OverviewOverview

Inside is from the same developer as Limbo. As such, you play another boy in a dark dream-light and horrific world. Here though, it's more modern-day and realistic.

Running, jumping, swimming and interacting your way through the environments is no easy task. But it is the setting and visual back-story that really steals the show. In part dystopian future, and in part run-away corporation, the people and places you encounter tell a story. As you plough on through offices and laboratories, the boy sees scientists observing a large spherical chamber.

At times it involves more time-based interactions, which can trip up new players, but as with Limbo it offers a unique narrative experience that requires the player to interpret the often emotive scenes and scenarios they are thrown into.
