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!

Oniken v2.0 is available!

Today I tried to reddem a key to Desura and Steam and it was not working on any platform:

Steam: Invalid product key

Desura: The product key could not be found. You cannot accept it.

I emailed joymasher and hope to receive a working key soon.

Something wrong with their keys...

I've personally used my "Unlock Key" from the July Jubilee Bundle once a day since release on Steam. Nothing. I've also emailed the guys at joymasher about the issue. Also to no avail.

You're most likely not getting a Steam key for Oniken. And after this long, do any of you really care? I don't, after having played it for the first time earlier today. It's not that great. And they're not in a hurry to get our Steam keys sorted out. EVERY game ever in a bundle has had a Steam key within a couple days.

For those who bought the game before Steam release, send your existing key to keys@joymasher.com and they will sort it out for you, just mention that it's for Oniken. That's what the devs told me on their Facebook page for Oniken.
