Eyes in the Dark: The Curious Case of One Victoria Bloom
Fight with light against the dark in this "roguelight" platformer starring Victoria Bloom!
Drive back the darkness that's overrun Bloom Manor and conquer swarms of creatures as you discover powerful new items to upgrade your arsenal.
Light and Fight
Use your flashlight and slingshot to clear the monsters overrunning Bloom Manor and save Victoria’s beloved Grandad, Victor.
Uncover new items that power up your fight and change the way you play, including new gadgets, weapon modules, and upgrades to grow your arsenal for future runs.
An Ever-Changing Mansion
The layout and contents of Bloom Manor change with every run -- the further you progress, the bigger and more deadly your foes.
Powerful new perks await within new areas, but require you to choose a corresponding weakness. How will you balance power and difficulty?
Full of Powerful Discoveries
Find new items and combine their effects via tinkering to discover surprising synergies.
Will you throw Matches that burn your enemies or finish them off with an Electricity Bulb that chains to multiple monsters? Should you upgrade the flashlight to do more damage or increase its range? What gadget better suits your style: double-jump or slow-time?
Confront the Darkness
Face off against powerful (and gigantic) Guardians and retake Bloom Manor from the darkness by completing quests to unlock the secrets of Victoria’s eccentric family, then use their quirky gadgets and contraptions to cast a guiding light into Victoria’s future.

8 / 10
Eyes in the Dark doesn’t exactly reinvent roguelites or twin stick shooters so much as it simply takes good parts of those things and ties it up neatly in a darkly humored style, both charming and creepy. The black and white art style, quirky soundtrack, and unique light-vs-dark elements are quite enjoyable. RNG can and will cut your runs short, and I think its permanent upgrade system is a bit too stingy to keep things moving along, but it’s still quite an amusing roguelite romp that will keep you cutting through the darkness on your way to discovering the mysteries of the Bloom family.

4 / 5
Eyes in the Dark is ultimately a unique and very distinctive entry in the rogue-lite genre. It certainly won’t resonate with everyone, but it’s well worth a look if you’re in the mood for a charming rogue-lite that looks like it just jumped out of a Tim Burton movie.
