What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We decided to go into Early Access because we want to make sure that the main mechanics and the new style of the game will appeal to players.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game will be in Early Access until 2022.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“In the full version, new levels and mechanics may appear. We may add a plot, making the game even more interesting to play by providing context to the time manipulation and enemies.
We are also planning to add a level editor and workshop.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“In the current version of the game we start with a basic tutorial that includes 7 levels. Beyond that, there are over 40 levels of progressing difficulty, plus a "sandbox" mode.
Sandbox mode is where the player places bots, cars, explosives and barrels at will, and is free to interact in the scene imaginatively.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“After Early Access, the price will increase slightly for the full version.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

About This Game

An unlikely hero with an unusual power

In a laboratory where intelligent and powerful robots are under development, a failure suddenly occurs. This transforms the seemingly innocuous machines into bloodthirsty agents of evil. But you have a secret weapon: the ability to stop time momentarily. Use your precious seconds of frozen time to make small but critical changes, then, when the normal flow of time is restored, watch as the hilarious chaos unfolds.

A god of manipulation

Take “possession” of the robots, then manipulate them into annihilation. To ensure every last one of those evil machines is put to rest though, you’ll also need to make clever changes to the scene.

Create a glorious “chain of destruction”

Explore the immersive VR environment, then set up “booby traps” that will lead to satisfying “conclusions.” Blow up flammable barrels and explosive cylinders. Break chains, rescue hostages, dodge shots, change the direction of cars and cranes, place dynamite, shockers, and more. Make sure you get all the robots though, because if you don’t, you’ll be the one who ends up dead.

Train a devious mind

Time Hacker currently features more than 40 exciting levels of varying difficulty. Go through the easy levels to build up your abilities and learn the basic controls. Gradually unlock more difficult levels as you progress. To complete the most difficult levels, you’ll need to carefully plot a sequence of glorious destruction. To do so, you’ll need both mastery of the controls and sharp (and devious) mind.

Sandbox Mode

Time Hacker also comes with “Sandbox Mode,” where you can place bots, cars, explosives, and any other items at will. Here, the sky's the limit on your creative destruction.
