Small Update: Version 1.026

Today's update brings a small bug fix and two new Passwords for two new Speedrun Modes!

  • Fixed a bug where "Quick Exiting" out of the Use Item menu did not apply the health/aura restoration after using a healing item under the following conditions: a) did not cap your health, b) you had more items remaining, and c) you remained in the Yes/No prompt.
  • Added 2 new Passwords to the game to allow improved Speed Running experiences.

The two Speedrun modes are:
  • Speedrun Alpha (PW: SPEEDRUNALPH) Skip the tutorial, all chests are rare chests, and all enemies that have a 2nd equipable drop will always drop that item.
  • Speedrun Beta (PW: SPEEDRUNBETA) Skip the tutorial, capped levels (Lunais, Familiars, and Orbs), cleared Use Item Inventory, full stock of (Warp Shards, Hi-Ethers, and 1 Lachiemi Star), and "Lost Items" have been removed. Keep in mind that this mode will not unlock new items and instead will use the save file's obtained items and equipped loadouts instead.

In order to activate a Speed Run, do the following:
  • Load the save file that you wish to convert to a Speed Run file.
  • Open the Password menu and enter the desired Password
  • Save the game
  • Return to the Save Select screen in the Main Menu
  • Start a New Game+ with that save file (a special 'A' or 'B' indicator will be on the save file)

Please note that activating any Speedrun mode will disable all future Feats/Achievements for that Save File!!

PS: Sorry to the DRM free crowd! I promise that if this build is stable I'll push this build to Humble/GOG! XD

“Aspiring to one of the best 2D platformers ever made is a noble goal, and Timespinner comes closer to the mark than almost anything I've ever seen.”

About This Game

With her family murdered in front of her and the ancient Timespinner device destroyed, Lunais is suddenly transported into a unknown world, stranded with seemingly no hope of return. Using her power to control time, Lunais vows to take her revenge on the evil Lachiem Empire, but sometimes the course of history isn’t quite as black and white as it seems...

Explore an intricate, connected world with beautifully drawn and detailed pixel art environments. Traverse between the barren present and luscious past of Lachiem, collecting elemental magic orbs and combining their power to destroy enemies with blades and spells. Befriend mysterious creatures called Familiars, such as the adorable dream dragon Meyef, and train them to aid you in battle. Test your skills and timing with intense boss battles, and you venture forth to take on the Emperor himself!

  • Stop time to evade foes, use them as platforms and solve puzzles
  • Discover a lovingly-crafted, beautiful pixel art world and uncover a rich story universe
  • Clobber enemies with Magic Orbs found throughout the world, which grow in power the more you use them
  • Befriend mysterious Familiars and train them to aid you in battle
  • Take on challenging boss battles with an emphasis on skill, timing and dodging
