Abstract themed landscapes? Dungeons in the human Young's subconscious? Yes! This might be the closest thing to iOS Earthbound yet.
Is that a homage to the work of psychoanalysit Carl Jung (Jung renamed as Young) who worked with the subconscious or am I overthinking things? Maybe we'll see some deliberate embedded Freudian imagery and symbology secondary to the gameplay.
It seems like there's a lot of surreal almost psychadelic depth to Anodyne.
