Beyond Eyes is a simple and heart warming walking simulator which focuses on Rae who is a blind young girl. Since Rae is blind you can only see areas of the map where she has walked and all other areas will not become visible until you step through them. Rae becomes friends with a cat who visits her daily but one day the cat stops visiting her. Rae does not have any other friends and has not traveled away from her home before until one day she decides to go looking for the cat. You must journey in search of the cat but as Rae gets further from her home she hears things unfamiliar to her that make her scared. You will often have to find other routes to get to the next area and the game does not tell you where to go. This game is a great way to step into the shoes of someone who is blind. It was a very emotional and educational experience. It isn't a long game and it's linear but it was a beautiful experience and it felt like it was worth every penny, I even bought a copy for a friend.
The game is definitely interesting and sometimes enjoyable. The art style is beautiful and the graphics are great. Story is a good chunk of this game, very good story-telling to keep you going. Gameplay is nice, but obviously the mechanics are the base, or almost the base of this game. I actually was a bit surprised by this game and how cool it was. The game has a cool look/style and good gameplay, smooth movement and very nice story.Sure, you just walk around, but the experience really pays that off and for the price? It's nice, it's a well done game with some never before seen mechanics. You think it's this things, but it's actually something else, because of sound, you start "seeing things", and I like that. I like that a lot about this game! So I think it's definitely worth checking out and buying.
Beyond Eyes is less of a game and more of an interactive piece of art. It is not challenging, but it isn’t meant to be; it’s meant to be beautiful. That is both it’s greatest strength and biggest weakness. Beyond Eyes has you playing the role of a blind little girl searching for her pet cat. This is essentially the same plot as the short animated cartoon “Out of Sight” (which I highly recommend you watch), and all you do is wander around the game world. This fills in the white void with a gorgeous watercolor visuals. Of course, parts of the world are also filled in with sounds, but many of them are vague until you get close to them; you may hear what you the game shows you as a woodpecker, but when you get close it might remain a woodpecker or it might turn into a crosswalk button. Beyond Eyes might seem like Walking Simulator 2015, and it plays like one, but its simple story and gorgeous visuals place it above all other walking simulators. Just try to remember that this game is meant to be easy, because anything harder than just simply walking would distract you from the visuals.
Beyond Eyes is the last game from Team 17, the developpers behind the Worms franchise. In Beyond Eyes we control Rae, a little girl who is blind who just lost her cat called Nani. And Blindness is where the whole concept of the game lies. The visuals of the game consist in little parts of Rae's environment popping up right in front of her. It makes sense since she's blind. It has to be difficult for the player to move. Furthermore, the game looks gorgeous. However, Beyond Eyes' problem is that it's just not fun to play. The game's slow pace and the lack of interactivity makes the experience tiresome after some time exploring this beautiful world. Exploration is not a bad thing at all, there is a whole genre of games focusing of this but in Beyond Eyes you're basically just walking around until you'll reach the end. It's unfortunate that the developpers still have such good concepts in terms of visual immersion but couldn't find how to create a proper game out of it.
