Lemnis Gate Adds Timeloops To Arena Shooting

There’s a lot to be said for messing about with time in games. It’s not always something that’s easy to pull off, but when it’s done well, it almost makes you feel as though you’re actually time travelling. What you don’t often see though, is this concept applied to multiplayer games. In fact, it’s something incredibly rarely done as it’s no doubt very tricky to balance, yet here we are with another multiplayer shooter aiming to make it not only understandable, but enjoyable too.

Lemnis Gate is, in essence, a team-based arena hero shooter that takes place in a time loop. The catch here though, is that you’re both the entire team and each hero too. You play as one character at a time in a 25-second loop, and as each loop ends, the turn passes to your opponent for them to play through their first loop too. Then it comes back to you, where you have to choose a new hero, and use them and their special ability to try and complete objectives, and stop your opponent from doing the same.

There’s a lot of potential in Lemnis Gate, and it’s sure to gain the attention of these looking for a different kind of shooter. It helps that it’s also incredibly pretty, because it never hurts to make a good first impression. The game itself is a lot of fun to play, and while normal circumstances might mean people could be reluctant to buy such an experimental game, you’ll be pleased to know that along with coming out last week, it also came to Game Pass too, making it very easy to jump into.
