Awaken The Time time travel 3D adventure is due to progress into support for Linux with Windows PC. Thanks to recent details from developer Gacriva Studio. The Alpha build is already live on Steam.
Awaken The Time is a third person time travel 3D adventure game. This all takes place in a Matrix-like world where players travel across time. Enjoy this unique story, all based on 5 different time zones with an RPG feel. One entity using different bodies, various time zones, and one storyline. But there are also different background stories in different time zones. Where you can expect 3 gameplay styles in one single-player game.
I use Unreal Engine, and I plan to port it on Linux and multiple platforms, and consoles. I am a solo developer, so I need time to reach the Full release later in Q3 2023, and then I will do it.
While this is positive news, Linux support will be available in Q3 2023. Giving the developer ample time to issue a stable native release. This can also be positive news for Linux support via Proton. Should you be up for investing the $9.99 USD.
Personally, I’d recommend downloading the Demo via Itch.io, first.
The main future of this game is time travel in a simulation world. Awaken The Time takes place in 5 different time zones. But each time zone has its unique futures.
In Awaken The Time first act thiis a maze where you play as a samurai gifted with magical powers. The entire map is a huge puzzle. The main character has multiple fighting abilities. So he can wield a two-handed sword, a sword with a shield. He can also wield the bow like a true archer. But the main feature being the magical abilities like soul blast (similar to fireball spell). There is also an explosion blast (similar to a magical bomb), an electric tornado, and a healing spell. Another future that this level has besides countless enemy types is various traps. These are all available for the player to use to your advantage. Simply by luring the enemies into the traps. There is an inventory system for managing your stuff.
Then in the second act, players will go into the garage and you’ll find a companion from the maze. And he will throw you in the future.

The third act has a lot to do in the future. Since you are a post-apocalyptic survivor that will have to search for weapons. The weapons and munitions being one of the characters’ future. He has a fast secondary he can use a pistol or an SMG. And thirdly he can’t fight with his fists and legs or with a knife. Awaken The Time does offer a finishing move if the player is close enough to the enemy. Another future is a special post-apocalyptic car that has 3 types of offensive weapons. Such as a machine gun, a rocket lancer, and the electromagnetic field blast.
Also, note the car is bulletproof, has nitro, and players can also use an electromagnetic field. This lets you make the car jump helping you get out of sticky situations. You will use all these features to defend yourself against 3 types of enemies. Such as the slow zombies, the cyber zombies, and other survivors that attack without hesitation. There is also an inventory system for your weapons.
In the Awaken The Time fourth act, you find yourself lost on an island. Here there is no life except the plants, so you go into a bunker. There you will find the special suit. This suit is the main future of this act. The suit has will amplify your physical abilities, allowing you to jump higher, and you can find upgrades on the map. These upgrades will give you a range of abilities. Due to letting you become invisible and move faster. Even slow time, stop time, reverse time, she can teleport, dash and she can recall. The difference between reverse time and recall is when you reverse time you stay in one place. While if you reverse time, everything around you changes, letting you recall and reverse time as you wish.
Using these abilities you will have to avoid the cameras and robots. Since they are guarding somebody you will then try to help. This will require full stealth where you won’t kill anything or anyone. There is also a section like a 3D platformer. There you will have to go through a sewer system.
The Awaken The Time Final Act
In the final act of Awaken The Time you come out of a pod as the god you are and the room lights up where you can see all the characters you played and many more. Here you find out that all those are simulations of your past lives when you were a human. Trying to figure out what happened you create another simulation and you will be betrayed by your AI and another entity that wants you trapped because he can’t kill you. Leaving an opening like that allows me to make a sequel.
How long does it take to complete Awaken The Time?
If you take the fastest route it will take you up to 6 hours. Including the fact that you will work through all of the Awaken The Time maps. However, the first time will take you at least double that time.
Awaken The Time time travel 3D adventure Alpha build is out on Steam. However, this is an alpha release, despite the Steam page. Offering up a Windows PC build and in 2023 a Linux port as well. Priced at $9.99 USD.
