Clear River Games, a video game publisher specialising in classic and retro games and part of Embracer Freemode, today announced
Omega 6 The Video Game, a new adventure game with 16-Bit styling, based on the manga by former Nintendo art director, Takaya Imamura. Expected for release in 2024, Omega 6 The Video Game will debut on the show floor of the Tokyo Game Show 2023, courtesy of publishing partner, City Connection.
Based on the sci-fi comic first introduced in 2022 by France’s Omake Books, Omega 6 The Video Game features a brand new story, taking players on an intergalactic journey to locate a new home for the human race. With adventure around every turn, the path rarely runs smoothly for voyagers Thunder and Kyra, who, joined by their robot Prop and alien Flavo, are forced to embark on a dubious treasure hunt in the ruins of a strange planet to settle their mounting debts. Competing with fellow treasure hunters and armed with information that may help or hinder them, what treachery lies ahead of Thunder and Kyra on planet Imposter?
Having worked on a roster of critically acclaimed titles including the F-Zero, Zelda and Star Fox series, acclaimed art director Takaya Imamura will be leading the art direction and graphics for Omega 6 The Video Game, filled with beautiful pixel art and a cast of unique characters. Meanwhile Shinobu Amayake, also ex-Nintendo, will be drawing on her experience of composing music for NES and SNES titles, including Stunt Race FX, to create an original soundtrack for the game.
Commenting on the announcement of Omega 6 The Video Game, Ali Manzuri, Director of Publishing at Clear River Games said, “Takaya Imamura-San is responsible for creating some of the most recognisable and best loved characters in video game history and with Omega 6 The Video Game, he once again promises to take gamers on an unforgettable adventure. Based on the successful manga of the same name, we believe that Omega 6 The Video Game will be an unforgettable title for Switch gamers and we can’t wait to offer a first look at the 2023 Tokyo Game Show.”
