About

The plot of Onyx revolves around a father taking his own life due to the loss of his daughter.

The discovering of this takes place across several layers of reality, these being an 8bit campfire which has been created by the man, a three dimensional fireplace which is a VR chatroom, and the room you are actually in, which contains your computer as well as VR goggles that are used to access a bridge in outer space.

You switch between these layers to discover one of several possible endings.
