【About Onion Games】
Stray Children is the latest game from Tokyo-based independent studio Onion Games. Best known for their 2021 re-release of 1997’s moon: Remix RPG Adventure, Stray Children is being created by a number of former team members behind that similarly bittersweet cult classic.
Following their contributions to other beloved cult favorites like Chulip, Little King’s Story, Rule of Rose, and Super Mario RPG, the industry veterans at Onion Games have also released eccentric and entirely idiosyncratic titles like the puzzling rogue-lite Dandy Dungeon, the operatic side-scrolling shooter Black Bird, the one-button arcade kiss-em-up Mon Amour, and the mobile game madness of Million Onion Hotel.
We’re still hard at work on the game and localisation, so to stay up to date on all developments, please guide your audience to subscribe to our newsletter — The Secret Onion Cellar — for the latest news.
