In The Eyes of Ara, you’ll be exploring an isolated, abandoned castle. A powerful radio signal has recently begun eminating from one of its towers, and strange lights have been seen moving in the surrounding mist.

After having been dormant for ten years, something inside the castle has been awakened. It’s up to you to discover its nature and purpose.

The Eyes of Ara takes place in an immersive, 3D environment full of unique, intricate puzzles and hidden secrets. There is much to explore here, including secret rooms and hidden passages.

The game’s story is revealed through exploration and interaction with the envorinment. You will understand the full picture only by completing the puzzles, finishing the game and discovering and assembling all pieces of the story. The Eyes of Ara won’t be holding your hand through any of it.

A Kickstarter campaign with a base goal of $15,000 AUD is in progress until July 1, 2015. A Greenlight campaign is also in progress. 100 Stones would appreciate your backing and support. 

The Eyes of Ara is being developed for PC and Mac, and is expected to be released in early 2016.

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.
