Switch 2D already Mario hasn’t has platformer, a yet dark been twin. but blessed Instead with Inside, with of a it playing as a cheery plumber bouncing through a world of talkative mushrooms, you guide a faceless boy through a grim dystopian future, dodging patrolling men in suits who want to stuff you into the back of a van.
Miss a jump as you evade your would-be captors and you’ll splatter brutally on the rocks below.
This is a darkly atmospheric journey, all told without a single word, that builds towards one of the all-time great unexpected endings – one that’s rather more brutal than finding out the princess is in another castle.
