History

Sean began the development of Anodyne in March 2012, and met Jon in late June. As they are both students, they have worked together on Anodyne since, in between summer and academic year responsibilities.

Development News

News is frequently posted to Anodyne's IndieDB Page. You'll do Jon and I a huge favor if you watch our IndieDB Page, or better yet, tell a few friends about Anodyne!

I (Sean) also occasionally update my blog with design and programming commentary on the development of Anodyne. I also have a tendency to post new screenshots via my Twitter feed.

These mentions are all from before release. I'm working on making a new page for post-release press.

  • Rock, Paper, Shotgun "The demo...shows some smart design and has a charming weirdness to it." "...the hit detection and feel of movement in the demo are spot on."
  • PC Gamer "... a top-down tribute of Zelda-esque dungeon derring-do with a 16-bit coat"
  • Indie Statik "...there's much more to the game than just a rise from zero to hero via means of dispatching of foe and conquering puzzle rooms..."

    Developers

    Anodyne is in development by Sean "Seagaia" Hogan and Jon Kittaka. I (Sean) do the programming and music, Jon does the artwork. We split the design work - e.g., I design dungeons, Jon focuses on story.
