Trailer: “Inside”


I am not a gamer by any stretch of the imagination but I do like puzzles. A few years ago a Danish publisher called Playdead released an indie puzzle game called “Limbo” that completely blew my mind. It was kinda dark, with beautifully stylized animation, and insanely difficult puzzles. The game really struck a chord, won all kinds of awards, and scored 10/10 on many sites. (If you have an iPad, you should get this game for your next flight.)

Playdead has just released a trailer for their new game “Inside” and it looks spectacular. I probably won’t post about video games too often but this is a work of art. I kinda wish it was a movie; I don’t even own an Xbox. Watch the trailer below.

    I’m not much of a gamer either but I agree this looks amazing. I wish it was a movie, too. I feel like companies that develop games like this should work with filmmakers and writers – they’ve already done the hard work of generating all this art, why not let somebody write a few stories around the game and have a short film or web series or something that uses the characters and artwork to expand the story. Create a deeper world.

  • Matias Armendaris

    a game is usually already a story and there are good examples of how it can be a different medium for art making, this is one of them. It is already like a movie, but more complex, you get to interact with the story, you are give some extra time to savor the details of the world. I´m glad to see a beautiful video game appearing on booooooom; you don´t need to be a gamer to appreciate intriguing interactive narrative and a carefully crafted world.

    This game looks so amazing and creepy. Love how smooth the animation looks.
