Daedalic announced that the Caligari Games developed puzzle time travel adventure The Great Perhaps will launch on PC-via Steam on August 14.
The Great Perhaps features both pre and post-apocalyptic adventure themes as the players assume the role of a cosmonaut who has returned to an Earth that is pretty much a wasteland. However, they’ll be armed with a mysterious lantern that can reveal and transport them between timelines in an instant. This feature will be used through the game to solve puzzles and avoid the dangers that lurk in this new Earth. Hopefully, by making discoveries about the cataclysm that occurred on the planet, a way to reverse these events will emerge.
During gameplay, players will unlock the mystery behind the apocalypse by solving puzzles. The game is told through an innovating way of storytelling through the environments to get a better idea of the past and present. Characters will be met along the way who each have their own personalities and backstories. Each timeline in the game has its own soundtrack that changes in the hand-drawn 2D world.
The publisher released a new trailer to give players a look at the game’s world and characters as well as the puzzle mechanics that revolve around time travel.
