Oneshot is an RPG Maker 2003 Puzzle/Adventure game where you, as the player, must guide a lost child through a strange world, utilizing items, characters, and the environment to progress.

Features:
  • Original soundtrack
  • Custom graphics
  • Unusual gameplay features

This game was made in a month with a few character designs and music tracks made beforehand. Inspirations include Yume Nikki, Link's Awakening, Hyper Light Drifter, and The Little Prince.

Created by Mathew Velasquez and NightMargin (Casey Gu).

A Side B might be a good idea. If you're only using Bandcamp, I think simply adding the new tracks will email all purchasers of the change so they can re-download. I'm not positive, but it's worth checking out that option too. You could just add all the new tracks and increase the price by a buck or something.

Whoa, I didn't know Bandcamp did that! I should def look into it, yeah...thanks for letting me know!

This sweetest game I have ever played. It deserves stars across the board!

<3
Beautiful. I chose to save the world, but somehow I missed the area for planting the seed! Unfortunate.

And what's this about a new version? :o

The game is planned to be remade in XP. A stronger engine that supports more features than 2k3.
Wonderful, wonderful. Looking forward to it! Will it be commercial, or still freeware?

The extended game will be commercial and feature a lot more content. The current version remains freeware.
Even more excellent! You definitely deserve money for this. Hopefully I can scrape together the funds to buy the full version.
I'm only about 15 minutes into the game, and I'm already loving it. The story, the main character, the atmosphere, the soundtrack. Basically everything. The only problem I'm having is that I'm stuck at the part
where you have to find the code in your Documents on your computer. There is nothing in my documents, and I keep all of my files in dropbox so I've looked there, but I could not find it.

Any help? Thanks.

maybe try filtering the files by date? if you still can't find it, let me know
Truly a beautiful game, I loved playing every second of it
It was a feel trip, tho

Anyway. Amazing, and the OST is... Just magical.
Really good job!
Nice game, as a Yume Nikki fan, you really get inspired by that game.
I got stuck, but i will manage to end this game.
Good work!
Hi! Mediafire doesn't work for me. Would you please make another download in Dropbox, perhaps? Please? thank you so much!
My game wont launch... I didnt die or anything. In my last session I went to a bed and slept... All it says is "Could not start RPG_RT.exe" Help? Have I lost the game by not finishing it fast enough or am I only alowed 2 playsessions?
My bug fixed itself...

Now that I've finished the game I must say. Wow. That's a really F****** good game!
Mad probs to you guys!

WARNING! Mad spoilers!
DO NOT READ THIS IF YOU HAVEN'T PLAYED THE GAME YET!...

I love how you made the player really care about the game by giving permanent consequenses. I did though wanted to try out the other ending. I chose the "Save the world" one. I loved the dreams and the bond you had with Niko at the end of the game. I litterally sat there with the two choises for 30 minutes. The only complaint I have abbout the game is that I want more of it, but that's more a compliment than a complaint ;)


I'm definitely going to recomend this game to all of my friends and share it around!
will definitely try this. Looks very unique, with its own style.
Took me awhile BUT I MANAGED TO GET THE GAME RUNNING!!!
At first chrome blocked the download, then is my antivirus blocking(or just delete it) the rpg_rt.
but then I managed to run it!
then there's a big problem...
When it says 'oneshot' I have no idea what does it means (my English sucks)... and then after awhile I only realise you can only play this game once.
I was planning to replay this game with a friend... so far I am at the second part (took me an hour and looking for cheats to get thru, damn)

But I guess I found a way to able myself to replay this game?
Just look around in my pc to find a certain thing and then delete it... right? Or do I need to delete everything this game created (including the 'document' thing)?
Edit: I was wrong can anyone give me a hint or message me in private how am I gonna replay this please
I just made a account here so I could ask you to please PLEASE make more games like this!
Oneshot was honestly the rpg maker game I enjoyed playing the most.
The plot, the 4th wall breaking, the OST, Niko, everything was great!
And it was all finished in a month? You guys seriously need to make more. It would be a waste of talent not to.

btw Niko is the cutest <3
I really enjoyed the game! seriously..I love it. The world, the characters, the story, and the interactions between me the player and the main hero Niko. I also had fun with the mechanics of the game where you have to look around or check your computer for answers, that's cool and refreshing. Now I understand why many people love this game. I enjoyed the journey of Niko to the world of Oneshot. Thanks for the great experience. Great Job Devs. CM.

Aww...this game is so amazing! The graphics are so beatiful and adorable! And the soundtracks did greatjob on creating atomsphere with graphics. The storyline is fascinating... I don't really know how to expound my feeling in English.(Because I'm so bad at it QωQ) I hope I can have a way to say how I really love this game, and thanks you for create this game.

But I did play it. I also played Yume Nikki and thought it was a boatload of ass.

what the fuck is yume nikki


It's what this game and all other games like it were inspired by. It was a game composed entirely of massive, empty maps that contain powers like turning your head into a lamppost that, upon getting all of them, you give them away, wake up, and swan dive off your balcony. The end.

Lesson learned: real life sucks, dreams are better.

The whole thing can be summed up almost word-for-word from this game's description.

Yume Nikki is an RPG Maker 2003 Puzzle/Adventure game where you, as the player, must guide a lost child through a strange world, utilizing items, characters, and the environment to progress.




But there's actually less to care about.

I didn't even have to go fishing for that screenshot; that's from fucking Wikipedia.

EDIT: Nightmargin, your avatar is literally just Cave Story, just with (hurr hurr) less effort.

what the fuck is


Sorry, did I just shit on your life?

Also, Jesus, mathew, you could at least give credit to Nightmargin for doing your art and music for you by making him an official co-developer of your game. Give him some of that makerscore love; he could use it.
I'm sorry,who the hell killed your childhood? Because the it's the idea to the game that makes it unique. So go back to 4chan you friggin flaming troll
