    There’s little fat on this adventure. The aesthetic is unnerving and the audio production is second to none. What presents as a cute adventure quickly turns into an unsettling tale that might leave younger minds checking the closet for moving shadows. Just as you think things are starting to become mundane, Inmost unleashes a new twist. Whether that is a new character, a different enemy, or a new tale of woe, there’s no hanging around for filler. Inmost is short but the excellent proportion, charming visuals, and incredible audio all combine to make a truly enthralling experience. Grab it on a stormy night when you’re looking for something a little darker.

    The pixel art aesthetic of Inmost is one of its main protagonist, accompanying ideally the grim story.

    Somber, emotional, and allegoric, Inmost is more than the sum of its parts and a memorable experience, in spite of its short duration.

    Driven by a mastered artistic direction and a staging that hits the mark, Inmost is a dark and captivating tale that can be read in one go.

    Pixels shouldn’t be this scary. Inmost is a short but very memorable metroidvania horror, full of cinematic lighting and intricate diorama-like levels. The visual storytelling is masterful, and it’s without doubt the most atmospheric 2D game since Hollow Knight. Grab some noise-cancelling headphones and turn off the lights, you’re in for a fright.

    It's possible that the hybridization of styles may it lose some steam, as it is a short experience, but there is no doubt that its essence is very intense. Solid. Intimate.

    I’ve worried before when criticising such tales that I might be undermining the real-life experiences of a creator, who is trying to process through their creation. I feel reasonably secure that no one has ever gone through a situation as ridiculous as what’s eventually depicted here. It’s bothered me.

    Если в этот шедевр, не побоюсь этого слова, сыграют разработчики или начальство таких ''шедевров'' как The Last of Us Part II или Call ofЕсли в этот шедевр, не побоюсь этого слова, сыграют разработчики или начальство таких ''шедевров'' как The Last of Us Part II или Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War на которые потрачены миллионы вечно зелёных и работали сотни а может и тысячи людей. Они я думаю напишут по собственному желанию или как минимум им будет очень стыдно, за то что они такие бездарные личности которые, явно занимаются не своим делом в этой жизни. Для понимания, изначально проект, несколько лет делали 2 человека. По существу, кто играет в графику а так же тупорылые ,сразу мимо. Людям же думающим, любящим подумать над не сложными ну интересными головоломками, которые играют в игры с прекрасным сюжетом и глубоким смыслом, я думаю непростительное расточительство пропустить этот шедевр. PS. Игру спиратил, но после прохождения, купил дабы поддержать талантливейших людей. Expand

I could not believe a game with such simple graphics could catch me that strong. Gameplay maybe not the best aswell, but the story covers it all. The story in really stunning - I could feel tears in my eyes at the end which happends with me not very often. It may be a bit confusing at the start, but at the end you will understand everything. Highly recommended for anyone. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Inmost, little scary at some parts, but it have interesting story, fill with many emotions. Like three stories, each have something to do with another one, and collecting secrets what can reveal deep to the story of the whole game. So if you want learn more of the story, then you must find hidden collectibles... It have strange feeling across whole game. Little details giving it higher level of experience . Good sky and very good ground details with grass and all these things.
    And, enemy attack system is just normal, nothing special about that stuff. Interesting black things, half of that can be easily killed, but you must just find out how. But thats different in the knight story, you can just smash them all with your power.
    What to say. Another well managed game nothing bad at it. For me, 9 score
