The Beast Inside is a unique, gripping twist on thriller and survival horror. The game mixes intriguing story-driven adventure with unnerving survival horror experience. Immerse in the tale of long-buried secrets, personal tragedies, and madness. Play as two protagonists living in different centuries but bounded by dark heritage. Boston, 1979, Adam, the CIA cryptanalyst, leaves the city and moves to the countryside with his wife, Emma. His handlers are afraid they won’t be able to keep him safe there, but Adam believes he needs a peaceful place in the woodland, to take a shot at the military code. His work may alter the course of the Cold War. As it turns out, this area is quite the opposite of a peaceful place they have expected... In the attic Adam finds a mysterious diary written by a man called Nicolas Hyde, allegedly, a past resident of the same house who lived there in the 19th Century. Once opened, the diary carries the nightmares of the past right into Adam’s times, putting the lives of Adam and Emma in great danger. Density increases as these two stories come to an inevitable crash. Distant past and his eternal prisoner - Nicolas against Adam, cryptanalyst from the Cold War. What can it lead to? In tangled times, who will you trust?

The Beast Inside | ★★★★☆
I played the demo of it while it was still in Early Access.
Basing my experience on that; It was just an average horror puzzle game that relies on jump scares. Which put me on a low expectation mindset before playing it (full), and also mainly because of how cheap it is (90% off).
Then after I finished it in three days: I would have boldly assumed that this is not an Indie game if I didn't know anything about it. Game Direction, Voice Acting, Puzzle and Writing that could be easily par with Triple A titles if it's somehow has a bit more budget.
A great work by Illusion Ray Studio that makes me curious and enthusiastic about their next project.

Review from Steam

I don´t know how I should rate it.
On the one hand it´s a brilliant game with a really interesting storyline.
It has a great dark atmosphere and easy but still good puzzles for a horror game.
The sounds fit too and a few jumpscares got me xD
But on the other hand there are some huge issues with the controls and the performance.
The loading screen feels like forever.
It was laggy at the worst moments when you were being chased or had to fight.
Cutscenes that just destroy the feeling and unnecessarily prolong fight scenes.
The controls were often too slow and frustrating.
I still had fun with The Beast Inside.
So I would say it´s worth buying when you really like horror games and it´s on sale.

Review from Steam

Bought a copy of this game for €2. Not a bad game. Has a couple of bugs here and there but overall it's not bad. Story is kinda interesting.
I'd recommend picking up on a deep sale if you're interested in psychological horror games.
There is feck all exploration, I just ran through the game as I wanted to know the story.
Make sure to make a back up of your saves on the final chapter, if you want to do the other endings, as the game automatically deletes your gavesave files upon completion of the game.
If you forget to make a backup; refer to this link for game save files.

Review from Steam

The Beast Inside is a remarkable survival horror (an open world walking simulator with some puzzles, and a dash of stealth and QTE).
The atmosphere is outstanding, both for its quite good graphics and for its magnificent soundtrack. In addition, it has some amazing jump scares and, most importantly, a story told in a very attractive way that hooks you from the beginning.
In short, I would say that it is a much better game than I expected.
Highly recommended if you like the genre.

Review from Steam

This isn't a game, this is a masterpiece!
Pure horror till the end, it has puzzles, the story is brilliant and so many things about The Beast Inside.
Ohh I really loved it.
This game is not for everyone at all, great thriller the story twist your mind since you go back in time centuries and it has so many secrets.
So this is the mainly reason it has 4 endings, it's up to you to choose which one you felt more comfortable with.
I highly recommend this game for people that aren't afraid of horror, loves thrillers, murders, puzzles and above all have a brain and it's capable of thinking.
The Beast Inside 10/10
Every human being is capable of committing acts of great cruelty.
Lack of trust in other people increases the need for religion.
You catch these killers by getting into their heads, but you also allow them into your own.
Humans emotions are a gift from our animal ancestors, cruelty is a gift humanity has given itself.
Folie à deux.
