About This Game

T’was A. D. 2007.
When the fundamentals of Time Traveling were unveiled by the human kind.

Eight years later, Masato Gu, then an aspiring young scholar of the prestigious Suthermore University, lost his beloved fiancee in a rather fishy laboratory accident. To save his lover, the scientist devoted five years to inventing what would later be banned by law - The Time Machine. Return to the past and change the track of history - that was what he had planned.

Yet at the very night when the Time Machine was completed, Masato was drawn into a murder case, which sullied his name as he was framed as the culprit. Racing against time to prove his innocence, Masato finds himself sinking deeper into the center of a giant whirlpool, where the unseen powers try to outwit each other with all their eyes focused on the Time Machine, his precious invention…

Is what happened five years ago really an accident? Can everything be redeemed by returning to the past?
Who is the friend, and who is the foe?
In a game of secrecy and betrayal, will hatred prevail...or love?

Come and behold…hereto lies the striking truth sealed by the Time.

Find yourself becoming Masato Gu - our desperate physicist, and strive to clear an unjust murder charge as you run out of time. Try to eventually succeed and discover the truth about that accident in which you lost your love with the Time Machine!
