This is a videogame where the main character knows who you are

This game knows a scary amount of info about you without even asking. In fact, the entire in-game world already knows your name when you don’t even know it exists. This game completely disregards the fourth wall. You are a god to the people of Oneshot’s world, and the main character is Niko, the messiah.

You guide this little catlike kid through the in game world and he follows your orders- but unlike other games, you are not the main character, and he is not you. The game is acutely aware of this too- in game characters speak with you through Niko, their messiah.

Niko frequently addresses you directly as well. He asks you questions and interacts with you in a way unique to Oneshot¬†that you need to experience to really understand. Together you and Niko go on a quest to restore the world’s lost sun. The game tells a wonderful tale and the dark pixel art style is captivating.
