Omikron: The Nomad Soul is a very creative and unique experience in some Towards the end, the game starts to look graphically so bad, it is kind of It's hard to create a connection with a game when the person you're. We All Go Through (Omikron end credits). It worked as the payoff song for Omikron: the Nomad Soul, a victory lap for . The song autopsied a relationship. Omikron provides an adventure that, despite its action/fighting game trappings, delivers a story and adventure that will keep you playing until the end. relationships in a very adult manner, and adult subjects maturely.
It's an incredible feeling to know that if you've seen it, you can go there, and if you hear about it, you can find it. Hidden bars, secret passageways in offices, secret messages hidden in someone's locker -- it's more than just finding items, it's the impression that you're setting foot in someone else's life that makes the game so exciting -- and isn't that why we play games in the first place?
More Characters Than the Cover of Sgt. Pepper's Once you've attained the resurrection spell in the game, you'll have the ability to move bodies using Mana and some know how -- there are a variety of characters just waiting to be inhabited, from Betsy, a Journalist that you find in a drugstore, to an alien-looking Azekeel Farmer name Fodo.
There are over 30 characters in all, some of which are vital to the plot, and others which just allow you to fit yourself in a different skin for a while. Access their apartments, see their lives, and sometimes, get another key to the puzzle of Omikron.
The fact that a lot of the characters are completely unnecessary is actually one of greatest design tricks of recent times.
Games have gotten so advanced that many of us want to enter a world simply to do nothing. I'm sorry if I sound gross, but yes I would love to sit at a table drinking kloop as a speed-junkey Slider racer. Keep in mind, however, the world sees you for how you look, so playing a thief and trying to sneak into the police station just isn't going to cut it.
The concept pays off, in nothing else, for yet another sense of the size of the world that you're inhabiting, and the people who's lives depend on the city for existence. A Little Big City Blues What I'm most impressed about with Omikron is how it never stoops to a low level with its storyline -- it handles relationships in a very adult manner, and adult subjects maturely.
Though you'll have the ability to explore seedy sites like a strip club, a peepshow, and even a sex shop, it never feels any seedier than, well, it should feel. In other words, yeah it's a strip club, but it's in the red light district, just like the strip clubs in real life.
It's part of the cities in Phaenon just like they're part of the cities in San Francisco or New York, or Boise, and they're just one of the many sights that you'll gaze on in your adventures. The graphics in the game are incredible, and give the game most of its parallel-universe appeal.
The game avoids most futuristic Blade Runner mimicry by making outfits and characters much more outlandish -- tattoos, body paint, and a lot of fabric or none at all seem to be the fashion statements in modern day Phaenon. The sliders glisten with metallic shine, reflecting the skies and the world around them. The buildings may be the biggest things you notice at first, but you'll quickly find your eyes popping at the detail that Quantic Dream has pulled off with the characters. At times they look frighteningly real, with faces that react with emotion, and mouths that move along with the voice dialogue, which is pretty high quality, particularly Bowie.
Speaking of which, it attests to the designer's detail that even with a completely different look, the Bowie character is still instantly recognizable. It seems like a small thing to create detailed faces, but in fact, it goes a great way towards connecting you with the characters, and creating an individual feel for the inhabitants of the world.
In terms of speed though, I did have some serious problems with framerates, particularly in some of the shooter sequences, which seemed to clog up at random -- sometimes they would run fine, at other times they would bog down for no apparent reason. Go straight until you see a ladder on your right. Turn right and stand as far back in the line of boxes as possible.
Run toward the next building and jump to reach it. Turn left and descend the ladder to a lower roof. Run and jump to the roof directly across from the bottom of the ladder. Your escape will be narrow but successful. You return automatically to Awakened HQ. Upon your return, you speak with Jenna. She congratulates you but was surprised that the antenna was so well guarded. Report to Namtar's cell to inform him of your success.
Namtar tells you to take a rest as a reward for a job well done. He gives you the key to a hideout at Konera Street, Jaunpur. Sanctification of Xenda'r's Beshe'm Go visit Dakobah; he offers to teach you sorcery. To cast a spell, he tells you, you need a sacred bowl and the ingredients to mix in it. Dakobah gives you the key to his private library so that you may study the Ancient Art. Before going to study, go to the floor of the base and talk to Soks.
He complains again of his difficulties with dampness. Turn left and go to a nearby table to pick up a can of Insulating Spray.
Omikron: The Nomad Soul
Give this gift to the robot, Soks, and he will give you something valuable in return. He gives you a Hydromagnetic Piston. You never know if it will come in handy. Go to Dakobah's library and rummage around on the lower floor. There's a chest here, but it's locked. A Life Potion sits on the desk. Two books on the shelves stand out: It now functions properly and takes you to the upper level of the library. At the end of this hall is a blocked door containing the same symbols shown in "The Magic Signs of the Art.
You can deduce the meaning of these codes because the marks on these doors are simple addition equations. Jot down the symbols for ten and fourteen and go to the hall outside of Krill's cell.
You find another door that seems more accessible. Approach it and press Action to view the locking mechanism. Do the math to come up with a solution. Dakobah congratulates you on finding Xenda'r Temple. You may find the Beshe'm within. A green platform on the right holds five Magic Rings and Drops of Shadow. At the base of a large tree, pick up a Cepher Leaf. The door at the head of the room is locked. Jump into the water and swim to a pool beyond this door.
Descend the path to the lower floor, noting the Rings near the pool. At the base of the ramp lies the body of Xenda'r, the sorcerer. To set up the ceremony, stand at the center of the rocky platform in the middle of the room, facing Xenda'r's corpse.
Place the candles on the two unmarked platforms to your right and left. Place the Drops of Shadow at the twelve o'clock position. Place the Cepher Leaf at the four o'clock position.
Place the Skull Dust at the six o'clock position. Place the Amepher Dew at the ten o'clock position. Place the Beshe'm on the central podium. Step back to the intersecting lines near the middle of the platform and the ceremony begins. Pick up the Sanctified Beshe'm and head back to the base. There, talk to Dakobah and show him the Beshe'm. Now it's time for a little relaxation in the Awakened's hideout.
From where the Slider lets you off turn left and run to the right of a building with a gray metal door. Walk around the building and under the Kloops Beer sign. Turn right at the wall decorated with blue mosaic tiles. Turn right at the corner, go under a short wooden bridge, and veer right. Take the second right to find the hideout's door.

As you unlock the door, note the Rings in the hole in the wall to your right. Descend the stairs to the left into the safe house's main room. Jenna is waiting to talk to you. Tetra Sabotage No time to rest; a new mission has arisen.
You are to infiltrate the Tetra Trust's factory and sabotage the production facilities for a new generation of Mecaguard, the Z-Tech Once inside, you must place eight time bombs on assembly line control panels. You are to meet with a man named Qazef to find a secret entrance to the factory. Take your Slider to the gun shop to meet Qazef. The shop is below street level, west of the Anekbah Gate. Qazef won't speak to you about the Tetra factory and there's nothing you can do to change his mind.
Scope the woman lounging by the gun rack. Iman is not only one of Jaunpur's many inhabitable characters, she is one you must use to continue. Now talk to Qazef in your new body. He seems much friendlier. Ask him what you want to know in exchange for some of your "time.
He, however, doesn't know exactly where; you'll need a Sewer Map from one of the bookshops. Now leave him hanging and go about your business. Go to the bookstore near the temple and buy a Sewer Map. Call your Slider and take it to the Tetra headquarters.
Turn right at the wall marked with a star. Veer right down the hall adorned with blue mosaic tiles. Continue west a few paces to the canal's edge and a ramp down to the water. Dive into the water and search nearby for a lever. Pull it and the door to the sewers opens. Climb out of the filthy water and you'll receive a transmission from Jenna.
Walk forward and drop into the showers of a locker room. As you enter the locker room, a brute attacks you. Fight him to the death and note the symbol tattooed on his chest. Find a locker with the same symbol and open it to pocket the Tetra 1 Pass and a Large Medikit. Use the Tetra 1 Pass to go through this door and begin the shooting sequence. Your basic mission is to plant eight bombs on eight of the consoles scattered throughout the base and escape the base before the bombs detonate.
Pass the auto-save rings and get ready to rumble. Turn right and go up the staircase at the end of the room. Go through the door at the head of the stairs and head down toward the tracks.
Stand against the wall from which the train enters and run across the tracks as soon as the train passes. Go to the control console and press Action to open a door back in the initial room. Return the way you came and go back through the door.
Run across the catwalk to the newly opened door. Pass through, briefly exiting Shooting Mode, and go through the next door. An auto-save station awaits. Go forward and descend the stairs. Push forward through the room to a staircase leading up to a catwalk and a door. Look for these doors throughout the level; most of them contain the control panels you seek.
