After the recent tragic passing of David Bowie, publisher Square Enix has done a kind gesture to PC gamers and David Bowie fans alike by offering an unspecified quantity of download codes of a game he helped to create free for a limited time.
For those not in the know, Omikron: The Nomad Soul is an adventure title that was originally released in 1999 on PC by Eidos, before an eventual digital rerelease by Square Enix. This title tasks players with entering an alternate dimension called Omikron through the body of a police officer from that world named Kay’l 669. From there, the player must help continue the investigations that Kay’l 668 was undertaking with its partner, Den.
David Bowie composed the game’s soundtrack along with Reeves Gabrels, including licensed releases from his album titled ‘album hours.’
If this fitting tribute to David Bowie interests you, the offer is valid on both Square Enix online stores till January 22nd or until the codes run out.
