Kalypso Media are pleased to announce that the retail version of the horror adventure title Anna Extended Edition is now available to buy in stores across the UK and Export territories. Created by Italian developer Dreampainters, Anna – Extended Edition boasts an improved interface and will also include new puzzles and new environments allowing for many more hours of game play as well as exclusive in box extras.
Anna is a first-person horror adventure that explores the darkest depths of the human psyche. Set in an abandoned sawmill nestled high in the Italian mountains, Anna challenges the player to uncover clues and use them to solve puzzles related to your character’s dark past. The player’s behaviour does not only determine the mental health of the main character but can also change locations and unveil new secrets leading to one of the many endings.
Anna – Extended Edition has been given an overhaul based on the feedback of the thousands of players of the original Anna. It features more environments, more hours of game play, more puzzles, additional gameplay features, enhanced graphics and an improved interface.
Anna wasn’t the best received game ever
“That is until you realize you really have nothing to worry about. You see, while a few big scares occur throughout the short story, the fear-inducing moments become neutered when you realize you can’t die, lose or otherwise find yourself in an irreparable situation. Suddenly the unknown spirits that taunted me went from beings of unknown and frightening power to uninteresting annoyances; spirits who were just out to slow me down rather than do me any actual harm. As the umpteenth can raised into the air and slammed into my head my adrenaline continued to pump, but only out of frustration with Anna’s anger-inducing puzzles.” IGN
So this game needed an overhaul (just for the record I didn’t like it either). Here is a list of updates and a link to their steam page.
