'TimeMelters' Gets PC Release Date, Comes To PS5 And Xbox Series X|S Later In 2024 - Trailer

TimeMelters is a real-time tactical strategy/adventure game featuring a unique game mechanic which allows the players to go back in time and fight alongside themselves.

Strategy... Witches... and Time Travel!

After surviving the flames of condemnation, players will take control of Teagan, a witch who only recently discovered her vast new abilities, as she ventures across the Kingdom of Hogendale, cleansing the countryside of the evil that has consumed it and clearing her name. Take on missions alone or with a friend in online co-op through a full 20 mission campaign and an extra 40 challenge missions that can be unlocked as the player goes through the story.

Creation is stricken. Trees and beasts sicken, wither, and are reborn as shrieking, malevolent shades. The dead claw their way out of the poisoned earth to swarm mindlessly over the land. No living man or woman is safe from their dripping talons. King Ionracas, a man who has dreamt of everlasting peace for his home, has come to blame witches for this unnatural stream of torment and misery.

Rewind time to create Echoes and play alongside your past selves: raise the dead, make trees come alive to wallop foes, or activate Breaches to teleport around the map. Use strategy and wit to defeat your enemies and work with several versions of yourself, or friends in multiplayer missions!

Canadian developer AutoExec Games announced that TimeMelters will launch its v1.0 on February 28, 2024 for PC (Steam), with PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X versions to follow later this year.

Version 1.0 will include brand new, never-before-seen missions as well as single-player and co-op campaigns, the latter of which can be enjoyed with a buddy for free with the Friend Pass (which means only one copy of the game is required!). Plan and execute strategies solo or as a duo in real time. Solve puzzles, take down bosses, defend huge territories, and more in unique ways to upgrade spells and unlock powerful magic embedded in the skill tree. Embark on a quest through time that’ll fast forward, rewind, and pause players in their tracks.

To celebrate the momentous occasion, AutoExec Games has prepared a brand-new tutorial gameplay trailer that showcases the intricate gameplay mechanics and captivating features that TimeMelters has to offer. The trailer provides both newcomers and longtime fans with an in-depth look at the game's unique aspects and strategic depth.

“Call us old-fashioned, but our humble studio of three believes gameplay is king,” says Vincent Blanchard, CEO at AutoExec Games. “When we started working on TimeMelters five years ago, we wanted to craft an innovative title that evoked the same sense of wonder we experienced when discovering classics like Ogre Battle, Dune, Dark Omen and Quest For Glory. To get there, we created something entirely new, with never-before-seen mechanics and game rules. We can’t wait for players to enjoy TimeMelters to the fullest with its Version 1.0 launch later this month, and with the game’s console release later this year.”

Key Features:

  • Unique Time Shift game mechanic: rewind time and fight alongside yourself, not as an AI, but in a fully deterministic fashion. Plan out truly custom strategies and play to your own style!
  • Hybrid Action-Strategy gameplay: Plan a strategy and execute it all in real time, across more than 20 distinct missions! Puzzle maps, boss fights, escort missions, survival, etc. -- each mission has distinct objectives and brings unique twists on the time travel mechanic!
  • Co-op mode: Play the full campaign with a friend online!
  • Startling storyline: Engaging campaign with all the twists, turns, nooks, crannies and what-the-bleep-just-happened moments you would -- and should -- expect from a story based on Time Travel!
  • Challenge Mode : Test your brain power with 40 mind bending, 4D thinking challenges!
  • Skill Tree: Choose how your spells upgrade -- yielding ever more powerful magic and intricate build choices!
  • Original Soundtrack: Sumptuous, expansive soundtrack filled with epic moments (and a few earworms)!

Currently available through Steam Early Access, TimeMelters is coming to PC (Steam) on February 28, 2024, followed by PS5 and Xbox Series X|S later in 2024.
