A calamity is coming and you embark on a journey to stop it. You only have 400 years.

This is an experimental game about the passage of time. Don't expect swift action. Slow down and think, just don't wait too long...

Thanks for the front page NG !

A good submission, I only wish it was bigger and lasted longer.

It has nice music, simple sound effects and simple graphics. There's nothing wrong with that, on the contrary I think it makes it a pleasant experience. I appreciated the clouds in the background. The only improvement I would want would be to make the graphics on the thing we're playing just slightly clearer so we know what it is we're playing. I'm guessing, a rock, on the basis that people don't seem to mind it unless it's moving? Trouble is, I thought it was a diary piece on my first playthrough, until it stood up.

The way you solve the puzzles is very imaginative, and at times it requires a bit of thinking. It's also a wonderful take on the development of human civilisation, right up until the very last image in the ending sequence (which I would not spoil). Everything is perfect with this game, except the length, and how even for a game this short you end up with tonnes of time left over if you play well - it should have been made into more of a challenge.

I would really love it if there was a sequel to this. May I suggest a title? 4.4 billion years. Wouldn't that be amazing?

Great game. Movement is quite slow, but fitting for a game like this. I couldn't get past the helping hand part. I grew the wheat in the village, but nothing happened. Also, I couldn't see all of the text. (it was cut off at the right side (possibly because I'm using chrome)). I like the whole idea behind this game, it's very creative and inspired. Beautiful art. I give it 10/10 and 5/5.
