Beyond eyes is a story-driven game in which a blind girl explores an unfamiliar environment using her remaining senses to visualize the world around her. Its style is that of delicate watercolors.

Having lost her eyesight as a toddler in a terrible, trauma-inducing accident, Rae is perfectly content to stay at home with a stray cat named Nani. Her beautiful garden is her favorite place to spend time.

Rae’s contentment is shattered when Nani disappears. Heartbroken, Rae makes a decision to venture into an unfamiliar world for the first time to search for the cat.

The player will guide Rae as she explores the world through touch and discovers its shapes and secrets. To find her way, she will also have to focus on sounds and scents.

The manner in which the player interacts with Rae will have an impact on her feelings. Forcing her into dangerous situations can cause her to become frightened and distrustful. The player must then regain Rae’s trust before she will cooperate.

Conversely, if the player respects her wishes and keeps her safe, Rae will become more open and trusting in frightening situations.

The game will be released for Windows, Mac and Linux in July 2014. An Indiegogo campaign is in progress.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
