Perception is a first-person survival horror adventure video game in which the player assumes the role of Cassie Thornton, a blind woman who navigates a mansion through means of echolocation. This skill allows sounds such as Cassie's footsteps, dripping water, or flowing wind to allow the player to catch a glimpse of their surroundings. Through the use of echolocation, the player must explore the environment to examine objects and unravel the game's story.
The player also has a cane that they can tap to provide a complete view of any given room. If the player taps too much, the game's antagonist haunting the establishment, known as the Presence, may kill them. The Presence cannot be killed directly, and has been compared to the enemies in other horror games such as Amnesia: The Dark Descent (2010), Outlast (2013) and Alien: Isolation (2014). Cassie also has a cell phone which the player can use to send pictures and text to an operator who can describe the content to them.
