“An interesting story... Simple fun.” - The New York Times
"[W]orth a look–even if you’re not a fan of interactive fiction–as this is the best one so far." - RNIB Connect Radio

"The meteors will obliterate everything, and all I can do is watch.
You don't know how glad I am you can see my messages.
It means, in this moment, I don't have to die alone.”

In Timecrest, where epic fantasy meets interactive fiction, author Lisa J. Skye introduces you to Ash Elden, where together you both must scramble to solve the puzzle of who unfroze the meteors to destroy Ash’s world of Alyncia. You discover that you have access to a forbidden magic–the ability to turn back time.

Every choice you make matters, and will change the outcome of this massive 225,000-word interactive story, leading to one of multiple endings. Immersive yourself within the emotional soundtrack and explore the non-linear maps.

With your new incredible powers, who will you choose to live and let die?

- EXPERIENCE AN EPIC STORY with over 225,000 words and multiple endings.
- DECIDE who lives and who dies. Your decisions change the story, so choose wisely.

Praise for Timecrest:

"Timecrest stands out from many of the other interactive fiction games I've played." - AFB, AccessWorld Magazine

"The characters really do draw you in." - Jamie Pauls

"It's not just a survival, yes/no–binary choice thing. It's like you're watching actual characters, actual people, living actual lives." - Alex Hall

"With its developer actively engaging with the AppleVis community to learn how to improve the accessibility of the app and then acting on this feedback, it is no surprise that Timecrest has become a firm favorite with many blind gamers." - AppleVis

What's New in Version 2.5.7

Version 2.5.7

We've added the current year to the bottom-right of the Messages tab, and in the top left corner of each page in the Memory Oracles! It should make it a little less confusing as we jump around the timeline in a time travel story. Years in Alyncia are marked by M.G. or Magicae Genesis, that is, the number of years since magic was first discovered in Alyncia. Most of Timecrest 1 and 2 take place in the year 1014 M.G.

Thanks to the following people who submitted corrections for spelling and grammar which have made it into this release:
Numer, Matdredalia, Mehgcap, Ben Rose, Poke Gamer, @WillowWispette, Andreea, Alicia von Gryphon, ElleMaylise
