Montreal, Canada - September 23rd, 2021 – Autoexec Games has created a press only demo for its upcoming time-bending action-RTS hybrid Timemelters. Find out why Eurogamer said of it "I cannot wait to play more. This wonderfully weird thing has classic written all over it,” and PC Invasion said “The mechanics are so clever and unique that they blew my mind.”

Directed by Sang-Froid: Tales of Werewolves co-creator Vincent Blanchard, Timemelters is a completely original action-RTS hybrid that offers both single-player and co-op play throughout its entire 20-mission campaign. You play as a witch, Teagan, trying to stop a mysterious undead uprising from taking over her village in the dark and corrupted land of Hogendale, which is loosely inspired by the events that occurred in Scotland in the 16th century.

Playing from a behind the shoulder third-person perspective, you’re given a host of magical powers ranging from rewinding time to play alongside your past self, raising the dead, recruiting trees to wallop foes, erecting walls, blasting baddies with energy beams, and setting portals to teleport around the map.

Timemelters hosts a huge menagerie of strategic powers that combine immediate third-person character action games with RTS and tower defense gameplay, as you zip around the map setting up defenses using a mix of AI companions, mind-controlled foes, and echoes of your past self. You’ll have to use your full arsenal of magical powers if you’re to protect Hogendale!

Timemelters is currently on Kickstarter looking to gain funds that will enable the developers to add more features, such as a Challenge Mode that offers extra replay value, voice acting, extra language options, more playable characters, controller support, and even console ports.

Timemelters is an ambitious genre hybrid full of unique powers that merge time travel, spellcasting, tower defense, and all out action,” said Autoexec Founder and CEO Vincent Blanchard. “It’s a lot to wrap your head around, so I wanted to make a demo that gently walks players through its ins and outs. My hope is that once people try it for themselves, they’ll understand just how much fun it is. And if they pledge to its Kickstarter, that would be great too!”
