Out of Sight

Out of Sight is a unique second person perspective experience where you play as a young blinded girl that has been kidnapped. You can’t see with your own eyes, but you have your teddy bear with you that grants you vision.

By picking up, carrying and placing the teddy bear at different locations you gain new perspectives around the house. Don’t walk too far away from your teddy’s eyes though, since the kidnapper could be right around the corner.

Set in 1980's Sweden. As the girl with her teddy you need to solve the puzzles that will allow you to escape your kidnapper’s house. This eerie stealth game challenges you with a remarkable new camera mechanic that lets you control your character independently from their own point of view.

Throughout the game, you will discover interesting new ways which you can use the teddy’s eyes to your advantage, as you try to avoid the kidnapper while finding a way out.

This game was created in six weeks by a team of 8 people from the FG21ST class at the Futuregames school in Stockholm.

Design:     Per Hallros, Damien Hallström, Mattias Nordebäck, Sigge Lindberg.

Art:            Simon Norrmén, Clara Cox, Eric Östlund, Andrea Rossino.

When releasing the game on itch.io we were incredibly surprised with the reception of it. After only one day it was featured as one of the top games on the website with close to 1000 downloads. It really took off by itself without any marketing!

Many YouTube creators made “Let’s Play” videos that generated over 100 000 views of the game on the first day alone. The game also started being reviewed and recommended in Taiwanese, Korean and English articles.

“[…] the visual design is excellent and the core second person perspective mechanics are used in some very creative ways. It’s got some great ideas and it would be great to see it expanded on in the future.” – Free Game Planet (2022-03-09).

The game has been received so well by players all over world, with wonderful comments being sent to the team on YouTube, itch.io, LinkedIn and more!

Thank you for taking time to read this submission of Out of Sight, we really hope you enjoyed it!
