Set in the not too distant future, TimeShift from Saber Interactive will take the first-person genre to an entirely different dimension where the world as we know it has been erased from history and the very memory of us will be wiped out like tears in the rain.  Our descendants will never be born - our existence will become but a mere dream and the future as we know it will never come to be. 

Gamers assume the role of retired Colonel, Albert Swift who has selected by the US Government to test two of the most significant inventions of the century – a time-control device called the "Quantum Suit" and a time machine called the "Quantum Transporter". However, before he gets a chance to carry out his experiments his laboratory is invaded by a masked man and in the confusion Swift is briefly sent back in time to 1900. Upon his return to the present the world he left has changed beyond all recognition. It is now Swift's responsibility to find a way to rectify things and find out who or what is behind the changes.

Product Overview:

The technology behind TimeShift will allow gamers for the first time the ability to slow, stop and reverse the flow of time while remaining completely isolated. Set in an engrossing storyline, gamers must learn to master this new skill to navigate through the new universe and ultimately complete the adventure. Using Saber Interactives proprietary Saber3d Engine – the story will progress through virtual environments of cinematic quality and a sophisticated AI will challenge gamers to think creatively on how to use their new powers.
