Checks Out Anodyne

Happy Friday, everyone! As a special treat, I bring to you a new episode of Checks Out, this time having a peek at the moody, atmospheric Zelda-alike Anodyne (previously covered here).

Sean Hogan, one of the game’s developers, updated the official demo yesterday in anticipation of Anodyne’s planned release on February 4th; I’ve been curious to give it a try for some time, so I took the occasion to grab the new demo and record my impressions:

It’s worth mentioning that Anodyne managed to nab an honorable mention in the IGF 2013 student competition, no mean feat.

I believe Anodyne is planned for a $10 price tag on release, but you can nab it for $7 if you pre-order now. As you could no doubt see in the video, I really enjoyed my time with the game–as such, I would recommend putting down that $7 whole-heartedly (or, alternatively, waiting and putting down $10 if you want to give the developers some extra dough).
