Anodyne 2: Return to Dust is out this week on Steam and worth checking out, especially for anyone who loves great music and moody, PS2-era JRPG vibes. Kotaku’s Heather Alexandra loved the game when it was in Early Access and I’ve been having a similarly splendid time with the full release.
Anodyne 2 is looking very cool and very weird. In a video released this week, developer Sean Han Tani revealed that the game’s 2D and 3D worlds are connected by a mechanic that asks the player to shrink down and “clean” the inside of enemy bodies. Anodyne 2 will release in 2019.
Behold Anodyne 2: Return to Dust, the follow-up to 2013's Anodyne, a delightful Zelda-like. Ditching the gorgeous pixel art of the original, the sequel looks a lot grimier. Coming to PC in 2019, the game will include both 3D areas reminiscent of a PS2 game and 2D segments that look more like the first game.
