Nomad Soul

The late great David Bowie once played a principal role in a video game, Omikron: The Nomad Soul, developed by Quantic Dream (of Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls fame). Now, David Cage's 1999 sci-fi adventure has been made free for a week to commemorate the passing of the legendary glam rock star who fell to earth.

David Bowie dies aged 69

The stars look very different today.

Music legend David Bowie has died aged 69 after a battle with cancer. He only released his latest album Blackstar on his birthday on Friday.

David Cage is a man of extraordinary vision. Whether you believe his games match his ambition is a very personal thing. I will argue with you that Fahrenheit is one of the most exciting games I've ever played, even though it's broken in about 657 ways. Perhaps this is what's most exciting about Quantic Dream's output. However, I cannot find a similar love for Omikron: The Nomad Soul. And that's not because I can't run it on my PC.
