Psychological Horror THE INNERFRIEND coming 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. The game explores complex emotional themes and the childhood psychology surrounding coping mechanisms used to overcome traumatic experiences.

Led by a mysterious Shadow, journey through a surreal world inspired by the psychology of childhood fears, like the fear of abandonment and the fear of hospitals, which manifest themselves as nightmares.

Dive into a subconscious universe to relive the Shadow’s childhood memories, collecting various artefacts to bring back to the Bedroom and slowly rebuilding it as a protective safe haven.

As you journey deeper into the subconscious, the gruesome materialised beings that inhabit this world draw ever closer as they fight to protect their very existence – imagined, yet quite powerfully manifested. Can you save the inner child and decipher the mystery?

Emmanuel Sévigny, founder of PLAYMIND, said of the game, “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.”

The InnerFriend will be coming this September for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
