Omikron: The Nomad Soul Free this Weekend on Square Enix Store January 15, 2016Posted by Maniac in Game News.
Many people know David Cage from his unique adventure games Heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls and Indigo Prophecy. I can tell you from personal experience these are incredible games that absolutely must be played at least once. However, he very first game David Cage ever directed was a cyberpunk PC/Dreamcast cult hit called Omikron: The Nomad Soul staring the legendary David Bowie. Sadly, I’ve never been able to play this game, and with his passing I felt like I never would. Today, that changes for everyone.
Since it was originally published, the rights to the game have passed to Square Enix, who also hold the rights to franchises like Tomb Raider, Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest. In honor of David Bowie’s passing, Square Enix has decided to offer the PC version of Omikron: The Nomad Soul free of charge as a digital download through the Square Enix online store starting today!
To get the game, simply log into the Square Enix store from your region (If you’re in North America, you can access the store here, European Customers can visit this website) and add Omikron: The Nomad Soul to your cart. During the checkout process, use the promo code “omikron” (without quotes), and the game should ring up as free when you finalize your order.
If the order is properly processed, you will receive an email with the game’s CD-key. That key will unlock the game on Steam.
You will need both a Square Enix account, a Steam Account, and the Steam client to play this game, but all are available free of charge!
This deal will remain valid starting from today until Jan 22nd, 2016. The Square Enix store has been having intermittent issues processing orders all day due to the huge demand this offer is putting on their servers. If you’re having any issues processing your order, I recommend trying again at a later time.
Omikron: The Nomad Soul is out now on PC and Dreamcast.
