The Inner Friend has players journey through a rich but wordless story where they must elude gruesome beings and collect memories in order to restore peace to a distressed mind.

Dive into the depths of the subconscious to face childhood nightmares in action horror game The Inner Friend as players journey through a rich but wordless story where they must elude gruesome beings and collect memories in order to restore peace to a distressed mind.

Led by a mysterious Shadow, face fears and nightmares inhabiting its materialized subconscious universe. Dive into a unique and eerie world to relive the Shadow’s childhood memories and overcome them to restore what was once a safe haven. You’ll journey ever deeper through the subconscious to unravel a rich but wordless story and encounter gruesome beings that you must evade. Ultimately, however, you will have to face them.

The Inner Friend features a rich visual environment, supported by an immersive soundscape and a cinematic soundtrack enhancing immersion and emotional moments. Movement, imagery, and music are the main ways for the player to interact with the Shadow, their guide throughout the descent. Dark and scary, mysterious at times, the world of The Inner Friend is a surrealist representation of memories and fears.


“When you’re a child the world can seem like a pretty scary place, where normal people such as doctors can appear as monsters,” said Emmanuel Sévigny, CEO of PLAYMIND. “In The Inner Friend we convey this emotional experience into action gameplay that will thrill players while providing a touching connection to their inner child.”

PlayMind will have The Inner Friend playable in PAX Rising at this year’s PAX West, where attendees can earn hands-on time with the game prior to release.
