Vinty has been getting nowhere with her calligraphy. Her confidence has sunk to an all time low.
As life pressures her toward giving up, will she forget why she pursued this craft in the first place?

Without Within is a short visual novel that explores the creative mind. The game was released for free in Christmas 2014 as thanks to everyone for supporting my endeavors thus far. For those who kindly appreciate the experience and wish to make a contribution, there is an Extra Edition DLC that includes the soundtrack, a digital artbook, as well as three inspirational chase cards.

Unfortunately, being a free game, Without Within is unable to feature trading cards. Sorry Vinty!

Thank you! I hope you will enjoy the read.

Without Within reviews and comments

Translated by

Very short but very cool, funny enough and with pretty pretty illustrations, a really nice soundtrack too. It does not pay for mine, it will probably not leave an imperishable memory but it is a cool time to pass. Go for it, Vinty!

For now, I have more here the impression of dealing with the intro of a Visual novel than a full game. By the time I was thinking that the story was going to ' really ' start, I learn that this is the end... Interesting story that should be further developed.

Product received for free Without Within is a lovingly designed Visual Novel. Every Decision you make In-game has an Impact on the Story, which I Think makes the Game a high replay value. For fans of Visual Novels Absolutely recommended! https://youtu.be/YQTVYcxMWrA

I don't even kapier the sense of this "game ..." In the serious it's just a few (don't let me lie ... Five?) 50/50 answer where you have a bad ending at the wrong one and you get on with the other one and at the end nothing happens and the whole game takes maybe 5 minutes (no wit!). If I had paid something for it I would file a smooth file suit because of fraud

Extremely short. I finished it in less than half an hour. This is the kind of game or there is only a "good" choice and a "bad". If we take the wrong, we will die right away and we have to start over. Make the same choices, replay the same dialogues to the point where we were rendered... For a rather disappointing story in fact. A chance that it was free... Nevertheless, the soundtrack and the style of the game were very beautiful.

"Without Within" is a Visual Novel Centered around Miss Vinty, whose biggest Dream is to become a respected Calligrapher. + funny Story with lots of Bad Ends + peppy music + Drawing with own Charm-too short Conclusion: "WW" IS nice little Team project. The Development Team, consisting of 2 People, managed to present the Story credibly with vigorously Self-humour. As a Free Game you should have treated yourself to half an hour of Playing time.

Without Within ... + Graphic Style + Humor + Some Choices that have influenced the Progress of the Story (much simpler than it may sound here)-> + Multiple Endings + sound effects + music-> Not Always just the same-Very short-Almost just text Wieso I rate it Despite the positive Aspects that clearly make up the Majority, negative? Conclusion: These 2 negative Points outweigh the positives with Ease. If you expect an interactive Short Story, you won't be disappointed. I guess I just got on with the wrong Expectations.
