The Great Perhaps: OUT NOW!


We are excited to announce the release of our new timetravel-based adventure: The Great Perhaps!

The Great Perhaps is a pre- and post-apocalyptic adventure about a cosmonaut returning to Earth to find a wasteland devastated by an unknown cataclysm. Armed with a mysterious lantern that can both reveal the past and transport you between timelines in an instant, you’ll overcome challenges and survive dangers in both eras to uncover — and perhaps prevent — what happened in this uncompromising vision of our planet’s future.


Key Features:

  • Use time travel to solve challenging puzzles and unlock the mysteries behind the apocalypse.
  • Experience a world of gripping tension and haunting sorrow before and after the fall.
  • Discover innovative storytelling which binds together past and present.
  • Meet memorable characters with touching personal stories.
  • Original dynamic soundtrack which adapts to each timeline.
  • Wistful hand-drawn 2D art style inspired by Soviet aesthetics and history.

Reviews

“The Great Perhaps is a beautiful, melancholic time-travel adventure that, from time to time, invites you to think.”
80 – 4PLAYERS

“The Great Perhaps constantly reminds you of everything, and everyone, that was lost in whatever this disaster was, and when the lantern inevitably times out and snaps you back to the present, it’s like rudely waking up from a pleasant dream into a living nightmare.”

“There’s nothing quite like a quirky, interesting, and mechanically unique indie game[...]. Caligari Games and Daedalic Entertainment have presented us with such a situation, combined with a fascinating gameplay mechanic which is essential to solving the games’ puzzles.”
