OMNO is a wonderfully designed indie puzzle platformer by Jonas Manke and Inkyfox and published by Future Friends Games. Often compared to titles like Journey, Omno follows the standard format for its genre; platforming puzzles to solve, collectibles to find, secrets to uncover. It is the way it does so and the setting that truly sets Omno apart from other games of its ilk. As you control the oddly shaped, bulb-headed character, you'll go through 10 different, visually appealing landscapes, from forests to seas to deserts and everything in between.
Aside from its aesthetic appeal, its other strength is its platforming - and story- freedom. In other words, the story is not there in your face, if at all, if you don't want it to be but if you do, there is lore and a story there to discover. Additionally, while it is linear in terms of the order of Chapters, what you do inside those levels is up to you.
All in all, Omno is a very pleasant, even relaxing game with an interesting take on platforming and puzzles that are easy enough to solve without any help but are still fun to do.
Important: Although Chapter Select is available once you finish the game, your progress and collectibles will not carry over; selecting any Chapter will essentially act as starting over and in fact, the game even prompts you asking if you want to begin a New Game. If you missed 100%'ing any Chapter, you will have to re-collect everything in that region once more to get that Chapter's 100% trophy. Hitting Continue instead of Chapter Select won't work either, as all that will do is force you to re-watch the Epilogue and the credits before returning you to the Main Menu. Additionally, you don't have access to every Chapter so you might have to redo multiple Chapters to reach the one you need.
Throughout this game, you'll visit a myriad of widely different areas and you'll get to explore all of it to your heart's content but while the visuals differ, the concept never really changes. The end goal in each area is to collect 3 glowing Orbs to unlock the final puzzle, which then unlocks the portal to the next area. There are more Orbs as well as other collectibles and secrets to find in each Chapter of course, all of which are necessary for the Platinum.
Even with collectibles to find in each region, it's a relatively a quick Platinum, even without a guide. Each level has a Meditation Platform and when you use it, it unlocks the area map, which shows you the spot of each remaining Orb to find so you should never have a problem finding them, although Cubes and creatures do not show up on the map. You are free to explore and collect everything in whatever order you please so it's not necessary to follow this Walkthrough in the exact order listed in the trophy descriptions. The only thing we recommend is to head for the Meditation Platform first whenever you enter a new region, as it unlocks the map. In addition, not only is the Platform already on your map and thus easy to find, it's also usually found close to the entrance.
See The Ascendant for a list of notes and some tips to help you along the way.
NOTE: As there isn't any dialogue in the game, there aren't any actual names/terms in-game for the collectibles and landmarks so just for clarity's sake, we have included a list of all of the meanings of the most-used terms in this Walkthrough. See The Enlightened for the list.
STEP ONE — Play the game and 100% all 10 Chapters
Play the game, interacting with and collecting everything you see along the way. Each Chapter has 10-14 things to find and these include: 3-5 Orbs, Cube Glyphs, discovering all creatures, filling the Energy Obelisk and meditating on the stone Platform. You can go through each level in any way or order as you please; you don't have to collect the items or solve the puzzles in any specific order but it's advised to at least find the Platform to meditate on as that unlocks the region map which shows you the locations of all the remaining collectibles to find. Otherwise, look around, explore the area and enjoy. The game is well worth it to play without a guide and its easy enough that you don't really need one, especially since it gives you the location of many of the collectibles. Just make sure that before you leave any area, you check your map and make sure it says 100%. If not, check to see if there are any glowing icons on your map. If so, that is an Orb you missed. If not, it means what you missed is either a Cube Glyph or a creature. You can check the trophy for that area for a list of everything you need to find to reach 100% completion of that Chapter as well as the locations.
The only trophies you might need to keep track of if you don't want to use Chapter Select later are the extra, hidden ones that are for doing random actions. (See Step Two for a list).
