NOTE: ONLY RUNS ON OPERATING SYSTEMS NEWER THAN WINDOWS XP (WINDOWS VISTA, WINDOWS 7, WINDOWS 8)! WINDOWS XP AND OLDER CANNOT RUN THE GAME! "Our planet is in turmoil! Wherever you look, there is destruction and chaos. Every force of nature seems to have been unleashed!" As the only person with the technology to set things right, you step into your time machine and travel back 900 years to change the course of history. Unfortunately, your travel is disrupted by the destabilized reality you tried to flee from, and you end up in an alternate portion of space-time: Distorted Earth. Time flows differently here, and so you estimate you have only 15 minutes to gather your bearings before the Apocalypse catches up with you again. This is the alpha version of Earth Overclocked. The full version will be released at a later date. The game will only be free during the alpha period, and after the full release the alpha version will be available as a demo.
Update: Version is now live!

You guys are probably going to like 0.8.2.1, AKA Balance Update Part 2. The game will be overall a little easier due to some enemy nerfs.

Controller support seriously takes a long time to implement, which is why we haven't updated the game in a while. Getting close, though!
