Posted: 22 months ago, last updated 5 weeks ago.

Author: @GeekDadGamer and Jo Robertson.


Played simultaneously with a friend, this is a narrative-driven puzzle game where you must escape an eerie world created by a clockmaker. It's unusual because each player's game is slightly different and must be combined to solve the puzzles. Through talking and teamwork you must work together to progress before the time runs out.
