Thank you for sharing your playthrough and for the kind words. We're glad you enjoyed Within.
What a great story driven game! The voice acting was spot on, the graphics looked great and it was beyond spooky! Can't wait to try the other games. Keep up the frightening work!!

An amazing Game! Great Story, and play through!
Hey there, thanks for your kind words and sharing your video; that's an extremely cute cat in the thumbnail 🙂

Very Good Story Line , Good Controls, Nice Execution Great Job Thanks For The Scares.
Great game and very good voice acting! Keep up the good job! :)
Absolutely banger of a game! I enjoyed playing it, and it got me a few times! Great story, wonderful atmosphere, and top-notch voice acting. Keep up the good work, I can't wait to see what's next!
Thank you for your kind words and for sharing your video. We're glad you enjoyed Within.
I WOULD PAY 3 BOOLEAN FOR THIS
The storyline of this was so unique I loved it
I had a blast playing within! I love story driven games with tons of details that immerse you into the world. Though only spending roughly 40 minutes with these characters, I felt invested in their story and sibling companionship. Causing me to find the ending quite emotional haha. After playing I was shocked that this was a free to play game! So glad I played. Keep up the good work!
The end would have been perfect to show that Christ can save us from anything. Nonetheless, still a really solid horror game
Glad you liked Within. That's a great thought. We're believers ourselves, which is why the themes of grace, redemption, and notions of eternity run through our games.
This game takes me on a ride~ 10 outta 10!
Thank you for playing Within and sharing your play-through. It was fun to watch. 🙂
hi, great stuff :)
i have two questions:
1. how i can get the game soundtrack ?
2. what precisely are this old engravings / sketches / scrolls which we find in the sub-game ? did you draw them yourself ?
hi there, thanks for reaching out. Please write us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll be happy to hook you up with the soundtrack and more information about the game's art. We also have a "Making of" article in the works, where we'll go into greater detail about our development journey on Within.
after I press the new game button it gets stuck on a black screen.. the same thing happens when I press on credits. not sure what I have to provide to troubleshoot this
update: when I press escape it opens the pause menu with the options: "skip-resume-quit to main menu"
I press skip and it starts the game so I'm guessing there's a cutscene that's missing
also when I press "exit" the game stops responding and then crashes although it's not that much of a problem
I'm gonna re-download the zip file perhaps the problem will be fixed after I re-extract
Thank you for reporting this. Your PC is not playing the cutscenes, likely due to a missing media library. Could you try again after installing a media player like VLC? Also, we will continue this troubleshooting thread over email. Please write to us at email@example.com
Interesting horror game. A horror game inside a horror game. Way too good to be free. Here's my gameplay.
That was *really* good. Maya's voiceactress was great, and the art on the collectables was superb.
I had a major problem though... headbob. If I can't turn off headbob, the motionsickness gets me. (I know, I'm old and lame). Please include that option in the future. It's hard for me to get through them otherwise.
hi there, thank you for playing Within and for your feedback. We will look at adding an option to disable headbob in a future update.
The story was the shining point for this game and the concept of having a game within a game was a nice surprise! If you like story-based horror, this short game will satisfy.
Thank you for playing Within and sharing your playthrough. Tracking bio-metrics is a cool way to play horror games 🙂 We're glad you liked the story.
I was not expecting the cutscenes, but was pleasantly surprised. Thank you for the game :)
Much like Nik says in the game, I'm normally not a huge fan of this style of game, but the overall design here was impressive, as well as the storytelling. Voice acting and sound design were also great. I'd love to see you guys do something a bit longer with some more varied gameplay elements incorporated into your stories; at this point you're definitely capable of going bigger and bigger, and I look forward to continue seeing your games evolve.
I loved the story concept and atmosphere of the game, it was so creepy. And my gosh, beautiful voice acting, great pacing, a thoroughly fantastic experience. It played like a modern Twilight Zone episode :D
Hello, thank you for playing our games and for your kind words. We're glad you enjoyed Within.
The game looks great! Hope we could collab on a future horror gaming project.
Super creepy game. The voice acting was very good as well. Keep up the great work!
Really fun stuff here. Had the hairs on the back of my neck raised the whole time. Even when I knew what was coming, it was enough to get me. Absolutely fantastic.
Really had a blast playing this game. It was the 1.0 version but man it checked all the boxes. I have played a lot of horror games too and certain parts still gave me chills.
