Today’s Spotlight is Omnibion War, an on-rails shooter inspired by mecha anime by Crazy Bullet and 1C Entertainment.
The game is set in the aftermath of a devastating intergalactic war. The Hellhounds, an organization that were once the allies of the Coalition of United Colonies, are now on a rampage across the galaxy as they try to recover an ancient and powerful superweapon.
Jump into the cockpit of one of the CUC’s most advanced weapons, a transformable space fighter, and stop the Hellhounds at any cost. You can check out the launch trailer below.
Omnibion War is available on Windows PC via Steam for $6.99.
You can find a rundown of the game (via Steam) below:
5 years have passed since the victory of the Coalition of United Colonies over the Omnigans. But the fragile times of peace and prosperity were again disrupted. Once CUC allies, The Hellhounds now unleash chaos and violence throughout the galaxy. They will stop at nothing in order to gain control of Omnibion, a powerful ancient device created by the Omnigans.
Become Jaeden, ace pilot of the late “Icarus” squad and strap yourself in as you again fire up the mighty engines of the A.A.V.G. gunship. Its immense firepower and the ability to rapidly transform between a space jet and a flying mech make it the humanity’s most advanced fighting machine.
Take full advantage of its destructive potential and put your pilot skills to the test against the incoming Hellhound hordes in various parts of the galaxy. Diverse mission objectives will take you to the vacuum of space, lava deserts or underwater worlds of distant planets. Load up your guns and upgrade your mech as you fight to save the galaxy once and for all!
Omnibion War takes its inspiration from classic on-rails shooters of the past such as Aces of the Galaxy, Panzer Dragoon and the Star Fox series.
Throwback to the simpler times when shoot’em ups and arcade shooters were ruling the market and allowed us to spent countless hours both in arcades and at home, blasting our way through increasingly difficult enemies.
Omnibion War is an indie game through and through, developed by a 2-men studio from Chile as a passion project and homage to the aforementioned times in the 90’ and very early 2000’.
