Indie micro studio osao games today announced that the mind-bending puzzle adventure platform game, nominated for the Nordic Indie Sensation award for 2014, Chronology, is now available for download through Steam. Mixing classical fantasy with mechanical retro-futuristic elements, Chronology places players into a beautiful universe inspired by Hayao Miyazaki where time must be manipulated and controlled to move past and future in order to fix the present. Chronology is now available for USD 9.99 / EUR 9.99 from Steam with 20% off for the first week.
“Chronology began with a very simple concept and has grown organically to become a truly fun, challenging and beautiful experience that we are proud to finally share with gamers throughout the world,” said Niels Højgaard Sørensen, Game Director at Osao Games. “It’s taken a lot of time, energy and love to launch this game, and we know that fans will appreciate the work we’ve put in to make it unique and engaging”.
Our story begins, as the inventor wakes to discover the world has ended, and has no memory of his past. After finding a time travel device that can take him back in time, his memory slowly returns… With the help of a snail, who can stop time, the inventor sets out to fix the future by changing the past. Players run and jump through puzzles, using the time travel device, that moves the player from a beautiful idyllic past to a dark dystopian future.
Chronology has had a turbulent history after its original developer Progressive Media, closed its doors in January 2014 after the game has been Greenlit by Steam community. A small dedicated team of ex-developers, turned indie and opened osao games to continue the development of Chronology. Scheduled for release on multiple platforms through 2014, Chronology has already been selected as one of the eight finalists for the Nordic Game Indie Sensation Award.
