With Simogo’s Lorelei and the Laser Eyes now only a few days away, we wanted to touch base with some of our team to see how they’re feeling about the game. We’ve seen a range of media up to this point, from gameplay showcases and trailers, we’ve seen the press releases, and heard the talk, but how are we feeling? That’s where we’re bringing Hype Check into the mix; to get a gauge on what the prospective players are thinking. So here’s how we’re feeling about Lorelei and the Laser Eyes.

So, I’m not normally into horror/mystery types of games these days – maybe it’s just a reaction to surviving in our own world or something. But the aesthetic certainly feels special, and the puzzling might be kind of interesting.

There’s a place for quirky games, but unfortunately Lorelei and the Laser Eyes isn’t the quirky game that speaks to me. Aesthetically it looks intriguing enough, but the vibe doesn’t resonate with me in this case. I can very easily see this game attracting an audience though, there are a lot of boxes that the game ticks for other sections of the audience, but for me, those boxes will remain unticked.

Normally, I absolutely love these sorts of games. I have played so many of them including the indie game Eyes of Ara and yet, Lorelei and the Laser Eyes doesn’t appeal to me. On paper, it’s everything I should enjoy. Puzzles, mystery and murder! Yet I feel myself being repelled by the trailer. I thought maybe it’s just I was in a weird mood so I watched it again and there’s definitely something there. I’m hoping that it’s just that trailer is making me feel that way, so I hope there’s a demo. It might be the thing that gets me on side.

Maybe I was just spoiled by Paradise Killer, which was exactly what I wanted from a murder mystery style game. Lorelei and the Laser Eyes has a great aesthetic dripping with style and a pedigree from both designer and publisher that speaks volumes, but I’m just not vibing with it. I’ve been plenty wrong in the past though, so hopefully a demo of some kind makes it’s way into my hands to let me give it the benefit of the doubt.

I’m tentatively intrigued by Lorelai and the Laser Eyes, and only partly because it has one of the best wordy titles of the year. Year Walk was properly creepy, and I feel like this game is going to be similarly atmospheric in a way that just might stick with me. Maybe it won’t hit, but I’m always interested in dabbling in a good mystery/puzzle game, and this one is no different. If anything, my concern is that it’s going to be a little too weird and ~artsy, but even those sorts of games are fun to talk about. I don’t know, I’m kinda interested to see where it goes.
