We all have fears. Do you have what it takes to face yours?
Deep in a fragmented dreamscape led by a mysterious shadow, horrible monsters stalk the Shadow’s memories. Escape or fight them as you face obstacles and puzzles in the darkness of the Shadow’s mind.
We at Playmind are really excited to announce today’s launch of The Inner Friend on PS4. The Inner Friend will guide you through an “Alice in Wonderland” type world where you’ll face many challenges and childhood fears. You’ll be faced with a heavy atmosphere, manage tension and oppression, and will have to accept that you will be vulnerable at certain moments.
This game is a combination of horror and psychological genres. Sometimes you’ll have moments of respite where you’ll solve puzzles, and other times you’ll be chased by fears that you will have to face in order to survive. Gameplay is inspired by childhood games like jumping on beds, hide and seek, Marco Polo and more.
Players will face different fears that many may have experienced as a child. Whether it is the fear of hospitals, abandonment, the hairdresser, or school, everyone can recognize themselves in these fears. But are you capable of facing them?
In addition to going through these fears, you’ll have to gain the confidence of a shadow in order to regain inner peace — which isn’t always easy. Players will also find different artifacts to collect.
Tip from the studio: Play it with headphones and a big screen if you can — this is meant to be an immersive experience!
Are you ready to face your childhood fears? Take a deep breath and dive into a whole new world.
