The first game "Omega Strikers" developed by Odyssey Interactive, a team comprising former senior developers of "League of Legends", has been introduced to various platforms, including PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X | S, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices. "Omega Strikers," this action game centers around 3v3 ball competitive battles. Its distinctive gameplay mechanics have been a sensation, fostering a novel encounter within the realm of cross-platform engagements.
Merging the gameplay essence of "League of Legends" with the competitive framework of soccer, "Omega Strikers" features a dynamic three-round aerial field hockey clash. Within this dynamic game, players are empowered to select from a diverse lineup of more than 15 prominent strikers, employing strategies such as hurling slimes, flinging tofu, and harnessing rocket propulsion to oust opponents from the arena and emerge victorious.
Established in 2020 by ex-Riot Games visionaries Dax Andrus, David Capurro, Eric Lawless, and Richard Henkel, Odyssey Interactive stands as a game studio defined by its extensive development expertise and fervent commitment to crafting exceptional gaming experiences. With an illustrious track record involving applauded titles like "League of Legends" and "Team Flight Tactics," the team's inaugural launch, "Omega Strikers," marks a milestone since the studio's inception.
In terms of the game's inspiration, Odyssey Interactive began without a predetermined game genre, instead prioritizing intuitive controls, simplicity, and distinctive gameplay as their core aspirations. Following explorations of varied game mechanics, the team ultimately oriented the game's central design around popular ball sports, utilizing a fling mechanic to infuse the gameplay with vigor and enjoyment.
The game's art styles find their roots in the team's deep affection for anime, seamlessly melding Western elements with an anime foundation to create an original visual identity. Leveraging his background as the former Chief Champion Designer of "League of Legends" and co-founder of Odyssey Interactive, David Capurro expertly channeled his knowledge in MOBA design, character intricacies, and special abilities to conceive character designs brimming with hope and vibrancy.
In the pursuit of enhancing gameplay fluidity, Odyssey Interactive developed the "PvP Combat System" exclusively for "Omega Strikers." Within this framework, each character is equipped with a fundamental attack and three special abilities, serving dual purposes of ball control and combat engagement. Furthermore, as a character's HP depletes, a temporary stun ensues, during which players can exploit skills to expel opponents from the arena, delaying their reentry into the ongoing match.
Winking Studios was particularly honored to collaborate with the talented Odyssey Interactive, contributing comprehensive art outsourcing support, including the creation of 2D artwork, model design, rigging, and special effects animations. This collective effort significantly enriched the visual tapestry of the gaming experience.
"Omega Strikers" transcends the realm of a multiplayer sports game, evolving into a fusion of strategy and skills. Mastery of unique movement, attack, and obstacle-creation abilities, coupled with astute game control at pivotal moments, is the definitive formula for attaining victory.
