Solo developer Jonas Manke and indie publisher Future Friends have finally announced the release date of the “sweeping single-player adventure”, Omno.
Omno, the debut project for solo developer Jonas Manke (Studio Inkyfox), launched a very successful Kickstarter campaign way back when. It was announced during the ID@Xbox event back in March that the game would be coming to Xbox and Game Pass sometime this summer. Well, Studio Inkyfox and indie publisher Future Friends have revealed that the title will finally launch later this month. Jonas Make spoke about his experience making Omno and how it feels for it to be finally releasing.
“I first started creating Omno just for fun – I mostly just wanted to make a world I could escape to after work […] It was only after sharing some of the stuff I was making with friends and family that I thought maybe I could actually turn this into something people might actually want to play! Being here now, nearly 5 years later, with a successful Kickstarter campaign and a game about to launch on PC & consoles still feels like a dream to me.”Jonas Manke ~ Studio Inkyfox
