Fans of time travel and murder (we know you’re out there) will be pleased to see the newest announcement from Pandasaurus Games: That Time You Killed Me. An abstract game about rival time travellers, it features trippy art from Spanish artist Jor Ros and design from Peter Hayward, the designer of games like Village Pillage, Dracula’s Feast, and The Lady and the Tiger (among others). Check out the full details below:
That Time You Killed Me is a narrative game that introduces new scenarios with unique rules and components as you play. As with any game about mucking about across time, you must play through this content in a strict, unalterable order. Play through 4 different Chapters, each with its own rules and components and increasing difficulty!
You and your opponent are rival time travelers trying to erase each other from history. To prove you are the one true inventor of time travel, you must use your invention to find your enemy in time and murder them – before they get you!
Unfortunately, since your enemy has strewn many copies of themself across the timeline, you may have to do the terrible deed many, many times before it sticks. Just make sure you don’t get erased first!
