Ouggggh ueuuejee 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

I had great expectations for this game and it mostly live up to them.
Omori is a really good game, the atmosphere and world design are really well made. It has a surprisingly good combat system and the story is quite good aswell, but I don't consider it to be for everyone.
Mind you, if you think that Omori is a horrifying and scary game it mostly isn't, it gets unsettling from time to time, but the heavy things are more towards the end of the game.
Speaking of the later parts of the game, I didn't like the twist that the story took. Throughtout the game you start build an idea of what the story is about, and who is dead, and why the trauma and all that.
All that, for some reason, resolves in a kinda exagerated twist that kinda feels like they tried to make the game seem really dark and grim when the story could have been about losing someone you loved and it would been perfectly fine.
It's a really good game, my complains are mostly on personal opinion. So play it regardless, is totally worth.

I went into this game blind and came out wishing I knew even less about it going in than I did.

I was not really sure what to expect from this game. It was very Earthbound/Undertale inspired, with the goofy and silly interactions you can have with characters, and battles. Like you can fight a tree that doesn’t attack, and you can do no damage to. There’s an enemy called Reverse Mermaid where it’s a fish on top and legs on the bottom, but even the name is written in reverse, as well as the health bar. It’s got a lot of fun moments like that, and a good cast that makes you care about them in a low stakes world. Then it turns out there is a real world, with the same characters, but you are all grown up, and one person is missing. It turns out you and the other characters are dealing with the death of your older sister, and the real segments have you deal with the trauma, and how it affects each person. This was a good game, with multiple play-through options, that I don’t think I’ll do, but very cool for those who are interested. Great game, great story.

Normally I write pretty big reviews. I don't want to for Omori...I have never cried as hard after any videogame as I have this one :(

admittedly, the combat and the grind annoyed me so much i gave in and cheated the game... good plot and aesthetics though
