Publisher Chucklefish and developer Hidden Layer Games announced in August 2018 that they work on a new title, an atmospheric story-driven puzzle game, Inmost. Now, they announced more about it, including the fact that Inmost would come out this year for Nintendo Switch and PC (via Steam).
“Inmost is an atmospheric, story-driven puzzle platformer, following three playable characters within one dark, interconnecting story. In an old abandoned castle, you’ll need to explore every nook and cranny, avoid detection, slice your way through enemies and spring deadly traps in order to escape the evil that lurks within,” the official game’s description reads.
“A Knight sworn to the forces of darkness. A creature which feeds on pain. A stranger searching for answers. One interconnecting tale of suffering, sacrifice, and the young girl in the middle of it all,” the description continues.
Inmos Would Come Out This Year for Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam
According to the official site, the essential features of Inmos, an atmospheric story-drive puzzle game, are:
- A ghoulishly atmospheric, yet beautiful pixel art world.
- Three main characters, each with their own unique gameplay styles.
- One interweaving story, set across two worlds.
- Scale the environment by sneaking past enemies, luring them into deadly traps, solving puzzles and slicing down foes.
- Explore every inch of the world to find secret passages.
- Each pixel is placed with love!
The title promises to be a very interesting game, arcade style, with many puzzles to solve and lots of creepy enemies to defeat. The in-game atmosphere looks fantastic, at least from the photos, GIFs, and the trailer Chucklefish and Hidden Layer Games released so far, and I believe Inmost would be a very nice game to kill your free time when you don’t have any other game to play.
We don’t know yet when in 2019 the game would roll out. Below, there is the official trailer that announces Inmost for Nintendo Switch:
