In Hourglass you can create a time-clone of yourself to solve challenging puzzles. You will play as Aywa, a young adventurer who is travelling to Egypt to find her missing father – an archaeologist, who never returned from his latest expedition.
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 of 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 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.