Simply walk up to them and press Action to place the bomb; you'll get a message confirming your action. Just don't do it now. Continue through the room until it's blocked by boxes. Run into the hatch to the left, but stay off of the conveyer belts.
Go through the door to the other side of the line of boxes and continue across the room. When you enter one of the side rooms, you will switch out of Shooting Mode.
A guard, Bahimy'l, sits slumped against the wall. Reincarnate into him to operate stealthily for the next few moments. Remember, don't shoot anyone or place any bombs or you'll blow your cover.
Walk out of the room and go to the end of the hall. The metal door here is locked tight. Turn left and go through either of the doors to a bridge room. Once through the door, it's OK to waste the two guards here. Cross the bridge and go into the office to find a console.
Press Action to unlock the metal door. Pressing this blows your cover and you'll be a target again. Once the door is unlocked, go back and place bombs in all of the rooms off of the catwalk. Don't forget the one behind the line of boxes. Go through the gray metal door to reach another auto-save station. Descend the ramp and scale the stairs to a catwalk.
Stroll to the end until you find yourself under a pulley. Press Action to ride the pulley across the gap. Be ready to fire immediately when Shooting Mode resumes. Go down the steps to a T-intersection. Go right and upstairs to a catwalk with three rooms: Doing this clears the way to the next part of the sequence. Go back to the T-intersection; go straight across and right. Press forward until you see a door on the right. Emerge from the control room and climb the stairs across the room.
One of these rooms leads to the next section; the others have control panels just begging for bombs. Approach a pedestal with a wheel crank.
Rotate it to swing the walkway over to you. Jump over the small gap to get to the central hub. Turn the wheel once to swing the walkway to the door. You may also rotate it once more to access a hidden cache containing a Medium Medikit and Decagun Ammo.

Pass through the door. Stand against the wall, wait for the train to pass, and dart across the tracks. Climb the stairs on the other side of the tracks and enter the green-illuminated tunnel. When you come to a grating in the floor, press Action to slide it aside. Below you is a train tunnel into which you will soon drop, but not yet!
Wait for the train to pass and run across the tracks to an alcove with a Small Medikit. Turn around and wait for the next train to pass. When it does, dart left and across the tracks to another alcove with a door. Remember, if you're struggling to find the alcove, run back to the one you just left or you'll be wheel grease.
Enter a large control room with three rooms branching off and a large lift in the middle. Each room contains a control console and a scary-looking Mecaguard. The lift must be activated by pressing buttons in all three rooms. Unfortunately, pressing these switches also releases the trio of Z-Techs. Push the switches and make a beeline for the lift.
Ride it to the top and your mission is complete. Walk down the passage and meet with Jenna. Unfortunately, the celebration is short-lived, as the authorities descend upon you both. You and Jenna are transferred to the prison facility at Pamoka.
You are given a choice: Of course, you refuse to give him the information he desires. He gives you a few hours to reconsider and dispatches a guard to watch over you. Suddenly, you hear a voice through the wall: She tells you to find a way out of your cell, find a Multiplan to reactivate your Sneak, and set her free.
Notice the Rings in the corner and grab the bowl on the floor. If you insult the guard, he fires off a shot from the electric disciple ray in your cell. Select the bowl and press Use. Then pick an insult and the bowl will perfectly reflect the guard's beam at him. Reach out of the cell and inspect the body for the Guard's Key. Pass the door to Jenna's cell and enter a hall where a guard seems preoccupied by something out of the window.
Enter the door behind him and access the Multiplan terminal to recover your Sneak's contents. Reincarnate into the guard, Zao'r, and return to free Jenna. She recommends pretending to be a prisoner that you, as a guard, are transferring. Follow her through the hall and down to a lower floor. Chat with the guard at the door, who grills you about your activities. Pick your excuse and stick by it and he'll let you go unmolested.
You and Jenna board the Slider and return home. Unmasking a Traitor Jenna tells you she is sure that a traitor lurks within the Awakened. Go see Soks to find out what he's heard. You coax him to distract Krill while you snoop around his cell.
It's as good a place to start as any. Turns out Krill's asleep. Soks lets you in. Open Krill's cabinet to swipe his screwdriver. Other than that, there's really nothing to see here. Peek in on Meshka'n. Since his door's locked, you must Use the Screwdriver to get in. The good news is that he's eliminated as a suspect; the bad news is he's dead.
Pick up Meshka'n's Journal from his desk. Ransack the two cabinets: Go to Dakobah's library and use Meshka'n's Key to open the chest.
