It may have taken a little longer to arrive than the BadLand Publishing and Devilish Games teams would have liked, but it’s now time for players on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch and PC to jump into the rather peculiar Tim Burton inspired world of Onirike. If you’re on PS4 though, your wait will continue.
Available to purchase and download right now on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch and PC, Onirike comes to market as an original 3D adventure, one that just so happens to come to market with a slightly quirky visual style.

It runs at a price of £12.49 and should you decide Onirike is worthy of your cash you’ll find yourself dropping into the life of Prieto, a charming little character who wakes up every morning in the same place – again and again and again. You see, as the sun rises in Onirike, Prieto’s memories are erased leaving him to try to get a handle on what is happening.
It transpires that gypsophila is the key to ending this nightmare and by collecting enough of the stuff a Hansel and Gretal styled breadcrumb system begins to come into play, helping navigation of this orb of nightmares. But what happens when there is no gypsophila present? Well, it’ll be up to you to plant seeds, hoping and praying that they grow into flowers. Just make sure you dodge your way past the devourers of souls as you do so.
