New Blip: Animal Well

Animal Well, from Shared Memory (game tweets), is a super-chunky nonlinear metroidvania where you explore a deep well, encounter the strange creatures with, and discover its secrets. You take on the role of a little round potato-ish critter who was just born into the pixelliest of worlds by emerging from a flower. As you explore, you gain new abilities that can be used to access new areas, but perhaps not in the traditional ways. Blow bubbles that can be used as platforms, toss a stretchy yo-yo that can grapple around corners, and... play fetch? Solve environmental puzzles to open up new sections of the map, or occasionally clear the path forward with the help of some TNT, but try not to get eaten by any of the animals that tower above you.

The game is coming to PC, Switch, and PS5, but it does not yet have an announced release date.
