About

Would you like a cookie? You look confused… 

We are very excited to present our Kickstarter project “An Eye without Mind”, the manga-style comic book with Augmented Reality that tells the spiraling story of Cassandra, 

a girl who lives with her blind brother,

and desperately keeps looking for a guy she met called Soren,

believing him to be the only one 

who can understand her terrible secret,

for she is convinced that the world is not real. 

And, to make things worse, 

there’s always this little girl following them around… 

offering them free cookies… 

We want you to experience this augmented manga with your phone or cardboard-type Visor, and see all the exciting features inside the pages that will make you doubt your own reality!

What we will create with your support

The project’s target is to print a 24 pages comic book ‘An Eye Without Mind’ in our own, tested Japanese/manga style. The cover will be in full color, and the pages inside in black and white.  It will feature some amazing special effects that you can visualize and hear with your own phone! Also, it will have a free extra mode for your phone, so you can use it with the VR visors commercially available to get a more intense experience. Finally, we will develop its own free app that works with the printed comic book.   

The story we want to tell is an emotional roller-coaster where Cassandra and Soren need to find out how to defeat the imminent danger that’s making their lives impossible. The AR effects on each page will make you live the cold rain while Soren tries to find an answer whilst getting soaked on a park bench. The fog all around the town messes up Cassandra’s state of mind, and the ambience noise makes you feel inside the story instantly using your own phone. The Eye without Mind is an interactive experience that gets you involved because, while you read it, it also plays with you… but no spoilers for now! 

We love telling stories

Our indie studio, Entangled Perceptions, was born 10 years ago, and since then it has won awards due to its original stories with many different interpretations. Our first work, the graphic novel ‘Nine Moons over Deven’ sold more than 2000 copies in comic conventions, and was featured in dedicated magazines like ‘Niponia’. We also worked one whole year with one of the most prestigious universities in Mexico with a dedicated comic section to bring science and its heroes to life. But more than anything, we enjoy reading and telling stories, with whatever we have in our hands. 

An Eye without Mind, a different bit of reality in your hands 

This time, with your support, we will be able publish the story ‘An Eye Without Mind’ that will enhance your reading experience with an Augmented Reality (AR) environment, published in professional offset printing and binding. The cover and inner pages will show our tailor-made effects, created just for the story.  Your donations will be used to print the high-quality paper edition of the comic book, the costs of packaging and design, and the resources needed to produce the AR environment. 

The final product will have a link to download our free app, in which you will see the effects right on the screen of your phone. For a more immersive experience you can use any commercial VR visor that works with your phone (believe us: it’s really worth it! We have tried it ourselves). The effects will include blocks where the drawings come out of the page, rain, fog, sound effects, … and we have many other surprises for you! Share the app with your friends so they can see in their phones the effects inside your copy of “An Eye without mind”.

We have a lot of experience drawing comics, graphic novels, and AR programming. We’ve been publishing for 10 years. And we know we can deliver the product that you deserve in four months: we promise to keep you updated. The product will be complete by the end of April, and at that point we will be sending their brand-new copies to all the ones that choose it as a reward with your help!

Our timeline: 

  This project is special to us because it is our way of telling a story in which you can get involved. It’s not just you turning the pages, but also the story turning something inside you. We had this idea while we played our favourite games: Silent Hill, Fatal Frame and Resident Evil. We believe games and comics should have a great story, along with the effects that will make them even more amazing. With your support, you can bring the Augmented Reality to reality! 

A very important note is that our program currently only runs in Android. The next step will be to make it run on iOS, but we are still testing! We’ll do our best to develop it soon!

Risks and challenges

We have produced various comic books before, and the main risk would be that out trusted printing partners disappear unexpectedly for some reason (although they have been in business for more than 12 years). However, we have considered other alternative printing sites that might help us in that case.
In rare occasions, it occurs that some deliveries get delayed, but if that were to be the (unlikely) case, please just let us know and we will fix the problem quickly and efficiently by getting in touch with them directly. Thank you so much for your trust; we are used to having to work on tight schedules and deadlines and we will make sure that you get the amazing story that you deserve on your hands.
