Rockstar Games, developers of the PS2 version of Oni, is giving away long-sleeve Oni shirts. All you have to do is go to this page and complete all fields. Please note that this competition is open to U.S. residents only.

New OniShots contest

Argh. The deadline for this contest is in two days and I'm sure most of you know about this. But I owe it to Bongo to at least post about it here. Check out hosted site Oni Shots for details!

Oni in print - new scans

I've received a bunch of new scans of Oni in various magazines; MacFormat, MacAddict and EGM contributed by Claude Errera and CrazyBooBooKitty.

MacFormat loved Oni whilst EGM calls it "infuriating", among other things. MacAddict has a page on cheating in Oni. All well worth checking out, and many thanks to those that scanned!


Whew, exams are over and I'm free. Please accept my apologies for the terrible lack of news updates. It's been a busy month for me, but now all the worst is behind me!

More on new Oni game

I received more information from my source: Oni's engine will be rebuilt, seeing how the current one seemed "inadequate" for the developers of the sequel. Chances of seeing anything new on Oni at E3 are slim, though.

Make sure you vote at the new poll, asking if a sequel or add-on is better.

Oni sequel is in development

I received information from a reliable source close to the industry that wishes to remain anonymous that a sequel to Oni is in the works.

Furthermore, Take 2 is wanting to get multiplayer working and may show something at E3 this May. Stay tuned to Oni Central as more details emerge.
