The game is known to lag in Chrome browser. If the game is unplayable, consider using different browser to see if that helps.

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 !

An absolutely gorgeous game, to be sure. The music is perfect for setting the mood, and the graphics are just what they need to be; the speeding up of villagers is top-notch, and even the sound effect for waiting is excellent.

To expand on what HorstDoerte is saying, if you find yourself needing a helping hand, remember that people will help you if they're well-fed. Help them to help themselves, then stand at the eastern shore of the village and wait. I've managed to get what I needed as early as year 58.

Also, my current record for saving the world is Spring of year 126. The secret medal was a nice touch, too; suffice to say, you'll need to go beyond the call of duty to find it, and tend your garden. I managed to find the secret and save the world by year 147.

All in all, a game with excellent mood and just the right amount of tedium (no, really) to convey the sense of a being whose best tool is the passage of time.

Brilliantly original and the music adds so much atmosphere.

The overall mood is entrancing. The music and the graphic style really help to create a very 'mythical' type of atmosphere.

This would make a really cool movie too, btw, animated or otherwise.

Funny how the people turned into a blur when you sped up time, and it was a nice touch to see their society 'developing'.

My one criticism is that it wasn't long enough! Although I know with these art-type pixel games, typically its best to keep it short and sweet.

Good job, please make more.
