    Meet Time Surfer! This is our new endless 'surfer' game. It's a mash-up of two very different game ideas: Tiny Wings' touch-to-dive gameplay and Braid's time reversal.

    The result is an insane twitch-based endless surfing game in which you play a time god blasting across the fabric of space. The game gets so fast we had to let you rewind time to keep it under control.

    It's coming soon for iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and iPad mini. Check out this trailer for a better idea:



    The game has costumes, pets and other bling to customise. Plus a hardcore game mode as well called Hell Zone. If you liked stages with spikes from Bean's Quest you'll probably feel right at home in Hell Zone...

    Here's some poster art!

    And some screenshots!

    Lastly, the end of the universe is trying to kill you. Rewinding time to save yourself is useful in that kind of situation.

    Looks fun. Will definitely check it out when it hits the app store.

    A hardcore take on Tiny Wings style surfing, plus a time rewind mechanic? Looks amazing.

    Glad you guys like the look of the game so far :)

    I mentioned in the Bean's Quest thread yesterday that we're doing some beta testing at the moment. We have a couple of spots left, if you're interested in getting a copy via TestFlight please just private message me.

    Just wanted to let you know Time Surfer has a launch date!

    It will be hitting the App Store on the 10th Jan 2013. Thankfully we've survived the "end of the world" but you'll soon be able to play Time Surfer and try to survive the end of the universe :p

    Thanks for letting us know the launch date! Bean's Quest is one of my favourite games on iOS, and I've been looking forward to your next game for a while. Obviously this is a very different game than Bean's Quest, but you have a definite purchase from me when Time Surfer is released.

    Thanks again, and good luck!

    The game has IAP so you can buy Space Cakes (really!) which are used to unlock costumes and/or feed pets :)

    You can collect Space Cakes in game and by completing missions as well though!

    Oh man, the trailer looks so ridiculous, yet awesome at the same time. I love the different random characters. I'll be getting this on release day.
