The game that will be released on Steam is a refined version of the original Oniken, with updated graphics, new and rearranged soundtracks, stage rebalancing, Steam integration features such as leaderboards and achievements, and the new Hardcore mode. In this new gameplay mode, player must beat the game in one run without continues which guarantees extra points to the final score and revelations about the real ending.

Oniken is an action platformer, highly inspired by 8-bit games of the late 1980’s and early 1990’s made by Brazilian indie group JoyMasher (  http://joymasher.com ).
