Wishlist Anodyne 2: Return to Dust, today!

Hi, players of Anodyne and Even the Ocean - it's Sean Han Tani here from Analgesic. I wanted to let you know that the sequel to Anodyne, Anodyne 2: Return to Dust, can be wishlisted today!

Wishlist the game here:

In a world first, Anodyne 2 mixes both 3D exploration with 2D dungeons.

You explore and drive around a surreal 3D dream world as Nova, shrinking into people's minds in order to clean dangerous Nano Dust in 2D. It's a bit of a mix of some of the concepts of Shadow of the Colossus, Psychonauts, as well as 2D and 3D Zelda games! Like Anodyne 1, it features bizarre creatures and strange places. The 3D and 2D environments range from natural landscapes, to unsettling homes and abstract areas.

To stay up to date, you can follow me on Twitter (where I post many GIFs) -

OR, you can join Analgesic's newsletter over at , or join our Discord server!

Here's a few screenshots:

Nova looks upon a glowing, orange island.

And here are some of the 2D areas:

Now shrunk down to Nanoscale form, Nova explores floating ruins to find Nano Dust.

Nova learns the ropes of being in Nanoscale while exploring the Albumenium.

Here's an example of the music, which I am again writing:

Stay tuned for more news, and thanks for your support on our games! Anodyne 2 is due out early Q2 2019 for Windows, Mac and Linux.

About This Game

Wishlist Anodyne 2 today! Enter an evocative, surreal, lo-fi 3D and 2D world. The follow up to 2013's Anodyne is finally here!

Play as Nova, the Nano Cleaner, who is tasked with collecting dangerous Nano Dust growing throughout New Theland, which then must be returned for recycling to a mysterious entity, only known as the "Center".

Walk or ride across a lush, moody world. Discover strange characters and places. Shrink into characters and collect Nano Dust through 2D, Zelda-like gameplay, reminiscent of Anodyne 1.

Discover the true nature of the Nano Dust, Nova, and The Center, in the latest game from Analgesic Productions.

Anodyne 2: Return to Dust is coming early 2019 for Windows and Mac OSX. Much like Final Fantasy, there's no need to play Anodyne 1 to understand Anodyne 2's story, but longtime fans will find connections to Anodyne 1!
