Oni Onsen Rises from the Ashes!

by: Jenna Redding

Y Press Games just found out their main vendor will be selling Oni Onsen after all, despite rejecting the game at first. This change of the game’s fortune made owner Yamila Abraham decide to give the yaoi visual novel another chance on Kickstarter.

The original Kickstarter launched in April of this year did not meet its funding goal, and the game was canceled as a result. This time, a lower goal is sought, and the rewards are scaled back. The Harem/Poly route is now planned as a DLC, rather than a route in the main game.

Oni Onsen is Y Press Games’ most ambitious game to date. A gorgeous visual novel set in feudal Japan, where samurai Asano tries to get his onsen back from his corrupt master, but finds it is now haunted by four frisky and attractive oni.

The art in the game is some of the best Y Press has produced to date, and the demo game presented an introduction that was at times laugh-out-loud funny, yet also engrossing, poignant, and sweet. (It’s really worth a play if you haven’t already, you can grab it here.)

It’s wonderful to see this gorgeous and beautifully written game being given another chance.

We’re asking our readers to step up if they’re able. Please support the Kickstarter, or if you’re unable to afford this, you can also help by spreading the word. Here is a tweet you could retweet to help out CHECK IT OUT HERE
