PLAYMIND announced the third-person psychological horror game The InnerFriend will come out for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
Set to come out in September, The InnerFriend “unlocks the doorway to the subconscious, inviting players to conquer their childhood fears in an emotional and narrative-driven experience to save the child within from nightmares come to life.”
Atmosphere plays a big role in the title, creating tension and telling a unique story about seeing the world through the eyes of an innocent child. Inspirations include the works of psychologist Carl Jung, 80s horror pop culture like Poltergeist, the concept of katabasis (the descent into one’s own self), and the filmography of Stanley Kubrick.
According to Emmanuel Sévigny, founder of PLAYMIND:[testimonials user=” email=” name=” position=” photo=”]“The idea for The InnerFriend has been in my head for decades now so I’m thrilled to see it finally coming to life. Although we’ve all had very different pasts and childhoods, our experiences — particularly our fears and nightmares — are actually quite similar in a way. I’m eager to see how The InnerFriend will resonate with people from different backgrounds once they finally get a chance to check out the game for themselves.”[/testimonials]
