Inspired Hayao Miyazaki’s Spirited Away and great game titles like Overcooked and Diner Dash, Onsen Master matches a colorful fantasy world with frantic customer and hot spring management.
As Mu, players will travel to various hot springs across Izajima to manage onsens populated by unique customers and Japanese spirits, called yokai. As patrons queue within the onsen, your goal is to create ingredients that will solve a variety of ailments within the time limit.
Onsen Master consists of three main tasks: Greet the customer, Mix your ingredients and Heal their ailments!
Customers will queue at the entrance of each onsen and wait for you to guide them to a bath. Be sure to assist them quickly, as each customer has a timer and depending on your speed of service you can receive a nice chunk of change to influence your final score, but if the timer runs out they will leave the onsen!
Once you’ve sorted your customer, it’s time to select an ingredient that matches their needs and head to the mixing station! There you will turn your ingredient into its final solution and dump it into the customer’s bath to heal them.
But that’s not all you’ll be managing; unruly customers and Japanese spirits called “yokai” have come to the onsen as well and with them they bring unique ailments and behaviors to throw you off of your routine. Keep a keen eye for these characters and help them efficiently, or else they may cause quite the ruckus!
Onsen Master is a story about healing, set in fantasy feudal Japan. As Mu, you've been tasked with filling the shoes of your missing sensei, the great "Onsen Master". Since their disappearance, onsens across the island of Izajima as well as the harmony between its peoples has fallen into shambles. It is now up to you to restore the balance and uncover what happened to the previous master.
