More details below!

Limited Physical Edition


For $45, you can get a retro-style "Tallbox" case, containing a beautiful, 24-page, illustrated 'game manual' created by Marina Kittaka. You'll also receive a clear, orange "game disk" etched with a Steam key you can use for yourself or a friend! These items are beautiful and when you view them you'll be able to recollect fond memories of exploring Anodyne 2's New Theland.

Tape Soundtrack



For $10, we're selling the game's OST in physical tape form. This comes in a beautifully designed case showing Nova shrinking down. The tape itself is a nice, transparent orange color, matching Anodyne 2's title screen and beginning level. It also comes with a DRM-free download of the game's music! You can put this into a tape player and imagine it's the soundtrack to a mysterious world...

T-shirt and pin
For $20, you can own a nice, blue T-shirt with an original illustration by Marina Kittaka of Nova in her three forms - Ridescale, Walkscale, and Nanoscale!

For $10, you can own a 1" soft enamel pin of Nova in her 2D form. Perfect for bags or backpacks, and chance, fated encounters with mutual Anodyne 2 fans.

Press Quotes

"Even The Ocean is the sort of game I'm pretty primed to like: It's a well-designed, challenging 2D platformer with a unique energy-balancing mechanic. It features an inclusive, politically aware story, with narrative beats about community, identity and activism. It has pretty pixel art and moody music. And it was made by Analgesic studios, the two-person team behind one of my favorite titles of 2013, Anodyne, a beautiful, pointed take on 2D Zelda-style games.

That was always going to speak to me. But what I found in Even the Ocean surprised me even further: It's not just a good game, but a milestone for a sensitive, thoughtful studio working in an uncertain and often downright scary world."
-Danielle Riendeau for Waypoint

"Perhaps even more intriguing, though, is how this energy system affects the logic and culture of Even the Ocean‘s world. It makes sense that the tallest city, Whitforge City, and its celestial spire runs on Light energy. Given that it relies on the power plants that Aliph restores to keep running, the city and its Light energy also come to represent industrialism and science."
-Chris Priestman for Killscreen

"Even the Ocean is a shining example of how we should be treating diversity and accessibility in games paired with interesting plaforming challenges."
-Affinity Archives Steam Curator
