BeachBall Games, a team of students working on their final University project, is currently developing Time Mage, a 3D puzzle-platformer that puts players in control of a living clock, the titular Time Mage.
The Time Mage has been tasked by Father Time with stopping The Timeless, an evil creature who wants to destroy all of space-time and has recently broken free from its inter-dimensional prison. Players have to travel all throughout the history of the universe in order to repair rifts in space-time. As they progress through the game and through time itself, their actions in the past will impact the future fate of the universe.
As the Time Mage, players will have a variety of time-based abilities at their disposal, which will allow them to both fight the minions of The Timeless, and navigate the bright world of the game. In order to get from a lower platform to a higher one, for example, players might age a tree so quickly that it grows upwards, allowing them to jump across it.
The game does not currently have a release date, but the developers have made a Windows PC Beta available for free. Those interested in learning more about the game can visit Time Mage’s Facebook, IndieDb page, or website. BeachBall Games also has a YouTube channel, where they have a video about the game’s development.
