HetaOni is a horror/drama game which was first made by Tomoyoshi with RPG Maker XP (This version was just shown as videos) and then programmed with RPG Maker VX by Pianodream and NeoKyno to make it even playable.

The game is about the Axis Powers and the Allies being trapped in a mansion, but legends say that this mansion was haunted.

The game HetaOni is based on the popular Horror RPG game Ao Oni by noprops. Both games are about some friends who are trapped in a mansion and hunted by a monster, but HetaOni is more concentrated on the plot while Ao Oni has almost no plot and is just pure horror.

Game Plot/Game SummaryEdit

Spoiler-Free version:

Italy decided to visit a legendary haunted mansion with his friends Germany, Japan and Prussia. After their arrival, they can hear a strange noise and Japan goes having a look. After he comes back, his friends just disappeared and he can't open the front door. He's all alone, imprisoned in the dark mansion.

Will he be able to escape? Will he find his friends again? And what are the plans of the Allied forces?

Spoiler version:

Italy heard some people talking about a haunted mansion when he was running away from Germany's training and decided to tell America about it and that he wants to visit that mansion because he want to become friends with all the others.

So everybody agrees and they go to the haunted house and also meet the monster that lurks in there. It kills everybody but Italy who can flee from the mansion. But because he doesn't want to live on without his friends, he makes a pact with the monster so he can travel to the point when America suggested to visit the mansion by using the journal he found in the house.

Now he travels back in time every time when one of his friends dies in the mansion. But the time loop in which the plot is shown is different from the other ones. First Italy imprisones all his friends because he want to protect them, but Romano and Spain, who were looking for Italy because Romano had a bad feeling about him, freed everybody and find Italy half dead in a room where he has been fighting against a monster. When he wakes up, he lost all his memory, but slightly gets it back.

After a while he tells everybody his story why he is here and what happened. Even the whole world congregates before the mansion and fight the monsters in front of it until the Axis and Allied Forces can escape.

After some happenings, England ends up losing his sight by using too much magic to kill a monster and save America, Romano and Spain are trapped in the second time loop because they wanted to test some weapons and now can't go back because England lost his magical powers with his sight and Italy's heart stopped when he wanted to look for America's glasses, the light switched off itself and he felt the presence of a monster in the same room.

The game ends in the sanctuary room Germany built for everybody, Italy is lying on a bed and Japan notices anything, shouting "Italy! Italy!"
