You gotta hand it to developers: sometimes they can sum of their games better than we ever could with clever puns and snarky comments. Defrost Games desribes their upcoming space-time mash-up as “Portal meets Braid on crack, with avatars,” and, well, that’s exactly what it looks like. Set in the year 2057, Project Temporality takes place on a spaceship where a bunch of scientists are shipped to Jupiter under the ruse of astronomical studies, only to discover that they are actually going to work on spacetime-warping experiments.
What does that mean exactly? It looks like we can expect plenty of button puzzles combined with the ability to make copies of your Avatar in different points in time, sort of like some of the later levels in Braid. With its lofty aspirations and gorgeous environments, it’s easy to see why Project Temporality was a Dream.Build.Play semifinalist.
