Game Night 20 – OMORI Sat 5/3/14 7:30-10pm

Game Night 20 featuring: OMORIO By Omocat

Sat May 3rd, 2014 
7:30-10:00 PM

Omocat is quickly gaining momentum. From her gif animations, T Shirts, animation, and forward thinking style, she’s put those efforts into a new game, OMORI. We’ll be projecting her efforts outdoors and will have playable stations inside of GR2.

“OMORI is a surreal psychological horror RPGmaker game. You must travel between two worlds, both welcoming, both concealing the same secrets. Meet new (old) people, fight new (old) enemies, explore your own memories, and uncover some hidden truths along the way (although you wish you hadn’t.) When the time comes, you can only choose one. Which world is more real? You decide, I guess.”

Come join us at GR2 on Sat May 4th 7:30-10 PM. 
Free as always. We’ll also have some Omocat merchandise
