Description: The game places emphasis on the chemistry behind human emotion, greatly inspired by the Pixar/Disney movie “Inside Out” and (more scientifically) Lövheim’s theory of emotions. On the gameplay side, we take the best from our experiences developing the games InMind and InCell, to create an innovative and eye-catching VR experience.

It is well known by scientists that emotions are nothing other than hormones affecting the human body — and especially the brain. You’ll take part in the process of one teenager named John becoming an adult, and help shape John’s future self, while experiencing an exciting journey inside the human brain. During this crucial time, John will face several key moments, and his reaction to these moments may lead to forming new interests and relations. Help John on his way towards his destiny… His future is in your hands!

Review: The original InMind VR game was one of the main apps that made people not only fall in love with VR but also want to develop for it. Sadly the same can’t be said for the follow-up. I just feel things have come so far since the original was produced that part 2 feels a little over the top and not as good as many other educational VR apps that are out there. Sadly this app is far too buggy and most people can’t even play it let alone rate it! Then there is the fact that in app purchases come up as normal screen boxes meaning you have to take it out of your headset and mess around for 5 minutes to buy the full version and the free version ads seem to lock up the phone to the point that you need to hard restart it just to get back to normal! Maybe it’s just me with too many fond memories of the original, but this simply isn’t what I expected from the Nival.

Having said all that, if you are willing to sit through those problems, pay for the full version and you have one of the few phones this app works on then you are in for a treat for the eyes all wrapped in an educational blanket of discovery. Sadly that is all played via a set of missions that are all essentially the same thing over and over. And don’t even start me on the weird storylines that little John seems to go through, that is a whole different ball of confusion!
