Ian’s Eyes

Ian’s Eyes is a game in which you play a guide dog called North, with your little buddy Ian. A blind 8-year-old who starts his first day at a new school, when things conveniently start to go awry. The concept of the game was intriguing enough to want to get my hands on it and with an aggravated sigh at the completion, I was thoroughly disappointed.
