Critic Reviews for Flat Eye
An incredible look into the advancements in technology and the various perils the future can hold, Flat Eye is a narrative sim with terrific dialogue and individual stories that provide sharp satire and even terrific comedy courtesy of your AI, all while providing a fun challenge as you try and manage this Black Mirror-esque funhouse of a tech-filled convenience store. It's a sweet and savvy twist on simulation games that's worth checking out, especially if it gets more people to watch Clue.
Flat Eye is a simulator whose greatest strength lies in its serious social discussion, quite current and not at all subtle. This element permeates both gameplay and narrative efficiently, creating an experience that is worth more than the sum of its small parts.

I found Flat Eye to be an unsettling game, leaving me with plenty of thoughts on the subjects in the narrative during my nine hours or so with it. In addition, I like the game’s overall premise, and it plays well. However, if the developer intended to leave the player with thoughts about how the future with technology can pan out, they have succeeded.
Holding up a fun house mirror to the worrying trends in real world technological, labour and societal practices, Flat Eye is a game with a message. By combining a resource management game with Black Mirror-esque storylines, it manages to stay both entertaining and stimulating through its 10 hour length. While it’s in need of a bit of TLC right now due to some bugs, Flat Eye is a patch away from being one of the most unique gaming curios of 2022.
