Retro Encounter 418 – Omori Part I

Retro Encounter 418 Omori

But my dreams, they aren’t as empty / As my headspace seems to be

Content Warning: this podcast episode addresses many sensitive topics, including mental health issues and self-harm. 

Omori is an indie game that takes on dark themes such as depression, anxiety, trauma, and loss in a thoughtful, poignant manner. But it’s also chock-full of subversive humor and game mechanics that manipulate emotional states to create interesting puzzles both in navigation and combat. Four Retro Encounter panelists discuss the early hours of Omori, from its unique tone and mechanics to speculation on its endgame (to be addressed in part II!). Give it a listen! 

Featuring: Michael Sollosi, Hilary Andreff, Audra Bowling, Jimmy Turner; Edited by Michael Sollosi

Opening and ending music by Miles Morkri
