Anodyn is a topdown 2D adventure game where you will be able to explore dungeons and different environments in a dream world of a human named Young. The game was developed by Sean “Seagaia” Hogan and Jon Kittaka, and what they’ve created is a Zelda style game. Between exploring dungeons, finding keys to open gates, and fighting monsters with dusty brooms, you could definitely tell where the two developers got their inspiration from. In terms of aesthetics, they’ve also taken inspiration from Yume Nikki. They’ve released a demo of the game on their website. It’ll offer you around 15 to 30 minutes of extremely fun gameplay and leave you wanting more. Be sure to check out the trailer of this awesomeness below:
So far Anodyne has support for three platforms which are Windows, Mac and Linux. That said, whatever operating system you’re on you’ll be able to play the demo. On Windows you should be able to play the game fine, but to play on either Mac or Linux you’re going to need to download Adobe Air as Sean Hogan points out on his website.
Thankfully we won’t have to wait to long for the entire game, as Sean Hogan and Jon Kittaka are aiming for a late Fall release after originally starting the game back in March of 2012. Anodyne isn’t too far out, and as a result of that it has also been submitted to Steam Greenlight in hopes of getting put on the digital platform. If you’re interested in giving the demo a try, just head on over to the Anodyne website and grab the free download.
