A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

The Whites of Their Eyes is a minimalist 3D platformer, where your only tool is a magic rope. Your village stands just beyond the edge of a forgotten, forbidden land. Become the chosen one in The Whites of Their Eyes as you venture into the land to uncover its mysteries. With a powerful relic in hand, the Naga Rope, you will make your way through the environment, and defeat the beast that threatens your people.

The Whites of Their Eyes centers around the Naga Rope, a magical relic which the player must use to navigate the environment. Swing and pull your way to the boss. Defeat it to secure the safety of your village.

Be cautious as you explore. You may not be the first to have entered this forbidden land…
