Default The Way Home - Incredible Time Travel Arcade Adventure HD [UNIVERSAL] [UPCOMING]

Hey, everyone! I'm half of MoWOW, a two man game dev studio and we're working hard to finish our latest game: "The Way Home" for iPhone, iPad and iPod.

So what is it about?

The game is a blend between a simple mechanic we find both fun and challenging and a story about time travelling very similar to the Quantum Leap series.

Mechanics

The hero is always on the move, running from left to right, bouncing off the edges of time and life of the person that he is trapped in. The goal is to make all the other people on the level happy so that he can jump in time again(hopefully home).

The game will feature 10 stories and 70 levels to start with plus Game Center leaderboards and high scores.
Besides going through the levels to read and discover all the stories, there is also the extra challenge of getting the shortest time.


Where are we now?

We are working hard to get the game finished but you can get a general idea of the game from the screenshots and video below. Bare in mind that they are not the final polished versions.

We will update with new visuals and videos as we get closer to the release date.

P.S. You can become a fan on The Way Home Facebook page!

We love your feedback

We really want to hear your thoughts and ideas as we want to improve this experience wherever possible.

Thanks for your time. Have a crazy day

UPDATE: Below you can find all the suggestions of places/people/situations for William to "jump into". We'll update the list and will have a poll at some point after launch to decide what comes next!

Thanks @JCho133. We hope the story is as rewarding as the gameplay . But yes, it is challenging. We died a lot before actually starting to not suck at our own game

Will post some of the characters and more screenshots by the end of the week! Have a crazy day

Hey Mike, thank you for the honest opinion. We are actually eager to play Riot Runners. The gameplay is simple but the speed and constant switch of direction does mess up with your reflexes

We hope you will find the challenge entertaining while enjoying the stories: you get to be Einstein, pregnant, get in jail, get hand blown off and many more.
