New release: Anodyne
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.
This description doesn’t quite impart just how delightfully off-kilter the game’s mood is; it’s Zelda: A Link to the Past with an art house sensibility. (And I mean that in the best way possible.)
Here is Anodyne’s trailer, which gets the point across somewhat better:
Anodyne has a a free demo available, which I recommend trying if you haven’t done so yet. In addition, you can also listen to / nab the soundtrack here, and upvote Anodyne on Greenlight here if the mood strikes you.
Anodyne is available direct from the developers or on Desura for $8 for Windows, Mac and Linux; at some point, though, that price will be rising to $10. (A mobile release is planned for the not-too-distant future as well, but that’s not here just yet.)
