Netflix is increasingly looking to get involved with video games, and with that, the platform streaming made available the game indie “Before Your Eyes” in its mobile games catalog, this last Tuesday, 26.
To launch the game on the Netflix Games service, the company partnered with GoodbyeWorldGames and Skybound Games, the game’s developer and publisher, respectively. The title is compatible with the systems iOS and Android.
“We designed ‘Before Your Eyes’ as a game that could be played and truly enjoyed by anyone, anywhere, not just seasoned gamers. So for us, there’s no better home than Netflix and the mobile system,” said Graham Parkes, director and screenwriter of the game.
In the plot, the player finds himself in the company of The Ferryman, the one in charge of transporting souls to the afterlife, after these people live spectacular lives. In the midst of this adventure, the player must reflect on his character’s life, the relevant choices he made during his life and the moments that define who he really is. All this controlled by the player’s eyes, using the cell phone camera.
“We use our cell phone cameras every day to share our profound daily experiences. So it feels natural to adjust this technology to explore your character’s life and drive your narrative,” Parkes said.
“Before Your Eyes” was originally released for PC in 2021. The game was well received and nominated for awards, including winning Best Game Beyond Entertainment at the 2022 BAFTA Game Awards.
