The pixel platformer/Metroidvania Animal Well was first announced for Switch during an Indie World presentation back in April 2023, and at that time we heard it was going to launch early 2024. I don’t know if you consider May “early 2024,” but nevertheless, the game has been confirmed for launch today.

Hatch from your flower and spelunk through the beautiful and sometimes haunting world of Animal Well, a pixelated wonder rendered in intricate audio and visual detail. Encounter lively creatures small and large, helpful and ominous as you discover unconventional upgrades and unravel the well’s secrets. This is a truly unique experience that can make you laugh in fear, surprise, or delight.

  • Dense atmospheric puzzle box world with tons of secrets
  • Light candles for safety and gradually fill out your map
  • Nonlinear – explore and collect items in whatever order you choose

Want a bit more insight into ANIMAL WELL? Here’s some tips straight from the dev team to get you started.

  • Animal Well is all about exploration and observation. If you’re not sure how to proceed, keep an eye out for hidden pathways that may lead to new areas or other surprises.
  • Visit the peacock room early and often!
  • Animal Well is designed with three different layers. The first layer is the basic content you’re required to complete to get to the end of the main game. The second layer requires deeper exploration and some more challenging puzzles you may not have noticed your first time around. The third level is intended to be a big challenge with lots of puzzles you may not even realize are puzzles!
