Made entirely by Marina Kittaka and me, Anodyne 2 features multi-layered characters, a love of undermining genre conventions, meta-narratives behind the scenes, and much more! You’ll travel through sprawling surreal landscapes that hide wonderful secrets, adopt dream logic to transform yourself into a car, and then explore the boundaries of New Theland to learn that the center’s ideals are not necessarily represented by everyone become. Use Nova’s nano vacuum to solve puzzles and battle bosses while you vacuum up the dust. Every being that you purify leads closer to the truth behind the center.

Marina spent about a year and a half on Anodyne 2: Return to Dust. We learned a lot when we did the first one Anodyneand wanted to see which elements of it would fit in a 3D context! The low-poly design, inspired by consoles from the 90s, leaves a lot of visual details to the imagination and gives players a dreamy feel. Our 2D experience of Anodyne is not lost in the sequel and can be found in every “dungeon” thought.
