Defying time with Chronology
Chronology: Time Changes Everything is a steampunk themed, puzzle-platformer developed by Bedtime Digital Games, an Indie game developer based in Denmark. It is available on Android, IOS, Windows PC/Phone and Steam (download links below). There are three free chapters available to play before you need to purchase and unlock the full game.
Play as The Inventor to solve the mystery of his missing memories and behind the present state of the world. Through trial and error, players use time to switch behind the past and present and manipulate objects to overcome obstacles. There are no limits to dying – if you’re anything like me, you’ll appreciate that little gimmick.
The first thing that popped for me were the graphics. They paint such a vibrant and engaging world for the game that they just add further to the gameplay. While the story is more of a mystery, the flashback animations give hints to what transpired. Furthermore, the voice acting also adds another layer of depth to the story.
During gameplay, players must overcome puzzles to move forward. The puzzles can be somewhat challenging to solve but once the completed, it’s very satisfactory. To me, there’s nothing better than the feeling after solving a puzzle.
The only negative aspect of the game that I found were the sudden video ads that would pop up. There was no warning and it was a bit jarring. While it isn’t necessarily a negative, there’s also the fact that if you quit during the chapter, you’ll have to start from the beginning of that level, as there are no checkpoints.[wp-review id=”2396″]
