Ao Oni



Ao Oni is a Japanese survival horror game with RPG and puzzle elements. Although each version differs heavily from the others, the objective is always the same. Locked in a mansion, you explore and solve puzzles while running from an enigmatic demon. This wiki serves as a source of collective information about the series and walkthroughs.




Ao Oni



The game has become a phenomenon, spawning hundreds of fan-games, spin offs, and even an official novel . Each game adds its own characters and monsters to the ever-expanding Oni universe. This wiki's purpose however, is to inform about official content that's published or given a license by noprops.


The complete list of all official versions can be found here. To play Ao Oni, take a look at the Installation Guide. The fun of playing these games comes from encountering different variations of the Oni monster and solving puzzles.


Ao Oni is a horror game made from RPGMaker XP. The Main character, Hiroshi, and his three other friends,Takuro,Takeshi and Mika, decided to visit an abandoned mansion that is rumoured to be haunted, and there is a monster in there.


It is puzzle themed horror game and requires skilled use of 'running away' when Ao Oni comes for you. Every version has a new ending and it has garnered the reputation of having many tropes & many fan versions.


The RPG Maker Resurgence bundle has just been announced, putting a tremendous amount of game-making content into the hands of creators for an all-time low price. Creating games on the RPG Maker engines is not all that dissimilar from the skills mod creators utilise in creating their mods, and so here's five games from across the RPG Maker lineup!


Taut is a horror game with elements of Silent Hill and the movies of David Lynch. It's a drama focusing on metaphorical depictions of the human psyche and psychological issues, often verging into the abstract. Taking place in the protagonist's home town, which has no identified name, the player must find out why the town is now empty, and that journey begins where comfortable memories surround them - their childhood school.

Pokemon is a collecting and battling game that many would place into RPG territory due to the reliance on training new skills, levelling up, and the variety of strategies players can use to progress through the game. Though player choice is minimal in the actual narrative, this formula means it fits well into RPG Maker's framework and this fan game gives players the chance to explore anew some of the classic regions from the old but gold Pokemon titles, with, as you can see above, a DS inspired flavour.


Join Goku as he ventures out into the wide world, making new friends and chasing the 7 mysterious Dragon Balls. As with the next and prior entry on this list, RPG Maker's engines are just as prone to franchise "total conversions" as with mods - we've seen plenty of total conversions placing games within both the Pokemon and Dragon Ball universes, and this fan game is another indication of the similarities between indie devs and modders.


This game follows the story of what happens after the John Carpenter 1982 movie adaptation of the John W. Campbell JR Novel "Who Goes There?". The original game borrows heavily on the story from the 2002 video game and the current sequel expands further on the plot after Captain Blake defeats the Thing entity. After the death of Whitley and the destruction of Gen Inc property; Captain J.F.Blake boards a rescue plane and leaves Antarctica. Complications arise and the aircraft malfunctions and crashes. With no report from Blake the Alaska base sends in a new rescue team of which you the player take control.


RPG Maker is the series of engines, dating all the way back to 1992 (though popularised in the west with RPG Maker 2003) which allowed indie developers to quickly and efficiently create RPG games from a common foundation. Remarkably modular with effective scripting tools, it's a very early example of an independent developer-oriented engine and some of the earliest well-known indie games come from these engines. Now, you can get the whole lot of RPG Maker software from Humble Bundle as part of their RPG Maker Resurgence deal.


RPG Maker has been a popular entry point for indie storytellers for decades, and games on these engineshave seen remarkable success particularly in "Lets Play" circles on YouTube in the late 2000s/early 2010s


The bundle is available now through to July 21st, with 28.62 GBP/$35 USD being the bar for getting all the content within (which has a total value of 739.99 GBP/$858 USD). If you purchase the bundle and make something with it, host it on-site and let us know - we always love to see new doors opened to creators!

