Playdead presents the studio's 2nd project with the game Inside. A boy falls down a slope and gets on an adventure. You take control of the boy in this interactive jump & run game.
Inside is very dark and looks very hopeless. The atmosphere is depressing. If the boy is discovered, the consequences are devastating. A simple game over is not enough. Every discovery shows the brutality of the game, which brings redemption with death. The puzzles of the game are not too difficult to integrate into the environment. There is no uniform narrative tempo, because this alternates.
A certain tension is inevitable. Often he gets into hopeless situations from which he can find his way out. Similar to Limbo, questions about the story also pile up in this game. The game does not provide any answers. The player has to make up his own mind about it.
The game's confusion is fascinating in its own way. The story of the game is conveyed through the backdrop. It is a dark fairy tale that tells nothing and everything. The player has to come up with his own thoughts and that is exactly what makes the game so worthwhile. You are definitely excited and it leaves its mark. Inside is definitely recommended.
