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 ! <3

I remember coming across this game on some flash game website. I couldn't figure out how to complete it at the time, and I could never remember its name, but the concept stuck with me. I'm glad I stumbled across it again.

It seems like some of the visual effects are missing though? Based on how it looks in some walkthroughs, the text should have an outline, and there should be a zoom blur effect while waiting. Could just be an issue on my end with my browser or something though, idk.

Remember, Flash is no longer supported in the internet browsers. What you play is possible because of replacement "emulator" Newgrounds is using - that is something that tries to but cannot fully replicate the old Flash plugin. And as such sadly you can't expect all the games to look and work like they did back in the day.
I really want to publish all my old games as downloadable at some point, I just need time. Deep Sleep and Don't Escape are already on Steam but 400 Years and several others are barely playable currently - sorry!

Patience is key. ANd i have no patience.

A very deep game🗿

waiting is meta, 10/10

this is so nostalgic for some reason
