This week's clips are taken from Final Fantasy XII, Overwatch and the special cast of INSIDE for Spooky Sunday. But before we fully jump into the highlights I have to discuss this game in a spoiler free way!
'Hunted and alone, a boy finds himself drawn into the center of a dark project.'

The lighting? Incredible. I enjoyed the level design and use of color/contrast within each area. The story had a great twist and I was consistently engaged. INSIDE is dark and it doesn't shy away from that fact, both in the game's atmosphere and during interactions with enemies.
Some levels had a gritty feel which led to almost a palpable sense of relief upon reaching scenes with sunlight. Even though you could see the warm golden light outside, it still didn't bring a sense of comfort. The whole entire game? I felt uneasy.
Plus the music was great! It literally melded directly into the game at certain points and the subtle soundtrack complimented the environment without being overpowering or distracting from the overall experience.
Special thanks to PlayDead! I appreciate you gifting me the copy of the game for both review and streaming purposes. (Like I said several times on cast, platformers aren't my strength when it comes to gaming so I was stretching my comfort zones here.)
From a person who steers more towards story driven titles and shooters, I thoroughly enjoyed every thrilling moment of INSIDE and I definitely recommend it to anyone who loves side scrollers & puzzles with a hint of mystery.
This game definitely kept me guessing and our chat was stunned at the ending.
