OverviewOverview

Inmost is a running and jumping game with a strong emotional and atmospheric narrative. You uncover a dark and interconnected tale of three playable characters, each with their own unique gameplay styles. An adventurous young girl uncovering the past of an eerie house. A stoic knight, sworn to forces of darkness, battling his way into the depths of a deteriorating castle. A wandering man searching for answers in a world not entirely his own.

As you explore the levels a story unfolds of suffering, sacrifice, and the young girl in the midst of it all, set in a pixel-art world.
