1 min read

The 2019 Game Developers Conference is quickly approaching, and our client Playmind is already turning heads and taking home awards for their psychological horror adventure, The InnerFriend!

The organizers of GDC 2019 have announced that Playmind’s The InnerFriend — available on Windows PC and coming soon to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One — is  one of the honored recipients of this year’s Best in Play award. Joining seven other winning independent games, The InnerFriend was selected by a panel of veteran GDC organizers. As a winning developer, Playmind will be at GDC in Booth #N3116 on the GDC Play floor, giving demos of The InnerFriend.

About The InnerFriend:

Inspired by the works of psychologist Carl Jung and the filmography of Stanley Kubrick, The InnerFriend is a third-person psychological horror adventure game that dives deep into the subconscious to unearth gruesome beings materialized from mental anguish. The narrative — which contains no dialogue or text — heavily plays on childhood fears, exploring complex emotional themes and the psychology surrounding coping mechanisms to overcome traumatic experiences early in life.
