Hello again, adventurer! After sitting alone in my office for 5 years pounding on my keyboard, it feels very surreal to finally be able to say that my very first game, omno, is now available for Xbox One and Xbox Series XIS, and with Xbox Game Pass for console and PC.
For those who have never seen it omno is a single player adventure game in which you travel as a pilgrim through an ancient world of wonders in search of a mythical gate of light. It’s an exploration and traversal game that requires you to use platforming and puzzle solving skills to move your way through each world.
Over time, you will acquire new skills that all celebrate the joy of exercise – be it whizzing over steep precipices, surfing over sand dunes or gliding through the clouds. omno is also designed as a calm, gentle experience: there is no fight, instead you will interact with all the strange and fantastic creatures you encounter, each rewarding you for your kindness and curiosity, often in surprising ways!
omno started as a dream for me many, many years ago, and seeing it in the Microsoft Store and alongside some of my all time favorite games in the Xbox Game Pass catalog still feels like a dream to me. As a first time solo developer, imposter syndrome is very real right now, but I’m also very proud to have finally got this thing over the finish line.
There are a lot of great games coming out every week right now (and I look forward to having the time to play new games myself!), But I really hope some of you will find the time to try it out omno. I’m both shocked and very curious to see what people think of it!
