Fantastic game with layers of entertainment. I like that the game tends to get progressively harder, which is a bit of an art in itself for a game of this type. If they plan on making a sequel, I plan on being in the brigade of people signed up to buy it.
The Eyes of Ara is a Kickstarter funded adventure and puzzle game with a similar style to the old Myst games. You will move through static locations, animations are typically limited to machinery you interact with, but you have the ability to turn and look up and down for things to interact with. Some of the puzzles are simple but even easier ones might lead you to information you won't know what to do with. It has the difficulty of older games of this style, even common features like a hint system, map, or ability to highlight intractable objects is not going to be found in this game. If you enjoy challenging puzzles in the Myst formula then this will be a game you want to check out, as the puzzles are a strong and challenging part of the game. The story, setting, and music will likely not be of the quality needed to interest fans of the adventure genre or those looking for story.
