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 OnikenĀ“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!

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.

An Ode To Oniken Steam Key

Please Oniken Steam key, why are you not there?
I looked in my Desura page, and found the content bare
I scoured through my Groupee profile, but slumped back into my chair
Steam keys we were promised to us, to the Desura buying heir
But as the seasons pass us, I sit with icy glare
It's no wonder Oniken Steam key, why I'm starting not to care
Please find us Oniken Steam key, and kindly tell us where
to find you oh sweet Oniken, before we lose all our hair

Try using the Desura key from the Groupees page.

I got this game from the Groupees Retro Bundle, and it worked for me.

You do not need to use Connect to get the Steam key.

You can just use the Desura Key on Steam and it will activate the game on Steam.

Some work, some definitely don't. Depends on which bundle you bought I suppose. I bought it a number of times, and even tried shoving a wellington boot in the activation box. It don't work if you like apples is my guess. I like apples, can't help it. Cox's Pippin, Granny Smith, you couldn't make it up.

Doesn't work for me. I tried that, and it said my key had been activated on a different account. :/
I'll most likely check with Indie Gala about it later. That, or look into it with the devs. But for now I'll just wait for a few days to see if I hear anything else about it. Seems like others might be facing the same issues.
