Description
Release date: 2015
Tic Toc is a time travelling rogue-like game where time is your sandbox. With a timeline that remembers everything, the possibilities are endless.

Tic Toc gives you complete control of time through an interactive timeline where everything can change in a heartbeat. Taking the best elements from games like Spelunky, Populous and Scribblenauts, the Tic Toc experience is unlike any you have played before.

Every action you take impacts everything that happens in the future. Your time travel watch lets you go to the future and back again to witness the consequences of your actions, potentially offering great rewards.

Dynamic Timeline
  • The world remembers - everything you do in the past will influence future events. Did you leave a laser rifle with the cavemen? Expect that continent to evolve at a faster rate than the others...if they don't destroy themselves first.
  • Nothing out of place - every building will remain where you left it as you travel backwards through time - but don't expect your impact in a timeline not to influence what happens when you travel forward again.
  • Multiple continents - different continents will evolve independently. Intelligence leads to better technology. Good health can lead to overpopulation. Religion gives people faith. Anything could result in war between nations.
  • Family trees - was Morty's grandfather the inventor of something amazing 50 years ago? Finding those blueprints could be useful...
  • Dynamic landscape - trees grow around you, buildings come and go, the world evolves and gravestones will commemorate the dead.
  • Natural disasters - asteroid fields can eradicate life, volcanoes will erupt and ice ages will halt development.

Questing
  • Dynamic - quests will generate based on major events caused in the timeline. Of course, if there is a quest you really want to do, you can always make those big events happen yourself...
  • Characters - people you meet usually have something interesting to say. Does Professor Professorson study the ancient egyptians? Surely she would reward someone who could bring her a pristine artifact.
  • Make your own path - do you cry at watching the dinosaurs die? Save them with futuristic technology and witness the results.

Anomalies
  • Hunters through time - anomalies are other time travellers hunting you down. Time travelling a great number of times, especially over a short era, will attract their attention. You had better be prepared.
  • Hunted becomes the hunter - with the right equipment, it is possible to hunt down anomalies yourself - your fellow time travellers are bound to have some amazing loot from all throughout time.

Crafting
  • Blueprints - scattered throughout the timeline are plans and schematics for rare and powerful devices. These are often given as rewards by other characters, but more stubborn characters may need to be dealt with differently.
  • Mining - mining for rare materials is essential to build the items in blueprints. A few minerals short? Time travel back and mine it again - just be on the look out for anomalies.

I'm voting for it because I like the clear cut way you presented your concept. I feel that this game can go far. I really like the timeline idea. But you seem to just know where to go and how to get things done. Hopefully there are many ways to get information about the current time, and more detailed ways to tell exactly what time you are at.

@Sirknobbles10k We are taking some time to polish up the game, taking on board all the feedback we have received. Once we are happy with what we have we will relaunch the Kickstarter...it will just take a bit longer than originally anticipated.
