Polsk(maybe incorrect symbols)

Omikron - The Nomad Soul is an action/adventure game for PC and Dreamcast that takes place in a parallel universe - the city of Omikron - that is covered by a crystal dome. - Published by Eidos Interactive in November 1999.

Plunged into the heart of this futuristic city, the player must find Astaroth the demon of the Last Circle, who tries to steal his soul. Thanks to Virtual Reincarnation, the player can change bodies at will and thus avail of the different skills of the characters in which he is incarnated.


The game is entirely in 3D real time. Players can visit the immense city of Omikron, with its hundreds of passers-by, air-cushion vehicles, its day/night cycles and its random weather. Behind each door in the city lies a real decor. The player can thus go for a drink in a bar, buy a book in a bookshop, look for medication in a pharmacy or go to watch a strip tease show.
He can also go back to his apartment to watch hologram television.

In Omikron-The Nomad Soul, the player can explore the universe, dialog with the characters, interact with the environment, fight with hands/feet, use weapons, make and cast spells, drive air-cushion vehicles and reincarnate.

He can also go to one of the secret places in Omikron where the forbidden group "The Dreamers" is playing, and in which the singer is none other than David Bowie. Immersion is at the heart of the game. After living in Omikron, you won't want to come back to our dimension. Go to the amazing Omikron universe and plunge into the most amazing adventure ever recounted in 3D real time.

Subject: Problems running "Omikron : The Nomad Soul" under Windows XP

We received many e-mails reporting problems running "Omikron : The Nomad Soul" under Windows XP. Released in 1999 months before Windows XP came out, "Omikron : The Nomad Soul" has therefore never been tested or certified to be compatible with what was - at the time - still a "soon to be" operating system. Please, make sure your version of Windows XP has its "Windows 98 compatibility mode" activated. If so, and if you are still experiencing problems, please contact Eidos or the customer services of the shop where you bought the game for a refund.
