Two weekends, two shows!

It's been a manic fortnight!
Annwn was exhibited in the Leftfield Collection at EGX​ Rezzed and then at Wales Comic Con a week later.



What went wrong?
...last minute changes and poor testing left me with an EGX build I had to restart after each play...
...tutorial unclear...
...balanced far too difficult for most players...
...not enough time to play other games...
...failed to contact press ahead of time...
...meetings during show meant I had to leave the game unattended for long periods...
...broke the build AGAIN for ComicCon...

What went right?
...lots and lots of useful feedback...
...detailed discussions of game mechanics and narrative theme...
...met many other devs...
...meetings at EGX were good...
...games I did get to play were inspiring...
...fixed the ComicCon build on the show floor...
...loads of help from the graduate teams at Glyndwr University...
...and the sun shone!

What's next?

Wishlist the game, join the Discord, keep in touch!

March 25

New version of Annwn demo!

We just published a new build!
Includes bug fixes, tutorial improvements and an entirely new island.



In detail:
  • Teleporting between totems no longer loops indefinitely, as this confused some players.
  • Stacking rocks under a totem now gets more expensive the higher you stack, to prevent success making the campaign too easy.
  • Changed the tutorial island seed to generate a new island, providing the player with more tactical options early on.
  • Tutorial hints slowed down and fixed first hint being skipped.
  • Tutorial and pause screen now include a mouse controls diagram.
  • Minor UI polish.

About This Game

Explore the surreal archipelago of the celtic otherworld Annwn (ann-oon), evading the sweeping gaze of the Watchmen. Hurl your soul from one totem to another in search of answers. Manipulate the environment to progress, but beware of disrupting the balance of light and darkness...

Annwn is an abstract stealth strategy game about making decisions under pressure, played across a series of bleak and lonely procedural islands.

You are a disembodied soul, able to dissolve and recreate elements of this mist-shrouded archipelago. Absorb the energy of trees and rocks, and use it to create totems which you can possess...anywhere that you can see the floor. Pump more energy into a totem to raise it higher before transferring your soul to it. Ascend the hills but watch out for the slowly revolving Watcher, who will try to redistribute your precious energy across the landscape. Find clues to the fate of your lost love hidden around the landscape before ascending to absorb the Watcher itself and move on.

  • Infinite variety of procedural islands.
  • Improve your abilities by absorbing Watchers.
  • Campaign arcs deliver stories of love, loss, life and death.
  • Other, undocumented mysteries await in the Otherworld...
