Jenny introduced us to this game called Inside. The premise shows a nameless red-shirt wearing boy, working through environments through the use of a mind-control helmet to solve puzzles by controlling lifeless grey bodies.
The game is quite interesting- and the actual ideation behind the plot really challenges the mind. It relies on the imagination- the game creates a lot of plot holes and gaps- using our imagination to fill in the spots, questioning what is really going on.
I really think this is something similar to what we want to apply in our own animation-the idea of the decent into craziness- questioning what is going on in our scene ourselves.

I really like the colour scheme in this game- the colours are simple and blocked- not lots of texture.
Some of the stills from the game which inspired our animation- the mysterious search lights in the fog and the running through the crops.
