GamingReport.com Review of Timestream

Posted by Nathan P. on September 17, 2006

Read it here. It got 2 out of 5 stars.

In conclusion, overall I was not impressed with Timestream. There was nothing in it that drove me to want to play it. It had some interesting ideas and mechanics, but nothing in it really made me want to find players and try it out. It comes across as an singular idea that he built a role playing game around. It is lacking in some areas and seems to me to be a incomplete job. This is not unique, however. Many independent games are written this way. I suppose I need to lower my expectations for independent games.

It’s interesting to me that all of the reviews of the game have said basically the same thing, but that the particular reviewers taste leads to a somewhat broad variety of scores.
