Release of Before Your Eyes on Android and iOS for Netflix subscribers
Want a moment of poetry to take anywhere? Then you will be delighted to discover the release of Before Your Eyes on iOS and Android, exclusively for subscribers to the Netflix platform. We reveal our first impressions of this bewitching narrative game with original gameplay.
The release of Before Your Eyes on mobile
After the success of release of Before Your Eyes on PC in 2021, the game from GoodbyeWorld Games offers a mobile version. If you’ve never heard of this award-winning title BAFTA Games Awards for the best game beyond entertainment, this might be the chance to enjoy it this summer by a pool.
In Before Your Eyes, you live the adventure by Benjamin Brynn’s eyes, as he prepares to pass into the afterlife. In order to be judged by the Guardian, you must browse memoriesfrom the first to the last, to understand who he really was.
Its minimalist graphics and contemplative storytelling plunge you into a captivating atmosphere. This aspect is accentuated by the fact that you have no buttons to press. Indeed, the main particularity of Before Your Eyes lies in its innovative gameplay based on the eye blink. All you have to do is control the movement of the camera and blink to move on.
The quality of mobile porting
Let us now focus on the Before Your Eyes release on mobile. Firstly, the game display has been adapted in portrait to match the camera location.
To enjoy the best gaming experience, make yourself comfortable and avoid being backlit. Take the time to properly calibrate your screen and the blink of your eyes. If you have glasses, watch out for reflections that prevent the camera from detecting your blinks.
Once the right conditions have been met, all you have to do is immerse yourself in this poetic adventure and learn about Benny’s life, with its ups and downs. However, we regret that the voices of the game are not translated. Even though subtitles are available in many languages, it is not always easy to read them while moving the camera.
That’s it for our first impressions of the release of Before Your Eyes on iOS and Android. To access the game, it is necessary to have an active Netflix account. If so, head over to the Google Play Store or App Store to test it out now.
