Metronomik, the folks behind the acclaimed 2020 action music game No Straight Roads, has announced its new upcoming title named after Malaysia’s famous klepon snack: Ondeh Ondeh.
Ondeh Ondeh is billed as a fantastical audio-centric game. Based on the trailer, it’s looking like a 3D action-adventure title with most likely some platforming, puzzles, and obstacles to solve and defeat.
Here’s the full overview from Metronomik co-founders Wan Hazmer and Daim Dziuauddin:
“Ondeh Ondeh will be an audio-centric game but in a totally different manner from No Straight Roads. It will also be set in a weirder and fantastical context.
Named after a Malaysian dessert of the same name, Ondeh Ondeh will provide players with a charming story that intertwines beautifully with captivating amounts of exploration, art, and Malaysian culture.
Thanks to the warm reception worldwide, we now have the confidence to go all-out with our Malaysian culture for Ondeh Ondeh.
No Straight Roads was loved by many for its slight hints of Malaysian identity to reflect the development team and the English voice actors. Thanks to the warm reception worldwide, we now have the confidence to go all-out with our Malaysian culture for Ondeh Ondeh.”
Here’s the debut teaser for the game, along with a ton of design talk and concept from Metronomik, so do check it out! The game is currently in production, so there’s no release date/window/platform as of yet.
Update [8/11/2021]: Metronomik also released the game’s OST concept piece straight out of the debut teaser. The music is done by Falk Au Yeong, with its Bansuri performance by Kristin Naigus.
