Omega Quintet is out now!

You there! Run (don't walk, run) to the Steam Store: Omega Quintet is out now!!

And with an awesome 40% discount, the game is just $17.99, so make sure you take advantage of this great deal and pick up the game before 4th January 2018, when it will return to its standard price of $29.99.

We're delighted that you can now play Omega Quintet on Steam: a game I know we all really enjoyed working on.

So, what is Omega Quintet?

Humanity is in peril! A deadly phenomenon known only as 'Blare' threatens to consume all life on earth and is eating away at the minds of humans worldwide. No conventional forces can stop this evil foe as it continues to spread worldwide but in one city, a small population is getting ready to make a stand...

Enter the Verse Maidens: five exceptional girls with powerful musical abilities are the only ones who offer any hope. These inspiring, adorable idols must use their powers of song and dance to wipe out the Blare forever. Now the Verse Maidens’ strength and courage are all that’s left to protect the people, their hopes and their dreams…

Omega Quintet is a hybrid JRPG and Idol Simulation. Use your five super-cute idols’ sound weapons against the Blare’s evil forces. Build an arsenal of deadly attacks and skills and hype up your fans to unlock powerful combo attacks.

· Every battle is a stage, so play to the crowd! In Concert Mode gain a boost from your music, fill your Voltage Gauge faster and unlock your most powerful special skills.

· Extensively customize your idols’ looks. Change outfits, accessories, hair and mics. Be careful enemies don’t hit you with an outfit-busting “Costume Break”, leaving you vulnerable to attack and red-faced in front of your fans!

· Sing your foes into oblivion using the “Harmonics” system: weave different idols’ skills into incredibly deadly chain combos. Add each skill in the correct order to multiply the pain!

· Use the powerful PVS system to choreograph and produce unique music videos of your idols greatest hits. Then use your mouse to throw in extra effects during the concert!

Here at Ghostlight we've really enjoyed working on what we consider to be a brilliant JRPG and some of IFI's finest work to date, but in case you think we're a little bit biased, check out these reviews:

In their 4.5/5 review, Digitally Downloaded were huge fans, saying: "This is, effectively, an independent game from a small, creative team.  And it’s a massive success at being that.  It’s a deep JRPG mixed with both satire and humour, it’s something you haven’t seen before, and most importantly: it’s fun.  Real, genuine fun."

RPGSite gave Omega Quintet a very solid 7/10, saying: "Far and away, the best feature in Omega Quintet are the battles themselves.  Compile Heart put a lot of work into providing a complex system."

Meanwhile Rice Digital said “Omega Quintet is an amazing title and a great start to the new generation of consoles for Compile Heart.”

Before I go I'd just like to say a huge thank you to our truly amazing team of beta testers, who all worked so hard to help us make the PC release of Omega Quintet as good as it could possibly be. We really do appreciate all the help you give us. Thanks again, to all of you! :D

That’s all for now, so there's nothing stopping you from heading over to the Steam store right this instant and checking out Omega Quintet. :)
