10tons Ltd. announced Time Recoil, a top-down shooter with an unique time slowing mechanic today.

Every time you kill an enemy in Time Recoil, time slows down. Killing additional enemies while in slow motion charges a special move. The more the player kills, the more powerful their special move becomes; the starting attack is a simple dash, but it can end up as a mind blowing psy-weapon.

In the game, players attempt to kill Mr. Time, an “evil mad scientist dictator”, as part of a rebel organization called the Rocoilers. In order to do this, the player must travel through time to find and kill him before he destroys the rebels

The developers provided a list of the game’s features, which you can look at below:

  • Your mission: Locate and kill Mr. Time
  • Your super power: Kill to slow time
  • Conduct unbelievable slow motion feats
  • Dash through walls, blast them to dust!
  • Beat your friends in the speedrun-mode

Sampo Töyssy, Lead Designer of Time Recoil and Vice CEO of 10tons Ltd., had the following to say about the game:

Why Ratchet & Clank is the Most Important PS5 Game

Time Recoil has a laser sharp focus on great slow motion shooter gameplay. Kill to slow time and keep killing to charge the increasingly spectacular special move. As you can see in the video, you’ll be in the ground zero for some invigorating explosive slow motion action.”

You can look at some screenshots and watch the announcement trailer, which shows off the alpha build of the game, below. Time Recoil will come to PC, PS4, and Xbox One in Q2 2017.
