20% pre-order discount, with pre-orders going live tomorrow.
Spearhead Games previously developed Stories: The Path of Destinies, and Omensight takes the branching narrative structure of that game and takes it in new directions. The choices that the player makes will carry more weight, seeing as the objective is tied to solving a murder mystery. “You will need to pay attention to the hints and clues provided by fellow companions, who are all involved in the murder of the Godless-Priestess Vera in some way. This will help you make the right decisions to progress in your investigation.”
The following is a breakdown of the game’s key features via the Steam Page:
- Manipulate Time – An innovative narrative experience, seamlessly blending interactive story with action gameplay. Witness the outcome of events from different perspectives, and affect the outcomes through your actions.
- Investigate A Mystery – Join a diverse cast of characters with mysterious roles to play in Urralia’s story – and each other’s.
- Change Fate – Learn key information about specific characters, then help or hinder them to prevent the end of the world.
- Save Urralia – Fight using fluid, stylish combat that combines swordplay, magical abilities and time-manipulation.
Omensight will launch for PlayStation 4 and PC on May 15th. You can check out a nine-minute gameplay video with developer commentary below.
