About the game
Developed by Analgesic Productions, Anodyne takes place in the haunting, vibrant subconscious mind of the game’s protagonist, Young. You are tasked with navigating the various natural, urban and abstract environments within Young’s innermost self to help sweep away demons, defeat enemies and solve Young’s personal puzzles with their only weapon, a trusty broom! Clear out the dungeons, meander through Young’s own mind, and collect cards to advance further into the game as Young grows in confidence and ability, ready to rescue The Legendary Briar from the Evil Darkness.
Anodyne harks back to classic 16-bit action-adventure games while creating its own unique feel. It incorporates a large overworld with many quirky, challenging dungeons filled with a variety of unusual enemies. This is overlaid with an unsettling musical score which adds to the feel of an uneasy, dreamlike experience.
This debut game from the 2-person studio Analgesic Productions was released on PC and Mac to critical acclaim. Developed while the two were still students, Anodyne won an Honorable Mention at the IGF Student Showcase in San Francisco.
