Animal Well is a platform puzzle game where you explore a dense, interconnected labyrinth. Play involves collecting items that let you manipulate the world in unexpected ways. It's a layered experience that works as a platform game but also hides secrets that are hard to discover.

Play involves exploring the world like other platform combat games. As you go you find items that provide new ways to change the environment and progress to new areas. But unlike more straight forward Metroid-style games there is a survival element too. You need to light candles for safety and gradually fill out your map.

The result is a game that you can progress at your own pace and rooms you can discover in whatever order you choose. Nothing is locked off from you, provided you know what to do. What keeps it from being quickly finished is the layered depth of its secrets that the developer intends the player community to discover together. "The main game is just the beginning. Players will be discovering hidden puzzles for years."
