Gamers find an unusual link between Omikron video game and the Omicron COVID-19 variant

Behind David Bowie’s voice is an ominous connection between the game and the virus

David Bowie was known for being a multifaceted artist, as he was very good in areas such as music and acting. In fact, his ingenuity led him to compose and voice a character in the video game Omikron: The Nomad Soul, which was released in the late 1990s. But even though more than two decades have passed, conspiracy theorists have not stopped talking about the name of the game and the strong coincidence it has with the name of the new COVID-19 variant; Omicron.

This new COVID-19 variant was discovered a few days ago in South Africa, and only one letter separates it from the name of the video game. In countries such as England, the number of confirmed cases has risen to 14 since the first case of this variant was reported, which led to stricter rules on the use of masks in public places and so on.

Many game fans and conspiracy theorists went crazy with the strong link to the name and a video released as part of the game as it was compared to the current situation as the government implemented more strategies to crack down on the new-onset. It is not surprising to always see a group of people looking to relate the smallest detail to what is going on today. Although many remain in theories, it would be a lie to say that it is something that could be considered for further analysis.

The Omikron video game is still available on different gaming platforms today, so those who are interested in downloading it and seeing if it has any relation to these theories beyond the similarity of the name can do so without any inconvenience.
