Before Your Eyes is a narrative adventure game you control by blinking your eyes

You will need a webcam.

Independent game developer GoodbyeWorld Games, along with Skybound Games have announced Before Your Eyes, a narrative adventure game controlled by real-world blinks.

The game tells a story where players will reflect and relive happy, beautiful, and heartbreaking moments of a life once lived. You will embark on the journey with the Ferryman who is tasked with bringing souls to the afterlife. You will progress by using real-world blinking to interact through the story.

Progress is determined through your eyes and detected through a webcam. Each blink will help you interact with the world or make the memory fade and disappear. You move organically through the story and experience its emotions until you reach the end of the journey to "learn the ultimate truth."

“We’ve been working on this game since college—for the better part of a decade—so it’s really the definition of a labor of love,” said Oliver Lewin, game director, and composer.

“We really can’t wait to get this into the hands of players, so they can finally experience this completely new way of using tech to tell human stories,” added Graham Parkes, writer, and creative director. “It’s really something you have to experience firsthand.”

The game will come to PC via Steam on April 8.
