Project Temporality 1.1 is Out !

So it has been a while here since the last update but this is a big one. We have meticiously gone over the levels and the puzzles and tweaked/improved or removed them to make the entire game as seamless experience as possible. We also tried to remove all cases where a puzzles problem was execution of it and not to realise the solution.

We also hope you all see and like our new Boxart and banners we think it's a great step up !

We have also gone through the tutorial parts and removed possible stopgaps for the players and added more hints. Everything to make this the definitivt verision of Project Temporality. In case you haven't tried out the game yet this is defnitely the time to do it.

We have also removed varius bugs and glitches.

Features
* If player misses a tutorial hint it will come back so that you don't get stuck.
* If a player is confused or doesn't seem to do anything the game will try to give a hint in some normal cases.
* Extra hint about platforms.
* Extra hint about using the minimap to see the effect of buttons
* Extra hint with help at the 2 button puzzle at the end of level 1.
* Player can no longer leave timewarp mode incorrectly in the first clone puzzle.
* New hint at first puzzle of level 2.
*Level 14 final puzzle now visual shows clearly which of the two parts of the mainlock that you have opened and their timers.

Puzzles
* Puzzle at end of level 11 highely modified.
* Puzzle at level 6 tweaked to remove unecessary waiting
* Removed Timing based puzzle on begining of level 11 that is siilair to other puzzles.
* Removed puzzle at beginnign of level 12 that was to smilair to puzzle at level 11.
* Removed large chunks of levels that was there only as transport distance
* A bunch of timers are tweaked.

Fixes
* Updated collision model for some parts of Steam that where incorrect
* Increased Rewind/Forward max speed.
* Fixed some other small bugs.

We still has some planned updates coming with extra languages etc. But for the actual gameplay we probabely won't make any changes to the levels after this one.

We hope you will enjoy it !

Patch 1.05 Live

So it has been a bit longer than we wished for due to external circumstances but we are very proud to announce our newest patch. Except for general bug fixes and tweaks the big announcement is that the game is now localized in Spanish thanks to Sergio Prose. We are also adding some code for the players experiencing slowdowns that should help.


New features
* Made game localizeable
* Spanish localization by Sergio Pose
* Very low mode. 50 to 90% faster than low but sadly has to sacrifice quite a bit of visual effects. Allowed us to lower our limit to a Intel HD 3000 but for people ready to play in 800x600 they can go quite a bit lower.

Bug Fixes
* Fix for incorrect achivement updates in some cases.
* Fixed Sound issues in Time warp mode
* Anti Deadlock code for special lockup cases
* Temporary slow down code to correct negative performance spiral if for some reason framerate drops temporarely
* Fixed some tutorial script problems.
* a lot of small fixes and tweaks.

Reviews

“I think Project Temporality is Super Cool. The major strength of the game is it's puzzle design and the way it makes you feel once you actually succeed at a puzzle”
Northernlion

“Puzzles stay challenging and never grow old—which is particularly impressive given how much time you spend in some puzzles, unlocking and then rewinding new sections with your clones”
9/10 – Game Zone

“A puzzle game that triggers the very same parts of the brain as Portal, while not feeling like a copy. It's beautiful, fun and contains just the right amount of challenge.”
8/10 – IGN

About This Game


Experience the mind bending power of single player cooperation.

Project Temporality is a third person action/puzzle game built around the concept of allowing the player to play with time. Thanks to our proprietary engine Sparta 3D we make the fourth dimension as available as the other three. Just as with a VCR you can rewind time or fast-forward through it seamlessly.

Combining this and our time line concept you will solve mind-bending puzzles, by giving yourself a helping hand. Any time you need a friend, you can be that friend. Create a new timeline at any time/any place there are no restrictions. This game is all about giving you full freedom in four dimensions.

Solve puzzles involving lasers, mirrors, force fields, trap doors, platforms, keys etc. Exploit time to do the impossible. Explore the world and see into the mind of its people. We hope that you will enjoy the result of our years of evenings and weekends.

Contains 6-14 hours of gameplay.

