Our experts have spent time searching for great games similar to Before Your Eyes and have found the following:
Before Your Eyes is a narrative game about an 11-year-old boy revisiting his life before "crossing over" to the other side. You play by exploring scenes that represent snapshots of his life. Unusually, you make choices and interact with the game by blinking your eyes (seen by your webcam or smartphone camera) rather than pressing a button. It uses this disarming interaction to intimately involve you in an emotional journey about the impossible expectations we place on ourselves and the regrets we carry with us.
Unfortunately, Before Your Eyes is not available on Mac, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One or Xbox X|S. However, we recommend the following games that offer a similar experience or theme:
