We are a team of Swiss artists - Oniro- and game developers -Forge-. We want to live in world filled with audacious, innovative VR/AR video games, that come bundled with a dozen of early 90's classic games, that defined our generation. Our goal is to create intelligent and charming games using the latest technologies, bringing something new to untamed technologies, something that we have not seen before.
We teamed up during several game jams in 2015 and 2016. During two, the three of them created more than twenty prototypes. During the Global Game Jam 2016, they created a VR game: a monochromatic graphical adventure, called Hell Eluja. During that time, the team also studied the technology (VR) and experimented several ways to interract with it. One project was an asymmetrical game with a jail guard and a prisoner. Seeing the potential of the mechanic, the team decided to merge both projects.After that
Oniroforge was founded in early 2016. The team showcased several projects at conventions and salons. Due to the overhelming positive feedbacks on Hell Eluja and an award earned on an early prototype, the team decided to make it a commercial project.
