Then puzzle-platformer game Inside comes from indie developer/publisher Playdead and is about a boy wandering in a dystopian world. As a spiritual successor to Limbo from 2010, it adapts a 2.5D gameplay for immersive experience.

Despite belonging to a side-scrolling puzzle genre, elements of the game are designed to give away a horror movie vibe at times. Inside has won in "Best Art Direction" and "Best Independent Game" category at The Game Awards 2016.
