The Inner Darkness:

A lone man's journey through a strange world. Unique dimension switching mechanic - switch between the dimensions to traverse the world and solve puzzles.

The game is a fairly short story-focused 2d action/puzzle platformer.


You're a man, awaken in a strange place with a terrible stomach wound. You have no clue why and how you got there, and why your stomach is bleeding. All alone, weak and fragile - you will have to find help, and solve the mystery behind it all.

The Inner Darkness reviews and comments

Translated by

As An Indie Developer (Dead Age, Grotesque Tactics and Holy Avatar), I also like to play other Indiespie and write many Reviews. However, my Opinion is always neutral. The Inner Darkness has gameplay technically a bit of Limbo or Inside. The Dimensional Leap is not the latest Idea but has been well implemented here. But There are also other Challenges and moving to Boxes I have always stood. xD For an Indie Title relatively short but really good Quality. Like most of them, I played through the Game and felt consistently well entertained. New Puzzles were added again and again and later also other Challenges. Compliments to the Developer Nauris-So should be Small Indie games. :) I hope the Title will attract even more Attention.

A very short Puzzle Platformer with Dimensions Change Feature. We play a Man who wakes up in a very strange Place and now have to try to escape from this Place. You run Classic from left to right to get to the next Scene. You jump over Chasms and evading Spines that protrude from the Ground. One uses the Dimensional Change function to solve different Puzzles, because only in one Dimension, for example, is an Object or a Box that we need in order to get further. Actually, You are constantly switching back and forth between dimensions. After a good 40 Minutes you have the Game already through and we see the End and there will be a lot clearer. Achievements Unfortunately, there are none. + Short + Sound & Music OK + Atmosphere OK + Collectible Cards-Unfortunately No Achievements-Price to High Conclusion: Nice Short Puzzle Plateformers. Recommended At All time, but I would wait for a Sale

A good platform game in which you will have to switch between two parallel worlds to solve puzzles. It is certainly a bit short but its history intriguing will keep you in suspense until the end. You do not know how or why you landed in this strange world, and why you feel these terrible pains and bleeding in the stomach, the only thing you are persuaded is that you have to move forward and flee as quickly as this place terrifying. The scenery will be pretty, attractive and colorful, sometimes greyish, creepy and evil. Sometimes blocks of crates, or spikes you will block the passage, it will be necessary to play with these 2 parallel dimensions to advance and unlock certain situations. The difficulty is gradual and will make you seriously cogitate in places. The graphics are beautifully pixelated, the small narrative phrases and the music immediately plunge you into the mood. A fun and charming little game. If you want more ratings visit my curation page
