Before your Eyes [game]

 Before your Eyes [game]

I DON'T KNOW. THIS GAME FELT LIKE A TECH DEMO FOR AN IDEA THAT DIDN'T REALLY FUNCTION. IT'S LIKE, YOU ARE A DEAD SOUL IN THE AFTERLIFE PLEADING YOUR CASE YOUR LIFE HAD MEANING BY WATCHING IT BACK, AND EVERY TIME YOU BLINK TIME JUMPS FORWARD, WITH THE GIMMICK IS THE PHONE CAMERA IRL IS WATCHING YOU SO IT'S WHEN *YOU* BLINK. IT'S WEIRD, BECAUSE YOU CAN IMAGINE THE ONE EXACT EMOTIONALLY MANIPULATIVE NARRATIVE THIS COULD HAVE DONE. THE WHOLE CONCEPT OF THE WHOLE GAME SEEMS BASED ON HAVING THE ONE SCENE WHERE THERE IS SOMETHING YOU DON'T WANT TO LET GO OF AND FORCE YOURSELF TO WATCH UNTIL YOU CRY IN REAL LIFE OR WHATEVER, BUT INSTEAD THEY WENT WITH SOME WEIRD DOUBLING BACK UNRELIABLE NARRATOR THING, IT WAS FINE, IT WASN'T TERRIBLE. IT'S JUST WHY EVEN MAKE THAT GAME WITHOUT THE BIG TEAR JERKER PIXAR MOVIE MOMENT? (IS THE REASON BECAUSE BLINK DETECTION MOSTLY SUCKED AND WOULD PROBOBLY AUTOADVANCE ACCIDENTLY FROM A MISDETECTION IF IT TIED ANY SINGLE SCENE AS IMPORTANT)

PS. OKAY, WHAT THE HECK IS THE DEAL WITH NETFLIX GAMING? LIKE, YOU WOULD THINK THAT WOULD BE STUFF LIKE WHEN THEY DID MINECRAFT STORY MODE WHERE IT'S A STREAMED QUICK TIME EVENT TYPE OF ADVENTURE GAME PLAYING THROUGH A MODIFIED MOVIE PLAYER BUT LIKE, NOPE, AT SOME POINT NETFLIX ADDED A WEIRD SECTION YOU CAN JUST DOWNLOAD RANDOM IPHONE APPS FROM A SECRET STORE AND THEY ARE ALL KINDA.... OKAY GAMES?
