Innocence Island is an adventure game where find yourself in a strange land without even the memory of how to walk. You explore the world by observing and learning skills from the creatures around you. It stands out as a journey through a world where knowledge is hard won and even the simplest of tasks must be learned from first principles.

NotesAccessibility Notes


The game offers visual cues to help you navigate.
  • Butterflies: These are scattered around the world and indicate which should be your next destination.
  • Rest: Once you go up the tree and unlock your conscience, every time you release the controls for a few seconds the conscience appears and points you to your next target/destination.

Wearing the helmet avoids any forced hostile encounters like the demons at night. Every other violence action in game is avoidable. Blood is only displayed in game after you have repeatedly killed humans or animals.

You can fully remap and swap controller sticks and buttons on PC but not on console.

You can make the Head Up Display text larger but there is still quite a lot of small text to read in the game.
