Rewind time and play alongside your past selves. Plan out unique strategies and use multiplayer mechanics, all while playing solo – or co-op!
Montreal, Canada – October 7th, 2021 – Autoexec Games’ upcoming time-bending action-RTS hybrid Timemelters has met its Kickstarter goal, allowing the developers to expand on the game’s scope. This means Autoexec can fund extra features, such as a Challenge Mode that offers extra replay value. Voice acting, extra language options, more playable characters, controller support, and even console ports, should fans smash those stretch goals prior to the Kickstarter campaign ending in 48 hours on October 9th.
Those who pledge will receive rewards including their name in the game’s credits, beta tests, and even the ability to come up with and name a Steam Achievement. By getting involved now, players are afforded an opportunity to leave feedback on what changes they’d like to see.
“I can’t thank people enough for supporting Timemelters on Kickstarter,” said Autoexec Founder and CEO Vincent Blanchard. “It’s been such a passion project of mine for the past three years and I’m so excited to be able to make it everything I always dreamed it would be. I really couldn’t have done this without all your support, so from the bottom of my heart, thank you, thank you, thank you!”
If you’d like to try the Timemelters demo for yourself, it’s available right now on Steam.
Timemelters is an indie game where you can rewind time and play alongside your past selves. It allows you to plan out crazy never-before-seen strategies and use multiplayer game mechanics (aggro, support, etc.) all while playing solo. And if that’s not wild enough, the entire 20-mission campaign is playable in two-player co-op!
Directed by Sang-Froid: Tales of Werewolves co-creator Vincent Blanchard, Timemelters is a completely original action-RTS hybrid that puts players in the role of Teagan, a witch trying to stop a mysterious undead uprising from taking over her village in the dark and corrupted land of Hogendale, which is loosely inspired by the events that occurred in Scotland in the 16th century. Playing from a behind the shoulder third-person perspective, you’re given a host of magical powers ranging from rewinding time to play alongside your past self, raising the dead, recruiting trees to wallop foes, erecting walls, blasting baddies with energy beams, and setting portals to teleport around the map.
Timemelters hosts a huge menagerie of strategic powers that combine immediate third-person character action games with RTS and tower defense gameplay, as you zip around the map setting up defenses using a mix of AI companions, mind-controlled foes, and echoes of your past self. You’ll have to use your full arsenal of magical powers if you’re to protect Hogendale!
