In Anodyne, you explore and fight your way through nature, urban and abstract themed areas in the human Young's subconscious, evoked by a 16-bit-era visual style and a moody, dream-like soundtrack. The player moves between rooms 160x160 pixels in size, an intended constraint that we used to create the monster-filled dungeons you will navigate and the set of nature-based (and sometimes stranger) places you will explore. Anodyne is on Steam Greenlight, please vote for it.

New sprites finished, pre-orders soon, and other info in an update for Anodyne, a 2D Link's Awakening-like adventure.

Posted by on

Hi all, Sean here again - this past week:

  1. Jon finished a lot of the spriting and NPCs. The spriting should hopefully be finished soon, as well as the dialogue, and then we'll be done! After some testing.
  2. I also may or may not have done some super secret stuff, as well. I can't say anything about it, though...
  3. I spent a bit working on a long retrospective blog post on my past 16 months of game development. It has some on info on how I went from small Ludum Dare games to this, so maybe it could be interesting.
  4. I made sheet music for two songs, Fields and Windmill - they are one - the solo piano music is here, and you can listen to the song here.
  5. I also figured out pre-orders, so expect those to arrive soon. It will be $7 for the game, $3 for the soundtrack, probably. On release, $8 and $4, then after no sales, $10 and $5.
  6. I don't know if I mentioned this, but Anodyne has a tumblr, so if you use tumblr, feel free to follow.
  7. Also, our Greenlight page is really lacking love, so maybe give it an upvote or share it with some friends? Holiday cheer for all!

Have some screenshots. That's about it!

Voting on Greenlight right this minute. Glad to hear pre-orders are coming. I think this will be a bit of a sleeper hit.
