“Had you known the bloody history of Corona Labs, you would never have signed up as a test subject. But now, plunged into that history, surrounded by the damned and the dying, you must find the truth. Perhaps you will even survive it.”
One Eye Open received 3rd place in the 2010 Interactive Fiction Competition, plus 3rd place in the author-judged Miss Congeniality awards for that year. It was also a 2010 XYZZY Award finalist for Best Game, Best Story, Best Setting, Best Puzzles, and Best Individual Puzzle.
