The Eyes of Ara Will Open Next Month – June 28, 2016

Set in a remote and supposedly abandoned castle, the player is tasked with investigating the source of a mysterious radio signal that has recently begun broadcasting from somewhere within its ancient walls. Dark and unsettling tales have been told of the castle for generations, and none of the locals will dare set foot inside. So an unfortunate contractor has been called in to do the job, and it’s now up to him to sort out fact from fiction, find the source of the signal, and uncover the truth.

The Eyes of Ara arrives after three years in development and a successful Kickstarter campaign. It has received a lot of attention for its beautiful visuals. The size of the team is surprising: 100 Stones Interactive is comprised of just one man, Ben Droste: After three years in development, it’s thrilling to finally launch the game and see people enjoying it. I wanted to make a game in which the world itself was the main character. A world that captivates people and inspires them to explore every last corner. The story is told organically though the environment. It’s up to the player to piece it all together themselves in order to solve the mystery.

The Eyes of Ara is now available for Windows and Mac for $14.99 from Steam and the Humble Store.

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.
