Hey all! I am still on hiatus (figuring out what project to do and dealing with non-game-development related things). Due to various circumstances, I ended up working on Oneons again after more than six months!
I really have mixed feelings about this game. On the one hand, it’s my first Steam game. On the other hand, it’s not for everyone (it’s short and quite difficult).
Regardless, this update changes one thing a number of players complained about: the difficulty. The original game brutalizes you (even on early floors if you don’t know what you’re doing). This update significantly reduces the difficulty by adding two things:
1) Rescuing Oneons is permanent! The boost to your health, energy, and damage persists across all games, it no longer resets when you die.
2) I added a new heal skill with a moderate cost and healing amount, which also cures poison. You can use it any time, like Psi Blast.
Long-time readers may remember that persistence existed in the game jam version back in March 2020, but I removed it later. Well, turns out it makes the game much more accessible (easier).
If you played Oneons but never finished it, consider giving it another try. And if you haven’t played it, it’s modestly priced at $5 USD, why not give it a go?
You can grab the game below, on Steam. Enjoy, and let me know your thoughts here (hit reply) or on Discord!
