Boston, MA, USA, April 9, 2014  - Veteran Independent Game Developer HappyGiant, announce the launch of their new free-to-play cross-platform conspiracy action game “ Ninja Time Pirates”, now live on the iOS store and Steam Greenlight.

The battle for Earth’s future, will be fought in it’s past!

Uncover an epic plot spanning back to World War 2 involving Time Travel, The Philadelphia Experiment, Roswell, The Great Pyramids, Easter Island, Project Montauk, Men in Black, Aliens, Nikola Tesla and every other conspiracy theory under the sun. Travel throughout history as you activate the Time Guardians, famous historical figures called into battle for Earth’s future, and form the “Ninja Time Pirates.” Fight alongside George Washington, Ben Franklin, Blackbeard, Cleopatra, Shaka Zulu and more - against aliens from another universe. Stop them from “Time-Forming” Earth and changing it’s past to alter it’s future!

‘Ninja Time Pirates’ reveals secrets that have been kept for centuries … this is the game your government doesn’t want you to play!” said Michael Levine, HappyGiant Founder and Lead Designer.

Levine did extensive research into the story and science behind the game. He met with and studied the work of Ron Mallett, a leading theoretical physicist studying the real possibility of time travel.

“We took the science of time travel very seriously in it, at least in the theoretical sense. In theory, this game could really happen, or already did!”
