What the press said:
“MASTERPIECE! Inside is a 2D puzzle platformer that builds upon what made Limbo great, and in fact builds something greater.”
IGN — 10/10
“Inside expands on the concepts and scope of its predecessor in wildly creative ways, and it's so immaculately designed and constructed from top to bottom that it almost feels suitable for display in an art museum. This is one hell of a follow-up.”
Giant Bomb — 5/5

Ratings and Reviews
Deciphering this game is no easy task—it feels like a metaphor. Is it a commentary on the fragile nature of trust and human connection? A scathing critique of our blind adherence to authority? Or is it just really weird? Regardless, INSIDE is an incredible journey with increasingly bizarre encounters that mix action with clever puzzle designs. The game isn’t meant to be entirely understood. It’s meant to be experienced.
Don’t pay attention to one star reviews
Apparently there are a lot of morons in the world whom can’t seem to read, and comprehend that it’s is free trial with the option to purchase. It is CLEARLY stated several times on the main description and info page. Also a ton of 1 star reviews from weird and strange people who feel entitled to a free game. What world to the live? Do you just go to the grocery, or gas station heck any store and just say hey this should be free, I don’t have the money make free, I have 1$ can’t afford make free. Heck they have the audacity to call it a scam which is insanity and outrageous. Especially when it’s a well developed games like this, they have teams of people and spend countless hours working on these games and it is there job. You don’t just get to go to game stop and say hey I don’t have moneys I want GTA 6 give me free? News flash, none of these games are free, others just have tons of countless annoying pop up adds, thank god this one does not and it’s only $7 for Christ sakes. They don’t OWE you anything free they put their hard earned time into making this it didn’t just make itself. Imagine you worked a job and someone said they don’t have the money oh well thanks for working but I will not pay you.
Beautiful, but short.
This game was so bizarre, and so beautifully rendered. It was very fun, but very short. I’m used to putting some time into games, so I can enjoy a campaign over several weeks or months, but I finished Inside in two sessions, in about 2-3 hours, total. I’m not the kind of gamer to replay games, and this title has little to no replay value. There is only one mode, and one difficulty setting. The puzzles are relatively easy to solve. I only found myself stuck twice, and each time only for a few minutes. I used a Steelseries Nimbus controller, but without that the controls would’ve been frustrating. You swipe left and right to move (like a virtual stick) but to jump you have to swipe up, and to interact with objects you tap/hold. This scheme seems simple enough, until you reach a part where a precision jump is required, or you must interact with an object in a precise time frame.
Pros: good graphics and sound, unique environments, puzzle are fun to solve, intriguing story/feel.
Cons: Very short for a $7 game, touch controls can be mildly frustrating, (SPOILER ALERT) No dialog or backstory and inconclusive ending. If you were hoping the intriguing setting would be explained in the end, you’ll be let down.
