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!

I love this game, only a little compliant: the x360 controller doesn't work with the dpad, only with the analog stick, any chance for adding an option for dpad users too?

Ok it's done. We didn't know that it would be a problem. Did you had any problem with Oniken in linux?

Great game,
it's been a while since i played a game that actually required some effort.
Even the first level is rock hard!

Love the graphics but the music deserves a special mention as well.

will there be a sequel?

Hi, there appears to be a bug in the bonus mission 7. The background music will play even if it is turned off in the menu, and silent in the other missions.

The Linux version appears to use a crude WINE wrapper. Be warned.
