IT’S TODAY! FULL GAME RELEASE!



Hi to all of you!

In the beginning, we want to apologize that we haven’t been very active for 2 weeks, but we worked hard to deliver the best content for you! Secondly, we want to thank you so much for your effort in helping to upgrade our game! We’ve received a huge amount of positive comments from you via all communication channels! Also, some of you gave us very valuable feedback about a few problematic issues, which of course have been fixed or changed! Once again, thank you very much!

After long months of hard work, we can finally release the full version of Frankenstein: Beyond the Time! Now the story and is completed and has a really awesome and ass-kicking ending! You really need to get through the whole gameplay and you’ll find out dozens of immersive and mind blown content!

Take a look at how awesome brand new features we have prepared to make the full version even more immersive and complex:

1. Yes, yes yes! Finally, you can play a game without a “To be continued” screen in the end!
Now you can take a chance to defeat the Monster in a final Boss Fight! We don’t want to give away details - we want you to discover this huge feature and experience totally new quality in VR games!

2. There is a new character in the game!
Be prepared to meet Lady Elizabeth! Ekhm, actually, her ghost! The bride of Victor Frankenstein who after learning more about the research and work of her beloved, fell into a frenzy and lost herself mentally. In our beyond the time universe, a stay in a psychiatric hospital led Elizabeth to suicide ... now as a ghost she haunts the Victorian estate and wants to disturb the continuation of Dr. Frankenstein's crazy work! She's very sensitive to sound so try to be quiet. Under no circumstances don't make any noise and don't drop any item on the ground. You will evoke her and she's very grim! She feeds herself with our time!

3. Enhanced side story!
During the whole game, you can come across over 55 letters and notes written by Dr. Frankenstein. You can now fall into the philosophical journey to get to know the thoughts of the doctor, his vision of time control and the creation of life. It’s a journey into the depths of morals, ethics and the problems of scientists and thinkers in the nineteenth century.

4. Interactive items!
You can now easily break glass objects, destroy wooden elements of the environment like barrels or barricades, to get to new places in the Doctor's estate. Besides, every item has been granted with sounds!

5. Eye-gor is now more helpful!
You can use Eye-gor’s mechanic arms as an inventory to store found items! More hands mean more fun!

6. The Slingshot!
Every adventure needs a weapon to defeat yourself, also in our game, you have to use a slingshot to induce a noise and direct Elizabeth’s Ghost to the place you want her to be! You can also shot a bullet to the object to break them. Use it as your advantage!

Of course, we improved efficiency, refined objects’ details, added more environment interactive items, fixed bugs and performance issues.

We hope you’ll enjoy this full version and we’re still open to receive more and more feedback from you! Thank all of you that you actively took part in this project. We won't abandon this project and will support it all time long, so you can for sure expect regularly uploaded patches and updates.

Just play and have fun!

About This Game

After two hundred years, Doctor Frankenstein’s legacy will reach a whole new level!


Now everyone can go on a discovery quest taking place in a Victorian mansion, where the task is to solve the greatest mystery of Dr. Frankenstein. The game makes innovative use of Virtual Reality with a well-known hidden object model and crafting simulations combined with the fight against time. Placing these mechanisms in a world inspired by the novels about Dr. Frankenstein provides a unique gameplay in a dynamic world full of adventures. The more we learn about the mad scientist's experiment, the more frightening and mysterious the story becomes.

The game is completely immersive thanks to detailed surroundings. From a huge whale’s skeleton to a tiny vial - everything is highly refined to bring about the most realistic of experiences. What’s more, weather conditions affect lighting and reflections, resulting in a dynamic environment becoming more and more dramatic further into stages of gameplay. The scenario and main characters are only based on the novel by Mary Shelley and combined with our own original ideas. Rather than showing the theatrical version of Frankenstein’s story we have created our own, beyond the time, universe.

Key Features

  • epic Boss Fight
  • interactive characters
  • enriched plot with a philosophical journey
  • special defensive weapon
  • crazy time loop - fighting against time
  • ca. 4 hours of gameplay
  • thousands of highly-refined and interactive objects with sounds
  • hundreds of square meters of scenes
  • crafting simulations
  • dynamic environment with changing weather conditions
  • original soundtrack
  • dozens of monologues explaining the plot and building suspense throughout a gameplay

    The Story


    What if I told you I could take you to a place like no other? No, not a world of fantasy or a faraway land. I can show you a place where the ethics and restraints of social rules do not apply. Where your mind and imagination can be infinite, where your deeds are not subject to judgment. It’s all about time. Time doesn’t care about anything. It’s indifferent to humanity. It passes aimlessly. Why? Because only we, humans, perceive it this way. But here… here it has a life of its own, it creates its unique world. A place where time is only a moving image of the surroundings. Home to the most powerful Artifact and the place where the Monster is born.



    Take part in the discovery quest of Dr. Frankenstein’s mansion, where all the items, furnishings and decorations remain intact after the his death. Your task is to solve Dr. Frankenstein's greatest mystery. In many places around the house you will find old notes and sketches, which, together, will show you the way to master the time. The more you learn about Dr. Frankenstein's experiment, the more frightening and mysterious the story becomes. The Artifact has created a time loop and it constantly affects the surroundings - everything you move, returns to its previous spot after the loop closes. The only way to break the loop is to finish the current stage before the Artifact activates again.



    Abandon all understanding of time as known to humanity. Go on an adventure in a place where nothing changes unless you make it. When you get there, your senses will suddenly stop. Dr. Frankenstein’s deranged thoughts will haunt your mind. The only thing that will matter is to finish his last masterpiece. People crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who actually do. Become the time master and carry on Dr. Frankenstein’s legacy!
