Mental Resilience Made Epic

Welcome to the In-Between

Described as Lifeline meets Lord of the Rings, Betwixt is an epic smartphone adventure that helps you make sense of yourself.

As the story's protagonist, you find yourself trapped in the In-Between — a strange, magical world that responds to your emotions and makes real what you think. Your mission is to escape, but in order to do so, you will have to face yourself.
