"This plays like a Half Life 2 mod created in the throes of a schizophrenic episode. This is cruelty squad without the intentionality. This is a brilliant vision realized in finger paint and cigarette burns. If you have high tolerance for weird stuff, foreign jank and mid-era-source engine design tropes, you will find a rewarding experience buried in here. But Lord help me is it buried" - Steam User Mr Seti
I dont have more to say, I just love that review

I have had fever dreams that have felt more grounded in reality than this game...
But for as rough as it is, this small team of indie developers gave it their all, and it does show.

Do you like bad UI that necessitates squinting to read anything? Do you enjoy bland environments? Maybe this game is for you then.

A bizarre game that I think even its biggest fans will admit is incredibly rough around the edges and utterly bewildering at times. In spite of that, however, there's still plenty of fun to be had with it, and it actually manages to achieve many of its rather ambitious ideas. I think it's one of those games that, for a lot of people, you'll be incredibly overwhelmed at first and maybe even dissuaded entirely from playing any further than the opening mission. However (if you aren't turned off immediately by it), you'll find yourself returning to it more and more, fueled both by a morbid desire to try and understand what you're playing, as well as an unexpected, genuine enjoyment of the gameplay itself. At some point during this, the game will suddenly just click with you, and it is that moment that gives this game the avid cult following that it has.
Regardless of whether you like or enjoy it, it's hard to deny that there's nothing quite like E.Y.E: Divine Cybermancy. (Funnily enough, the only comparison I can really think of that feels accurate in every way would be Cruelty Squad lol.) It's a game that, once you've played enough of it, will stick with you forever, if you're anything like me. You'll look back on it from time to time, whenever you're reminded of it, and either think "damn, that game was insane. I loved that," or you'll think "damn, that game was insane. what the fuck even was that".
tbh tho, you'll probably think both of those at the same time
