Odyssey Interactive released a new video today detailing their first shipped game, Omega Strikers, and the future of the studio.
The developer explains that even after a targeted marketing campaign of influencers and media coverage, the game performed well at launch in its free-to-play state but failed to retain the player base. Following a release on more platforms, the same thing occurred, and the team was left to wonder what they could do to fix the gameplay to encourage players to keep playing.
However, it seemed like the skins and various updates post-launch did little to improve the player retention rate, and Odyssey had to make the difficult decision to stop development on Omega Strikers content. No new skins or premium content will be available after the game’s final update this year. After, the developer will support the game’s servers and balancing, but as for extra content, you can expect what is present after the final update to always be the same.
Still, the team is looking toward the future. They have plans to create games based on the Omega Strikers characters, which is one of the most appealing aspects of the game. Looking at player comments, it’s undeniable that Odyssey have created a fun and charming game, but the difficulty of keeping players coming back amidst an enormous year of big title releases is tough.
We wish the team the best and will continue to cover their announcements.
Omega Strikers is now available worldwide for PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, Xbox, PC via Steam, and mobile via iOS and Android.
