    What would you do with the power to turn back time?

    In Timecrest, you meet Ash, a young mage from the magical world of Alyncia. Ash has frantically established a connection with you as a last-ditch effort to find some way to save Alyncia from obliteration. This is when you discover that you have the power to turn back time in Alyncia, and give Ash another chance to save it from total annihilation.

    Timecrest plays out in real-time and Ash will message you throughout the day. The decisions you help Ash make will determine how everything plays out in Ash’s world. You will also meet other Alyncians along that way and must determine if they are friend or foe.

    Your choices may lead to major changes such as which friends and foes may live and die, and allow you to discover one of several endings we have written for you in Timecrest.

    Timecrest combines our favorite genres - storytelling and role-playing games.

    We’ve incorporated light role-playing elements such as the merchant and inventory systems that give you further insight and immersion into Ash’s world.

    We invite you to try it out and let us know what you think. In Timecrest, fate is in your hands.

    watchOS 2:

    • Haptic feedback with the Taptic Engine—feel powerful spells and big moments on your wrist
    • Complications–know exactly when Ash is ready to talk to you and when Ash is busy
    • Native app support–built for short sessions and fast loading times using watchOS 2 APIs

    iOS 9:

    • Fully optimized support for Slide Over and Split View on the iPad. We’ve customized special font sizes, layout and splash screens that are customized for when you are multitasking on your iPad

    So... I just started playing. I got to the first break in the conversation and put my phone to sleep. I was notified on my watch, but only had the option to dismiss. I then went into the app that was installed on the watch, but get a plain black screen with the time in the corner. Is there supposed to be something more on the AW?

    Hi broken202, thanks so much for the feedback. We are putting a lot of effort to make the watchOS 2 version of Timecrest have a lot more features, including options in the notification, and increased speed and stability, since Apple will let us run code right on the Apple Watch itself.

    I'm sorry that you're seeing a plain black screen–usually that means that Apple's WatchOS 1 tripped up somewhere when trying to communicate with the attached iPhone. If you follow these instructions, you can use the side button to force-close the Timecrest app so you can try to re-run it:

    We hope this will help you with getting it to work on your device.

    Please look out for the update when watchOS 2 comes out, hopefully in a couple of weeks. We've found that Apple's APIs are much more stable and faster, and we're excited for the massive quality improvement we'll be able to make when that comes out.

    Please continue to provide your bug reports and feedback and we'll fix it ASAP!

    I tried force closing the app on my AW, but it got the same results opening it again. No biggie, just letting you know.
