A downloadable game for Windows

Between the Worlds is A Miniature MetroidVannia heavily inspired by "The Stanley Parable" made in 10 days for the 2018 Movie Game Jam. Like any Metroidvannia you have to find your way to your goal while growing stronger through a multitude of upgrades. 

(NOTE: To get to the other areas throw the floo powder into fire and walk through it as in this scene from Sorcerrers stone: .youtube.com/watch?v=jm6ROBZe-PM)

Edit: We made an update to the game after the jamYou can still download the jam-version of course, but the new version features an ingame-menu and the ability to invert the mouse.

Don't forget to rate the game for the GameJam! This is an entry for the MovieGameJam and we still need votes!

About the premade assets

We made 95% of the assets during the jam, but some assets were impossible to do during the jam. But we tried as much as we could! (SFX-Guy here: My keyboard is now full of sand. Tip: Never record steps in sand on your desk...)

We used these premade assets:

Thanks you for Playing!

That's all i have to say

Thank you!


That's all i have to say


Cool game and nicely made. A good job on this and fun to play... :)

Why Thank You! After watching you play you seem to have played EXACTLY how we thought a player would play with no major alterations! Take of that what you will, but hopefully that means you had the optimal experience! If you enjoyed it could you please leave a rating on the movie game jam entry page?  https://itch.io/jam/moviegamejam/rate/220990


Couple nit pick things. Such as the game starts before i'm ready and, I didn't get to hear atleast 4 lines of narration. I know it's not that big of a deal because it's all chit chat but, still... There is also no option to change resolution or, settings on any menu. Plus I was a little lost with out any clear direction of a goal.  The game has a good concept i'm not bashing it just felt rushed out the gate with what I had to do!

Thank you for your feedback! Yes, you are right! We didn't have time to make a menu. I am sorry, that you got stuck! You had to walk through the fire to travel in the next world (You've probably only seen about 20% of the game yet, the main part isn't in the screenshots to not spoil the player).

Hi Game Designer here! I updated the description from your feedback. Thank you for trying out our game! If you do have any interest I would implore you to boot the game up again, and walk through the fire. (What happens is a just a little surprising ;)


I thought this was just awesome to the point where I have played it a couple of times. Well done DEVS

Thank you a lot! That means a lot to us! Really? Another Let's Player? Man, I am supposed to be working on the trailer for the game right now and not watch videos all day! 


Let me know when you've done the trailer and i'll have a watch for you.

Totally awesome game and I can't think of any improvements except for a trailer.


Hi Game Designer here, Thank you for playing our game I watched the playthrough and learned quite a bit on what we could improve on! It means a lot to me that someone would play it several times! (especially since it was a headache making all four potential paths work with the Narrator XD) If you enjoyed it it would mean a lot to have our game rated for the movie game jam here: https://itch.io/jam/moviegamejam/rate/220990

Also we made the 58 second trailer if you want to see below! 


I don't think the narrator likes me. But he's probably just upset things got off-script. :)

PS For anyone watching, please consider subscribing for a copious amounts of indie games. :)

Sorry for the late reply! Thank you for playing our game it means a lot! 12:56 made me laugh! and I apologize for not adding a nearer spawn point on 13:38. I forgot... But thank you again and if you have time any rating would mean a lot to us if you enjoyed the game! : https://itch.io/jam/moviegamejam/rate/220990
