Time Survivors: Chapter 0 offers an exhilarating rogue-like bullet hell experience, guiding you through time as you solve a gripping mystery.

For instance, Nikola Tesla wields electrifying electrodes to create shocking paths that zap your enemies. Oda Nobunaga can transform into a nimble flying ninja robot, while Abe Lincoln can summon defensive barriers crafted from cherry trees. With eight characters to choose from, each with their own distinctive ability, there's a wealth of exploration to be had.

Tailor your progression to your preferred playstyle, strategically managing resources to craft your unique character build.

Prepare for intense battles against a diverse array of enemies in each stage, including the fearsome T-Rex lurking in the Stone Age. Additionally, Time Survivors: Chapter 0 presents never-before-seen power-ups and challenges in the world of bullet-hell gaming. Encounter Magic Mushrooms that temporarily transform you into a giant capable of stomping on enemies, or face the risk of instant death when attempting to purge one of the Cursed Relics.

With its captivating 2.5D pixel graphics, an original soundtrack, and support for the Steam Deck, Time Survivors: Chapter 0 immerses players in an action-packed adventure that can be enjoyed on the go.
