Set in a futuristic parallel universe in the domed city of Omikron, Omikron: The Nomad Soul boasts unique detailed graphics, including facial motion capture, and asks the enigmatic question: "Who will you be after you die?"
You work to stop the evil Prince of Demons from taking the city and your soul. The game combines adventure, role-playing, interaction and combat with a deeply complex scenario to draw players into its shadowed depths. The theme is "virtual reincarnation" — the ability that allows you to take over the body of the last person you touched before dying.
The game contains three cities rendered in real-time 3D, 300 places to explore, 140 rendered 3D characters, 200 body motion captures from world famous martial arts champions, 30 character targets for reincarnation and 3.5 hours of dialogue. The concept designers, David Bowie, Reeves Gabrels and Gail Ann Dorsey, paint a dark parallel universe where the government controls all things: work days, all activities and even "legal sleeping times."
As well, the game features a unique soundtrack, put together by world-class rock star David Bowie and Reeves Gabrels, and contains three complete hours of music. David Bowie also has a cameo in the game and plays a major character. ~ Chris Couper, All Game Guide
