Utilizing a first-person exploration experience as the player wanders around the environment solving puzzles and learning about the lore contained therein made it unique in its time. And The Eyes of Ara looks to take this idea and make it its own. It's a fully 3D first-person adventure game where you explore a long abandoned castle. That's the pitch, but there's more to it than that."
