Animal Well is a puzzle, Metroidvania 2D platformer and its early reviews say that it’s a contender to be a game of the year and a cult classic. In this game, you hatch from your flower and spelunk through the pixelated world of Animal Well. As you progress, you come across interesting creatures, unique upgrades and discover the well’s secrets over time.

It’s a nonliner game so you can explore and collect items in whichever order you choose. As you’ll see from the trailer, exploration is made more haunting with atmospheric lighting. Enemies, environment, and items interact in surprising ways and all items have multiple uses. There are over 250 rooms and loads of puzzles to solve in this combat-free Metroidvania, but things aren’t completely safe here because danger is lurking everywhere.

So, if you like to play games with a pixel art style combined with great sound design to create a truly immersive world, you might like this one! Take a look at the gameplay trailer here:
