You are CHAD DANIELS a teenage boy living with his aunt in the projects of Trace Town. Coming down on hard times, his aunt enrolls him in a military program in Lezeer to help her cover the bills. Intimidated by its reputation as "death capital," Chad attempts to skip town for the night to dodge recruiters. In his closet, he comes across a child who panics and disappears in a show of light.

Discovering that his aunt has also disappeared and undead walking the streets, Chad realizes that despite looking the same, this world isn't the one he knows. Rescued by an angel who calls him the "Diamond," he becomes Allumia's only hope against the Onyx, a gem of reality-altering power pursued by a deranged ex-knight who'll stop at nothing to seize it. She can have it. All Chad wants is to return home. But with a slew of demons wanting him dead as much as they want the Onyx, this is one responsibility he can't run away from.

CALLING ALL BETA TESTERS!

I'm in dire need of beta testers. I test played this game 2x in a row but I still feel like I might have missed something.

I know RPGM 2000 is super vintage at this point, so finding a tester will be an uphill battle. But I figured I'd try anyway.

koth shouldn't have got his points for that review. I strongly disagree, the game is not that bad.
I really enjoyed this game! Each character has a unique personality, specialty, spell set and weapons. The interaction between the characters is enjoyable and sometimes made me laugh out loud. The characters' images are all(?) original as well. I particularly the maps - I like NOT having to hobble through a twisting maze of obstacles or along paths that make you go sideways a step for every step forward - yet you still have to be attentive to find your way around.

I just finished Onyx 2: Clinging Soul and give that one a top rating as well.
I feel so pity for Chantal, she wasn't that bad, she was just used by Genna, and there was a reason for her to get Onyx.. I hope this ONYX game can be made again in another version, with Chantal joined to Chad teams.. this game is TOTALLY AWESOME..!
AHHHH...where'd everybody go???. Not sure if there is a glitch in the game or not, but when Royle joined the team, everyone but Chad disappeared. Any idea what happened?...or are they hiding somewhere? Help please.
What do you mean? Are they no longer on your team? If that's so case, then just check the Hubby and re-form your party.
I'm currently playing the demo of ANISC so i think i should play this, since most of your games look good
Thanks. =)


Just be warned, Onyx was my first "series" project so it hasn't aged to well. But the story was well received back in its day, so I hope you enjoy it nonetheless. :p
Hey man i m at the part where i go to the building where this monster that kidnaps girls is you know right after Joseph says he wants to leave, but i think i got a bug. You see only Chad is in the party nobody else. How am i supposed to win like this? Is it a bug or you made it intentionally to raise the difficulty?
Hmmmmm, have you checked the Hubby? You can find it in your menu screen. That's where your teammates are. You should be able to choose your own party members by that point, if I'm not mistaken.
OH Yeah i think you re right. The guy from the first town gave me this item but i compeletely forgot to check it out. Shame on me :( Sorry for the trouble
By the way i really enjoyed A Nightmare in Sunnydale, California. Even though it has been long time since i played it :)
Haha, it's no trouble at all. I'm glad you enjoyed Sunnydale. =) It was/is a pleasure to make.
I've been playing Onyx and really enjoy this game. Unfortunately I've his a snag in the form of a major bug that makes the game unplayable.

After the 2nd boss battle with Justina, and the cut scene involving Tari and Navia I gain control of, I'm assuming it's supposed to be chad, but I can't see my character which makes the game impossible to play from that point on. I can send you my save file if you need it for debugging purposes but I hope you can find, or have already make a fix for this bug as I'd love to be able to finish this game.
Oh, yeah. Absolutely. Definitely send it to me.

Funny how this bug managed to slip by for all these years. lol I suppose people have been managing to get through the game in spite of it. O.o
That is strange. Ether no one's bothered to report it, which would be very weird considering the drastic effect that bug has on game play, or I'm the first one to uncover it. :p
Hey Yeaster, how's it going?

I just completed O N Y X, and I thought the experience was...in word INCREDIBLE!

It may have some serious problems with its difficulty curve, and there were quite a few bug related crashes, requiring me to reload earlier saves, but the game was so engaging it's not even funny! I absolutely LOVED the plot twists you put in, especially the ending. And your dialogue....oh dear was it amazing!

Thank you Yeaster! Thank you very very much!

Oh, and I should probably mention this as well. I also played Total Chaos game as well. It and this showed me that you can do drama with bits of comedy, and seriousness at the same time so well. I swear, you have to be the only person in the world that can put but Lindsay Lohan in a game as a main character, and really knock one out of the park at the same time!

Thank you for being so good at what you have created!
*gasp* Thank you so much!!! =D

Yeah, Onyx (and TC, too) is a rough around the edges, but every time I think of Onyx, my mind immediately takes me back to 2005/06, which was a special time for me, so it's become kind of sentimental to me. I treat it like an old teddy bear. I'm so happy you enjoyed it!

And I absolutely adore Total Chaos, so it makes me smile when others enjoy it, as well.

Hi there,

I've read this and started to play ONYX. It's so great, I love it. But now I stuck - can't find the second fear room in Vereo (?) Tower. Got the Dagi Beater, have to start again - OK - but can't find the way to proceed. My English is terrible, hope you can understand me...

Can you help ?

Kind regards
