Time Rifters is a very clever single-player first person shooter co-op game where ‘time rifts’ allow you to be your own team mates. Each time you play through a level, all of your actions are recorded and reproduced for the next playthrough, even the weapon upgrades. You can do this 4 times, allowing you to play as 4 independent time clones, working together (with yourself) to complete the levels. It’s a fantastic premise and works really well once you’ve wrapped your head around the concept.
The game also looks fantastic, with it’s minimalistic futuristic world and voxel based enemies that can be destroyed piece by piece. It’s also available on Oculus Rift, for a completely immersive experience.
Time Rifters is a unique game which shouldn’t work and somehow does, very well in fact. It’s a single player co-op FPS – a damn good one too and it certainly gives a new meaning to ‘playing with yourself’.
