The following text is intended for use on Oni's Discord server. A moderator on the server will paste this into the Dyno bot's Custom Commands page, and then anyone can use the "./onifact" command to randomly select an Oni-related fact to print out. Anyone can suggest facts for the list below (each fact needs to end with a ';' except the last one). The size limit for a custom command is supposedly 2,000 characters, although the current text is over 2K bytes and seems to be working in Dyno.

Oni's expected release date slipped by about 15 months.;
Planned features for Oni included multiplayer, radiosity lighting, real-time IK physics, water physics, real-time shadows, movable objects and destructible environments.

Some of these features were actually implemented and then cut due to poor performance or lack of time to polish them.;
A sequel to Oni was in development for two years before being canceled.}
