How to travel in time
It's not a big spoiler that time travel plays some role in "Sweet Science". Now, time travel! Isn't that topic so oftentimes used that it's not worth talking about it? I would disagree... If you take a critical look at most time travel stories, they fall apart quite quickly: either they leave plot holes (why didn't they simply use the time machine to...?) or they are just outragingly non-physical or ultimately just pure magic. Most of the time a mixture of all. There's a reason that J.K.Rowling destroyed all time travel devices in Harry Potter in Volume 5 after having them introduced in Volume 3: she noticed that they just induce plot holes without end!
Okay, and here we go and try to make what one of the most prolific fantasy writer deemed to be too difficult? Yeah, kind of. But I have two things going for me here:
1. Contrary to Harry Potter, this story is not about saving the world! So the need to use time machines for everything is not there, and to counterbalance, there are also good reasons that they are not used too much as well...
2. I have help: from a physicist! That's a rare help and I hope to make full use of it! So far it looks like we are getting together a pretty consistent plot and functionality that includes a number of twists and turns, but should still be manageable for the player to navigate through.
Okay, so how do we do this? Well, you will find out soon.......-ish....... And if you want to find out sooner, then register to get early access to parts of the story!
