1.521 Patch Notes

Hello all,

This patch *might* fix smearing/ghosting/bleeding issues with the Big Picture Mode steam overlay. If someone could verify this that'd help a lot, thanks!

Also, I am looking into fixing controller issues eventually (like D-Pad on PS4) but no guarantee I'll be able to. Thank you for your patience and support.

Regarding the upcoming Nitro Rad Video Sale

Hello all, this is Analgesic Productions's Chief Happiness Officer, Sean Han Tani.

Starting tomorrow, Anodyne will be on sale for 3 days, at 50% off.

This sale is running due to the interest in the game generated by Nitro Rad's video!

I understand that some of you may have already purchased the game in the past two days at the full price. Thank you for the support!

Unfortunately, I did not initially realize I was able to run a sale until today, and the earliest I can start it is tomorrow morning.

If you recently bought Anodyne and would like to purchase it at the sale price, you should be able to request a refund and then repurchase it at the sale price tomorrow.

If you are unable to do so due to playtime, I sincerely apologize! Know that your purchase is much appreciated and will be put towards development of Anodyne 2.

Again, thank you for your support and I hope you enjoy the game. Anodyne is due out on Switch on 2/28, as well.

Anyways, please look forward to the sequel, Anodyne 2: Return to Dust, due out later this year!

Reviews

"Anodyne’s puzzles are old-school in the best way, requiring NES-era logic and reasoning skills [...] The stirring, thoughtful narrative saves the experience. At its core, Anodyne is about alienation from the real world, particularly for gamers."
Polygon

"Anodyne can be as funny and charming as Link’s Awakening on occasion, but the overall tone is one of unease, with a subtle malevolence – the ‘something seems a bit off here’ factor – reminiscent of the indie horror Lone Survivor. Meaning is elusive, but themes and motifs soon begin to take form, in a game that feels increasingly personal the more you burrow into it."
PC Gamer - 84/100
