Whitethorn Games and Walking Oni Games will be releasing their next rushing title Onsen Master on September 1st for PC and consoles. Technically the rushing is only a piece of the game, but its a big one as you'll be pulling off special combinations for customers who are popping in looking for help. You'll need to rush through and assemble ingredients for special orders at a hot spring to match the various customer ailments. You'll do so while avoiding obstacles and other issues that may cause you to screw up orders as they come in, as you attempt to manage this system all across the fantasy island of Izajima. You can read up more about it and check out the latest trailer before the game is released next week.
A dark cloud hangs over the island of Izajima, its effects weighing heavily on the inhabitants. Mischievous spirits called yokai are running amok within the island's hot springs. And the great Onsen Master, keeper of the hot springs and healer of ailments, has mysteriously vanished. Players will take on the role of his apprentice, Mu, in order to restore balance and uncover what happened to the Onsen Master!
