Gloomy Eyes: The Game tells the poignant story of Gloomy, a mysterious zombie child, and Nena, a young human girl, in a world where the sun has chosen not to rise. Darkness has awakened the dead from their graves, and the living are trying to chase them away. In the midst of this ongoing conflict between the dead and the living, players find themselves closely connected to this unusual couple who are trying to bring light back to the world despite fear, tension, and hostility.
Using the unique abilities of Gloomy and Nena, players must solve puzzles and assist the heroes in their quest to make the sun rise again. They will uncover a unique story about loneliness, difference, and love by solving the various puzzles in this dark and poetic narrative game.
Gloomy Eyes: The Game invites players into beautifully crafted dioramas, thanks to its original artistic direction and graphical style. These elements directly inherit from the virtual reality experience that won the “Best VR Film” award at the Annecy International Animation Film Festival in 2019.
