- Story in a nutshell: a boy running away from soldiers in an Orwellian world
Inside is another example of a game where the narrative is rather opaque and conducted mainly visually. It's a dark game – as a lonely boy, we run away from soldiers and dogs that are chasing him. The story encourages you to interpret the events yourself, while cooking up one of the grandest plot twists ever. The whole thing is very gloomy and mysterious.
The inconspicuous Inside is delightful, and the plot, presented very sparingly and symbolically, can be interpreted in many ways. It's a short game, but as an experience, it just stays with you.
