After launching earlier this year on PC and PlayStation 4 Omensight will soon arrive on Switch. The indie “action murder mystery” game will launch on December 13 ($19.99). You can pre-order it up to a week before launch for a 10% discount (Dec. 6-13).

Omensight stars the Harbinger, a spiritual warrior summoned to the land of Urralia during its destruction. The Harbinger possess a limited form of time-travel, allowing them the power to relive the final day. Think Groundhog Day, or The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask.

The Harbinger will need to uncover the mystery of the world’s destruction by making choices of whom to destroy and whom to ally with.

Omensight is from indie developer Spearhead Games, who previously made Stories: Path of Destinies. Stories also involved branching paths and choices alongside combo driven third-person action gameplay. The studio is becoming known for its cel-shaded art style and a rich focus on story and voice acting.

The game features the voice acting talents of Patricia Summersett (Breath of the Wild) and Julian Casey (Stories: Path of Destinies) and a writing team including Chris Avellone (Pillars of Eternity).

Omensight is rated T for Teen for Violence, Blood, Mild Language, and Alcohol. It’s currently available on PC (Steam) and PlayStation 4. The Switch version is out December 13.
