David Bowie in 'Omikron: The Nomad Soul'

Yup, those weekend plans just got made. Video game publisher Square Enix is honoring music maven and cultural icon David Bowie by giving out free copies of a 1999 video game that he contributed to, Quantic Dream’s Omikron: The Nomad Soul.

In addition to composing music for the game (most of which is on his 'Hours....' album), Bowie portrayed a space-age rocker (because, of course) and a techno renegade in Omikron, which will be available until Jan. 22. His wife, Iman, also appeared in the 1999 game.
