Beat the clock : gamedesign



Calmly making your way through dungeons as humanity is on the verge of collapse? There is no time for this sort of bullshit! Rush through dungeons at a race pace and dodge the obstacles while collecting precious resources.

  • Rely on your sharpest reflexes
  • Take swift decisions which will have definitive consequences


Pick your team from a large roster of unique heroes and face the threat responsible for the end of humanity. Beat The Clock offers a dynamic turn-based combat system: whatever your choice is, it will have to be made quickly!

  • Permadeath
  • Randomised game mechanics
  • Numerous passive bonuses to unlock
