Another review of In Between (Polish version)

Yet again, I was poking around over at RPG Kepos only to find that In Between has been reviewed again. It got a positively glowing review this time, no doubt thanks to the great layout and translation work done by the RPG Kepos team.

This time the review comes from Poltergeist, a Polish blog interested in all kinds of geeky things. The review scores were broken down into a number of different categories, but all of them came out as either 8 or 9 out of 10. I don’t have a lot to say about the review this time around. The reviewer didn’t really mention anything they didn’t like about the game for me to think about. Man, I hate it when they only have nice things to say!

It seems a common theme between this review and the last are that the mechanics for the game are really good. This is great news since back when I originally submitted In Between to Game Chef the main complaint was that the mechanics were weak. The game has come a long way since then and moved away from the Universalis-style bidding to something much different. The game still uses a power economy, but that economy is built within the confines of ritualized components and twisting narrative decisions. It is a much different beast from what it was two years ago.
