“I am you from the future, No Time To Explain, follow me to-ARGHAWAWAA”

It’s a game about time travel, jetpack guns and giant enemy crabs. Seemingly random things happen when you from the future interrupts your dance session and gets dragged away by a giant crab, only to leave a futuristic jetpack gun behind. You follow yourself through time and alternate universes to discover the true nature of why this is happening. No Time To Explain on Xbox One comes alongside a Remastered Steam release with local multiplayer, redesigned boss fights, and much more.

The Mighty Features!

  • USE THE POWERFUL FUTURE CANNON as a gun AND a jetpack!
  • Up to 4 player local co-op!
  • PLAY AS NEW CHARACTERS to blast, beam, slingshot and catapult yourself through fire, acid and fairy-cakes!
  • TEST YOUR GUN-GLIDING MASTERY: 60 wearable hats hidden around these levels, but where are they?
  • FACE OFF against giant monsters from alternate timelines, including the most horrific of all: your evil alternate self!
  • Discover why games are art!
  • Dozens of hats!

Controller support
Full resolution artwork

From Fan-Funded Beginnings!

No Time To Explain was an early Kickstarter project, and released originally on Steam in 2013. That release was fueled by Youtubers but had plenty of technology issues. The money we made from that release — riding on the wave of “Lets Plays” — we invested into other projects like SpeedRunners and Lovely Planet, morphing into an indie publisher. Read the longer story here.

tinybuild logotinyBuild formed as a duo-Kickstarted-studio and morphed into an indie publisher

And what we earned from those adventures we invested back into building a proper studio, the studio’s first project being No Time To Explain for Xbox One, and a Remastered release on Steam.

No Time To Explain was rewritten from scratch in the Unity engine, and is our first console game release.

We completely redesigned boss fights, the soundtrack, added local multiplayer and loads more.