Ao Oni (青鬼, lit. 'Blue Demon') is a freeware horror game developed by "noprops".[2] It was first released in Japan in November 2008. The game was later adapted into a series of light novels and manga by Kenji Kuroda.


The story follows a boy named Hiroshi, who along with his school friends, investigates a deserted mansion that is rumored to be haunted. Upon entering the mansion, the group discovers that it is home to a mysterious creature referred to as the Ao Oni (青鬼 in Japanese, literally "Blue Demon") a tall humanoid with a deformed face that proceeds to chase the player throughout the mansion. The player must solve a series of puzzles while evading the creature to escape the mansion.


Very little information is explained in the game about the Oni and his reasons for inhabiting the mansion, but it is assumed that he may have been one of the mansion's old residents. The Oni is a muscular, tall humanoid with a large head and blue skin who is roughly twice the size of an average human. When he appears in the game, a characteristic "shrieking" string chord plays until the player outruns him.


Normally, his mouth is kept closed in an amused smirk, but in a secret ending he is shown to have a set of sharp, knife-like teeth. If the Oni captures and kills one of Hiroshi's friends, they too turn into an Oni, distinguishable by their hairstyles, which they kept when transformed by the Oni.


In addition to the standard Oni, the player can enter an "Oni Room", containing numerous deformed, mutated, and completely original Onis, including a rectangular oni called "Blockman", who resembles the popular Japanese character Domo-kun, and a gigantic, muscle-bound Oni nicknamed "Squatto", who humorously appears to be hefting invisible weights when encountered for the first time. Both of these Onis can chase the player more than once if the player enters their names when creating a new game.


The creature (the Ao Oni) will begin to chase the player at both random[4] and scripted moments, similar to the Nemesis in Resident Evil 3. This forces the player to evade the Oni by either outrunning him or hiding from him, since Hiroshi is unable to fight back against him.[5]


In 2013 - 2017, a series of novels were released which were based on the game.[2] Slight differences to the storyline, mostly based on characterization are present, but the books are otherwise faithful to the game's plot. The title was licensed for digital distribution in the English language by J-Novel Club.[6] The series is made up of five novels, which J-Novel Club released between 2018 and 2019: Ao Oni, Ao Oni: Vengeance, Ao Oni: Mutation, Ao Oni: Grudge, and Ao Oni: Forever.


While mocking the others, Naoki is surprised to discover that a part of him doesn't actually want vengeance, particularly after receiving a heartfelt apology from Takeshi, as the two had previously been friends. Hiroshi also notes that while Naoki claims that he inspired Shun to create the games in order to spark off his revenge, it was actually so he could provide Shun with an outlet for his frustrations. Naoki is also horrified to discover that his classmates had been secretly trying to compile evidence against Takuro, as they were not as uncaring as he believed them to be. They had only stopped after he died in the accident, which they believe to have been engineered by Takuro to stop the investigation. Realizing that Naoki is wavering, the demon devours his consciousness and assumes control. With his remaining strength, Naoki is able to warn the others that the demon has rigged the game so that a successful completion will release demonic insects that will possess the students gathering outside the building.


In 2018 PHP Laboratory began publishing a series of junior novels based on the Ao Oni series. The series follows the game characters, who are of elementary school age instead of teenagers, and is told from the perspective of a stray dog that was taken in by Takuro's uncle.[8]


An anime television short series adaptation premiered on 3 October 2016.[15] The series is produced by Studio Deen, and directed by Toshirō Hamamura and Chisei Maeda, with Kanekoke handling series composition, Kichi designing the characters and Shiyu Yanagida composing the music.[16] An anime film, also produced by Studio Deen, released in 2017.[17]


The game gained a cult following online in Japan, gaining notoriety through websites such as Niconico and YouTube where Ao Oni-related videos exceeded 50 million views by 2013. The popularity of the game revolves around the effectiveness of its horror aspects despite being a simple game, with the background music cited as a key contributor to the chilling atmosphere used to incite fear.[2] 041b061a72
