Omission

In today's age of texting and social media, we pride ourselves on our ability to 'read typos'. Our eyes have adapted to overlook misspellings and missing letters.

Omission challenges you to put your language detective skills to the test with a deceptively simple challenge: Find the missing letter! A famous quotation will be displayed, with all the instances of a single letter removed. For example...

"O be or no o be, ha is he quesion."

How fast can you figure out the missing letter? It's a race to beat the clock (unless you choose another mode) as you try to complete as many passages as you can. The faster you answer, the more points you gain.

But don't let your guard down! Omission is designed to conceal any evidence of the missing letter, and that's enough to sometimes stump even the professional writers who designed it!

NEWS: Release Delayed

Unexpected technical problems related to building and packaging have plagued this project for quite some time. We've decided to stop fighting with the library we were using, and rewrite Omission using a more amenable toolkit. This will take some time, but this game WILL be completed as soon as possible!
