Close Your Eyes is a puzzle horror game where your only defense against enemies is to close your eyes. Enemies will not chase you while your eyes are closed. You are being hunted down in an eerie research facility with a backstory shrouded in mystery. The creatures that roam in this facility are tenacious and ruthless. Remember, if you can't see them, they can't see you.

You can't outrun them. You can't hide from them. Your only option is to close your eyes.

That was a super unique experience. At first I thought the entire game was going to take place in the facility, but the variety of different environments ranging from tunnels to abstract noise art realms really surprised me, and it made the entire game feel like a grand adventure. 

One thing I did find confusing at first was the stuff you see when you close your eyes, I originally thought it was just mental cues you remember from the rooms, but then you could see through walls and not even see or recognize the things that obviously made a lot of sound. Later in the game of course it was a lot more clearer, but I do feel like explaining it near the start of the game could be beneficial.

Aside from that, I loved the game. It had a variety of environments, puzzles, and damn stressful chase sequences which felt very rewarding to beat. Congrats on the game!

Such an awesome concept Wow! :)) 5/5

Incredible game! The idea of it is so cool, I love how our surroundings change whenever we close our eyes. Nice job!

This game was awesome! We liked the concept idea, the story and the gameplay! We also find all the endings in this one!  You did an amazing job! Keep it up!

When I open the game there's no sound. Fixes anyone?

go fuck yourself

Sorry for the stupid question...  I downloaded this on Linux. What do I do now? I would love to play this game pleez halp


This game was amazing, really cool concept of the eyes being closed to see. I streamed this last night on Twitch, my viewers loved it. Anymore releases coming out? 

Amazing game, got all the endings I guess, thank you for making this.

hey I am a Chromebook user and I really really really really really really really really want to play this game in my browser but I cant and I have tried linux but thats a bit too complicated for me. so please make this playable for chrome

This was a really creative game, some great scary and tense parts! Really high quality. I had a lot of fun streaming it.

i really enjoyed playing this game and i liked the mechanics and the atmosphere was good was definitely creepy

Question: everytime I launch the game, it automatically opens the Oculus app, can you play the game in VR as well?

It was a pretty good game! Me and my cousins loved it!!

Got the CRAP absolutely scared out of me with this game! BUT it was a blast haha

Loved the game I put it in my latest three free horror games video, Its the last one in the cue

Welcome back to three free horror games (Ep.6) Todays games are more weird than horrifying but are scary in their own rights. Come check it out as we go from searching to symbols to hiding by closing our eyes. Welcome back to the Asylum

I'm sure it's been said plenty of times before but here's another for the pile; this game is amazing. Perfect length, great ambiance and atmosphere, fairly spooky enemy that ENCOURAGES you to look away from it, similar to Amnesia. I do feel the lower points were the chase sequences, however, I don't think any points in this game are particularly bad. Great experience all around. I honestly can't believe it's free. Thank you for making it. If you're interested in watching, here's my experience. 

Authentic, unique experience.


Tried out the game...

(1 edit) (+1)(-2)

Gamagami, The Game is very good even what is missing is two things, a version for Android and iOS and subtitles in Brazilian Portuguese to make it perfect ♡♡

This game is very creepy! part 1 of our playthrough! 


This is for real very spooky and the most creative game I tried on itch. While I ran like a girl most of the part, I also enjoyed solving the puzzle(which I usually don't).  The puzzle is amazingly clever and easy to understand. I look forward to see a sequel of this game(no joke). The insane part is that the game is FREE!!! 

One question tho, when you open the door behind at the end of the game, you end being greeted by a strange enviroment(can't say due to spoilers), then you return back to your desktop. What is the reason behind this?

ITS FUN! I have done playing it and record the gameplay on my YT channel and of course  I can tell that this game  absolutely worth to try. its have puzzle and some jump scare too! very recommend it! thanks for making this game ;)

I absolutely loved this game

Looking forward to more from you! :D


I'm a Linux user, and when I try to run the game by:
chmod +x CloseYourEyes.sh
Inside the game folder, I get the error 'segmentation fault'. What should I do? Thank you

PS.: I'm new on Linux :T

is good

This game is awesome

Hey, I decided to play this game, but when I open it, there's no sound. Any way to fix this? Thanks in advance!

try  right clicking on your volume icon in your taskbar, and select Volume Mixer. Look for the game and raise it, if  it is already up try messing around with the game settings.

the graphics are so good i love the game was really scared xD sometimes it does crash or just freeze so please do fix those issues 


it might be your PC im not sure but try running NOTHING else while running the game, maybe it will crash less

Played the game, I gotta be honest for a free horror game like this, IT IS VERY GOOD. I'll rate it 100/10. The atmosphere and the sound kills me the most.  If you guys wanna watch my gameplay:

Hey! Part of your game is also available on my channel's fun video!

It's still on the way, but it's scary!

This is a highly recommended horror game.

I like the power to see in the dark. However, the paths to follow are difficult. However interesting it is.
