The Inner Friend Dropping onto the Xbox One this Summer

Are you one of those weirdos who like psychological horror games? Ok, we are kidding about the whole weirdo thing, but we aren’t kidding about like the genre we just mentioned.  If so, then we thing that this game news might be just for you.

Independent game developer and interactive digital media studio PLAYMIND have announced that an expanded edition of their psychological horror game The Inner Friend will release on Xbox One this summer.

The Inner Friend unlocks the doorway to the subconscious, inviting players to conquer gruesome beings and nightmares materialized from mental anguish. This emotional and narrative-driven experience is inspired by the works of psychologist Carl Jung and the filmography of Stanley Kubrick.

It is said to be themed after psychologist Carl Jung’s concept of katabasis — the descent into one’s own self — ‘80s horror pop culture staples such as Poltergeist, and the filmography of Stanley Kubrick, The Inner Friend explores complex emotional themes and the childhood psychology surrounding coping mechanisms to overcome traumatic experiences. The Inner Friend’s lead designer and writer Sabrina Calvo is an award-winning author and child educator. The game’s narrative uniquely features no dialogue or text, tasking players with piecing the story together through exploration and observation. 

The Inner Friend had its debut on consoles at this past weekends PAX East 2019. For those who could not attend, take a look at the trailer below:
