Story
Alone on a remote island stands an ancient weathered castle, steeped in legend, shrouded in mystery. For years it has remained quiet and undisturbed, and yet still the townspeople recall old stories of restless dreams, violent storms, and the eerie glow of ghostly lights dancing in the mist. Recently a mysterious radio signal has begun broadcasting from somewhere within the ancient walls. Something inside the castle has awoken, and someone needs to venture inside to uncover the truth…

The Eyes of Ara is a game about exploration, puzzle solving, and discovery. Will you pay heed to the unsettling tales and legends surrounding the castle, or will you set fear aside and venture in with an open and inquisitive mind to uncover the truth for yourself?
  • Countless Secrets to Discover: Weave your way through a complex web of puzzles to unlock the castle’s ultimate truth... or choose your own path. The Eyes of Ara does not hold your hand: Go in search of secret vaults and hidden passageways, locate all of the lost keepsakes, or entwine yourself in the history of the castle and its former occupants.
  • Immersive Environments and Organic Storytelling: Delve into an intriguing tale set within a richly detailed, immersive environment. Explore abandoned rooms, discover lost writings, and recover forgotten keepsakes to piece together the stories of those who once called the castle home.
  • Tactile Gameplay: Manipulate complex mechanisms, solve elaborate puzzles, and interact directly with the environment in a tactile, hands-on experience.
  • Minimalist Interface: Investigate the castle’s secrets through a sleek, minimalist interface that with a click, can be hidden entirely off-screen.

  1. Fun little walking puzzle game
    by comp9, USA - Jul 13th 2017

    I'm finding that walking games aren't my favorite but this one was fun. I liked looking at the scenery the most.

  2. Kudos to the developers, ... BUT! (again)
    by okernel, Australia - Jun 13th 2017

    We appreciate the work that must have gone into developing such an intricate adventure with wonderful graphics and absorbing gameplay; well done. Given the hours of enjoyment this is great value for money. However, as has already been noted, this is also frustrating and tiresome at times. The puzzles get harder as you progress, and for us reached a point (not too far past half way as it turned out) where we were unable to move forward without consulting a walkthrough. We hated doing that, but had no choice. We ended up watching the last quarter or so on YouTube without even playing it through. That may be just a comment on our patience, but we had given it about 40 game hours of play at that point, and we were going nowhere. The "frustrating" comment is aimed at some of the puzzles that were quite absorbing and detailed, yet upon solution only rewarded with a photograph unrelated to moving the goal closer. Do not be put off by these comments if you enjoy adventures in the ilk of Myst ... there is plenty of fun and hours of discovery in a beautifully created environment. As I said, good value for money, and VERY CHALLENGING towards the end.
