Indie Metroidvania Animal Well, The First Game From Dunkey’s Bigmode Publisher, Gets May Release Date

By admin Mar18,2024

Animal Well, the gorgeous indie metroidvania that will also be the first game published by Videogamedunkey’s Bigmode, will hit PlayStation 5, Switch, and PC this May. More specifically, developer Shared Memory, which is just solo dev Billy Basso, revealed in a new gameplay trailer the game will launch on May 9. 

Dunkey revealed Big Mode, his own publishing arm, back in 2022, later announcing that Shared Memory’s Animal Well would be the first game it publishes. Now, just shy of two years later, Animal Well will finally be in the hands of players in just a couple of months.

“After nearly 7 years of development, Animal Well is finally almost ready to be released out into the world,” Basso writes on X (formerly Twitter). “I have made this trailer to commemorate the occasion. I hope you like it. I don’t really know what else to say.” 

As you can see in the trailer above, Animal Well continues to look hauntingly gorgeous, and even kind of cute if you’re a fan of spooky animals. We also get new glimpses of the game’s metroidvania exploration, too, by way of a special yo-yo with a light that lures animals forward and more. Plus, there’s a dog, which rules. 

Animal Well hits PlayStation, Switch, and PC on May 9.
