In case you couldn't tell, InnerSpace is a game that you should be playing. The well-realized worlds, exceptional aesthetic and compelling exploration mechanics complement each other tremendously well. If you can get past the occasional bout of unnecessary complex exposition, the evolution of each environment tells a compelling enough story to keep you enthralled from start to finish. Drop everything and check out what deserves to be one of the sleeper hits of 2018.
Overall this is an incredible game and a must play experience. The feel of the game is pervasive and stays with you while you aren't playing it as only the best games do.
Should you want a relaxing game of exploration and discovery, where each crevice and cavern hides a secret to be found, InnerSpace is for you. A marvel of perfectly blended themes, music, and gameplay—standing out for the attention to detail put in. I look forward to seeing what else PolyKnight Games is capable of.
More than just another artsy indie game, InnerSpace nearly earns a place among the greats were it not for niggling issues with the controls
Overall, Innerspace is a very relaxing, charming, and beautifully colorful release on PlayStation 4. The gameplay mechanics, art style, and music come together to give us a very interesting release that is definitely worth your time and money. Trophy hunters will be able to aim at getting a Platinum trophy added to their collection, which is always a plus, right? Kudos to PolyKnight Games and Aspyr for working to release this one, since it's a great addition to the PS4 library.
InnerSpace is a relaxing experience, a polished game, a work of art. Unfortunately, only people who look for something more peaceful will be able to enjoy it, since it is so zen. The way in which it sets this alternative universe is exceptional, and even with a lacklustre narrative and not-so-clear objectives, it deserves the attention of many.

While InnerSpace struggles a bit on the technical side of things, the core game is a wonderful flight though worn out but still beautiful sci-fi landscapes.
There were many times where I was at the point of feeling completely lost, only to find that just around the corner contained the clue to unlock my next destination. While the controls could use a bit more polish, InnerSpace really came to be a beautiful experience that I grew to love. Nothing was handed to me, but I felt like I was actually charting the land and helping understand what had happened in this mystical world that was presented before me. If an ambient and memorizing adventure is what you're in the mood for, don't be afraid to explore the depths of InnerSpace.
InnerSpace absolutely won’t be a game that everyone will enjoy. People seeking action and intensity will be sorely disappointed by this relatively “boring” experience that reveals itself with a slow and deliberate pace. If you are someone who feels a need for a constant beacon guiding you to your next task you will also likely find the freedom the game affords aggravating. If you’re someone who expects perfect performance it is worth noting that at times these large open spaces and details can make the framerate drag a bit. If, however, you are looking for something completely different, gorgeous, and full of a certain sense of calm and serenity there’s absolutely nothing like it on the platform.
It’s not a game that is going to be for everyone, and there are problems with direction, getting lost, and the onset of motion sickness. But overall it works great.
