Next Wednesday (Feb 5th) Oniken (  http://oniken.net ) will be available on Steam .

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 ).  

About JoyMasher

JoyMasher (  http://joymasher.com ) is an indie game studio founded by Danilo Dias, Thais Weiller and Marco Galvão on early 2012. Studio focus on creating gaming experiences closest possible to 8 and 16-bit era games with a touch of contemporary concepts. Besides Oniken, JoyMasher also made available for free download MRC6-454 and Major Maox, two short games that represent our game design goals.
