About the game: Story
The main guy in this game is the dog Erwin. His owner is Dr. Zachory who invented a time machine. Some day Erwin is walking around in the Dr.’s laboratory and is activating the time machine by accident – and becomes a time traveller.
As Dr. Zachory notices that Erwin has disappeared he sends him parts of a time machine through wormholes. Erwin has to find these parts in different environments like a district in 1984, the middle ages or ancient Asia. To find these parts he has to solve puzzles, needs to fight against enemies and has to combine and repair objects he collects.

How to play?
Interaction with items
There are objects Erwin can interact with. These objects have a red highlight that shows that they are interactable. When Erwin is near an interactable, a menu opens with the possibilities to pick, use and combine things:
In the upper right corner the current selected item is displayed. When clicking on the arrow, Erwin can select another item or drop an item were he stands. You can also see the parts of the time machine that Erwin has to collect in the current world and timezone:
Hunger and damage
Of course Erwin is getting hungry while searching for the time machine parts, so you have to lead him to food to satisfy his hunger. Also Erwin could take damage when interacting with some aggressive people or when he is involved in other dangerous activities:
