The latest (second) game from Limbo developers Playdead games is finally here. Inside initially seems like more Limbo; a puzzle platformer. A mysterious, unsettling story told wordlessly, featuring a young boy exploring a spooky environment. If you’re looking for more Limbo you’ll find it here, but Inside quickly begins surprising you with new ideas and beautiful animation. Over its 4-5 hour run time it moves swiftly from pleasant re-exploration of good ideas to an astonishing achievement and perhaps the best game of 2016.

Inside is available on Steam for Windows and on Xbox One for $19.99. (Expect ports to other platforms eventually.)
