The Inner World: Who, what and why?

The idea of The Inner World was born in the seminar of the study course “Interactive Media” on the renowned Institution for Animation of the filmacademy Baden-Wuerttemberg and the Weingarten college. A group of students designed the charac-ters, an overall design, and the storyline. When it was put to breathe life into the first concepts and add more content, numerous students were on the spot to help vitally advancing the world of Asposia – the game’s setting.

In the end the development of a prototype of this game turned into the final exam oft the three students Sebastian Mittag (director), Mareike Ottrand (Design), and Alexan-der Pieper (coding). After passing the finals of the studies they decided to found the Indie Studio Fizbin. Shortly after, the team was provided with advancements from the Digital Content Funds of the MFG Baden-Wuerttemberg to continue and finish the pro-ject. The promising work of Studio Fizbin led them to be nominated for the category “Best Up-and-Coming Concept” for the German Computer Game Prize.


We know extraterrestrial, we know subterrestrial… but now we got in-nerterrestrial!

The Inner World takes place in “Asposia”, a world that – in contrary to all laws of physics – is located in an enormous hollow space. “Asposia” is surrounded by endless soil, and ventilated solely through three big wind fountains. When suddenly one foun-tain after another runs dry and the Windgods befall Asposia the players find them-selves in the role of Robert, a naive and cheerful novice, in the center of unexpected events. With the mysterious thief Laura, best intentions and not the slightest clue Robert hits the road to solve the secret behind the disappearance of the winds.

The game is a fabulously twisted 2D Point-and-Click-Adventure where players come across quirky and outstandingly animated characters, and have to solve challenging puzzles and follow the humorously story.

Meridian4 Expands Partnership with HeadUp Games

Montreal, Quebec, Canada – August 9, 2012 – Meridian4 (@Meridian4) today announced that they are bringing two brand new titles to North America as part of their publishing agreement with Headup Games: role-playing strategy game, Holy Avatar vs. Maidens of the Dead and point-and-click adventure, The Inner World. Both titles will be making their debut at Gamescom next week at the Headup Games booth, located in Hall 4.1, Booth C-061.

• Holy Avatar vs. Maidens of the Dead (PC): A spin-off from the Grotesque Tactics franchise, this role-playing strategy game follows Holy Avatar, who has decided to grab some R&R with his Guild of Maidens on a tropical island he has purchased. Upon arrival, a gruesome discovery is made – a slew of brutally murdered and horribly mutilated maidens. Holy Avatar must investigate what happened on the island, which brings a myriad of new adventures, dangers and the occasional zombie threat.

• The Inner World (PC, Mac, iOS): is a wonderfully twisted point-and-click adventure game that takes place in Asposia, a land that defies all laws of physics by existing in an enormous hollow space. Asposia is surrounded by rich soil and ventilated solely through three large wind fountains. When the fountains start running dry, it is up to cheerful yet naïve resident, Robert, to solve the mystery behind the wind’s disappearance.

“We are excited to continue our partnership with Headup Games to bring both The Inner World and Holy Avatar vs. Maidens of the Dead to North America, and look forward to debuting both titles at Gamescom next week,” said Steve Milburn, Marketing Director at Meridian4. “Both games put a humorous spin on their respective genres and deliver an entertaining, challenging gaming experience that players can appreciate.”



It's great to hear we have a North American publisher!
