case-marked experiencer

Hello everyone,

I am thinking of the number of cases I will use in sabyuka, and I am
wondering about a special case for experiencer. I know that a lot of
languages use different strategies to mark it ( for instance dative in
german with certain verbs) but I have never heard about a special case
in natlangs. So has anyone among you tried to use such a case?
Another way I had thought about is to use an ergative/absolutive
opposition so that :
I look at = I make myself see.

So if you know languages with such features, please tell me.
