What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Seconds to Square is still a game in development that we'd love to polish with the help of players. It's missing several features that rely on earlier mechanics being nailed down through playtesting. We believe players can help us with that.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“As the team has diminished in size over the past several months, development is moving at a much slower pace. However, to get the game to where we want it will take about year.”

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

“We are looking to have Linux support, an original soundtrack, and 12 solid levels that take the player through 4 seasons of a minimalist forest.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version is missing Linux support, a full soundtrack, and only has 1 level for each season.”

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

“The game will remain free even after Early Access.”

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

“Requesting player feedback on issues regarding game mechanics, art, and level design.”

About This Game

Have you ever been bored on your desktop drawing selection boxes with no real purpose, but found it fun? Seconds to Square is a momentum-based action-platformer that takes this motion and turns it into a time manipulation mechanic!

Drawing boxes in Seconds to Square works exactly like selecting folders on your desktop! Draw a fast box by left clicking to augment your run speed and jump height or draw a slow box by right clicking to dodge projectiles!

The goal of Seconds to Square is to race against the clock as you draw boxes using left and right clicks to speed up or slow down time.
