Description

Based on Michael Crichton's novel Timeline (1999), you play the role of Chris Hughes, graduate student employed in the archaeological dig in the Dordogne region of France. When your professor, Edward Johnston, fails to return from his experimental trip back in time to the 14th-century France, you must try and rescue him together with another researcher, Kate Erickson, and Victor Baretto, a security expert. Armed with stun rods with explicit orders from the professor never to kill anyone, your adventure will lead you through the medieval town of Castelgard and its fortifications, underground passages and waterways, and the castle of La Roque carefully reconstructed from historical evidence.

The game combines adventure elements with action parts such as sneaking behind soldiers to stun them, shooting with bows, and jousting in the lists, with directions and hints provided by your partners through your in-ear radio equipment. Separate from the game there is a 30-minute tour of the scenes narrated by the author, Michael Crichton. The tour also offers a chance to freely wander around the reconstructed historical environments.
