Urnique Studio, developers of the upcoming puzzle game Timelie today announced that it will release for PC this Spring on Steam and other digital distribution platforms as well as a brand new gameplay trailer showing off the game’s unique time manipulation puzzle solving.
A mysterious girl able to envision the past and the future, trapped in a world where time flows and ebbs in strange and unpredictable ways. A cat, seemingly connected to the world, becomes her sole ally. Their connection spans time and space, and only through teamwork can they unravel the secrets behind where they are…and why.
Manipulate the unique Timeline ability to jump both backward and forward in time in order to unravel the mysteries of this surreal world. Solve puzzles and avoid enemies by planning your actions in parallel between the girl and the cat by looking into the future and glimpsing if your current course of action will result in disaster. Made a mistake? Just rewind time and try again. Only through teamwork can the girl and the cat find a way to escape. But, they have time.
First conceived as a student project by a small team of developers in Bangkok, Thailand, early versions of Timelie went on to receive recognition from a number of prestigious competitions, including “Winner – Best Game” at Microsoft’s 2019 Imagine Cup Student Development Competition, “Winner – Best Game” at the 2019 Thailand National Software Contest, and “Winner – Best Student Technical Project” at the 2019 Bangkok International Digital Content Festival.
“Since its inception as a student project, we’ve always had a keen interest in taking the idea of time manipulation past the point of putting together a really fun tech demo,” said Parimeth Wongsatayanon, co-founder at Urnique Studio. “We’re absolutely blown away by the game every single day and we’re really excited for players around the world to get their hands on it and see what makes it a truly special and unique experience.”
