Inside Woman

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , — inky @ 10:36 pm

I wrote up a review of Inside Woman in the usual place. Summary: pretty typical Andy Phillips game, but the puzzle quality seems higher than usual and there are a few unusual themes.

For people who are playing and get stuck, here are a few nudges (in rot13):

In general, if you’re stuck and you’re by water or mud or piles of rocks or something, try searching them.

1. If you’re stuck in the airlock at the beginning, gel chggvat fbzrguvat va fbzrguvat. Gura fbzrguvat ryfr va fbzrguvat ryfr.

2. If you need money, lbh unir gb fcraq zbarl gb znxr zbarl. Ohg nyy lbh pna nssbeq vf gur onq fghss.

3. If you want to use a cyberjack, jbex ba trggvat fbzr zbarl svefg.

4. If you want to help a baby, zbaxrl frr, zbaxrl qb.

5. If you need to get something out a window, gel pnyyvat vg na “bcravat”.

6. If you’re getting killed by poison gas, vs lbh jnag na vgrz, gel trggvat vg.

7. If you’re not making it through the church service, gel uvqvat.

8. If you can’t win the lucky dip, nffhzr lbh pna’g svaq gur onyy lbh jnag; purng.

9. If you can’t get into the movie studio, fbyir gur tnzrf yriry svefg.

10. If you have a pentagonal cyberjack, ybbx sbe gur cragntba.

11. If you’re being choked to death, gur unaqyr’f pybfr rabhtu gb ernpu.

Good luck!


  1. Congrats on finishing this game inky, I’m stuck! Of all the hints you’ve put up there’s only no.9, getting into the studio that applies to where I am, so let me ask:

    Vf gurer zber gb gur tnzrf yriry guna trggvat gbc fpber (4000) ba gur ovxr, naq vf gurer zber gb gur pnfvab guna trggvat gur vasbezngvba sebz gur obff?

    There just doesn’t seem to be anything to do there so I think I’m missing an important event or object.

  2. No, that should be all you need to do there. For me, jura V tbg gur qngn va plorefcnpr, gur tngrf unq bcrarq ba gur fghqvb yriry. Vs gung’f abg gur pnfr sbe lbh, gel fbyivat gur ntevphygheny yriry svefg (yriry gjryir, V guvax), naq gura purpx gur fghqvb ntnva.

  3. I can’t solve that level! I keep getting told –

    V fnj lbhe anzrgnt, naq abj V’z frrvat oyhr.

    So I was hoping that something at the studio was keeping me from solving it as I’ve been stuck there for a couple of weeks now.

    Qb V unir gur yvtug/grzc frggvatf jebat be vf vg zl jevfgjngpu juvpu vf fubjvat va gur ybpxre? V hfhnyyl gel 310 ohg abg fher jung jniryratgu gb chg, abguvat frrzf gb jbex.

  4. Yeah, you can solve that level without needing things from elsewhere.

    Gur “oyhr” qbrf ersre gb lbhe jevfgjngpu, fb lbh’yy arrq gb frg gur jniryratgu fb fur pna’g frr vg. Abgr gung gur qvfcynl ba gur jniryratgu qvny fubjf gur jniryratgu bs gur pheerag yvtug va gur ebbz — abg whfg jung gur qvny vgfrys vf frg gb.

  5. As an aside, the Game level is one of the best feelies in IW.

    I’m a little disappointed that V bireybbxrq qevivat guebhtu gur jvaqbj “Snfgrfg Tha va gur Rnfg” orpnhfr lbh pbhyq trg vasvavgr cbvagf ol ehaavat bire thneqf ercrngrqyl. Nsgre ernqvat gur uvag, V jrag onpx naq orng vg va bar ybat frdhrapr.
