Inmost delivers a variety of gameplay styles, delivering three thoughtfully discordant narratives that tie together with a gut punch at the end. Beautifully constructed pixel-art graphics set a surprisingly somber tone, and the music is top notch at setting the horrific yet contemplative mood. Recommended.

Inmost is a very sad and psychologically moving story about loss, personal experiences and pain, which gives players a hope for purification and redemption, showing a bright and love-filled ending.

INMOST was a pleasant surprise. The game was a short experience with a powerful narrative with effects that can last so much longer. As for the gameplay itself, the fun puzzles and collaboration with the story helped to bring the game to life.

While the story isn't all that great, the message at the end of the game makes it all worthwhile. You play as a few characters
BEAUTIFUL COLOURS OF DARKNESS: It was clear, how the main theme of Inmost is dark and depressive. Even though, the colour palette is absolutely beautiful, having huge variation of shades, it was still sad-esque to look at without other primary colours.
