The Past Within is an unusual puzzle game that is similar to the previous projects of Rusty Lake. Only this time you have to team up with another player to reach the final. Note that you will not be able to go through the game alone, since developers created it for co-op. The Past Within supports cross-platform, so it does not matter what device you play on – smartphone, tablet or PC. The essence of the project is that you need to constantly talk and note what you see on the screen, since both players are in parallel worlds – in the future and the past. The passage will take about 2 hours, as the game itself consists of two chapters. The developers recommend replaying the game to find other puzzle solutions and new sensations from the plot.

Embark on a co-op time-lapse adventure. One will move through the past, and the second through the future, observing and reporting on all the strange things that happen around the ward.
Unique gaming experience
Starting to pass The Past Within, you will encounter strange events that you just have to deal with as you progress through the game. You have to solve puzzles that are organically integrated into the gameplay. Solve numerous riddles and carefully monitor the environment. Look for items in it that are mostly key, and not only. At the same time, the entire gameplay offers screensavers and comments that can help you to understand what is really happening and how all the events are connected to each other.
Solve the puzzle only together
In cooperative mode, both participants will interact with each other and provide the information obtained. Together with a partner, you have to travel through the past and the future, encountering unusual events and unraveling the necessary secrets. Users need to report what they see around them, help an ally. Gamers navigate through several worlds with different designs and increasingly difficult puzzles. The study of temporary places will occur from different points of view.
The main weapon of gamers is attentiveness and ingenuity. One player observes events in the past tense, while the other looks into the future. At the same time, both heroes look at the same location, comparing or noticing the differences. It is the comparison of two times that allows you to find the key to solving the problem and compose a complete story.
Graphics and Sound
The 2D part of The Past Within features an unusual comic book style known from previous games from the Rusty Lake series. On the other hand, the 3D part looks more realistic. It is worth noting that this is the first game from this brand with a three-dimensional graphic design.
The Past Within is an adventure connected with the interaction of the past, which will help unravel the mysterious incidents and murders. Main character will visit different time and space points and there will be an observer of everything from several points of view. You have to cooperate and continue the legacy of Albert Wonderboom.
This time the game turned out to be more like The Room than Rusty Lake. A little bit of interactive in one room, but more of a game with one intricate box full of secrets all around. We liked the puzzles, but they are quite simple here, which is not typical for this series. Apparently, an adjustment focuses on the fact that it is necessary to explain to the partner. I It will be more interesting to play together.
As planned by the authors, The Past Within is exactly how players need to play it. One player in the past, the other in the future, each with their own game (not necessarily on Android, any platform will do). Players are constantly exchanging information – you will not get far on your own. However, you can also play alone – by running two instances of the game at once on one screen. Since the action takes place simultaneously in the past or in the future and never at the same time, it is also convenient to play solo.
The Past Within offers a very intriguing denouement, strange events and tasks that are not so easy to cope with. Show maximum ingenuity and ingenuity, and then you will be able to find the underlying cause of the truth. An excellent point-and-click game that will take you into the world of Albert Wonderboom’s secrets. He died under very strange and mysterious circumstances, and now you have to find out many details.