Visit Yob, who's busy training Namtar. Rifle through Namtar's clothes on the floor to find the key to his cell. Quietly open Namtar's cell and venture inside. Careful inspection reveals that his cabinet appears to have been slid across the floor. Walk around to the right side of the cabinet and press Action to push it.
A hatch in the floor can't be opened. Use the Acid near the hatch to burn it open. Pick up the object hidden under the hatch. It's a Demoniac Cube. As you walk away, a message intended for Namtar comes through the cube. Not only is Namtar the traitor, he's also a demon!
Remembering the recipe for the Unmask Demon Spell, you should grab the horn off of the Sham head on the wall. Enter Yob's cell to confront Namtar. An auto-save station appears just outside of the cell as you enter. You can't go after Namtar while he's human or Yob will defend him.
You must unmask him first. The result is the Unmask Demon Spell. Cast the spell by Using it and fight the demon inhabiting Namtar's shell. After your victory, Dakobah and Jenna thank you for your keen detective work.
He has also arranged a meeting with Boz at the leader's old house at Tramesh Street. Meeting Boz Leave the base via the elevator and take your Slider to Boz's house. The door to Boz's apartment is next to where your Slider drops you off. Turn right and go through a door to find Octagun Ammunition and an Octagun.
Descend the ramp on the left side of the room. Two Magic Rings sit around the periphery of Boz's chamber. Approach the control panel and press Action to talk to Boz. From this conversation, you learn several unsettling facts.
Pick up the Pass to Lahoreh on your way out of the room. Hop in your Slider and take it to the Gate to Lahoreh. Show the pass to the Mecaguard and go through. Lahoreh Research at the Library Immediately upon your arrival, head for the library on Lahoreh district's northeast island. It's a massive building with a pyramid on top. As you enter the stacks, you get a message from Jenna.
She tells you the location of the new Awakened base, right here in Lahoreh. You'll find it near the bank, southeast of the library. You'll go there a little later. Explore the perimeter of the library's Main Reading Room. Pick up any stray books you find on the tables. You should be able to pocket: A guard mans an elevator. Only researchers are allowed, so go find a researcher. In the history section you find Enay'd, a professor. Now address the elevator operator again.
When you get to the upper floor, approach any of the shelves and press Action. Borrow all of the books listed. The last book is, to say the least, the most important. Go chat with the other researcher in the room to see if he can help translate the text. He suggests you get a Tradutech like the one he has. He agrees to lend it to you if you do some research for him. He's looking for the "Aegmaar Index of the 3rd planet of the 4th System" but is too old to go hunting through the library.
Drop any books you got from this level into the deposit box to the left of the researcher; you can't leave the floor with them. Go to the lower floor. Go back upstairs and tell the professor what you found. Now, pick up his Tradutech. Unfortunately, you'll have to be discreet with the Tradutech. Go to the light switch on the wall and press Action to shut the lights off. When the room goes black, access your Sneak and Use the Tradutech on the book. When the guard restores the lights, you will have a translated copy of the text.
The book is automatically returned to the bin and the Tradutech has gone back to its owner. The good news is that you already have one of the three Vyagrimukha stones. Walk past the bank until you come to a wall. To your left a seemingly solid rock wall abuts the river. Walk over to it, move to the far left side, and press Action to open the door. Follow the corridor until you reach the core of the new base, built into a forgotten monastery.
Directly opposite you is the entrance to the ancient monastery itself. To the right is Dakobah's new office. Approach Dakobah and press Action to show him your translation.
The conversation reveals several instructions. Go to Yrmal'i Square and enter any of its doors. Around the edge of the well, one door is different from the others. This is the elevator to the apartments above. Several inhabitable characters keep their abodes here; to access their apartments. Use their keys in the elevator. Stand in the center of the room. Four columns, each with symbols on top, surround a central disc in the floor.
Offset from the middle is a triangle. If you press Action near one of the columns, the symbol closest to you will retract. The key to solving this puzzle is to know which symbol should be depressed on which column.
A map on the wall provides a clue. Four marks in the city could very well correspond to the locations of the symbols.
The clues, when you find them, show both the correct icon and the position where it belongs in relation to the offset triangle. To find the first mark, go to the bookstore near the Gate to Jaunpur. Walk north until the sidewalk veers right toward a gray building that juts out over the water.
Dive into the water and swim toward the building; the first symbol is dead center: The second symbol is close by.
