Publisher The Quantum Astrophysicists Guild and developer tinyDino Games plan to release their fantasy shooter, The Ambassador: Fractured Timelines, on PC in Q3 2020.
In this time-manipulating twin-stick shooter, players will be utilizing a unique battle system the combines constant action along with the ability to temporarily slow time. Using “completely accurate medieval spell casting and swordplay,” this game lets players strategically engage their enemies through evasion, repositioning, and timing.
As the story of Gregor, the last of the Ambassadors of Time, unfolds, players will learn why he is the last and his comrades are all dead. By blasting and slashing his way through an enemy army and avenging his fallen colleagues will Gregor then uncover the truth behind the attack on the Eternal Fellowship in the capital city of Tamaris.
We like to think of it as a mashup of all the indie games we enjoyed while learning how to make games ourselves. Because of this, you will notice elements of Braid, Crawl, The Binding of Isaac, and Nuclear Throne all tossed together into a new and shiny twin-stick shooter.tinyDino Games on how The Ambassador: Fractured Timelines was conceived
