Reviews

“The new leader to beat in its sector, we're talking pure ecstasy.”
10/10 – Destructoid

“I'm astonished by it. Astonished by the ease with which it presents its ideas, the joy these ideas bring, and the sheer range of magical stuff it includes, all clipped together in such a satisfying manner. And fittingly, for a game about wells, I am astonished by how deep it all goes.”
10/10 – Eurogamer

“Animal Well redefines the Metroidvania genre”
10/10 – Noisy Pixel
