While set against a backdrop of psychological #terror, The Crow’s Eye is a #firstperson #adventure developed in Unity. Where the player controls a young man trapped in the abandoned Crowswood University. Hence what was once a reputed medical college. This is a complex story narrated through documents, recordings and radio. Since gameplay focuses around the experiences of a policemen and professors. Twenty years ago they were involved in a series of mysterious disappearances. So in order to escape, the player is forced to investigate his relation to obscure facts.

Linux release:

“Hi Todd!

Our priority is Windows. However, we want to release the game on Mac and Linux too, but only when we know that the game runs perfectly on these platforms. We’ll do [everything] possible to have the game on Linux.”

Once again, we have another developer keen to release a stable port. Not that 3D2 Entertainment would not benefit from a solid day-one Linux release. But again, and I’ve said this before, making sure everything is running smooth on one platform takes priority. Small development studios do not have the manpower.

You can use items to stun enemies or use them in ingenious ways to navigate your environment. It’s the first endeavour of 3D2 Entertainment, a Spanish indie studio born in Barcelona and it’s impressive.

Remarkable features:

  • Crafting items: Collect the different receipts to discover how to ellaborate items parting from others you will find through the levels. Some will be more hidden than others, so search well through the many rooms, ventilation ducts, furniture, etc. Items will have different uses. While some will be used to advance through the game, others will drive enemies away, or will grant improvements to the player.
  • Interact with your surroundings: You can use the vast majority of items that surround you in many ways, as would be throwing them against enemies, reaching high areas, and opening doors or drawers. In some puzzles or situations you will need this kind of elements, otherwise it will be difficult or close to impossible to advance in the game.
  • Explore: Freely investigate the map in search of documents, crafting items or secrets hidden throughout the game. Exploration will always rewarded for those tempted to search in hidden places.
  • First-person immersion: Put yourself in the skin of the character and advance through the abandoned Crowswood University, its installations and surroundings. The melodies altogether with the sounds will make it a chilling experience.
  • Great variety of puzzles: Solve a great variety of puzzles spread through the game to advance through the plot. You may encounter two types of puzzles in-game:
    – Main puzzles: They are part of the main plot and are compulsory in order to reach the following levels. There is a vast range of them through the game.
    – Secondary puzzles: They do not follow the main plot and unlock secret areas. There are a few of them spread through the levels, and their difficulty is quite high. Some puzzles are not what they look like.
  • Observe the enemy: Advance stealhily and beware the enemies’ moves. Search their weaknesses in order to confront them, use crafted items or those in your surroundings to stun them. There is a broad range of enemies in the different levels, each worse than the other, so make sure you are ready before advancing, or you will last little to no time alive.

The gameplay is very much the child of BioShock and Amnesia: The Dark Descent, and the demo plays like it. While The Crow’s Eye is also on Steam Greenlight, and the Kickstarter can be found here if it sounds like your sort of adventure puzzle horror game thing, pledge, vote.
