Directly at the beginning, when the boat arrived and you get out you can see that the boat completly black at the bottom, like completly . I don't know if that is intended. The waterfall at the beginnen looks strange if you look from the backsite. When I went through the first portal and the blackscreen was there, I could see a line of pixels at the right side.

That was everything. It's pretty nice game. The graphics are really beautiful. Only some shadows are little bit strange. I know that was really a strict review but I wanted to say everything so you can fix that. It's just a very nice game that needs some work. 👍

this game is amazin

The graphics style is very unique and absolutely georgeous and fits the Puzzle theme very well. It would be good of were to be optimized a little better however. Since I'm running the game at around 30 FPS, which is pretty sad considering how my PC runs Apex Legends at 80 FPS.

Amazing! I had a go at this about a month ago and loved the concept and visuals but I got stuck on (I'm guessing?) the last puzzle. Saw a let's play video yesterday and felt a bit stupid for not figuring it out I was supposed to rewind twice, but I got fixed on the idea that I'm supposed to jump back to main "island" with the cube and got really frustrated when the cube kept respawning back even if I made the jump.

That was really frustrating for me too, because I did the same thing. I did find the solution they wanted later on, but the first time the cube shifted back I felt like I'd been scolded for solving the problem in a way that was perfectly viable. That clever feeling you get for solving the puzzle was let down by it, honestly.

Love the concept

Really nice looking game and I beat all your puzzles. So, ha! I think I did them the right way, they were a bit unconventional near the end...



i will give it a try 

Gave it a go...

Even though I prefer more detailed graphics, Hourglass is a visually pleasing puzzle game with some fun puzzles happening in it. It's also rather relaxing, with the only stress of solving anything being what you put on yourself, and I like that. Sometimes, it's fun to just relax in a game.

Good job, devs, and good luck finishing it.

Part 2!

Now with more head scratching and puzzle solving!

I love the game a lot! I'm really excited for the full release, you can find my gameplay/commentary Here for the first half, I'll be releasing the second half tomorrow!


Good Concept game! I like it!  Most of levels are very easy but only one level is too too difficult for me.

You can move blocks around while you're on top of them. I solved a puzzle where you're supposed to move the block as a recording, then get on top of it and let your ghost push you across, but I just got on top of it while interacting with it and i could basically drive it around~


A good start for this game, I look forward to seeing what else you do, keep me informed.

Quite a bit of challenge in there, those sneaky Egyptians knew how to put your mind to work. Good luck with the KS! :) 


If I have to say anything about the game is at the sand area Id make shadows a bit more dark to increase depth a little bit ... Great game great puzzles cant wait for more :)

Really nice game so far, i like the game mechanic (you have to play with a second version of yourself to open up the doors and get further in the game) hope that the Kickstarter campain is reaching its goal so Hourglass gets published. If you are curious (and you should be) i recommend playing the Demo [Download above] and see for yourself. :D
