G-Mode and room6 announced side-scrolling adventure game OU has been delayed from its planned March 2023 release window to summer 2023. Development time was extended for further quality improvements according to G-Mode.
The upcoming title will be available for Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam worldwide. Steam users may wishlist OU right now at the game’s official Steam page. The Nintendo eShop page for OU is not available yet, so Nintendo Switch users have to wait a little while longer before wishlisting the adventure game.
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.
A side-scrolling adventure game in which you control a character on a field, which can be enjoyed by those who are not good at action games.
There are various designs and functions of “labels,” which are used to solve riddles. You can also collect them.
There are times when you have to run away from or confront huge monsters.
