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.

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.

Solo developer Jonas Manke has aimed for the comfort of an easy-in-every-way game and hit the mark. The play feel of the later game and gorgeous environments are what lift it above a paint-by-numbers explore-em-up. It will test neither your skill nor your patience, with solid execution that respects the player’s time. While there’s little to blow you away, there’s lots to impress, delivered confidently and without asking much in return.

‎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.‎

Inspired and delicate on the visual and musical side, Omno's journey does not convince to the end, also thanks to a somewhat hasty ending and a moral conveyed with slight superficiality.

OMNO is a game worth experiencing despite its minor faults, especially as it's a great testament to what can be created by a single person. There's no need for a complicated storyline, just simple puzzles and platforming to create a satisfying experience. The gratification comes from working things out on your own and making your own way to the Gate of Light through a journey that never become too difficult or frustrating.

OMNO is a relaxing experience for anyone looking to escape for a little while. There's enough to keep players involved without feeling overwhelmed, and there's enough charm to its design to keep it from being repetitive. As a whole, it's a good game to pass the time, but not something you'd come back to time and time again.

Omno provides a great escape from this suffocating world we live in today through its complete absence of any gloom and doom. Jonas Manke a.k.a. StudioInkyfox initially created this passion project as an escape on Kickstarter, and it really does deliver. Just be sure to play this game on a platform that doesn't just fulfill its minimum requirements-I had the misfortune of installing it first on a PC that was so choppy and laggy I couldn't even make the shortest jump across two platforms.

Animation is the art of movement and Omno is clearly a work of art, but isn’t the masterpiece I was hoping it to be. Despite that, it is still an impressive feat. It is no surprise that the game reached three times its funding goal on Kickstarter. The game is beautiful and enjoyable. It brings new elements to the growing genre of peaceful games. I especially loved the long list of new creatures to interact with. However, minor details left me not quite falling head over heels.

The structure of riddles is not so challenging to bore you and too simple to absorb, but they have a decent design, and the progressive combination of the game with music and the eye-catching visual effects of the game has made Omno one of the most relaxing games of the last few years.

Omno is not flawless, but it can entertain you with its great music and simple but eventually shocking story. Don't miss it, especially if you already have Game Pass.

Very gently, Omno is a great dreamy journey through a peaceful and enchanting world. With an open narrative, simplified gameplay and artistic beauty, it is a cohesive and simple work, and even if it's short, it turns out to be unforgettable.
