The Inner World - The Last Wind Monk (PC-Steam)

Developed by Studio Fizbin, The Inner World – The Last Wind Monk is available now on PC (Steam) for £18.99 (currently with a special offer until the 27th October at £16.14), on PS4 for £24.99 and Xbox One for £23.99.

The Inner World – The Last Wind Monk is an adventure/exploration, point and click sequel to “The Inner World” which thankfully doesn’t require you to have played the first game in order to fully enjoy it, although now that I’ve played The Inner World – The Last Wind Monk I am tempted to go and play “The Inner World” as well!

The chapters are all set in different locations and are beautifully designed with vibrant colours and smooth animation. I love the fact that The Inner World – The Last Wind Monk runs absolutely wonderfully on my very average laptop, there is absolutely no need for a gaming PC (although I’m sure it wouldn’t hurt!). I haven’t suffered from any issues whatsoever, the frame rate has been flawless and not a single crash!

The music in The Inner World – The Last Wind Monk is enchanting and I really enjoyed listening to it. Sound effects and ambient noises have also been taken care of, even if you’re trying to interact with something that is totally useless.

All of the characters have unique voices and the voice actors have done such a fantastic job at making their characters personable and some of them are actually quite funny which was a nice touch. I even found myself wanting to speak to all of the people I came across to see what they had to say.  Of course, there are subtitles but it really pleases me when characters are properly voiced as well, it really adds to the overall quality of the game, in my opinion.

As always, I’ll endeavour to avoid spoilers throughout my review.

Set in Asposia, something has gone terribly wrong. Someone has led the Asponsians astray, spreading propaganda and putting all the flute-noses into prison! There is ultimately only one person (with a little help) who will be able to restore normality and peace to Asposia. As you progress through the game you will play the characters “Robert”, “Laura” and a cute little pigeon called “Peck” (my favourite!).

There are 6 chapters in total and you are told the story of what has happened so far and what still needs to be done. In order to complete each chapter, you will need to complete a series of puzzles, some more elaborate and complex than others. It could be something simple like picking up an object and using it on something else or it could need you to swap to your trusty pigeon pal to fly up high and retrieve something for you, or even go into another area… I never felt like I was constantly doing the same thing which I was glad of because you do get games where sometimes you feel like you’re doing the same thing on repeat. Thankfully, if you do get stuck (something that happened to me quite frequently!) there is a helpful hint option which will give you clues in stages, each one becoming more and more detailed until you unlock the final clue which essentially spells it out for you.

I wholeheartedly fell in love with the story of The Inner World – The Last Wind Monk, it shows the consequences of hatred, prejudice and discrimination and ends on such a positive note, teaching equality, friendship and acceptance of everyone’s individualities and differences.

Overall, I’ve had such a great time playing The Inner World – The Last Wind Monk and if I had to give it a score it would be 9/10. Definitely worth getting, especially on Steam whilst it’s on offer, you won’t regret it!

The Inner World – The Last Wind Monk has a total of 25 steam achievements. For the most part, they are progression based and will be unlocked through natural gameplay. There are a few which will require some forethought and on my part, another playthrough (completing the game without using any hints!) but that is definitely not a negative thing in this case!
