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…?

Features, Features, Features! This is where The Inner World shows what it means to be lavishly with tons of content waiting for you: Screamingly funny dialogues! Numerous tricky puzzles! A handmade world fully drawn with love and devotion invites you to discover countless details (at least 325!). A patented multi-level hint system enables everyone to finish the game! A wonderful comforting atmosphere! Eye-pampering backgrounds in non-stereoscopic handmade 2D (!) – going up against all current graphic trends! Five spectacular chapters! A story with more twists than any Asposian nose! Stunning cartoon-like animations! The most epic soundtrack since the origin of Asposia as well as professional voice overs – even lip sync! Lots of cut scenes! Optional hotspots! And of course: Robert, the very-very-very-VERY-last hope for Asposia!

-- Texts and voice-overs 100% in English (and German) --
-- Full game, no In-App-Purchases --
-- Tablet support --

I encountered a bug in the first level that stopped me from progressing through the game. Contacted the developer for help and still haven't heard from them.

This game had a strong plot which held my interest. I couldnt wait to get to the end to find out what happens. I had zero bugs or glitches as others have reported. Problem solving in the first couple of levels was fun but I found subsequent levels incredibly frustrating because many problems are completely illogical. There wasn't any reasonable or intuitive way to solve the puzzles, it becomes mindless trial and error. The solution to some problems are so unintuitive that I felt I was wasting my time trying to think them through and I fully relied on the hints for more than half of the game. I also found it frustrating to backtrack between scenes. Rather than having a progressive flow through rooms or scenes, you have to backtrack to pick something up - not because you missed it but because something random such as a conversation triggers eg. A wall to crumble which creates dust you need to return to retrieve. For those interested, this game does not pass the bechedel test. I found this mildly annoying, but noticable enough to add to my review. + The character Laura is cool but "bitchy".. hmmm. I rated 3/5 for plot interest and novelty but it is frankly quite frustrating to play because it is so illogical. Would not have purchased had I known this in advance.

There's no animations on Huawei Mate 10 Pro, just a black screen. The black screen appears each time before loading screens too. Thankfully I can play it on old tablet.

The animations are superb and it's a joy to watch every character. Voice acting is very good. Story is simple and sweet. This is the best point and click I've played so far.

Hey dev. Im having a trouble at the start of the game. The screen went black at the beginning and I skip the first scene which is an important part of the story. It keeps happening after I hit the pigeon with a slingshot. I just found out what really happened after that when I talk to the lady with her baby that the girl grabbed the bird or whatever happend. Idk, it just spoil the whole story now. Please if you read this can you help me?? Great game btw

Glitches and skips through the whole game. Restarted so many times the game became a waste of time. I should have saved that 99c for the homeless guy siren the street. Would have been more useful

I really want to like the game. Sadly, there are quite a few bugs: 1) The animations doesn't seemed to play at all. 2) The game sometimes just freezes when I want to talk to someone. I really hope the bugs can be fixed.

A cute game with game ending bugs. I purchased the game and it was an enjoyable enough point and click. However, halfway through, an item disappeared and it was impossible to continue. I had no interest to restart it and uninstalled it. Seems like different people are experiencing bugs at different locations in the game. Unfortunately, it's not possible to have more than one save for each playthrough so a bug will require starting from scratch.

This game is broken. Cut scene videos do not work on certain devices. Worst of all I queried the issue with the developer and have had no response. I'll stick to Steam from now on for adventure game purchasing.