Go back to the bookstore and face the bridge to the west. Dive into the water and swim to the opposite shore. Just at the waterline under the bridge is the second symbol: The third symbol is in the Sorcerer's Shop. Take the ramp near the supermarket up to the shop and look for a knocked-over column to the left of the counter. On the back side, you'll see the third symbol: While you're in the Sorcerer's Shop, buy a bottle of Drops of Shadow for the little Resurrection Spell you'll be casting soon.
The fourth symbol can be found in the restaurant. Go up the ramp and follow the balcony until it ends at the fourth symbol: Return to the Yrmal'i Well. Note the triangle planted off-center in the middle of the room; this should look familiar from the pictographs you've just seen. Note the background features in each figure above to ensure you're working with the correct pillars.
Adjust the four pillars to their appropriate symbols in relation to the triangle. When the proper symbols are displayed, the disc in the center of the room reveals itself to be an elevator. Step on it to descend. In Search of the "Right Eye of the God".
Your search for the second Vyagrimukha's Jewel begins at the base of the Yrmal'i Well. Venture through the elevator doors into a very strange room. Five pedestals sit in the middle of the room. Approach the pillar in the middle and press Action to touch it.
You will hear a four-note tune that you must reproduce on the four surrounding pedestals. You must duplicate two tunes to unlock the tunnel at the far end of the room. This is the order of the first tune: The tune replays if you get it right. Touch the middle pedestal again to get the next tune, this one six tones.END OF OMIKRON
When the second tune is played back, the lift to the tunnel lowers to ground level. Before heading into the inner chamber, however, scour this area for a Mana Potion and a Life Potion.
As you board the lift, notice the markings etched into it. These are your directions to find the correct stone in the next chamber. Here are the instructions translated into conventional directions: You enter a burial chamber at the southern point.
Notice that the four directional symbols adorn the walls. Each casket contains a jewel; they all look identical but only one is authentic. To find the correct jewel, stand in the doorway and walk north to the third casket in the center aisle. Turn right and go two caskets east. Turn right again and travel south one casket. Turn right to go three caskets west. Make a right turn to pass two caskets to the north.
Finally, turn right to go two caskets east. Open the casket by pressing Action, and take the jewel. Be sure you have the right one; you won't know you've grabbed the bogus jewel until you're miles away. Pack up your stuff and head back to Jaunpur and on to Jahangir Park.
Hail your Slider and point it to the entrance to Jahangir Park. The Slider will only take you as far as the southeastern gate from Jaunpur, so you'll have to hoof it from here, running east from the drop-off point, through two huge blast doors, past the rooftops shooting sequence location, and to a courtyard with a staircase leading up.
At the top of the stairs, turn right to find the door to Jahangir Park. Just inside of the gate, make a mental note of a set of Rings. You'll need one more ingredient for your Resurrection Spell: Walk forward and turn right to see a bunch of Jinpan birds on some rocks.
Dive into the water and surface on the small outcropping of ground below the birds. Press Action to climb up to the rock ledge.
You'll scare away the bird, but it will leave behind what you need. Press Action to climb back down. Staying on the same side of the stream, walk left. When the path widens, turn degrees to see an opening for a tunnel.
Follow this seemingly endless tunnel up and up into a high tower. At the top, on a windowsill, find the final Vyagrimukha's Jewel. Tomb Raiding Return to the park entrance and turn to see a large structure in the middle of the park. Approach and enter it. The walls of this room are lined with buttons, each featuring a letter of the Masa'u alphabet.
Push the buttons in his name by pressing Action. When all five letters are depressed, the floor descends into the ancient sorcerer's tomb.
Follow the corridor to find Kiwan's mummy. The result is a Resurrection Spell. Kiwan seems less than thrilled to have been awakened and gives you a hard time about your intentions.
Incidentally, you can get it in the current Steam sale for like a quid. I replayed it to get screenshots for this piece, and of course realised that actually it might be a complete disaster as well. The controls are an abomination, combined with a Cagian, I-am-an-auteur style camera that snaps to a new angle every time you enter a room, usually in a top corner the better to evoke constant CCTV monitoring by a dystopian deep state. Omikron was his first and only video game role.
Bowie not only wrote a lot of the music for Omikron the opening credits are a movie-style zoom over bits of the grimey megacity set to New Angels of Promise — a bunch of the songs he wrote for Omikron ended up on his album Hoursbut is in it as a sort of messianic revolutionary leader called Boz. His likeness was also used for the unrelated lead singer of an in-game band called The Dreamers.
He wants to swap places with your soul so that you can carry on his investigation and save the world and so on.
