It’s time to face your childhood nightmares by diving into the depths of the subconscious in adventure horror game The Inner Friend from independent developer PLAYMIND. Launching today on PC via Steam for $14.99 USD, The Inner Friend has players journey through a rich but wordless story where they must elude gruesome beings and collect memories in order to restore peace to a distressed mind. To celebrate the game’s release, there is a 10% discount for the launch week.
In The Inner Friend players must use diverse mechanics derived from classic childhood games (Hide & Seek, Floor is Lava, Marco Polo) to face childhood fears and nightmares in order to retrieve a lost part of themselves: the inner child. The Inner Friend relies mostly on atmosphere to create a unique and eerie experience that comes pretty close to the feeling of being a powerless child again.
“The subconscious holds our deepest, darkest thoughts and we knew it would be fun to develop a game that taps into these memories,” said Emmanuel Sévigny, CEO of PLAYMIND. “With The Inner Friend we bring to light our hidden fears and force players to confront what may lie in their own subconscious.”
