Developed by: Cryo Interactive Entertainment - DreamCatcher Interactive (2000) - First-Person Adventure - Rated: Everyone
The future has always been a most intriguing concept for humankind. Time has been something of a non-compromised stability
and humans have absolutely no control over it. No control, that is, until today: January 1st, 1893.
Brendan Wales, after years of research and hard work, is preparing to make a fantastic journey. Excitement thickens the air
surrounding him as he steps into his time machine. The machine is guided by the Chronohedron which is separated from the rest
of the machine and located in the rear, surrounded by a glass cage. The crystals it contains represent the past, present and future.
Suddenly, an object of unknown origins appears in front of Wales. It's made of copper, quartz and shells with the words "The
Nautilus Guides the Time Traveler" engraved on its side. He decides to take the object with him, unaware of the possible
alterations it can inflict on his machine.
The time machine disappears and Wales travels forward in time about 800,000 years. He lands in a strange city and suddenly the
Chronohedron disappears! Brendan Wales, once thriving in his own excitement upon his new discovery, now finds himself alone,
nearly a million years in the future with nothing but the strange object that appeared before him moments before he left.
This stranger in a strange land must now find his way home. To do that he'll have to talk to people in the city and track down a
way to ensure his return. His wits and the Nautilus are his only hope for survival. The New Adventures of the Time Machine
explores a mystery world of the future where magic exists in a single player interactive environment.
Understanding the sand people of this land involves learning several useful terms such as Adhamid, Chronomancy, Effahid, Jad
Garrul, Khronos, Wave and Shekandar (lords of the wave). Each has a specific meaning within the new culture Wales has entered.