Key Features


  • 4D Gameplay
    The fourth dimension Time is as accessible to you as the other three since at any time you can rewind to any earlier point in time, to find that perfect moment for you. No more frustrating replays performing the same sequence over and over again. Just rewind and fix.
  • Single Player Cooperation
    This is the key part of the game. You can exist in many parallel timelines using time clones. It means that every time you need a friend's help in the game, you can be that friend. You can spawn a new time clone at any position and time in the game, and once you create a new one it’s there forever.
  • Multiple true timelines
    Time clones will continue to perform the actions you recorded. They are, however, still a part of the game world, and if you change the game world the end result will also change.
  • Temporality fielded objects
    A temporality fielded object is an object that won’t be affected by your time manipulations, because it is inside a field that cancels out all timelines except the original one.
  • The Paradox Effect
    Combining the true timelines with the temporality fielding allows us to create paradox based puzzles where one single timelines performs multiple different actions depending from where in time it is viewed. Mathematically every temporality fielded object increases the number of dimensions with one which is what allows the paradox effect.

If you gave Portal a time machine, you'd end up with Project Temporality. Third person puzzling using time travel mechanics. It can be tricky to get your head around the concept, but once you do, it's good fun. It also manages to look absolutely stunning to boot.

Okay, you can stop all telling me about Thinking with Time Machine. I know it exists, it launched almost the same time as this game and it crashed on the first level every time for me. This game works. That one doesn't.

If you have photosensitivity issues, such as migraines and seizures, you may want to be cautious when playing this game. The lights, textures, and movement can cause problems. Personally, I got a migraine every time I tried to play, and other games of this type (Portal 2 immediately comes to mind due to the similar mechanics, and Dead Space due to the style) don't cause that sort of reaction.

The concept is fun, and as a puzzle game, it's definitely good. Just use caution if you're susceptible to headaches and the like.

RECOMMENDED.
This is some kind of mix between The Swapper and Thinking with Time Machine (which is free).
From The Swapper, it takes the idea of cloning yourself to achieve the goals of each level.
From Thinking with Time Machine, the time roll-out concept.
Graphics are a tad odd, better than in The Swapper and not so charming as in TWTM (which, in fact, uses Portal 2's toolbox).
I would try both mentioned ones first to this one but, once you are done with those, this is a curious blend.
If you liked those, you will probably like this one, also

I spent 7.49 Euro on Project Temporality, and I'd honestly say it was worth it. The game is short, though. The game runs about as long as the original portal and has more than enough puzzles to be interesting, with some of them requiring very abstract thinking. It looks pretty good technically, though it's very samey, and I wouldn't with the story if I were you. But should you get it? Well...

If you like puzzle games, DEFINITELY buy this. It's one of the better puzzle games I've played in a while and - unlike the others - it doesn't look awful. The controls are loose and wobbly, but with essentially infinite-use time reversal, you can account for that. It's clever, it's creative and it gives you mechanics which seem familiar, but are fairly unique on their own. This will challenge your brain, but in a good way.

However, Temporality is also a very slow-paced game. While you may beat most levels in under three minutes on the clock, keep in mind that the clock counts back when you reverse time. So while it may be an absolute 3 minutes, you'll actually be spending 15-20 minutes per level. The character jogs slowly, jumps awkwardly and the game requires a lot of repetition, minor adjustments to positioning and timing and a lot of staring at a puzzle to figure out what you to do. If you need action, this isn't the right game. And it also goes without saying that if you're awful at puzzle games, Temporality will frustrate you.

For me, though, it was a worthwhile buy at 7.49 Euro. I'm not entirely sure if I can recommend it at its full price of 15 Euro, though. I mean, it's cool and creative, but also VERY short. If you're a huge puzzle game fan I can kind of see paying full price, but for my pocket I don't know that I could go much higher than 10 Euro. Then again, I'm stingy :)

I would recommend this game to anyone who likes quirky puzzle games. While the production values are not up there with the AAA titles it's still pleasing to look at and play. The pacing of the puzzles kept me moving forward through the game with only occasional hikcups.

While sometimes frustrating I really enjoyed watching my clones carrying out my tasks and once I got my mind into thinking with time it really started to get intressting. If you liked games like Portal,Braid and The Swapper you will probabely enjoy this one too.
