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

A nice change of pace from the usual games we get. Good job!

There are some things to say, though.
For example, the atmosphere is great and all, but that "ssSSHWOOOOSHHHSSss" sound effect that plays when you 'Wait' really takes away from the overall experience.

If you can, change that noise or remove it entirely.

Other than that, it's a cool new concept.

I like it when someone puts effort in these kind of games and gives them a nice backstory rather than just putting it in another abstract laboratory setting with a sardistic instructor in the background.

Now as I played it to the village which is struck by famine I thought the story would progress in a direction with a moral like: "Help those on your way and you do the right thing (and therefore prevent the calamity)"
But your endings was allright and the game itself was great! ^^

One of those games that feels "just right." Cool concept of time and season, this could be expanded into a lot of other possibilities. Yeah, the walking was slow, but the game's about patience, right? It's kind of a nice break from all the fast-paced stuff we play these days.
It also had a good balance of being just puzzling enough that the challenges were satisfying. I went very quickly from not having any idea what to do to feeling like, "I've got this. We'll just wait about 15, 20 years...."
Great job.

Concept: Like most people said already, great, epic , but simple concept that no one has ever thought of. This concept could be expand way and way more.

Gameplay: It is like a walk in the moring. You don't care about how long it take to the objective, but what you see on the way. Claiming me from all those high-speed games of recent decade. Feel really refleshing and relexing.

Music: gix the game almost perfect. Only that it's quite too repeating. (I do not oppose repeating because it support the concept, but I oppose the one-feeling repeating of the song. I only feel like it's spring all year. Maybe some extra of summer or winter could help.)

Wow. This was depressing. I think my heart broke a little.
Great great great music and very unique and refreshing concept. This game is really calming; right now, I'm in a state of complete relaxation.
You truly feel like a kind and gentle giant while playing this. Made me think about patience and how we try to rush things really often.
Gorgeous piece of work.
