Available exclusively for Netflix members.
Embark on an emotional first-person adventure where you control the story — and affect the outcome — with your real-life blinks.
Dive into a world of memories and experience a soul’s journey into the afterlife as your whole life flashes before your eyes.
It all begins after you die. You're aboard the ship of a mysterious man tasked with shepherding souls to the afterlife. To help you pass on, he must learn the story of your life. Then he sends you back to relive your most important moments.
The game uses your device's camera to fully immerse you in the story. Control the flow of the narrative with your real-life eyes – blinking through precious memories of family, first love and the birth of an artistic career. Dare to look deeper and delve into your most repressed memories, where a heartbreaking truth awaits.
Combining an innovative blink-interaction mechanic with a charming world and fully voice-acted story, Before Your Eyes is a deeply emotional and relatable journey — one that explores the impossible expectations we place on ourselves and the regrets we carry with us.
Ratings and Reviews
A tear jerker
Look, i don't usually write reviews, but this game...
The story is amazing, and while it's pretty simple, the way it's told is wonderful and beautiful. I don't remember when I actually cried over a game, but i couldn't stop the tears as I played this one.
If you don't know if you'd like this game or not, please just play it. Even if you don't like solely story driven games like this one, it teaches everyone a lesson that they need to know.
This game doesn't just show the life of the main character, Benjamin, but it puts you right into someone else's shoes. It gives you a character to fall in love with, as well as a story everyone can relate to in some way or another. I wish I could rate it more.
Not For Casual Gamers
I wanted to like this game. That said, I don’t have hours and hours to play per day. I’d make it about five minutes in and then I’d have to put it down for whatever reason. I’d come back to it to find none of my progress saved. I’d be right back at the beginning with the un-skippable weird wolf man in the boat sequence. Without saving my progress, the game would always start me back at the very beginning. Okay. I get it. Wolf Man says I don’t have a mouth. He’s bringing me to the tower. There’s a gatekeeper there. Got it got it got it. I’ve seen this a dozen times already. Can I at least skip it? No. This game is less like a blink-through-your-life simulator as it is purgatory. I simply can’t advance through it. Deleted!
You Need to Get This
Yes, I cried so hard I couldn’t see the screen at some points and had to rely on the audio. I cried so hard I was constantly blowing my nose and filled a trash bag 1/3 of the way full with toilet paper because I ran out of tissues. When I think of the ending I start crying again. It felt like I really was the main character, so much so that I kept wanting to tell his parents “I love you” even though I have two perfectly loving parents in real life. I have a headache from how much I cried. Don’t download this game if you aren’t prepared with tissues at the ready.
