Omno offers a dreamy blend of platforming and puzzling with a feel for player freedom.
My time with Omno was pleasant, and while I don't think it's a life-changing experience by any means, it does have a certain life-affirming quality to it. Simply put, Omno is an enjoyable journey through a magical world, where so many other games would fill such a setting with chaos.
Omno is an incredibly peaceful yet thoughtful adventure through the remnants of a lost civilization. The inviting nature of it all, coupled with the world’s diversity and vast array of creatures makes it one worth exploring. Though I had some issues with platforming, there’s enough there to make Omno quite an enjoyable experience.
A colorful journey that leads the player to explore some fantastic biomes and shines thanks to a beautiful soundtrack.

Being developed by only one person, Omno is a real artistic feat. More than its vibes that strongly recall Journey, the title seduces with its singular universe, its beautiful environments and its creatures with an inspired design. An artistic success, unfortunately marred by technical worries and collisions that tarnish the experience and single a rhythm that could have been ideal.

If you have any interest in puzzle-platformers, don't let Omno pass you by. It's one of the most heartwarming adventures you can experience on PlayStation 4 with a level of charm seldom found in the medium.
Serene and pleasant, but short and uncomplicated, Omno has a lot of sights worth seeing.
Omno clearly takes a lot of inspiration from the all-time great that is Journey, and often feels very similar in terms of gameplay pacing and overall tone. Omno never quite reaches the same emotional highs as Journey, but in some ways, it does actually build upon its predecessor's groundwork, offering more opportunities for exploration and player freedom. Even if you're just mulling around an area, interacting with strange creatures and soaking up the vibes, there's a lot to like about this lovingly crafted title.
All in all, Omno is a wonderful addition to the platform, puzzle, and adventure genres, even if it doesn’t go so far as to completely reinvent them. If you’ve been feeling a little cooped up over the last few years, you might find that Omno offers some much-needed escapism. It’s easy to get lost in Omno, and what you’ll find is a wonderful adventure into a mysterious world — made even better by the fact that it’s on Xbox Game Pass.
There is a fact that I did not mention before and it is precisely that I wanted to save it for the end, it is a game made by a single person and that deserves to be recognized, especially when you notice a quality product. Jonas Manke gives us a relaxed and well-worked adventure that I recommend without any problem.
