Team17 has announced a publishing deal with the studio tiger and squid, with this deal bringing the game Beyond Eyes to PS4, Xbox One, and PC next year. The game is an exploration title about a girl called Rae who is looking for her cat, Nani. However Rae suffered from an accident which left her blind, so leaving her home Rae must piece together what the world is like through her other senses, like touch for example.
Sherida Halotoe, developer from tiger & squid, spoke about the deal and what it meant.
“I’m super excited to be part of Team17’s Partner Program because it gives me the opportunity to create the best version of Beyond Eyes possible, allowing me complete creative freedom while having Team17’s experienced support network in place. One of the great things about Team17 is that they love and support games in all shapes and sizes, providing all the feedback and help that the individual partners might need.”
Beyond Eyes reminds me a bit of the Unfinished Swan though with a lot less splatter. It’s quite an interesting concept for a game, and if you’re EGX this year you’ll be able to play Beyond Eyes.
