3rd eye: 2D Exploration Horror Title Drops Sept. 30th
3rd eye is a new 2D exploration point-and-click horror adventure title developed by 3rd Eye Project and published by Sony Music Entertainment Japan’s publishing label UNTIES.
In the game, players take control of Koishi Komeiji, a quirky little girl with the ability see into the past and inside people’s hearts. She uses her Third Eye to explore the mysterious world of Psyche-ology, a mental realm entirely unlike reality and brought to life by the game’s surreal, hand-drawn visuals. Reminiscent of 2D titles like Machinarium and Fran Bow, 3rd eye looks to explore the creepy side of a fairy tale-like horror.
Per the developer:
- A hauntingly beautiful art style sets the tone of this gripping narrative, exploring universal
themes of loneliness and isolation across six chapters
- More than 10 characters (including special appearances of popular Touhou Project originals)
- A 20,000-word script with three possible endings
- Help Koishi learn to understand the feelings of others and build
friendships to ease her solitude
3rd Eye will be available on Sept. 30th on Steam for $14.99 and will support English and Japanese languages. Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 versions are set to release sometime in Q4 2019. The developer’s website also hints at a PC demo releasing soon.
