The game is set in modern times, the year 2014. You are playing as CHAD DANIELS, a rather "moody" teenage boy who, unfortunately, lost his mother to a disease. His father ran out on him, and his Aunt is constantly sick.

Trying to be the best nephew you can, you assist your Aunt by trying to find her a pillow from your storage room...but...there's someone inside...a little boy.

You ask the little boy to identify himself. Instead, he screams and runs off.

Confused by the event, you go to check up on your Aunt...but she's gone, and to make matters worse, you begin to hear monstrous sounds coming from outside your front door. You are saved by an angel, who explains to you that the kid is actually the "Onyx Boy", one who knows of the location of the Onyx, an object of pursuit by many powerful forces. The angel calls you the "Peditra", the only one who can connect with the Onyx Boy and destroy the Onyx.

So now you're left with two options...help save the new world of Allumia, which is nearly exactly like your old home...or, find a way back to your own original world. Which one would you choose?

Hi,

Is there a download to test this new version, or are you taking comments into accounts to make modifications on the game? I remember playing the two Onyx and Total Chaos and they were pretty solid, though the battles could be tiedous to handle at times. I would gladly replay these if you remake them.


Total Chaos isn't getting a re-release. But if anyone's interested in testing Onyx's re-release, I will for sure use them! =)

maybe at least can be able to swamp members of my part during the zycon demon attack in the remake or something?

Because Royle is kinda underleved after zycon compared with everyone else

If you're talking about the part where Tari is the lead character, you've always been able to choose your party during this section. =)

If you're talking about when Royle first joins, I will certainly keep an eye on this.
Talking about the part when tari is the leader... because i cant change party members once out of the house


I figured. I made it so you can at least enter and leave the dungeon at will. And speaking of the dungeons, many of them have been shortened significantly.

There will be a guide, and the items will be the same.
At least the new version will actually shar ethe same items than the guide or something

is true that you gain some bonuses from transfer saving from onyx 1 to onyx 2,?
also, there is some plus for using your old onyx 1 save slot into the new onyx 1?


No bonuses. Onyx 1 was made in 2000, Onyx 2 in 2003 =)

You absolutely should NOT use your old save files for the new game. A lot of system stuff was changed.

That would be amazing. Thanks! An updated demo of Vanity 2.0 has already been uploaded, jsyk. =P
I know, I am constantly dying at the boss in the mansion, he has a pooooowerful attack. But I will win as soon as I find a cool strategy, I'm getting better. Btw I liked the changed.

And yes, like for Three the Hard Way I've to remade some old reviews that were pretty bad lol.

The boss battles in Onyx v2.0 are much more tolerable. Many of them are susceptible to a particular status abnormality. So you can exploit the hell out of their weaknesses.


Cool. I do not need to say that probably, but I'm waiting for it. I must say that Onyx is my favourite (together with Onyx 2 ofc) for setting, story and characters.


Thanks!! That means a lot.

About Vanity, you have to defend before the boss uses his powerful move. He'll defend himself just before using it. :)

one thing. how i can defeat the skipper and jogger enemies?
These monsters always runs first


In the OG it's impossible.

In the re-release, if you have a character who's faster than them you can one-shot them.

For the Zoraina fight, you could always go outside and grind on the field. But now you can rest inside Raspera for free full feeling and buy new items from a vending machine.
aAAAH I remember grinding a lot on the fields against the ice/snow-themed
enemies. That place is a bit far from every city so it's ok. I also hated Zoraina! Lol

Oh well I'm sure I will have to re-send and updated review for this (and Vanity too) when it is released

Opportunities to level? Cool. I feel like there was just tweaking that needed to happen, and some areas where leveling was like really needed, like the Zorania fight, the Decarabia fight (holy crow), my animation overhaul really got the game singing! If you still need that Chad Daniels faceset redone I can do that, just will take a little bit of time, I possibly could do a better Evan faceset. I wouldn't want to give you anything rushed really!

As Chad and Evan, sure I'd love to see what else you can do. The last version of Chad you sent me looked too "soft." His huge doe eyes made look like such a bitch lol. The first Chad you sent me was perfect, I just wish he had a ponytail. :p

A new Evan would be great, especially if you can give him dreadlocks. That would be sublime. :)

what places are good for grindin in this game?
Just asking
In the OG, I'm not sure tbh. But in the upcoming re-release, there will be plenty of opportunities to level up. At some points in the game, there will be encounters in towns and the palace.

In both versions, the section where the player controls Tari after some events in The Nation, enemies will drop A LOT of EXP, I designed it that way so those characters could catch up to the levels Chad, Winter and Evan were.
by the way... don't delete the original version of this game please
I didn’t intend to. :)


phew
