Nothing good ever comes from trying to mess with time... unless, of course, it happens in an adventure game. In indie developer Sergey Romanko's Midnight Quest, a time-based disaster once again is the catalyst for puzzling adventurey goodness, as we'll soon see when the game releases next month.
Midnight Quest puts players in the role of a young man assisting a "famous scientist to conduct experiments with time." Tragically, an accident causes an explosion that kills the scientist. Now, "all alone in the middle of the night inside of a country house," it's up to you to fix this mess and even save your mentor, but you'll need to travel through time to do it.
With a charming third-person, hand-drawn art style and traditional point-and-click controls, Midnight Quest drops players into the early 20th century. As the protagonist continues to get himself into a series of "unexpected situations," the only way forward is to solve a variety of puzzles and interact with the "friendly and not so friendly characters" along the way.
There's not long to wait for Midnight Quest, even without the benefit of a time machine, as the game is due to launch on Steam for Windows PC on January 16th.
