About Before Your Eyes

About this game

Before Your Eyes is a first-person narrative adventure which tells the story of a soul’s journey into the afterlife using a new and innovative form of interaction—your real-life blinks.

The story begins after your death, aboard the ship of a mythical Ferryman tasked with shepherding souls to the afterlife. In order to help you pass on, he must first learn the story of your life. And so, he sends you back to relive your most important moments.

The game uses your webcam to immerse you in this story in a way you've never experienced before. You will learn to control the flow of the narrative with your actual eyes–blinking through precious memories of family, first love, and the rise of an artistic career. But soon the Ferryman will suspect you aren't showing him everything he needs to see. So he will force you deeper into the dark recesses of your most repressed memories, ultimately revealing a heartbreaking truth.

By combining its innovative blink interaction mechanic with a charming world and a fully voice-acted story, Before Your Eyes is a deeply emotional and relatable journey—one about the impossible expectations we place on ourselves and the regrets we carry with us.

An earlier version of the game, titled Close Your, received the Game Developers Choice award at Indiecade and the Student Award at the Independent Game Awards (IGF), before receiving funding through a successful Kickstarter campaign.

Interesting short story-driven game that uses your blinking eyes as input. Not much gameplay or replay value, but compelling mechanic and emotional story. Can be finished in one sitting.

Before your eyes is a game that comes from good idea with an excellent execution. The great story combined with the suprisingly well working blink controls can make almost anyone cry. Before your eyes tells a story about life and its importance and god damn it does it well. The web cam adds so much I can't even describe it. Before your eyes takes only about 2 hours to complete but it definitely has good replayability for a second run. For the right person who likes emotional storytelling and sad stuff, I'd suggest this even for the full price. If you can get a good deal for like under 5 bucks it's a must for me at least (I got it from here for like 3 bucks). You "can" play this without the blink controls but listen to me, you NEED the webcam it's so good!

This game, no joke, no exaggeration, no machismo--made me cry. It is an emotionally powerful game that never feels like it's over-stretching, and uses creative gameplay to convey its narrative in a way that no other has before.
