PCGamer has spotted an amazing indie to-down title that feels like a mix between the 2D versions of Zelda and the atmosphere of Silent Hill. According to the game’s description, in Anodyne, you explore and fight your way through nature, urban and abstract themed areas in the human Young’s subconscious, evoked by a 16-bit-era visual style and a moody, dream-like soundtrack.
The player moves between rooms 160×160 pixels in size, an intended constraint that they used to create the monster-filled dungeons you will navigate and the set of nature-based (and sometimes stranger) places you will explore.
Anodyne is currently available via Desura and is priced at $8 for Windows, Mac, Linux. PC gamers can also vote for this title at Steam’s Greenlight and can download a demo from here.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
