There comes a time in every PC owner’s life when they must experience David Bowie’s most significant contribution to the medium; an appearance in, and soundtrack contribution to, Omikron: The Nomad Soul. That time for me is right now, in a Bowie Anniversarial Remembrance play through of Quantic Dream’s 1999 release.
I’ve never played this game before. I know next to nothing about it besides the Bowie connection, and that it involves soul-hopping to some extent.
In Part 1 (below), I insert my soul into some poor guy’s body, get attacked by a weird insect-demon, get sexually involved with a woman wearing a white top (in record time, even for a Quantic Dream game), solve a lizard feeding puzzle, and acquire a HOT LEAD for a case.Related to this article
