developer: Tokyo RPG Factory
publisher : Square-Enix / Eidos
Game mode: single player
Oninaki takes us to a fantastic world where every soul awaits reincarnation after death. However, in order for her to start a new life, the ties between her and her previous life must first be broken and her loved ones cannot afford to mourn. Otherwise, souls called Lost wandering through the dangerous underworlds.
The main character of the game is Kagachi - one of the Observers with the ability to move between the lands of the living and the dead, whose task is to keep order in the first one and to help the Lost.
In Oninaki the action was shown from a bird's eye view. In the course of the game, we travel through various locations, and when conducting conversations with the neutral characters living in them, we take on new tasks. In many of them there are also numerous adversaries waiting for us, which we eliminate, using both a wide range of white weapons and magical abilities. The latter provide us with rescued souls as a token of gratitude for the help they have received.
Unlike Tokyo RPG Factor's earlier works, the clashes take place in real time, and during the clashes it is necessary to show reflexes and dexterity in order to effectively avoid hostile blows and carry out quick counter-attacks.
Oninaki has three-dimensional graphics maintained in a colorful, manga style, which in terms of quality of workmanship presents a level similar to the previous achievements of these authors.
