TimeMelters – Launch Trailer


Hijack History As A Time-Warping Witch and Freeze The Future With A Friend In Full Online Cooperative Campaign; PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X Versions Count Down To Launch Later This Year

Montreal, Canada, February 28, 2024 — Independent developer AutoExec Games, a Canadian studio of three inspired by classic games and genre-defining gameplay, has announced that award-winning strategy and hero defense hybrid TimeMelters has launched its 1.0 version on PC via Steam today. PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X versions will follow later this year. Grand Winner at the Ubisoft Indie Contest 2022, Gold Winner of Best Indie Game at NYX 2023, and winner of the Technological Innovation Award at MIGS 2023, TimeMelters features a unique time-shifting mechanic that allows players to rewind the clock and fight alongside their past selves to prevent doomsday after it’s happened. Scheme strategies and explore co-op game mechanics like aggro or support while playing solo. Better yet, enlist the help of a real-life buddy for free with the Friend Pass – only one copy of the game is required!

Rewind, fast forward, and pause version 1.0’s new revamped missions with spellbinding abilities on your own or as a duo. Experience real-time action-strategy gameplay across distinct single-player and co-op campaigns that twist time in never-before-seen ways. Solve puzzles, defeat bosses, and defend massive territories to gradually enhance your magic with the skill tree. Think fast with 40 mind-bending challenges and top the leaderboards in TimeMelters’ speedrun mode. The past, present, and future are in flux. Harness the hourglass before time slips away.

“Back in the day, PC owners would need to enter a command line, c:\autoexec.bat, to boot up their games,” says Vincent Blanchard, CEO at AutoExec Games. “Our studio was named after the sense of marvel we felt after entering that command line and sinking into classics like Diablo and King’s Quest for the first time. These were titles that revolutionized entire genres with their fresh, captivating gameplay. We crafted TimeMelters over the course of five years as an attempt to recapture the same awe we experienced way back then, as well as offer veteran gamers something new, challenging, and fun to chew on. We hope they have just as much fun playing TimeMelters as we had creating it, and look forward to bringing this time-twisting adventure to consoles later in 2024.”
