The Inner World – A 2D-Point’n’Click Adventure
Robert is a novice, a bit clueless, but with a heart of gold. He lives a peaceful life as a court musician in Asposia's largest wind monastery. Contrary to the laws of physics, Asposia is an enormous, hollow space surrounded by an infinite expanse of earth. The world's air is provided through three wind fountains, but as one wind fountain after the other petered out and the wind gods came to Asposia, all of the sudden Robert found him in the middle of a whirlwind.
Together with the help of the mysterious thief Laura, his best intentions and no clue whatsoever, Robert sets off on his adventure to discover the secret of the wind's disappearance. Will the young adventurer be able to save his world? And what are Laura´s secret intentions…?

Ratings and Reviews
Unique and Beautiful, but short
As others have mentioned, the puzzles are not quite intuitive, which I actually think made the game interesting. There is a help section that can quickly guide you through each puzzle if you truly get stuck. The story was cute, and I love the style of the animation. The transitions between parts of the world also load quickly, unlike some other point and click adventures I’ve played. Overall it was fun, I just wish it were a little longer. It takes maybe 4 hours if you’re actually listening to all the diologue. Another note, I noticed the game is rated 4+, but there are a few cuss words that some parents might not want their children to come across in a computer game. Didn’t bother me, I just thought it’s worth pointing out. Overall, great game. Will be trying the 2nd version.
Fun, but short
Some nonsensical puzzles but the graphics, music and styule are great--a classic adventure game. Wish it was longer!
Not Very Intuitive
Was excited about this one. Thought maybe it would be a little like Machinarium. It's definitely nothing like Machinarium, and that was still okay with me. But as I kept playing this game I realized that what they were asking me to do were tasks that I would never guess in a million years. One task was to oil a bar stool. I could've came up with a list of 100 things I would use to oil a bar stool, but nowhere on that list would've been a fish. And what you needed was indeed a fish. But wait… I couldn't pick up the fish because it was too oily. Hmmm… Oh, I see, you want me to go find a newspaper now to wrap the fish up in. This game is just very confusing, and in the end all you do is step by step of what they guide you to through the hint system because you'll never figure out what to do on your own for half of the tasks. Very disappointed for the money I spent.
