Developer Lunar Ray Games and publisher Chucklefish are bringing their action-platformer Timespinner to new consoles very soon. Timespinner released last year on Linux, Mac, PC, PS4, and PS Vita. Now it’s coming to a Nintendo Switch or Xbox One near you.

You control the timekeeper Lunais on her quest for revenge against the people who murdered her family. Fortunately, as the timekeeper, Lunais has the ability to bend time to her advantage. You use her powers to help explore the beautiful environments, evade her foes, and solve puzzles. She quickly gains access to various Magic Orbs, which alter and improve her combat abilities.

Lunais can also befriend and train various Familiars who will aid you in battle. If you’d like, you can even have a second player jump in and play as your familiar. Either way,  these adorable friends make the game much more manageable.

It wouldn’t be a game with time control if you couldn’t warp through time and visit different points in history. Timespinner features two different versions of its world and you will have to traverse both to find the vengeance you seek.

In recent years, we’ve been drowning in games trying to give a modern take on the classic Metroidvania genre. What Timespinner lacks in originality, it more than makes up for with stunning pixel art visuals and tight gameplay. The genre is undoubtedly oversaturated; however, I still think Timespinner is worth a look regardless.

Timespinner is coming to Nintendo Switch and Xbox One on June 4. The game is already out on Linux, Mac, PC, PS4, and PS Vita.
