Before Your Eyes
July 28, 2022 8:12 PM - Subscribe

Embark on an emotional first-person narrative adventure where you control the story—and affect its outcomes—with your real-life blinks. With this innovative technique you will fully immerse yourself in a world of memories, both joyous and heartbreaking, as your whole life flashes before your eyes.

Now available on android and ios for Netflix subscribers for free, also available on Steam.

[Blinking] may seem like a novel gimmick on the surface, but the mechanic is used so inventively that it meaningfully enhances the already powerful storytelling that fans of narrative adventure titles would be mistaken to write it off as a shallow trick. - Game Informer

Writing about Before Your Eyes is hard. Personally, I find it easier just to have a little cry about it. That way you don’t spoil the story for anyone, and it warns those around you of the catastrophic emotional impact it can have on a person. But I’ll try my best, because this game is magic. Like seriously, you blink in real life and the game reacts. Woah. - Rock Paper Shotgun

This is a short game (1 - 1.5 hours) that totally caught me off guard. I made the mistake of playing it over my lunch break and completely ruining my productivity for the rest of the day. I'm curious to see what other MeFites think about it - currently 'free' for Netflix subscribers, or currently about $5 on Steam and other platforms.
