Atmospheric platformer INSIDE lands on iOS and Apple TV
Playdead is a Danish indie game developer with only two games in its portfolio, currently – the 2010 contre-jour smash hit Limbo and the recent INSIDE, which is a refinement of Limbo's formula. But despite having only a pair of games under its belt right now, Playdead has proved itself as a developer capable of delivering unique, touching experiences with minimalist storytelling. The worlds of Limbo and INSIDE are dark, mesmerizing, and full of peril, and you can now experience both on the go!
Joining Limbo on mobile, INSIDE is now available on iOS and the Apple TV as a free trial, with the full game unlockable for $6.99. I don't want to spoil anything about the game, since it's such a unique experience, but let me just say that Playdead has gone above and beyond to realize its artistic vision. Posing as a simple 2D puzzle-platformer, INSIDE is an excellently paced experience with minimal, but organically unfolding, story and a soundtrack that came from within a human skull. No, I don't mean the composer's skull, I mean that the soundtrack was recorded by feeding the music into the bone of an actual human skull with a microphone placed against it to capture the sound. Yikes.
