Somehow Beyond Eyes is able to turn even its flaws into a positive. It’s all indicative of a product that is far greater than the sum of its parts. I never had a particularly fun time while playing the several-hour journey, but by the end, I had grown attached to Rae. Beyond Eyes, in all of its beauty and darkness, had managed to fill my eyes with tears by being one of the most emotionally gripping games I have ever played.
It is remarkable to note that Beyond Eyes originally has a single, female developer - Dutch graduate, Sherida. The game began as part of a final year project for university, in which Sherida set out on a mission to create a "meaningful, emotion driven game without stripping away all gameplay elements".
Beyond Eyes is an incredibly admirable game. Its aim of simulating the experience of being blind is buoyed by a clever central conceit, and genuinely breathtaking presentation. Unfortunately, an exceedingly frustrating pace combined with a lackluster story means that the title ultimately buckles under the weight of its own ambition.
