Anodyne is an adventure game that focuses on immersing the player through a combination of 16-bit era visual and audio aesthetics, Zelda-esque action/adventure gameplay mechanics, and exploration of the human Young's dream world.

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 created by Sean Hogan and Jonathan Kittaka. You can follow us on Twitter at a2 and hanKittaka , or follow the game's updates at negame .

Default controls:

Arrows: Move
C: Interact, attack, select
X: Cancel
Enter: Pause

i usually do running reviews where i list all the issues in a game one by one and then the author has a (usually complete) list of all the problems/issues/design flaws. then when the author takes my advice verbatim, their game becomes immensely successful.

but it seems like you did nearly everything right here. just one minor hiccup i noticed so far.

when you step on a checkpoint and hit 'c' it says "saving..." but never gives any feedback to let you know that your progress is saved. this is somewhat awkward and clunky. one is left to assume. but some might assume that it doesn't say "saved" because it didn't properly save due to some browser/flash setting.

have you made a game before?

Love it. The fact that you would choose a broom as the protagonists weapon and use dust to block lasers shows some creativity and leaves me intrigued. Oh how gaming janitors must be rejoicing. How evil of you to just stop it without any closure and tease us >:D Not complaining though, it worked. I'll happily pick this up for such a modest price just to see what happens next. Thanks for scratching my nostalgic itch ^_^

I voted for you on steam.
This is probably the best Zelda type game I've played i hope it gets the green light.

"Anodyne" isn't just a "Legend of Zelda" knock off.
The game plays in a RPG world with its hero named "Young".
As humorous as the game is made, our hero Young defends himself with a broom.
The plot is thrilling, always reaching another climax of excitement when another level is entered.
It also recollects the image of "Alundra".
Too bad I'd rather call the game a rip off because it only is a demo and yet has such an individual personality.
5/5 stars.

How sorrowful. But I'm scraping my last cents together to get this game!
