Holy Asposian! The Inner World now with the ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK as DLC & Bundle!

Not only we took a lot of time to create our world of Asposia graphically, we also spent a whole bunch to create a soundtrack fitting into the world as we would imagine, the atmospehre and music would be in Asposia.

We love the result, and apparently lot sof people love it, too. So we decided to make the OST officially available for everyone, who wants it.

If you still haven't played "The Inner World", you can also get a complete Bundle, including the full game with the mini-game "Flute Nose" and the OST.

Enjoy the music, enjoy the game, enjoy Asposia!

The Inner World – A 2D-Point’n’Click Adventure

Robert is a novice, a bit clueless, but with a heart of gold. He lives a peaceful life as a court musician in Asposia's largest wind monastery. Contrary to the laws of physics, Asposia is an enormous, hollow space surrounded by an infinite expanse of earth. The world's air is provided through three wind fountains, but as one wind fountain after the other petered out and the wind gods came to Asposia, all of the sudden Robert found him in the middle of a whirlwind.

Together with the help of the mysterious thief Laura, his best intentions and no clue whatsoever, Robert sets off on his adventure to discover the secret of the wind's disappearance. Will the young adventurer be able to save his world? And what are Laura´s secret intentions…?

I've played the first 2 deponia series and also Broken Age. Now onto the inner world and i found this game so much more enjoyable than the deponia series. I also preferred this game over broken age. Eventhough broken age has better graphics and illusration but I was more captivated in this game than broken age. I guess its cause broken age has more of a serious tone? Inner world was funnier and quirkier, therefore i never found any part of the game boring.

The storyline is good, i enjoyed clicking on all the speech bubbles to hear more about the story. Puzzles were logical and understandable not weird and random (unlike some other puzzle games where u randomly just put things together hoping it'll work) Illustration is simple yet attractive, alot of different scenes. The game lasted quite long hence i felt like it was value for money. Overall, if u like funny, cute adventure games with a cute storyline (and cute characters! e.g. gorf & tumblemouse!) then try out this game! i rly enjoyed it!!

It is quite fun to play in this extremely unique world that touts a wonderful storyline as well as a haunting soundtrack...
It was SO good, that I actually teared up at the end! #lmao (don't tell anybody!)

PUZZLES:
Challenging but quite fun and solavable. Some are quite abstract while others are straight forward...Esque.

HINTS:
The in-game hints are beyond helpful when you are stuck (but they get so specific after a few clicks that it kinda ruins the fun, so click once or twice but then solve it by your damn self! lol)

CONS:
THE DIAAAAAAAAALOOOOOOOGE TAAAAAAAKES FOOOOOREEEEVEEER and you HAVE to sit or 'click' through it to progress. In my opinion, there is too much dialogue but I clicked through it and, after awhile, it didn't both me at all.

UN-FUN FACT: When you get stuck, hearing the character tell you you are wrong EVERY.SINGLE.TIME. made me rage once and I had to stop playing for a cool minute.

FUN FACT: The voice of the lead 'Robert' sounds just like Rocco from, 'Rocco's Modern Life'

GREAT POINT & CLICK ADVENTURE PUZZLE GAME!! 4 out of 5 stars!! ^_^ <3

Clever riddles, endless humor and a setting that could move on to a sequel. If you love this kind of adventures jsut try it. Moreover, the fact that it gives you hints can help even a starter with riddles to finish it

Really nice little adventure game. Not a must play, but it's nicely animated with decent puzzles that are only occasionally obtuse. If you like the genre, it's worth a look.

As modern point and click adventure games go, this one is fairly decent. It's not a mind-blowing experience by any means, but it's definitely not bad either. You play as a guy named Robert who finds himself thrust into a quest to save the world (naturally). Robert is a very naive and unassuming sort of fella, so a lot of the plot and humor centers around his clueless innocence. The story and dialogue is fairly good for the most part, in turns charming, funny and dark. The voice acting is hit or miss, though - mostly it is decent, but a few lines here and there are inexplicably bad (wrong pronunciations, improper emphasis of words, etc). Mechanically, the game also has its ups and downs. Being a point and click game, you would think that the pointing and clicking would be spot-on, but that's not always the case. Sometimes you can't click on things that you should be able to click (though it usually fixes itself in a second or two). Additionally, half of the achievements don't seem to be working properly. However, the developers have started to release patches to fix some of these problems, so a lot of these things may not be issues in the future. Regardless, none of these faults are deal breakers by any means, anyways.

The puzzles are fairly standard in adventure game terms. You basically just go around talking to people, picking up objects, and using those objects (or combinations thereof) to solve puzzles and progress further. Thankfully, none of the solutions are overly ridiculous or unintuitive (as is the case with many adventure games), though you will need to really think some stuff through from time to time. Apparently there is also a help system in place if you need it (which I didn't even realize until after finishing the game), so you probably won't ever get stuck for long, if you even get stuck at all. The game is divided into 5 chapters, each of which consists of a self-contained series of puzzles that take place on 3 or 4 "screens". Playtime is probably around 7-8 hours or so, give or take. So keep that in mind in terms of how much you are willing to pay. All in all, the game is pretty good. As I said earlier, it is nothing mind-blowing for the genre, but it's a nice experience while it lasts. Probably the worst thing I could say about it (aside from the minor glitches noted above) is that the pacing is very slow. The dialogue in particular seems like it takes foreeeeeeeever sometimes, especially with a main character who is so low-key and slow. The pace may test your patience at times. But if you don't mind that and are into classic adventure games, this is probably worth a look at some point. I would probably recommend waiting for a sale, though, unless you are hardcore into adventure games and need something new to play now.
