From the Creators of Stories: Path of Destinies
Here’s a new game that innovates on narrative. Presenting Omensight, a new IP from Spearhead Games. The makers of Path of Destinies have been working hard on a new title that will expand on their signature time-manipulation mechanics, and it will be playable at PAX South.
In Omensight you are the Harbinger, a skilled warrior who exists outside of time. Because of this unique trait, you can investigate the stories that had a hand in the destruction of Urralia. With the world destroyed and a murder as your only lead, you’re practically this time-manipulating detective. Except, you’re more warrior than anything else. As you investigate the lives of people before the end of the world, you decide who is your enemy and who is your ally. Then, combine time-manipulation spells with sword techniques to eliminate threats. It’s like the Quantum Break of indies.
Information in Omensight will unfold as you discover the world through different perspectives. Essentially, the story is a puzzle with a multitude of pieces in the form of personal lives. One character may reveal a revelation about another, and in the process, you develop your own relationships. Where they will lead is something else.
“When we released Stories: The Path of Destinies in 2016, we were thrilled with the response to its narrative structure,” says Malik Boukhira, Creative Director on Omensight. “Players told us how they enjoyed manipulating time to collect all the different endings in the game. With Omensight, our new original title set in a fresh universe, we’re taking this idea one step further. What we like to call the ‘narrative puzzle’ will extend to a range of diverse characters in Omensight, and we can’t wait to see how players navigate the intricacies of these characters’ actions and reactions to solve the mystery of Urralia’s demise.”
Information is scarce at this point, but we’ll keep you updated on the release date and platforms for Omensight. Right now, we know that several talents are lending themselves to this project, as revealed in a press release:
Patricia Summersett (The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild) and Julian Casey (We Happy Few) are among the talented group lending their voices to Omensight’s characters. Omensightalso has a stellar writing team including Nadim Boukhira (Stories: The Path of Destinies) and Genese Davis (The Holder’s Dominion), with Chris Avellone (Fallout: New Vegas, Torment: Tides of Numenera, Prey) assisting with the script.
