Oniken is a 2D platform action indie game that make use of 8-bit graphic style. My friend Pedro Paiva and I are putting a great effort to guarantee that this game feels really like an 8 bit classic. Everything on Oniken, from the character design to the music, is a tribute to the 8-bit action games from the NES era. So if you like old-school games be prepared for Oniken and remember... Oniken is NES hard! By purchasing Oniken, you will also get with no extra charging Oniken´s Manual and Original Sound Track composed by Thommaz Kauffmann, Bruno Araujo and N-Freq. *** Mac and Linux version uses wrappers. They're not a port, however in almost every machine that we tested the game it runs without any problem. However if you had a problem please e-mail us!

Odallus is an action retro game with exploration elements. This is a bigger and more complex project as Oniken so we need some help in order to make it better. Please, help us on our indie gogo campaign:

Awesome game! Enjoyed the demo & decided to download it from Desura. I will support any developer that releases quality retro games.

Congratulations on getting greenlit on Steam :) I think the game deserves as much attention as it can possibly get. I was wondering if people who bought it on Desura would also get a Steam key when one's available, or would they have to buy the game anew on Steam?

Hum... I'm using DS3 Tool to play using my ps3 controller. Oniken reconizes the dpad with it.

This game is really awesome! Nice and charismatic 8-bits graphics mashed up with great soundtrack and gameplay. It's dificult, yes, but in a very, very addictive way. Nostalgic and yet somehow unique!

This is one of those games where you get better the more you play it! Then the ironman runs become more fun and better.
