Anodyne was the Indie Zelda-like released in 2013 that was a fan favorite on Cheerful Ghost during that time. I love the game so much we did a couple interviews with the studio that made the game(linked below). They released a follow up to Anodyne called Even The Ocean to great reviews and recently dropped news of an Anodyne sequel Anodyne 2: Return to Dust. It looks to harken back to the Nintendo 64 3D era which really works for the tone of the game and feels like a proper Anodyne follow up.

For me Anodyne wasn't just an awesome Indie game it also contains one of the best game soundtracks around. I listen to it still and the music is so iconic to me it sort of transcended the game itself. The trailer has the main Anodyne theme playing but it's a new take on it and I can't wait to hear all the new tunes and play the new game when it drops in 2019!

Wow that trailer was short and doesn’t give a lot but that style looks like a perfect mashup of the N64 Zelda style and the PSX Final Fantasy style. Mostly IX. I can’t even explain why it looks like that to me, but it does.

I’m stoked
