PLOT[]

Omori is a game about a 16-year old boy named SUNNY that has became a hikikomori after his older sister (MARI)'s death.

In HEADSPACE, OMORI and his friends set out to find BASIL (another friend) once they are informed BASIL has gone missing,

The Secrets [1][]

WTF Value[]

Fans of Undertale are already aware of a developer's propensity for hidden yet alluring RNG interactions. In Undertale, there are different interactions and secrets attached to what has been dubbed the "Fun Value." The player is given a random number at the start of the game that determines what secret experiences they may enjoy (if any).

Omori has its own random experience generator known as the "WTF Value" that activates after leaving Neighbor's Room for the first time. Much like in Undertale, this can dictate some new interactions and even change certain scenes.

The Save Screen Is Sunny's Wallpaper[]

While the exact meaning or intention of this detail may be lost on people still playing the game, those who have experienced at least the ending of the Normal Route know how subtle details like this can mean so much to the main protagonist.

Throughout the game, the background for the save screen will be this ascending array of vines and flowers. This is actually the wallpaper found in Sunny's house; and if fans catch it, these are very apparent in Basil's hidden photos.

You Can Name Yourself Omocat[]

While the naming screen may not seem that special for longtime fans of video games, Omori actually does lock the player from choosing certain names, namely those of the main cast.

However, the game does allow for one internal reference to slip through by allowing the player to name themselves after the developer herself, Omocat. Doing so even unlocks an achievement for cheeky players.

The TV In Neighbor's Room Has A Pokemon/Stand By Me Reference[]

It's no secret that Omori is heavily influenced by Omocat's favorite RPGs and is littered with a few inspired materials and references here and there. One that may fly right by the player is found just within Neighbor's Room. Looking at the TV prompts the simple statement:

There's a movie on TV. Four boys are walking on railroad tracks. I'd better go too.

Some fans may simply notice this as a reference to the acclaimed film, Stand By Me. However, this scene more directly references a moment in the Japanese version of Pokémon Red and Blue, where the player can interact with a TV and a similar piece of dialogue appears.

Hector Can Be Found At Dino's Dig[]

While on the surface, Omori's main plot may revolve around finding Basil and having Sunny face his inner demons. However, true fans know what the real story is all about: Helping Kel find his pet rock, Hector. Despite Kel initially crying about this a couple of times and the loss of a Charm being sorely missed during the game's early stages, this side quest isn't mentioned much throughout the game.

It isn't until the player finds Dino's Dig and searches in the plot to the upper right of the first level that they'll reunite the two...kind of. An extended sequence plays here, and Kel eventually ends up with a successor to his beloved pet rock.

The Floating Mirror Jump Scare[]

MIRROR (from the omori wiki)

"Your friends smile warmly behind you." (This GIF is originally from the OMORI WIKI, here's the page that this gif is in.)

One of the nicest, subtle touches to the game is the inclusion of the various, floating mirrors scattered across the dream world. These interactable pieces allow for brief, albeit often repetitive, moments for the player to appreciate Omori's time with his friends.

However, smarter players may realize that, in a horror game, this kind of a repetition can only lead to a jump scare. For those willing to go back to the mirrors again and again across the game, they'll eventually be rewarded during the late game with the unique animation that they were looking for.

There's A Secret Ending For Watering Basil's Plants[]

This one's deceptively easy to miss yet incredibly important towards enhancing the ending of the Normal Route. During the tutorial, the game hints that the player may need to water Basil's plants later; but given that Omori and co. never really need to go back to the garden until later in the game, many players often leave Basil's plants to die.

Consistently watering them not only grants the player more heart but allows them to experience an extended sequence to the ending.

The Slime Girls' Mystery Potion Turns Omori Into A Girl[]

Plenty of secrets within the game are hidden behind its illustrious Hikikomori Route. For those willing to forego the down-to-earth, nostalgic adventures in the real world, the game opens up so many more activities and secrets for the player to enjoy. One of the interesting changes happens when the player returns to Humphrey.

After helping Medusa, Omori will receive a Mystery Potion that will turn his character into a girl. Besides the aesthetic change, this will also allow Omori to enter the girls' bathroom at Last Resort. While there, the player can notice a string of pictures and plants at the top similar to one found at Basil's house.

The Old Black Space Rooms Are Scattered Across The Hikikomori Route[]

The rooms in Black Space were haunting and distorted fragments of Sunny's past and imagination that the player gets to interact with after winning the Hangman game. While one might think that Sunny would be done with these for good after continuing with the Hikikomori Route at the end, the past just won't quit haunting him.

In the "One Day Left..." portion of the Hikikomori Route, the various rooms from Black Space are hidden in different parts of the map and can only be interacted with once more before disappearing.

The Original Track From Undertale's Toby Fox[]

While the two games are fundamentally different across different areas, one can't deny that there are certain thematic and tonal similarities between Omori and Undertale. One of the clearest indications of the kindship between the two games is found behind the Jackson poster in Hobbeez.

After interacting with it and "defeating" Jackson, the Merry CD will fall out behind the poster. Playing it in a jukebox will play an original track from the creator of Undertale himself, Toby Fox.
