Back to the First Date

Game designer, writer

The game was made for Molyjam 2013 and is based on the Peter Molyneux quote: “I wish I had some time machine and could go back two weeks. You live by your mistakes, for sure.”

Two time travellers, Sofia and Rajar, met at a Doctor Who convention and decided to go on a first date. Sofia subscribes to the vehicle-based mode of time travel (as seen in “Back to the Future”), while Rajar subscribes to the closed-loop model (as seen in “Hot Tub Time Machine”). Their first date didn’t go as planned, since they argued over everything from time travel theory to who pays the bill.

Two weeks later, both of them decide that they can help the date go more smoothly. Help each of them travel back in time to attempt to fix what went wrong so they are not alone in the present. Can you help these two scientists see eye to eye and live happily ever after?
