Released earlier this year for PC and mobile devices, Borokai Studios has recently stated its future plans for the independent visual novel Omega Pattern. The game, which follows a man with psychic abilities on the run from a mysterious corporation, has its first part available for $4.99 on Steam and mobile app stores.
The world where the Omega Pattern story happens is seemingly normal, similar to the one we live in. However, genetics and fate mean that a few individuals are born with a kind of Pattern or special brain signal which lets them develop unique and varied psychic skills that are determined by their life experiences, which form their behavior and character.
From the shadows, an organization known as Bioagora controls the world according to its own interests thanks to the power and influences that they get, in part, from their Agents. These Agents are people who own the Pattern and have been coerced, bought, forced and even captured against their will to be brainwashed and indoctrinated, so they can faithfully serve the Bioagora.
Shaiel (21 years old), a man who possesses the Pattern, has found himself forced to live in secrecy in order to avoid falling into the hands of the Bioagora. However, as time passes, it gets more difficult to escape from a power which is increasing exponentially. Seeking for allies has become unavoidable, and it seems that the only alternative available are the Celtas; a small and poorly organized group with unorthodox methods, whose plan to face the Agents and restore an order different to the Bioagora’s seems near impossible.
As the rest of the population stay impassive in a gray world, Shaiel will have to play his cards right and find out the truth hidden by the Bioagora, the Celtas and himself.
David Ridao has outlined plans to complete future development of the game in a recent blog post:
We’ve received some great feedback and reviews of the first part of Omega Pattern but there are some users who felt disappointed with the length of this part too. We respect everyone’s opinion and we take all them into account in order to improve Omega Pattern, but we’d like to take this announcement to clarify some details about Borokai Studio and the Omega Pattern project.
Borokai Studio is an indie group and Omega Pattern is his first indie visual novel. Besides being indie, Omega Pattern pretends to be a very long visual novel (+40 hours). It’s impossible to afford this kind of project by an indie group without economic support, and here’s where the first part of Omega Pattern appears. We covered the first part expenses and released it without Kickstarter, Patreon or any kind of crowdfunding campaign because we wanted to show you the main concept of Omega Pattern (a visual novel where you define the main character’s personality and Pattern) before using this kind of resources.
Omega Pattern is available now on PC and mobile devices. Stay tuned for more news here on Gaming Trend.
