In Mr. Tic Toc & the Endless City, you play as an antiquarian whose suitcase is actually a time-travelling device. Solving problems by travelling through time and time-crafting, you will get to change the shape of the island and meet different characters from prehistoric times all the way to the 3000s. You can play this beautifully hand-painted watercolor and 3D game on PC, and other platforms (TBD), sometime in 2019.
“What if planting a tree could turn your life upside down, would you do it?” Mr. Tic Toc’s goal is to go home with his family by solving puzzles across time. Thanks to his time-traveling briefcase, that’s as mysterious as Mary Poppins’ as it can also hold many large objects, Mr. Tic Toc will be able to voyage as he pleases across time! For example, he can travel to different times throughout history such as Antiquity, the Middle Ages, the nineteenth century, and the twenty-first century. Set out to recover a rare artifact to become the most famous antiquarian. However, be aware that every action has a consequence.
