Why Is Omori Crashing?

You’re not able to save the game in Omori until you get out to the picnic area to meet with Mari and Basil. That means if your game crashes before then, you’ll have to start the game again. It’s not that big of a deal; it’s only about five to ten minutes before you get to the picnic area, depending on how fast you have your text speed.

The crashing in Omori is related to compatibility issues with a gamepad.

For now, there’s nothing you can do to fix the gamepad compatibility issue in Omori besides using the default gamepad settings. The compatibility issue in Omori is caused by players trying to change button assignments. If you’re experiencing Omori crashing, try:

  • Resetting the game and only using the default gamepad settings.
  • Using the keyboard settings instead.

Omocat has explained that an Omori gamepad hotpatch is coming soon to rectify the crashing, but following these tips, for now, is a temporary fix.
