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.
You can buy Anodyne from our website. Anodyne is developed by Sean Hogan (@seagaia2), who codes and writes the music, and Jon Kittaka (@jonathankittaka), who does the art. We're also on Facebook ( and Twitter (@anodynegame).

Hi all, long time no post...anyways, I've been working on both our new game, Even the Ocean, and the mobile port, and the iOS version is ready to be released, and will be on sale, 40% off at $2.99, on next Thursday 6/27, as "Anodyne Mobile", for universal iOS.

Anyways, it is a straight port - no new features (wouldn't make much sense to add content, in my opinion) . BUT IT'S PORTABLE! And achievements or stuff, and it's not on desktop, so hence the discount! Well, that's part of the reason...

So yeah. Pick it up if you get the chance, tell your friends!

Definitely enjoying the game. One quick question: I ran into an glitchy area near the boss who talks about fire. Is that an intentional hidden area, or did I just make the game bug out? I was able to exploit it to get into a room that I couldn't otherwise access. I couldn't get back out though.

Haha, I had a feeling. It seemed like the kind of thing you guys would include. Great work on the game. The tone reminds me a lot of Yume Nikki, but Anodyne is much more engaging to me.

I know the spot you're talking about, and it seems there are some really well hidden secret blocks according to the dev on this gamefaqs post:

Any chance of settings being saved between runs? It doesn't seem to do that :/
It's a great game so far though, so keep it up :)
