Felipe Budinich, AOne Games marketing Director, explains: “Omen of Sorrow delivers a deep 2D combat system inspired by the classics, bringing back the edge, mindset and philosophy rooted in the genre’s arcade legacy, taking it to the next level with innovative features and fighting mechanics.”
The game will be released during 2018, having toured the world on several fighting game community events it has had a great reception at E.V.O, First Attack, Treta Championship, True Salty and SoCal Regionals, winning awards such as Best Technical Achievement at EVA 2017 just a few weeks ago, and an Unreal Dev Grant on May.
“This is the first time the game will be released onto the wild, outside of the controlled environment of an event. It’s a daunting proposal, but we strongly believe that once players get their hands on the game, they’ll be able to appreciate the effort we’ve put into all the subtle details that can’t be conveyed through gameplay videos such as input handling, and the overall flow of combat.” Says, Max Kubler, AOne Games Executive Producer.
