    This was the last post Davaris made about Omega Syndrome back in 2017. I doubt he'll mind/care if anyone shares it.

    I found this guy a few months ago. He is a modern gamer convert who goes through the history of RPGs, plays and reviews them. His reviews tend to be a bit dry, but his heart is clearly in the right place.
    And he most likely learned about the game from The Codex. Link to this thread is in the description of the video.

    I remember playing this through the CRPG winter of 04 or 05? It was ok. The devs penchant for permadeath was pretty annoying though. He refused to budge on that, in spite of plenty of people asking him to make an alternate option. There was another game around the same time that caused a bit of excitement, Prelude to Darkness, but it was full of crash and freeze bugs, and I never got very far in it. I still can't believe how fucked that time was for CRPG's, coming right off the highs of the late 90's/early 00's. Thanks for tracking this one down guys

    The version available here is the one where ironman can be turned off. So you can enjoy the game in its final shape without fear of randomly dying (which happens a lot, encounter table is fucked) and loosing all progress.
