In remembrance of David Bowie who sadly passed away this week at the age of 69, Square Enix is giving away the one and only game which Bowie played a pretty big part in: Omikron – The Nomad Soul.
The game, which originally launched on Windows in 1999 and on Dreamcast in 2000, was developed by Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls developer Quantic Dream which was then lead by David Cage. It’s an adventure game in which the player takes the role of a character transported to a mysterious dimension with no recollection of how he got there. Only a mysterious character with a mysterious question knows why he’s there.
The reason for its free release by Square Enix is due to Bowie starring in the game as well as contributing various original songs to it. It’s a lovely way to remember the musician and play what I’d consider a pretty fantastic game form the late nineties.
You can grab your free Steam code by purchasing the game through Square Enix store. The game will remain free on the store until next Friday (January 22) at 9am (UK time).
