Inside, a popular indie side-scrolling puzzle-platformer by the makers of Limbo, is headed to Nintendo Switch and iOS devices at an unannounced date. This news comes via a Famitsu interview with a Playdead developer. The game is already available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
Count me among those who were not terribly impressed by the game nor its predecessor, Limbo. The visuals are nice and I appreciate the story-telling and gameplay without tons of text-boxes, extended cut-scenes, and tutorials, however, the puzzles and platforming elements are standard. The games feel tedious and the big surprises don’t really do much for me.
A game that’s in the same vein as those but is leagues better is Little Nightmares. That is the game that deserves the recognition and awards that Inside and Limbo receive. Go play Little Nightmares and just watch the last 20 minutes of Inside on YouTube if you’re curious.
