As you awake in the corridors of an inexplicable building, you find the environment takes on a life of its own and leads you to discover a series of victims, all exposed to the same experimental therapy. In your search for answers, bizarre visions emerge and introduce a host of imposing horrors. With your sanity in question, you have no choice but to rely on your instinct…and a cat named Tonia. In Sound Mind is a witty first-person psychological horror with frenetic puzzles, unique boss fights, and original music by The Living Tombstone. Explore and fight through a series of unsettling memories as you journey within the inner workings of the one place you can’t seem to escape—your own mind. Expand

    Above all else, In Sound Mind is fun. The horror and melancholy of what’s going on in the plot is balanced out by light-hearted camp, the levels are all interwoven exploration puzzles where a new tool invariably makes you realize several new areas you can discover, it’s all so easy to just get lost for hours and hours until next thing you know it’s 3AM.

    I enjoyed In Sound Mind far more than I expected to, thanks to the great variety to its puzzles and overall atmosphere. While the final revelations didn't blow me away, they did bring a wry smile to my face. In Sound Mind is one of my favourite indie horror games of the past few years and is highly recommended if you’re a fan of the genre.

    In Sound Mind is a solid psychological horror with a lot of surprises and it’s an overall great experience.

    In Sound Mind excels at its atmosphere and characterization of Desmond and the delusions of his patients. Combat can feel a little lackluster, and the story structure is formulaic. However, there is a love of horror on display found in the environments and core design of the experience.

    In short, it is far from equaling the pillars from which it is inspired (Outlast, Layers of Fear, Silent Hill ...) or even from being a very good game, despite a certain potential.

    All told, In Sound Mind wasn’t the game I was expecting. But I still found myself pushing forward, eager to uncover a little bit more. If you’ve got any appetite for cerebral horror and puzzle solving, In Sound Mind might be just what you’re looking for.

    In Sound Mind is a solid horror game brought down by massive problems. It never runs smoothly and the controls are imprecise. The worst part during our time with the game was when we had to circumvent a game-breaking bug by triggering another bug on purpose.

It feels inspired by games such as Silent Hill, and focuses on a therapist going through nightmares from his patients. The gameplay is really good, the puzzle solving required me to think, and the music is great. I'm getting close to beating this game, but if you want an indie horror game, than please give In Sound Mind a shot, I'm sure you will love it Expand

    In general, this game is pretty cool, but have a freaking ton of invisible walls that will screw you if you are looking for all collectibles.
