Today, publisher Secret Item Games and developer Cyberwave announced that Hourglass will be making its way to Switch next week. The first-person puzzle adventure is scheduled for June 30, 2022.
Hourglass has players taking on the role of Aywa, a young adventurer who is traveling to Egypt to find her missing father who is an archeologist and returned from his latest expedition. In the game, they’ll create a time-clone of themselves to solve various puzzles.
Here’s some additional information:
Pyramids are the tombs of the pharaohs. This is what most people believe. But more and more studies raise doubts about this thesis. Scientists found indications for ancient Egypt being far more technologized than we can imagine. Hourglass is set in a scenario in which those assumptions are actually true.
Besides offering an ancient world to explore, Hourglass is mostly about solving various puzzles with a unique core-mechanic. Your ability allows you to record your acting’s for a certain amount of time. After that, time winds back to the beginning of the recording and a time-clone of yourself appears, repeating the actions.
On your adventure, you will have to use this ability in creative ways to get through various areas filled with difficult puzzles.
Your journey leads you to a remote temple where you encounter undiscovered Egyptian technologies and portals to a foreign world. Only by unraveling the secrets of these long lost technologies are you able to solve all puzzles on your quest and eventually find your father.
