I played the demo of INSIDE initially and was immediately astounded at how atmospheric the game was. This was after playing only a few minutes of gameplay.

The graphical style is dark throughout but well-defined and moves along really smoothly. The animations are truly amazing and the sound effects perfectly complement the graphics style. It's worth turning up the volume, especially low frequencies!! Later on in the game they make for an awe inspiring experience.

What I really love about INSIDE is the design of the game. So many "Puzzle Platformers" try to increase apparent content by using puzzles requiring repetition or forcing the player to revisit earlier areas. There is none of that in INSIDE. The game evolves nicely into unique undefined sections, the gameplay never becomes stale or repetitive.

Some may say the downside of this is a fairly short completion time, it should take around three hours or so. I'd MUCH prefer to have three+ hours of quality, non-repetitive, intriguing gameplay than rehashed puzzles/zone/etc padding it out into six or seven hours of frustrating boredom!

I've had the game only a few days and nearly completed a second playthrough. It's such an enjoyable experience to replay, this is the genius of the design.

The puzzles aren't pitched at a high difficulty level, they're just right to be enjoyable and not to have to resort to searching the interweb for solutions.

The game never explains itself, I really enjoy this ambiguity. When the game ended, I felt it was right. It feels like a work of art, not just due to how it presents itself visually but the emotion it leaves you with at the end.

This could possibly be my GOTY 2016. I need more time for everything to really sink in. It is though, without doubt a masterpiece!
