Omen of Sorrow is a new fighting game, with a setting and characters inspired by literature, myth and classic horror.

Omen of sorrow is a fantasy fighting game, featuring the monsters of classic horror and giving them a new twist. Delve into its rich mythology, and discover its fast paced combat in classic 2-D style--as you fight for your life against werewolves, vampires and other creatures of lore.

Clear your mind, clench your fists and get ready for a wicked battle.

Omen of Sorrow's battle system is designed from the ground up to leverage player skill, rather than stats or random chance, featuring deep combat mechanics that favor movement and spacing over tight execution to provide an engaging experience for pros and newcomers alike!

By visiting many events during development, AOne games took inspiration from the community of hardcore fighting game fans. This has resulted in a refreshing new take on the genre, with a flawless online multiplayer experience. Besides online combat, Omen of Sorrow also offers players an elaborate single player mode with epic boss fights, and a local multiplayer mode to compete against friends.

Today AOne Games will launch a second public demo on PlayStation Network with American and European versions, the first one will have  Zafkiel, Gabriel y Caleb as playable characters, and the second one will have Adam instead of Caleb, both will allow players to play either in local multiplayer or singleplayer modes.

Felipe Budinich, AOne Games Marketing Director comments: “Omen of Sorrow presents a western aesthetic with gameplay rooted on the oriental arcade legacy of the genre, with features and combat mechanics that push players towards aggressive strategies.”

“With this demo, players will have in their hands a version of the game where we have polished many subtle details since the last public demo and event releases” Says Max Kubler, Executive Producer and cofounder of AOne Games.
