ShackStream: Time Loader takes us back in time with a bouncy robot on Indie-licious

On this week's episode of Indie-licious, we're checking out the robotic platformer from developer Flazm, Time Loader!


What’s a sentient robot to do when they know catastrophe is set to befall their creator? Well, if they’re the robot from Time Loader, they go back and fix it! Join us on today’s Indie-licious as we take a heroic little robot back in time in this story-drive, physics-based platformer.

Time Loader comes to us from developer Flazm and publisher META Publishing. It actually came to PC via Steam back in November 2021, but it’s set to get a console release on March 10, 2022. Much applauded on Steam, players on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Nintendo Switch will be able to play for themselves and see what kind of fun Time Loader has to offer. Playing as a four-wheeled robot that sees a tragic accident come to its creators, we go back in time to stop the events that lead to the accident in a series of platforming challenges requiring various power-ups and upgrades for our machine.

If you want to get a look at how Time Loader plays out, tune into Indie-licious at 1:30 p.m. PT / 4:30 p.m. ET on the Shacknews Twitch channel. You can also watch just below.
