What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Time Break Chronicles already has a variety of heroes to find, unlock, and play with. We are excited to work with the community to refine future content, test and balance existing content, and polish the game based on feedback.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We would like to release the remainder of our planned content by the end of 2024 if possible. We are taking an iterative approach to updates, based on player feedback, and will continue polishing the game and releasing content as long is necessary.”

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

“We plan for the final version of the game to contain a cast of 100 characters and 6 total acts to explore, with additional encounters, boss fights, relics, and items in each act.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Early Access currently includes 77 characters encompassing the first four available acts, with an additional unlockable endless mode. Act five is up next, releasing in March-April 2024.”

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

“Early Access pricing includes all current and future content updates, including all characters, acts, modes, etc. Pricing will increase on leaving Early Access, but existing owners will receive all future updates.”

About This Game

Time Break Chronicles is a fusion of classic JRPGs and modern Roguelites, with a planned cast of 100 playable classes to find and unlock. Build your team, customize their abilities, and venture into a procedurally generated adventure through space-time and beyond!

Strategic JRPG-like Battle Gameplay

A core element of any JRPG style game is turn-based combat. Time Break Chronicles features strategic turn-based battles, using our custom built engine, against a variety of foes, each requiring different approaches, skills, and maybe an item or two to bail you out. Take care; these enemies are no pushovers. Even the average foes will test your thinking and require a strong team to defeat!

Explore, Adapt, Overcome

Your adventure will not only consist of battles. You will also have to contend with a variety of traps, barriers, secrets, and other encounters as you explore the procedurally generated map. Customize your characters, their abilities, and choose the correct items to help you overcome obstacles.

Customize Your Heroes

Customize your heroes' abilities with a wide variety of equippable relics, that can do anything from modifying attributes to granting new skills. Craft additional relics to round out your strategy.

Build a Town

Even heroes need someplace to rest after a difficult journey. Build up a town over time with multiple buildings and varied upgrades to support your favorite strategies.
