Animal Well is a retro-style 2D puzzle game with platform game elements. It is a debut project of Shared Memory studio.

Game mechanics

In Animal Well our task is to overcome challenges on 2D maps. The game world is huge and its exploration takes place in a non-linear way, allowing us to freely choose the order of tasks.

Our hero is defenseless, so to survive we have to rely on dexterity while avoiding threats and, above all, on cunning. The most important element of the gameplay here are puzzles. During the exploration we find a variety of items that interact with objects in the environment and creatures inhabiting the game universe.

Each item we get can be used in many different ways, and most puzzles have several alternative solutions.

The game world is initially plunged in darkness. Along with the progress, the player fills the map with candles, revealing successive segments of the land. An additional attraction is a rich set of optional secrets waiting to be discovered.
