Ranked from 37 ratings. Score is adjusted from raw score by the median number of ratings per game in the jam.

How does your game fit the theme?
The actions you did in the past are joined to the actions your past self replays when you travel back in time... at least, they're joined until you interrupt your past self ;)

I love this cool idea puzzle. But, I can't understand the mechanics perfectly...


I really like games with time mechanics. This one is really special.


Cool idea!

It took me a while to figure out how to use the clock to read the clones from other timelines, maybe that could be telegraphed a bit more clearly? Once I got that, and the fact that my clones will stop if I interrupt them, it made the second level solution more apparent.


Couldn't figure out how to beat it, but really love the concept! The art and music are super polished as well. Looking forward to the post-jam version!


I loved the style and concept, but it's a little confuse, after a lot of time I passed level 2 (and I don't know how), I couln't pass level 3, but learned a little of the mechanics (but it's still confuse to me), I think you should made some easier levels at the start, implementing and explaining those things slowly, but I liked the style, I think the pixel style was a perfect fit for this game, after all, I liked the game.

Couldn't understand the game in the 5 minutes I've played it. I read the description, but when I press Z or C and then move, nothing happened.

oh hmm, sorry! I know the tutorial text isn’t the clearest.

To get it to work, you need to have another dave onscreen and currently in the swirly-blue animation state, and then you need to press Z, hold it down, use the left/right arrow keys, and then release Z. hope that helps!

edit: here’s a gif:


Looks nice. Original. Hard to understand at start. I crashed it xD

runtime error line 1342 tab 0
assert(self.tree.parent == nil)

First time see so nicely embedded crash log in the game. I thought that it's a part of the game for a moment xD


oh no D: welp, I’ll look into it. thanks for playing!


cool puzzles! I love the aesthetic of it, but it seems like theres a steep learning curve to get over to beat it. Great job :)


I beat it. The mechanic is very cool, although the ability that can be triggered with Z may make things too easy in comparison with not having it. Once I understood that ability I breezed through the last two levels quickly.

Restarting levels is a bit too cumbersome. 

But it's an adventure to go from not understanding the game at all to being able to solve every level. Combined with the excellent presentation (including the music) this is currently the best entry I've seen so far (note: I basically only play HTML5 puzzle entries, so this is a partial view of things).


The art style and music are nice. It feels like a cool concept, but it was a bit too complex for me - I think it could do with some more explanation, unless I missed something.


My small brain isn't enough to beat this game.

Pretty cool though!!


Some really mind bending puzzles here, and also a really cool concept for theme


This game is way too smart for me!


Cool sounds and art! 


I like the music.


Wow! What a unique take on time travel, I can't say I've ever seen a game do something like this before. I'm still trying to wrap my head around it, but I absolutely love this mechanic. The art looks very nice as well.
