Critically acclaimed PC platformer/puzzler coming soon to Xbox One
Who says platforming games can’t be sophisticated and emotional, while also being enjoyable and challenging? Critically acclaimed puzzle platformer “In Between”, developed by gentlymad, offers a unique experience as players are invited to reflect on the life of a man dying of cancer, discovering his story and living through his inevitable struggle for existence, while “playing” through a platform/physics game that reflects his emotional state. Coming soon for Xbox One, In Between will challenge players on both a gameplay and emotional level.
