The Experience

Planet of the Eyes is a retro styled puzzle adventure about a lone robot on a journey through a mysterious world.

The exhibition will showcase a fully playable game projected on-screen, with beautiful vector art by Vanessa Chia, and an immersive score by John Black. The heartfelt story in Planet of the Eyes is written by Will O’Neill and is revealed through a series of audiologs, narrated by Alex Lewis.

More about Planet of the Eyes here.

 

 

Sunset to Sunrise

This is a special event for us as we’ve always wanted to share Planet of the Eyes at an artistic event, and we’re fortunate to work with Site 3 to make this happen on Nuit Blanche.

So this Saturday, we invite all you night owls and video game nerds to to come down to experience the journey that is Planet of the Eyes.
