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!

I just bought this game as part of The Indie Gala bundle (and i only bought it for this game as it looks totally ace!) but when I try to run the game in Desura it sends back an error saying "Desura failed to locate a CD key. Status: The game you have redeemed does not allow you to request additional keys."

Any idea on what that means and how to fix it?

Two things about this game, based on my first session with it:
1) It's awesome so far.
2) It's one of the few indie games that uses retro graphics properly, rather than featuring old school for old school's sake.

I love the way this game looks, but it hasn't worked with my XBOX Madcatz controller. Can u guys fix this bug in a patch or whatever. I tried the XBOX and generic control and it didn't work. Also can u make it that my game be downloadable to steam as well? I have greenlighted it in steam already. I love this game the story and feel reminds me of Fist of the Star and hero Kenshiro with some other anime favs.

Hey Tazi!
I'm currently researching a way to add d-pad for xbox360, for a new game that I've been working on. If it works I'll add this on Oniken too ok?
