Games always pop up like they come out of time jumps. Chucklefish has announced that it is releasing the game Timespinner to the Switch next week June 4th. The time-travelling action-platformer is inspired by games from the 90’s in the same genre. You can find a trailer and more info below.
Timespinner is a beautifully crafted story-driven adventure, and an ode to classic 90s action platformers. Follow Lunais, a head-strong young timekeeper, on her quest for revenge against the empire that killed her family. Use time-bending powers to explore a vast, connected world, and change fate itself.
With her family murdered in front of her and the ancient Timespinner device destroyed, Lunais is suddenly transported into a unknown world, stranded with seemingly no hope of return. Using her power to control time, Lunais vows to take her revenge on the evil Lachiem Empire, but sometimes the course of history isn’t quite as black and white as it seems…
