Yes! It's been a long process but I'm aiming to release the full first part sometime later this year :)
This is unfortunately a known bug that some people have experienced. I might try to update the prologue sometime with a fix but it might take a while for me to do. Based on bug reports that I've received, it's possible you could eventually get it to work if you press Z a bunch of times in a row, though that's obviously an annoying thing to have to do.
The beach isn't accessible in the prologue.
Thanks for playing!
Discover the unique real-time mechanics and anti-capitalist premise of Time Bandit in this Prologue Chapter in the style of a classic PS1 demo.
Time Bandit is a dark life sim where everything takes time. Place down a robot to push a box for you, for example, and it will take an actual half an hour to finish. By saving the game and coming back periodically to make progress, you are invited to explore your habits, rituals, and experience of time in general, particularly as it relates to work and exploitation.
I've been working on Time Bandit for a long time, and I'm excited to finally be able to share the beginning of the game with people, especially as it deals with themes of technological automation, economic crisis, environmental catastrophe, colonialism, and radical change.
If you want to show your support, you can wishlist the full game on Steam. You can also join the Time Bandit community's Discord to share your feedback on the prologue chapter. Thanks!!
