A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Time Weaver is a short narrative game where you move Pilgrim, an experiment kept in a lab. Your powers are being tested - your touch moves objects back and forth in their timeline, like a selective time-travel. Your left hand rewinds time, your right hand fast-forwards it.

Who are you? Are you the only experiment in the lab? What did you do - or what are you about to do? Use your powers and put together the clues to sort out the story!

Help us out! Add your level!

The game as it is now is the skeleton structure of a potentially very longer series of puzzle to solve. How would you use these powers to create new levels? What combinations can you think of? Just write us everything - and we’ll add YOUR level to the game!

For Mac Os Catalina users:

We've received some complaints about the MacOs version of the game not running.

The solution to this problem is to extract the zip file with "The Unarchiver" and not the standard program that usually opens these kind of files.

The concept seems interesting. However, I got stuck in "The Station" chapter. I'm not really sure what I'm suppose to do there.

thank you! We don’t wanna make any spoiler of any kind, but if it can help you pass through that level keep in mind what you wish you could do if the train was running late 😉

Ingenious concept, very inspired music and illustrations!  I'd like to see and play more levels!

thx for the feedback! We’re glad that you appreciated it 😍

I love this game. I like logic, irony and the message behind the experiment. I see in this game a fusion of many games from my childhood.

 I also have a criticism: I want the second part of this experiment!

Thanks so much for the feedback! If there will be another version/second part we'll inform you ASAP :)

When you run this game you don't know what you are going to do. Every step teaches you something new. Kind of enigma and logic deduction, it leads you somewhere deep in human universe, from the beginning 'till the end. 

Thanks for the comment! We had the exact same feeling while developing the game, to go deeper inside the story telling :)
Thanks!!
