    It’s not a game that is going to be for everyone, and there are problems with direction, getting lost, and the onset of motion sickness. But overall it works great.

    A fascinating exploration/filght-sim mix, with great visuals and a good storytelling. Too bad it gets penalized by a troublesome control system, making the experience more frustrating than relaxing.

    InnerSpace takes place in a strange world, but it is also beautiful. The bright colours make the world seem friendly and welcoming, and the accompanying music provides a relaxing atmosphere. Players are free to explore the world at their own leisure, meaning that the gameplay should be relaxing too, but there are a couple of gameplay problems that sometimes get in the way.

    InnerSpace is a beautiful game with a well-worked gameplay. But unfortunately PolyKnight Games has not been able to fully connect its ideas. A pleasant initial experience can end up being a tedious one.

    InnerSpace is, without a doubt, an interesting experience. Despite its annoying inconveniences, it is a relaxing experience from start to finish. Its visuals are mesmerising, and its worlds are beautiful, but it’s difficult to accept it for what it is without comparing it to other, more successful games in the genre.

    The elements that build the game, its concept, its control, its artistic style, and even its script, are between the acceptable and the outstanding, and nevertheless the game sometimes fails in a noisy way at the basic point of any game: to entertain the gamers.

    InnerSpace is both relaxing and endearing, but fails to truly captivate due to the lack of meaningful progression and pace. It’s a game that encourages players to take a journey into the unknown, yet doesn’t quite relay what the player is journeying towards once there. It’s certainly pleasing at first, but it wears thin far sooner than it should.

InnerSpace is a game that never becomes overbearing and the relaxing atmosphere can be quite rewarding and in a way addictive at times. The most important aspect about this game is obviously the flying and thankfully they’ve done a great job here. The controls remain tight and responsive throughout and this means you enjoy traversing even more, which is great. Be prepared though to get lost quite a bit and trying to get back on track can be a real nuisance at times, but thankfully getting lost can also be rewarding at times as well. The reason it can be rewarding is because there are loads of collectables to find and finding these relics can be a treat at times and it also lends the game some replayability. Exploring also allows you to find little pieces of the story that are scattered around, and I must admit that I did enjoy the story that was present in the game. I would however have liked a few hints every now and then, but the game doesn’t offer these and your basically on your own throughout which can make finding out how to progress pretty frustrating. There is also a distinct lack of challenge in terms of the gameplay as well so things do become tedious eventually. The presentation side of the game is absolutely stunning and in a way it gives the game a unique edge to it. Visually the game is absolutely beautiful and it really is a treat for the eyes. The sound design is also a beautiful experience and when you combine the music and visuals together it really does deliver a great experience. At the end of the day InnerSpace is a game that is not going to be for everybody, but if you’re one of those people who wants to try something new then you will definitely find a lot of enjoyment here. This game offers you a relaxing and in a way rewarding experience with many of it’s mechanics working perfectly well. If you want a challenging experience then you won’t find it here, but this game isn’t meant to be challenging and instead it’s meant to be immersive. InnerSpace is far from being perfect, but when it’s all said and done it does more than enough to get a recommendation from me. Expand
