Announcing the Anodyne 2 Week 1 Edition, pricing, and more!



Hey everyone! Sean Han Tani, Director of Analgesic Productions here. Thanks for your support of our games Anodyne, Even the Ocean or All Our Asias!

First off, I'm pleased to announce Anodyne 2 will be releasing later this summer for $19.99. The Anodyne 2 OST will also release, featuring over 80 minutes of music, for only $4.99!

For release week, the game will be 10% off ($17.99)!

If you haven't yet, wishlist Anodyne 2 over here:

Today I want to talk about THREE exciting things relating to the release of Anodyne 2: Return to Dust, and ways to save money when buying the game!

  • Anodyne 2: Week 1 Edition
  • Anodyne Franchise Bundle
  • Anodyne Loyalty Coupon


Anodyne 2: Week 1 Edition

For ONLY the first week of release, you'll be able to purchase a special complete-the-set bundle featuring both Anodyne 2 and its 80+ minute OST. We'll be pricing this at around $17.99***, meaning the OST is nearly free!

We recommend this bundle for owners of Anodyne 1 who enjoyed my music in the previous game and are planning to purchase the music.**

Anodyne Franchise Bundle

We'll be launching a complete-the-set bundle consisting of Anodyne 1 and Anodyne 2 as well. This is perfect for anyone looking to get into the series!

And for launch week*, we'll also be including the Anodyne 2 OST in here as well! Pricing will be $17.99 + cost of Anodyne 1 at the time.

The Anodyne Loyalty Coupon

Have you played Anodyne 1 yet? If not, picking it up now is a great idea, as upon release all owners of Anodyne 1 will receive a 10% off coupon for Anodyne 2! In fact, purchases of Anodyne 1 up to two weeks after Anodyne 2's release will also be given a coupon - even if you buy it in the franchise bundle.

Coupons are also applicable towards the aforementioned bundles!

Therefore, you can get up to 20% off on Anodyne 2 by being a player of Anodyne 1! You can even send this coupon to a friend.


---

* After launch week, the Anodyne Franchise bundle will consist of only Anodyne 1 and Anodyne 2. Purchasers of the bundle in the first week of Anodyne 2's release will NOT lose the Anodyne 2 OST. Purchasers of the bundle AFTER the first week will NOT receive the OST. The pricing of the bundle will be updated accordingly from $17.99 + Ano1 price w/ discount, to Ano2 + Ano1 price w/ 10% discount.

** Please note that the cheapest way to get the OST and Anodyne 2 is to buy the Week 1 Edition. Due to the bundle system, purchasing the game at $17.99 and then the complete the set bundle will be more expensive

*** Due to the bundle pricing system, the price of the Week 1 Edition bundle will be a few cents over or under $17.99.

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
