"Inner Ashes is a showcase of talent in all its aspects. Its graphics are beautiful, as is its music and the symbolism it employs in its worlds. The sensitivity of its story and dialogue also do a great job of connecting with the emotions of anyone, whether they have experienced the disease or not." - 7/10 IGN Spain

"It's a memorable game that will take you on an emotional journey. The story of Henry and Enid is engaging and will drive you to play until the very end, and the gameplay will challenge you. Every element of the game came together to tell a moving story and also show what it's like to live with Alzheimer's. Inner Ashes is certainly one of those games you should consider playing." - 7.5/10 KeenGamer

"With a graphic display, especially in the dreamlike scenarios, a superb artistic design that reflects a mind that is losing its memories. As for the sound, we again feel the love and care in this title, with an excellent Spanish dubbing, which conveys emotions in each of the voice actors and all emphasised by melodies and themes that pierce your heart, especially in certain moments." - 7/10 Comuesp
