If you’ve been looking for a game that is beautiful in terms of art and story, Before Your Eyes is it. However, be warned that you will definitely need some tissues if you’re playing this game.

Although, it may be difficult to stop yourself when the tears start flowing.

Before Your Eyes is a wonderful experience that will stay with you long after you’ve played it.
