Long Distance Caw: The Crow's Eye Demo

Should have called that electrician

The title of this game made me think of 1) Captain Birdseye and 2) a ‘Crow’s Nest’, you know, that pirate lookout post thing on tall ships. So now what I am thinking of is a game where you play Captain Birdseye on a mission to go and get some tasty fish fingers and you are travelling the high seas in the Crow’s Nest to locate some fish fingers that some nasty fish finger bandits have dumped in the sea. In this scenario the fish fingers float, so you can scoop them up with a net and then put it in your treasure chest so your mum can heat them up later.

It turns out that The Crow’s Eye is actually a suspense-laden first-person ‘terror’ adventure with hints of crafting. So. I guess there’ll be no fish fingers?

You play a young man who has awakened in the long-abandoned Crowswood University, and has to craft his way to survival throughout an environment where it seems like not much electric light is available (perhaps some sort of Amish situation). You can use items to stun enemies or use them in ingenious ways to navigate your environment. It’s the first endeavour of 3D2 Entertainment, a Spanish indie studio born in Barcelona.

It’s very much the child of BioShock and Amnesia: The Dark Descent, and the demo plays like it. The demo comes in Windows, Mac, and Linux flavours, while The Crow’s Eye is also on Steam Greenlight, and the Kickstarter can be found here if it sounds like your sort of adventurey-puzzley-horrory thing.
