6 / 10.0

In Between is a confused puzzle-platformer with some interesting ideas but ultimately, the story held my interest more than the game itself.

In Between is full of poetic metaphors and beautiful visual storytelling, but is so bogged down by the awkward and imprecise gameplay that it's hard to enjoy playing it, even if you appreciate its artistic value.

7.6 / 10.0

In Between is a good compromise between puzzle mechanics and digital storytelling. It�s not a perfect product, and it�s not suitable for any audience, since its difficulty � nerve-racking at times � could discourage less stubborn players. But it�s still a heartfelt, challenging and fulfilling game.

In Between might be mistaken for just another puzzle platformer, but it's anything but. It tackles some serious subject matter with a level of confidence that is rarely seen in games today.
