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.
Piracy, The Pirate Bay, sales, reviews, news, oh my - see what's been happening in the post-release of Anodyne in the past two weeks.

Hey, Sean here.
So, we released Anodyne about 2 weeks ago, on the 4th. Things have been going pretty well - we spent the first 10 days or so of post-release reading some nice reviews, and hearing thoughtful comments. Been a bit of bug fixing (controller support is being attempted to be implemented...), uploading new builds, etc!
We're 50th on greenlight! And the next day of greenlighting is the 26th...exciting :)
There was also the interesting event of our game being pirated - and then deleted from The Pirate Bay - and the re-uploaded by myself. And then the very interesting event of having Anodyne featured on the front page of The Pirate Bay, and then having a $1/$1.50-min PWYW sale for 72 hours, which gained a LOT of new fans - both through the sales and purchases (which I wrote about) . I also wrote a bit about my thoughts on the whole piracy situation.
Additionally, the soundtrack has been released and people have generally liked it so far. If you'd like, you can pick it up for $5 at my bandcamp. .
Also, the game is now purchasable through our humble store for $9, or the game + OST for $12! (Or you can even buy it right here on Desura!)
And, that's about it. If anything big pops up I'll be back to talk about it!
