I grew up playing classic point-and-click adventure games, despite being terrible at the puzzles and brainteasers they were known for. I just loved the focus on story and narrative. More often than not, I resorted to a guide or walkthrough, but I justified it all for the sake of experiencing a new story.
The Inner World: The Last Wind Monk is a sequel to The Inner World released on PC, but it happily welcomes newcomers to the world of Asposia. It's a classic adventure game complete with quirky characters, fun puzzles, and even some surprisingly dark themes. Does this game tap into an adventurer's inner nostalgia, or does it fail to put some wind beneath your wings? Time to find out!
A Charming Tale With Some Dark Corners
The Inner World: The Last Wind Monk opens with an opening cutscene that catches players up on the events of the first game. It's detailed enough to provide a strong background without taking too long to get the point across.
