Description

Inspired by the classic story of H.G. Wells, take the role of an intrepid time adventurer trapped in a mysterious future. The only way home may be the demi-god Khronos, Master of the Hourglass...

In a similar manner to Myst, players move around a 3-dimensional world in first person. Collect objects and explore various locations to solve various puzzles. Speak with other characters and grapple with action elements during the game's 40+ hours of playing time.
