Time Loader’s Plot and Gameplay

Time Loader‘s demo offers a glimpse into both the plot and gameplay of this indie game. You will play as a small robot that is meant to prevent a major accident in its creator’s life. To do that, you are sent back to the 1990s.

The setting and soundtrack of Time Loader constitute a hearty dose of 90s nostalgia. As you travel through the house, you will find that the background is very well-developed. Indeed, it has a lot of items to tell you something about the owner of the place.
