Play OverviewPlay Overview

No Time to Explain (2015) is a running, jumping and shooting game where you play a man chasing his future self through time. As the game evolves you must progress to solve time puzzles and complete platforming challenges.

The game features time travel, time paradox effect, and alternate time-lines. It starts pretty strange but gets ever more confusing and absurd as you go. The side-scrolling running, shooting and jumping is consistent throughout, along with using a huge laser as an unusual means of propulsion.
