Earlier in the year here we were treated with a nice little tease for a game called The Crow's Eye. It looked to be an interesting psychological puzzle style game that 3D2 Entertainment was going to test our brains and sanity with and then there wasn't much more of a word from it since. I know it piqued my interest when I saw it and was eagerly waiting to see some solid gameplay and possibly a date to look out for when it would hit my PC. As it turns out though, it looks like both have been answered here as The Crow's Eye will be launching on March 20th here and we also have some solid gameplay to look at and see if it will hold up to the speculations.
When I first saw The Crow's Eye I thought it was going to be more of a walking simulator in an extremely messed up medical university as the setting stated. Not much in the way of puzzles had been shown, but now it looks like it has more in common with some other great puzzle titles but still set in the now-abandoned medical university as before. To be a little blunt, it looks like the puzzles and traversals are more akin to Portal just with a darker twist to them all. At least that would be my takeaway from the following gameplay trailer that shows the player moving around boxes to solve their way out as well as "teleporting" around the level to get to switches. I'm not going to knock it if that is the case given that Portal is and amazing game; I just couldn't figure out a better comparison as of yet.
Have a look at the new trailer and then get ready for The Crow's Eye to become available on March 20th here via Steam. Then we will see if the game truly holds up to my comparisons or if it is only a deception with some other true horrors hidden within. Be that through the story and environment or through the actual gameplay of the game. Time will only tell for now.
The Crow's Eye — Gameplay Trailer
Brand new gameplay trailer and release date announced for The Crow's Eye, a first-person puzzle adventure in which you will use your wits to escape the abandoned Medical University of Crowswood, while investigating the mysterious disappearances of students and faculty 20 years earlier.
Do you agree with how The Crow's Eye shares quite a few similarities as the other game like I mentioned or is that a bit of a stretch? Do you think the whole game will be puzzles like that or will there be some other new and unique ones mixed in to try and throw us off? Are you as shocked as I with the fast turnaround from tease to release as we've seen here yet again? Let us all know down in the comments and then discuss. If there is more for The Crow's Eye before its launch, we will bring it right to you. Keep checking back in here for all of those updates and visuals as they come.
