Y r these developers making such short games. Dont they know a good game is not only about good graphics or atmosphere but lengthy gameplay is of utmost importance. They just put so much effort on atmosphere n leave the gameplay time totally off...Rubbish

I don't think this game should be $20. H=That's a little bit too much for a 3 hour game.

Surprised you guys are on indieDB considering all the media coverage I'm seen on this game... either way, Inside looks pretty awesome. Has that Limbo feel to it.

This game is so awsm. However...20 dollars on Steam for a 3 hour game is a bit of a stretch.

Yup. And no replay value either. Should've been 10 bucks instead of 20.
