The Channeler is an experimental puzzle game, using the Tobii EyeX peripheral to create innovative gameplay surrounding Eye-tracking. Our goal is to discover what unique challenges present in formulating mechanics around eye movement, along with answering a simple question: Is Eye-Tracking FUN?
The game takes place in a kooky city of spirits, where the denizens are plagued by the mysterious disappearances. Fortunately, you are a Channeler; Gifted with the “Third Eye”, you possess a supernatural ability to perceive and control the world around you with merely your Sight. Explore the quirky night market of the city and solve innovative puzzles using your powers to find the missing spirits!
