What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I'm looking to obtain feedback for the game and it's various modes. I want to involve the community who were fans of the original release and newcomers alike to give feedback and outside opinions to aid with the game's development over time. For the new content I would like to gather data and opinions from players of what sounds interesting to them, listen and choose selectively from some of their feedback, watch through recorded videos they make, and to ask questions directly to them for feedback. I think through people playing through the game through its development will make it an overall better game helped shaped up by the community.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game will be in Early Access for somewhere between 6-14 months.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The final game aims to have eight game modes (five more than are available at launch), the complete Close Your Eyes remake, and the explorable hub area ('The Annex') within the game will be fleshed out based on the feedback from players. A number of bonuses and secrets also are planned to be implemented.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Out of the eight planned modes, three are available. "Girl's Graveyard" is content complete, an unlockable mode known as "Close Your Eyes: The Twisted Puzzle" is completed, while the "Close Your Eyes" remake mode is playable for the first hour or so, up until you reach the Judith Manor section currently. The Annex (the hub area) is closed off, as well as the other game modes aren't available yet.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The game price will raise bit by bit during development, then one final time when it gets closer to the full release. I will announce on the store page and discussion boards a few days ahead of time before this happens.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“I want the community's general opinions, appreciate those who record video to watch and analyze player behavoir and experience, and will be directly asking questions and releasing updates to gather feedback during active development.”

Update on Early Access release

A little bit of an update, this is not 100% yet, but it's looking mighty likely and I want to let you guys know ahead of time.

It's looking like Close Your Eyes -Anniversary Remake- will release in Early Access on December 11th, it will cost $4.99 USD and have a 10% off launch discount. It also will be on sale for 10% off during the Winter Sale, but I highly recommend if planning to pick it up to pick it up during these sales. I'll be releasing a big update and up'ing the price to $5.99 in late January/early February, and then throughout 2019 as some big updates hit, I'll gradually raise the price more and more until the final price, which is planned to be $8.99 USD. The price it'll be during December at 10% off $4.99 USD is literally the cheapest the game is going to be for at least the next three years, so heads-up on that one.

Want to make early adopters be benefited rather than people who wait for a sale.

Anyways, the Early Access release on it's initial release on December 11th will include the complete remake of Girl's Graveyard in it, playable from start to finish. The remake features new areas, new scenes, a new ending, but is not as drastic of a remake as the CYE one and should take someone probably around 1-2 hours to complete (depending on several factors).

It'll include Close Your Eyes: The Twisted Puzzle, which is more of a port of the DLC than it is a remake, but an enhanced port which includes some new things with its endings, a few new secrets, and a new areas, plus some altered puzzle solutions.

The Close Your Eyes remake on Early Access release is not fully playable yet, it'll be playable up until the "Pancake" scene from the original Close Your Eyes, but the path to get to that pancake scene is longer with new areas, story, reimagined areas, and more up until that point. I will also be working with the community, asking questions, collecting feedback to help direct the remake going forward,I plan to be very active and vocal about CYE-AR-.

Just thought I'd let you guys know ahead of time on all of this, if the date changes, I'll let you know.

About This Game

Five years after the original Ludum Dare game and over 3 & a half years since the Steam release, Close Your Eyes returns for its 5-year anniversary with a complete remake. The remake has been redone from the ground up, capturing the ominous feel of the original but with a ton of brand new content, an updated look, various alterations and additions, and a plethora of bonus modes and goodies.

Close Your Eyes -Anniversary Remake- includes:

  • Close Your Eyes: The uprising cult hit about an adorable murderer bound by their past, brought into question by a strange game show host, returns in a brand new way! Completely remade from the ground up, it includes new locations, brand new threats, extended story, 10 possible endings, and a delve into an atmospheric abyss that may linger with you long after you beat it.
  • Girl's Graveyard: The predecessor to Close Your Eyes has also been remade and included! The maddening arcade-styled game about a girl collecting candy for her beloved includes new scenes and greater darker depths. There may be more than sweet things to find behind the facade...
  • Close Your Eyes - Beneath the Surface: A brand new scenario where Marshmallow Monk must dig deep to find a hidden truth... Explore a strange explorable urban setting for a chilling experience that may leave you sinking into the murkiness of an unseen horror.
  • Close Your Eyes Anniversary Mode: A brand new mode which remixes Close Your Eyes with even more new scenes, challenges, and an extended story. Unlike the main game, there's only one ending to achieve in Anniversary Mode, but the route to that ending is unlike anything you've experienced before.
  • Girl's Graveyard Challenge Mode: Are you a masochist? Taking place after the events of Girl's Graveyard as a sequel of sorts, Challenge Mode is not for the weak of heart. Can you overcome all odds and reach the shocking finale?
  • Three Other Bonus Modes: There's even more to experience between three bonus shorter modes to unlock, "The Twisted Puzzle", "Hushed Hour" and "A Ghastly Tale".
  • Unlock the Secrets of the Annex: As you make progress in all of the game modes, you will begin to unlock more content in a new hub world known as the Annex. The Annex holds many secrets...

You're a murderer, we all know it, but do you think you are?
