PS4 users can finally play a long-awaited and much-loved game after eight long years. Once upon a time, Kickstarter was a popular way to fund games and prove publisher interest. And there was a time when certain games made millions, got a lot of attention, and were hugely successful. The platform isn’t nearly as active and popular, but a game that was released back then has finally made its way to PS4.
In 2014, it took Omori one day to be fully funded on Kickstarter. At the time, the game wasn’t announced for PS4, but that eventually changed. And originally, the game was supposed to release in 2015. It ended up only releasing in 2020, through the PC only. Upon release, the game earned an impressive 87 on Metacritic. And these are just the opinions of the critics. User reviews are actually higher, which is not very common.
On June 17, 2022 – last week – it arrived on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. It was also supposed to come to PS4 but was delayed at the last second. Today the game has arrived on PS4, via PSN, where it costs $29.99. For two tens, you get a game with 20 to 70 hours of content, depending on your style of play, i.e. whether you take it live or go for a runner-up route.
“Explore a strange world full of colorful friends and foes. Navigate through the vibrant and the mundane in order to uncover a forgotten past,” reads an official pitch for the game on the PlayStation Store. “In time, the path you choose will determine your fate…and perhaps the fate of others as well.”
