Inside (from creators of Limbo)

I searched and didn't find a thread...is anyone else excited about Inside? I really loved Limbo, but puzzle/platformers are very much in my wheelhouse. The Verge just gave Inside an excellent review:

Re: Inside (from creators of Limbo)

Review on Polygon says it's better than Limbo. I'm excited. Unfortunately, I have family visiting for a week starting Friday, so I'm not sure I'll be able to play it until they leave. It might be too violent in parts for the kids to watch me play it.

I really wish this was one of those Xbox Play Anywhere titles. I'd love to be able to play it on console and PC without buying it twice.

Re: Inside (from creators of Limbo)

I never got around to playing Limbo, but I probably should since I got it for free on both XBox and PC the other week. I just got a bunch of XBox credit from a raffle, I might go ahead and grab this.

Reviews overall are stellar - http://www.metacritic.com/game/xbox-one/inside

Re: Inside (from creators of Limbo)

It took a long time for Limbo to come to other platforms as well. It will get there, eventually.

Somehow I hadn't heard of this until a couple of days ago. I already have it downloaded and ready to go as soon as I can play it tomorrow. I'd be thrilled if it was even half as good as Limbo, so I'm pretty excited since reviews keep saying it goes beyond the previous game's brilliance.

Re: Inside (from creators of Limbo)

I never really got into LIMBO. I appreciated it on some level, but didn't really enjoy it.
I'll get this eventually but can wait for a sale.

Re: Inside (from creators of Limbo)

Doesn't release on Steam until July 7th, but I'll probably wait until a sale to get it even though I loved Limbo.

Re: Inside (from creators of Limbo)

For those waiting impatiently for the game to release, turns out Xbox has the wrong release time. They say 12am EST, but Playdead (developer) says 10am UTC (which is 6am EST)

Loved Limbo. Did anyone get the achievement for less than 5 deaths?

Re: Inside (from creators of Limbo)

just finished Inside. Took about 3-4 hrs. Seemed easier than Limbo. Do not play the last 1/4 of the game if you're stoned. Your head may explode.

Played for 2 achievements worth of this last night, it's a hell of a walking simulator! The art is fantastic, the atmosphere creepy as balls, and a very worthy Limbo followup, because let's be honest. It's the same type of game.

That sounds like additional effort I am not willing to engage in. If it takes more than grinding up some fresh herb, packing the vaporizer and getting a jug of water ready, I'm not having it.

Re: Inside (from creators of Limbo)

Not if this game was worth $20. $10 seems a better price considering the length.

I really don't want to have another game price vs length discussion but Inside was worth every penny.

Re: Inside (from creators of Limbo)

^ Seriously. What a ridiculous complaint. I can't wait to play this, and $20 is MORE than fair.

Re: Inside (from creators of Limbo)

Hey, I paid the $20 and it's a fun game. But for those who haven't purchased yet and are on the fence, I'd say wait for a price drop.

And, if you haven't played Limbo yet, do that first.

Re: Inside (from creators of Limbo)

Bought it on PC. I'm about 50% through, according to the "Load" screen.

Very creepy. I died three times right at the first 'puzzle.'
I love the atmospheric sounds. I can't tell if the score is non-existent or just ultra-minimal.

I'll probably finish it off tomorrow.
At $20, I feel like I've gotten $10 worth so far. I expect the second half to be about the same.

Only a couple of the puzzles have stumped me before realizing the obvious solution. I'm currently at the part where
Spoiler:
I'm gathering up a bunch of those guys I can control. I need 20 of them to stand on a platform, but I've only got about 8 or 9. I can't seem to figure out how to get to the one on the bottom level, to the left. There's a cage of some sort in the air, and one of those boxes that winds up and shoots upwards. When I stand on it, it doesn't go high enough for me to grab the cage. HMMM...

I just finished that section the other night. Definitely took a lot of time and thinking for me to figure all that out.
