What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to have our game grow in the community by listening to what they like and do not like and react accordingly by updating and patching different portions of the game to make it as fun as it can be!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Somni should be out of early access roughly by the start of 2022”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“There is a possibility that we may create a desktop playable version, and possibly more entities or environments.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current state of Somni allows you to speak with the entity through a séance, defeat the entity through rituals, become posessed by the entity, effectively hide from and distract the entity, and investigate using various tools to discover what kind of entity you are dealing with.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“It will be determined based on how much has been added to the last update before early access ends however at this point in time we have no intentions on raising the price of the game when it leaves early access!”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Listening to emails, surveys, and tweets about Somni. We will be watching content creators who play our game to see how we can make it even more enjoyable for both the player and their viewers. Lastly with a large enough community we will be doing polls on twitter to see what the community would like for us to work on next to make the game better!”

Somni 1.2.0 Is Live!

Ethereals and Cryptids have both had major overhauls and we are proud to announce this update is live and ready for you to enjoy!

Plenty of unique perks are now available for you to choose from to help you survive. Be careful though, dying at any time will destroy the perk entirely and you will need to work up enough money to purchase it again or try a different perk!

About This Game

The two types of Entities you will encounter in Somni are Ethereals which are Ghost-Like Entities and Cryptids which are Physical Entities

Ethereals are aggressive Entities and will search everywhere to try to find you. They will destroy doors and hiding spots to cut off your escape routs.

Cryptids are physical beings that bleed, and the only way to deter one from chasing you is to fight back with superior firepower. Completing a Cryptid ritual will summon the ritual weapon, which is the only firearm capable of ending its life for good.

Every Cryptid has its own Special Ability and Kill Reward that is unique for that Cryptid. Working around these abilities and advantages is critical for your survival.
  • Switching Your Playstyle

    When up against an Ethereal it is best to hide under beds or in closets to avoid being spotted. These types of Entities are confined to a residence and can corner a player if they aren't perceptive enough. Cryptids are always present in their open environments. Hiding behind containers and firing your weapon only when necessary gives you the best chance to survive.
  • Unique Perks and Abilities

    Use your earnings from banishing the entity to try out the 11 Abilities available to choose from in the Perk Shop. Each Perk is special and useful for different situations and dependent on the opponent you will be up against!
  • Become Fully Immersed

    Somni is playable on both a Virtual Reality Headset, on your Desktop with a Mouse and Keyboard, and on a Gamepad.
  • No One Left Out!

    Up to 6 Player Online Co-Op and a Server Browser with Proximity Chat that allows players to connect and share their experience
  • Not Only Cryptids

    Amalgamations are insect-like clusters of bone that roam mostly around Cryptid Environments. They are as fast as the player and can kill just as fast as the Cryptid itself. Keep them at a safe distance and stay out of their sight.

    Somni's VR experience has been improved in this most recent update. Somni is best experienced by being fully immersed in a virtual reality headset. Experience fear like never before by facing the cryptid and amalgamations with all the odds stacked against you... will you be able to survive?
