“Before Your Eyes” is a Tear Jerker of a Game


The game “Before Your Eyes” is an expert at storytelling and making you cry. The game was rated 10/10 on Steam with over 2,000 reviews and a review of 76% on Metacritic.

The game takes a unique control scheme that tracks your blinks. Whenever you blink in the game, time jumps forward.

The game’s control scheme is what makes the story telling so powerful. As you blink past your life, you look back on moments you wished you wouldn’t have skipped past.

The game starts out with you being in a vast, dark sea. You get fished out by a character who is called “Ferryman”. He informs you that you are dead and he will plea your case to the one in the high tower. He then gives you the ability to blink your way into telling him your entire life story.

In order to play this game though you do need a good, functioning webcam. The story is so sweet and imaginative. There won’t be any spoilers here, but if you do play this game, be prepared to cry.
