Reviews for Project Temporality

This is not the first game to make use of rewinding time or creating clones, but Project Temporality does so in a novel way. Set in an off-planet research station, your character is testing a suit which allows you to rewind time. By rewinding, you can undo mistakes or create a clone which will perform the exact actions you just did before rewinding. You make use of this ability to solve puzzles, mainly by doing something like standing on a button to unlock a door, and then rewinding time so your clone stands on the button while you progress. Each area tracks the time taken and amount of rewinding done, so there is replayability to perform more efficiently if you choose. There is a maximum number of clones allowed in each area and increasingly complicated puzzles to solve
Notes left by fellow researchers expand on the background of the project and the testing station, including their doubts on the morality of the work. There is a sinister undertone to the game that I find very intriguing. I always find that small bits of story like this make a fun concept even more interesting. Overall, it is an enjoyable puzzle game with a great concept.
