When I was at the doctor's office today, they had a TV playing either KVUE or news8austin. I saw about ten seconds of a video-game review. The video game was reminiscent of Portal, except instead of the "wormhole" gimmick, it employed a "time travel" gimmick. You could play for five seconds, and then revert back to 0:00; then on the next run, you could interact with the previous iteration of your moustachio'd avatar. So, if you had to (say) scale a cliff, you could put avatar #1 at the bottom of the cliff, jump on #1's head in iteration #2, and then clamber to the top of the cliff. (Also, I think it was a side-scroller as opposed to FPS-style.)
I can't find any sign of this review on either news site, and I have no idea what the game was called. But the game looked really fun. Has anybody else heard of this?
