Description

Causality is a puzzle game about manipulating time, altering the sequence of events and changing the outcome of each level.

Set across strange and alien landscapes, help a group of stranded astronauts find a route to safety. Travel through time, work with your past selves and solve paradoxes as you take on this uniquely challenging puzzler.

Each level represents a brief but hazardous moment in time. Levels are completed by guiding each astronaut to an exit that matches their colour, within a limited time frame. When all astronauts reach an exit the level is complete.
In each level the player has complete control over time with the ability to move it forwards and backwards. They can also influence the pattern of events by changing the path followed by each astronaut. The key to success lies in picking the right path, but also at the right point in time.
Complexity increases as players have to start thinking about avoiding potential perils, and how the path of one astronaut could influence the path of another, for better or worse. Later in the game time travel is introduced, allowing the astronauts to travel backwards in time and interact with their past selves. This twist gives players a new tool to play with and a new spin on existing mechanics, but players must also avoid creating paradoxes!

History

We started work on Causality in 2014, and have been working on it part-time between other jobs ever since. It's our first fully independent project, previously we've worked on games incollaboration with a variety of clients, including the Science Museum in London for our previous release 'Transmission'.

Created by a team of two based in London (UK): Luke Holland (Game Design + Code) and Jon Mallinson (Game Design + Art). With sound design by the awesome Jocelyn Reyes.
