G-Mode and room6 have delayed side-scrolling adventure game OU from its original 2022 release window to spring 2023. The upcoming game will be available for Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam.
Here’s an overview of the game via Steam:
The place is U-chronia, a hazy world that lives in hazy memories of the distant past.
OU, a young boy, wakes up in a dried up riverbed without any memories of his own.
He meets Zarry, an opossum with a flaming tail, who guides him on a journey to find out his story.
The Saudage Specter, who haunts the boy;
Gemini, who looks just like him;
The Weeping Woman “La Llorona”, who leads him to tragedy.
All of them are there to change the Story and how it will end.
A pen-drawn world reminiscent of the illustrations in children’s literature, accompanied by music for guitar and other instruments ripe with nostalgia for an old hometown.
This is the background where the Story, a story meant for someone, unfolds.
Just like a Michael Ende book, “OU” disguises itself as something else—an adventure game—to meet and interact with reality.
OU is also a challenge—a challenge to games as a whole.
