    Default Omikron: The Nomad Soul

    Has anyone played this? It looks interesting and I was considering picking it up.

    I tried the PC demo over ten years ago. I liked the concept but my PC couldn't run it.

    Is that the Dreamcast one? I used to have it and thought it was quite interesting, but also quite strange. I didn't get very far into it. Another Dreamcast game, Blue Stinger seemed to feel very similar to Omikron. I don't even know what kind of games these are classified as. Maybe adventures?

    I played it for a bit and liked it, but never had a chance to fully get into it. Someone on here tracked the Dreamcast version down for me, but sadly it wasn't in working condition.

    A unique experience and worth checking out. The price is cheap, I totally recommend it.

    I keep trying to play it on my DC, but it progresses at a snail's pace and fails to maintain my interest much beyond 15-30 minutes. I literally started dozing off last time I tried. It's sad because back in the DC's day it was one of the games I wanted most of all. Sigh...

    Is this the one you could transfer your soul to other people? I'm pretty sure it was awesome when I played it. Worth a try, it's unique.

    Aye, but not to be confused with Messiah.

    Apparently the PC version can still be persuaded to run on XP. I have my own copy stashed away somewhere still.

    It's a decent adventure marred by poor controls and clunky combat sequences. Imagine cyberpunk Shenmue except with broken fighting sequences and first person shooting segments ripped from the worst shooters.

    Ever since I found out it was the first game by the people that made Indigo Prophecy I have wanted to play it.

    If you can get into this game, you have patience much superior to mine. It had a good premise, and Bowie IIRC, but that was it. The rest was dull and lifeless.

    I take it this has little in common with the later works by Quantic Dream?
