The Eyestalkers are a colony of watchful eyes. They stare, unblinking, from their window out into the world, tracking all who pass by. When you walk by the Eyestalkers, all eyes are on you, following your movements and wobbling on their stalks. This attention isn't unusual, our every move gets tracked whenever we are in cities, however it is rarely this obvious. Being stared at by this many eyes makes the viewer feel uncomfortable. The only difference to the rest of your day is that the watchers aren't hidden, granting you access to watch them in return.
