Our genre sure ain’t for kids, but occasionally something does come along that can legitimately call itself a work of horror aimed at a younger audience. Such as the upcoming indie game Ian’s Eyes (Steam), which promises no violence, but also looks like it will scare kids (and adults) witless.
Welcome to Wintreal, a small town in the northern US and home to the Blue Norholm Centenary School. Today is Ian’s first day at his new school. Being blind, Ian has always relied on North, his faithful Seeing Eye dog, to guide him. But not everything is as it seems at Blue Norholm, and it won’t take long until Ian’s blindness will be the least of North’s problems…
- Guide Ian through the game as North, his faithful canine companion
- Use stealth, misdirection, and guile to avoid the ghoulish students
- No violence
- Release Date: Q3 2016
