Vinty has been getting nowhere with her calligraphy. Her confidence has sunk to an all time low. As life pressures her toward giving up, will she forget why she pursued this craft in the first place?

Without Within is a ~4000 word visual novel that explores the creative mind. I produced this game as a way to say thank you for supporting my endeavors thus far. That is why I chose to publish a free version of Without Within. This free edition is already available! Just follow the link on top for your downloads.

Without Within is on Steam Greenlight at the moment and could use your support! Please consider dropping a vote:

Early next year, I will have a bigger project to announce. In the meantime, Without Within is my small Christmas gift for everyone. I hope you will enjoy Vinty's story.

Here are a few CGs from the game:

I have loved storytelling and game development all my life. In 2013, I began to produce titles under the InvertMouse name.

Thank you, and I hope to have your support as I venture into bigger projects in 2015.

I am running this campaign for two reasons. One, I want to offer physical rewards for those who kindly enjoyed the game. Two, I wish to develop an upgraded edition of the game that players may purchase. This package, named the Extra Edition, will include:

  • Printable "chase" cards with inspirational messages.
  • The soundtrack.
  • A digital artbook.
Here are the simple funds breakdown:

Costs for initial game: $0 (me)
Producing rewards: $100

Here are some preview images of the rewards this campaign offers. I very much hope you will like them!


The main game came from my personal funds. That is why these stretch goals are relatively high. Thank you for your understanding!

$1500: Three bonus Vinty comic strips in 4koma form. These will be done in black and white.

$1750: Colored versions of the aforementioned comic strips.

$2000: The above, plus a postcard of Vinty in an Unhack cosplay.

$2250: The above, plus a postcard of Vinty in a Bermuda cosplay.

$2500: The above with both aforementioned cosplay cards signed by illustrator Karla Featherstone.

$2750: A bonus postcard featuring a Vinty x Unhack illustration by Hybridmink. All $35 and above backers will receive one.

$3000: A bonus postcard featuring a Vinty x Bermuda illustration by Alastair Sew Hoy. All $35 and above backers will receive one.

Risks and challenges

I have a portfolio of games to demonstrate my ability to manage a project from start to finish. Budget often goes over and I will be there to provide support as needed. Thank you for your consideration.
