To do this, in 15 minute runs you explore a hand-drawn world to recover valuable relics, map the caves and gather clues to solve puzzles and prevent history from repeating itself forever.

NotesAccessibility Notes

If you die you just lose a bit of time rather than lives or progress, in this way the game is unfailable.

The game displays a marker and indication of the required button to highlight elements that can be interacted with, although this doesn't pop-up until you are near to them.

When you solve a puzzle or get something into place, the game displays a "Clack" word on the screen and makes a sound to indicate success.
