Enter the worm hole of time-space frequency and try to catch up with yourself. Fly in sync with your own trail to accelerate yourself to the speed of light and travel back in time by hitting your past self.


Story

After the Black Hadron Collider experiment failed miserably and turned the whole world into dangerous mutants, Doctor Professor Mobius is the only one unaffected by the time disruptions the BHC caused. The only way to fix this is to take the B.I.R.D. into the BHC and travel back in time to stop himself from conducting the experiment in the first place.

Gameplay instructions

  • Move your mouse to steer the plane.
  • Dodge the obstacles.
  • Follow your own trail to speed up.
  • Catch up with yourself by flying into your ghost to win the level.

New update 1.4 Alpha

We updated the game with some tweaks and small features. If you already have the game, download the game again for the following changes:

  • More colors! All levels now have their own colors.
  • Tweaked difficulty. Levels 2, 3 and 4 are a bit easier now.
  • Ghost trail. Your past self (or as we call it, your ghost) now leaves a trail behind so you know if you are close.
  • Your ghost is a bit easier to hit

I've been stuck on level 5 for the longest time, can you please help or tell me what to do?

Hi Exiled King,
Sorry for the long wait. Who knows, you might have already cleared the level.
First of all, congrats on gettting that far :)
The trick lies in setting up a trail for yourself in the first round of the loop. Than try to remember where you went wrong and correct them. Most of all, stay on the trail as much as possible, only that will get you up to speed to catch up with yourself.

This is the raddest, most laser filled game I've played in a while. The music is awesome, the controls are solid, and the cheesy 80s plot is just great. Good job on this!



Hi Skydjinn,

Thank you for the video :DI noticed you mentioned something about downloading the intro music. It is not available for download, but this youtube video (by the creators of the music: Menger&Meester) has the music tracks, the first minute or so is the intro song. It contains the music without the game's SFX.

Ah. Cheers.

I love me some quality music in games, and this definitely has it.

Hey,

very nice game but could you bind the cursor to the game? - it's very hard to play with dual-monitors!

Hey MrJustreborn,

Thank you for your comment. You make a very good point and I will add it to our list of wanted features.

BEST MUSIC FOR A GAME EVER!!! HOPE YOU LIKE THE LET'S PLAY!

Thanks for playing! Glad you had such a good time :D

really fun game and I like the color scheme a lot! Controls are solid and the idea behind this is really neat. Apologies for the weird pauses once in a while in the video, i clicked outside the window, since I played it in windowed mode, and the game paused lol



Thank you for your kind words and for doing a let's play. :-D

Fun game, a bit too harsh at times.

Really fun game, although I would like to see an option to change the camera offset, because right now it feels a bit too close for me. Nevertheless, I really enjoyed it.


PS: Thanks for making me feel like I did drugs.

Thanks. I fear it will be even more difficult to see depth when the camera is moved back further.


Glad we could give you the experience of doing drugs without the harmful effects :p Don't do drugs, kids!

Nice game, really cool mechanics.

Level 7 is where it gets real fucked up...

Sometimes I think the levels take too long and it's frustrating to get to be like 10 meters away from the ghost ship and lose. Then u have to play for like 5 mins again.

NICE GAME REGARDLESS, ADD MORE MUSIC !

Thanks for the feedback! It shouldn't take you 5 minutes to get up to speed, though... are you sure you're driving close enough to your trail?

Oh, and if you enjoyed the music, send the audio guys some love and they might agree to make another track!

Awesome game. Love it. Love that music. On level 3 i first die.

Thank you! Make sure to follow menger&meester for more :-)

Would be great if I could get it to not load fullscreen. Framerate is not great on intel 915 on a Linux laptop at 1440p, and I figure a smaller window would work better.

Let me try to find a solution for you. I will get back to you.

EDIT:
First off, you can try to hold the alt-key when starting the game. A resolution dialog should pop up.

Otherwise hat you could try (while we try to get the grip on a more definite solution) is try to use the following command line arguments:
-screen-fullscreen
Override the default full-screen state. This must be 0 or 1.
-screen-height
Override the default screen height. This must be an integer from a supported resolution (e.g. 720).
-screen-width
Override the default screen width. This must be an integer from a supported resolution (e.g. 1280).

So run it with -screen-fullscreen 0 -screen-height 720 -screen-width 1280

If you are not familiar with command line options, let me know.

Thanks! I forgot about alt for unity games!

Thanks for the review Syphon, had a blast watching it!

Yeah you can beat it, just follow your trail as good as possible to speed up (even faster)!
