Montreal-based PLAYMIND is bringing its experimental psychological horror game, The Inner Friend, to consoles following a seemingly successful Steam release back in 2018. As such, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners will soon be able to experience what is described as being a “mindblowing,” “critically acclaimed” and experimental horror game. At least, those are some of the buzzwords found in its most recent press release.
The story of The Inner Friend takes you on a journey through a fragmented dreamscape, led by a mysterious Shadow. Horrifying monsters stalk The Shadow’s memories; the player must evade and fight them while dealing with obstacles and puzzles in the darkness of The Shadow’s mind.
“We at PLAYMIND are very excited to be able to share our game with a brand new audience on Xbox One and Playstation 4. While we are very proud of the accolades The Inner Friend has received, we think the best validation of our work comes from our fans that have allowed us to continue to make games. We can’t wait to welcome another wave of enthusiastic players to our community”, says Emmanuel Sevigny, founder and CEO at PLAYMIND.
The Inner Friend will come to consoles on April 28th, and will cost $14.99 USD when it does. Those who pre-order the game will receive a ten percent discount, while PlayStation Plus subscribers will receive 20% off.
