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 ! <3

I felt this game relied to much on it's art and music design. They over shadowed the mechanics and level design, which were both sub par. The character design didn't quite make sense in this context.

The entire game is based around a total of three puzzles. the first is a tutorial puzzle that teaches you about interacting with the environment by having you plant a tree. the second you plant wheat in the village to have it evolve. Here you learn that materials will turn to dust over time if you wait at all. The final puzzle teaches you how to manipulate time so you don't lose resources. This leaves no puzzle arc so as a "Game" it has no challenge. It's just an interactive narrative with little to no story.

also, why fast-forward when you have a mechanic based around waiting? If it goes to fast then the mechanic becomes obsolete because it no longer feels like waiting. and making it to slow renders it superfluous as a mechanic.

great experiment but it's not quite there yet.
