You are trying to fall asleep.
In the midst of a silent night, a shadowy being approches your bed.
You can't see it... but across the darkness of your eyelids, a silhuette forms nonetheless.
It seeks one thing: for you to open your eyes, and tell them how they look.
Will you comply? Or will you refuse to see them for what they are?
The choice is yours.

"(Don't) Open Your Eyes" is a short, horror-themed Visual Novel about a midnight encounter with a mysterious being. Through conversation, you'll learn more about them, such as their journey so far, or what they think about themselves. And every now and then, it'll make a simple request out of you: to open your eyes.

It's up to you whether to open your eyes or not. It's up to you to believe if they're really there, or if that whispering voice is only a part of your imagination. Just don't keep your visitor waiting for too long.

Features:

  • A chilling tale about a creature's eternal search.
  • Fully-voiced experience.
  • Choose how the creature looks like at specific points in the story, with up to 27 possible combinations.
  • Each option provides a new bit of dialogue, so be sure to try them all!
  • A succint experience, between 30 minutes and 1 hour in length.

A surprisingly creepy and atmospheric game about the horrors that might lurk in the shadows outside your bedroom door. And having a chat with them, of course.

i think that it would be cool if there was a sequel of this game

I loved it! I really liked the psyche of the monster, and how the monster became of protege of my subconscious up until the end. 10/10

I love how soothing the voice is because it creates an image that you can trust this person and if your curious enough, open your eyes. What was funny is how if you open your eyes in the beginning that's it , so unexpected 🤣

This game is really scary. The whispering and breathing is really unnerving and unsettling. Perfect atmosphere and vibe!

I love this game, i do wish we could have done more for them though. It also gave me ASMR so that was nice.

this guy made me feel a way if you know what i mean ;)

This was very creepy and unsettling. I was totally memorized by the being though.

This was the best visual novel game I've ever played. Highly recommend!

0/10 for not being able to date monster man but 10/10 for a fun game

(+4)

If you do the die ending you have a part of the monster that wont leave you, fits in the definition of date, so its a 10/10

(+1)

i true

Great game!! It keeps u on your feet and curious about how he looks !

I felt so uncomfortable when he was breathing and i can't help but to feel weak cuz I got scared by a bell noise 

the game is extremely well written and really draws you in.

I really enjoyed chatting the night away with my new friend, he has some very interesting stories, its just a shame he is so insistent about the whole opening my eyes thing.

I LOVED this so much I went back and played it a second time off camera! Very chilling yet creative game! 

Such a unique and interesting experience. Creativity really pops on this one and the insight into our thoughts is so accurate. Well done. Very creepy, chilling.
