ChrononChronon is a brand new and unusual point-and-click puzzle game from On of Eyezmaze. The time-based puzzle takes place in the dwelling of a creature that leaves early in the morning and returns in the evening. The objective of the game is to manipulate objects at various times throughout the day to complete the story.

Click on items to act upon them, if possible, and change the time of day by clicking on the time buttons along the top of the game window.

Analysis: As usual, On delights us with yet another creative and original game featuring strange and unusual characters, and yet it is not without potential pitfalls. The design of the game depends on the player changing the time to manipulate objects that, in turn, affect the sequence of events that play out throughout the day. The problem is that since the player can change anything at any time period it becomes rather easy to create inconsistencies between time periods that are likely to confuse the player. Also, some objects behave differently depending on the time of day, and this serves to add to the confusion. For example, placing the clock on the wall at 6:15 displays the 'correct' time throughout the day (tilt your head so that the position where 3 would be on a normal clock is at the 12 o'clock position), while placing the clock on the wall at any other time will produce different results. Time plays a significant part of the game play (obviously), so I won't say more about it.

It's an ambitious design that requires careful analysis and observation to yield any results at all, and sometimes those results lead to incorrect endings, as On is often wont to do. Unfortunately, without a back story or an introductory narrative, the player is thrown into a puzzle for which there is no obvious goal to work toward, which doesn't help with the confusion factor.

Of course, the game has only been just released and carries with it a version 0 beta indicator, and so there may yet be some additions made to help the player along. That being said, the game in its present form offers a unique puzzle experience for anyone willing to struggle through the confusion and subtle inconsistencies to figure out the solution to this very original new game from Eyezmaze.

Play Chronon

Cheers to Justin, Kristina and Jordan for alerting me that Eyezmaze just released this new game today. =)

Wow Jay! I love the works of this site, how they brought the grow series to life, and then they make this? How genius!

I love that each item can do more then one thing, and that theres a twist of logic that has to be singed into each of these amazing puzzles.

Your site keeps my boredome at bay!

I had a dream that I wrote a steller review for your site last night! Lol! =D

You need to put the pot on the table to place the ingredients in it. Also, the time missing at the top can be found in the chest.

How exactly to you "set the clock"

Score: 0 (0 votes) Vote up Vote down Report this comment Reply

I'll explain how I did everything I mentioned:

The clock is the key to many things. First you need to go to 12:25 and set the clock, then go to 14:55 and there will be a key to unlock the chest on top of the clock. Then go to 6:15 and click the clock again. Then go to 9:45 and there will be an egg on top. Then go to 14:55 and click the clock to put it on the shelf. Finally, go to 14:55 and set the clock again. Now, if you go to 19:00 there will be a candle on top of the clock. I don't know what it is for though.
The thing with the ingredients is kinda weird. You can select them at 9:45, but it doesn't always work, I think it has something to do with the little guy that hatches from the egg. I've been able to do lots of things with him, but nothing too useful. You can send it to the roof, but then he'll disappear, you can have him on top of the table or on the floor. You can also put the mirror or the jars with or without water in his hands, If he goes to the roof with one of the jars he drops it. Also, at 12:25 the jar on the right side is filled with water. Again, I don't know what to do with it.

I'll add a couple of things:

As far as I can tell, the little guy must remain in the house. When I let him leave the max scrore I get is 30/100, when I let him stay, the max scrore is 40/100. However, there's a lot of stuff which you can't do when he's inside. If he's not in the house, you can pour the water that's in the jar at 12:25 into the pot, also, I think that you can't pour any of the other ingredients if the guy is inside. You can let him leave and then pour all of the stuff and then go back in time and let him come back, and the stuff will stay poured, however, I'm not sure if that is a bug or not.

So far...

I've gotten the missing time, white egg, firewood (which is under the cage), hatched the egg, let the green monster outside, tied the rope to the fireplace ledge, and flooded the inside of the house.

To get the missing time (9:45):

set the clock on the wall during 12:25 and 14:55, but keep it on the ledge all the time beforehand.

To hatch the egg:

At 6:15, put the wreath on the table, then put the big green egg on top.

To remove the firewood under the cage:

Keep the clock on the wall at 6:15 and 9:05. At 9:05, put the clock's tail straight down. When you go to 9:45, the cage will be lifted, and then you can move the firewood.

To let the green monster out:

Remove the ledge out of the fireplace at any time.

To tie the rope to the fireplace ledge:

After the green egg is hatched, remove the ledge from the fireplace and click on the rope.

Apparently, milk grows on trees in this game.

The cute green monster can come back, as long as he's attached to the rope. If you send him out with a bottle, then he comes back with a bottle of milk from the pink milk tree.

I got up to 75/100
Wasen't really keeping track, so I'm going back now in a new window to retrace all my setps for spoilers.


Start by jumping ahead to 12:25. move the wreath and place the clock on the wall. Go to 14:55 and click the key on top of the clock to unlock the missing time.

Go back to 6:15 and put the wreath on the table, followed by the large egg, also open the drapes. This will cause your monster to hatch.

Place the clock on the wall and click the tail to attach it to the cage. Now proceed to 9:05 and make sure the clock tail is still attached to the cage.

Still at 9:05 give the left bottle to the monster, move the shelf from the fireplace, and attach the rope to the monster.

At 9:45, you'll find the monster on the roof filling the bottle and getting a berry with his tail. Move the wreath from the table and put the pot there instead. Click the rope attached to the fireplace shelf to pull him back down.

You'll see that the clock now has the small egg on top and has lifted the cage fomr the floor. Click the egg to unlock the ingredient. Also move the wreath to the wall and click the wood that was formerly under the cage to place it on the shelf.

Click all the ingredients on the shelf to add to the pot.

At 12:25, it rains. Without the cover on the chiminey (removed by the monster) the rain pours in and the monster climbs on the cage for safety. Take both the berry and the milk fomr him.

Add both milk and water to the pot and give the mirror to the monster.

A lot changes now moving to 14:55; the mole-thing has dug to both the berry on the surface, and under the table, draining the water. The monster's weight has broken your cage open, and, if the roof shutter is open, you can reflect light with the mirror. Put the wreath then the firewood in the fireplace to make stacked firewood. Also, place the shelf back in the fireplace, and put the pot on the shelf.

I'm not sure where to go from here. The guy gets as far as the tunnel and apparently just dies at 19:00. However, if you take the clock from the wall at 14:55 and put it back at 18:10, you can cause the candle to appare on top of the clock at 19:00

Ahh, I have an ammendment to the above walkthrough

at 12:25, after the berry is under the table, attach the rope to it. This allows the guy to have a way to climb up after 18:10 when he is in the hole. However, this will only get you as high as 80/100.
I assume so becasue the giant didnt get dinner. If someone can find how to light the stacked wood, im quite sure that with my walkthrough you can get 100/100!!

Hey everybody. I see a lot of people complaining that they didn't understand the story.

All you need to do is to browse the times to see what would happen if you don't follow the walkthrough. Sometimes the effect is only seen if you go forwards a few times. For example,

the berry is needed to dry the floor. The rope attached to it is needed to help the little guy up the tunnel.

As for Doerfy:

The pot needs to be on the table, not on the fireplace, when you add the ingredients (14:55). Just put it on the table and click on all the ingredients. It should be in the fireplace at 18:10.

Finally,

I just found out that all the ingredients except the egg, milk and bag of powder are optional!

All of you people having trouble with the fire

You have to make sure that the water is on the left instead of the right, for some reason the reflection of the mirror doesn't narrow as much -- in other words as effective -- as the milk jar. That should help you.

One amendment to the spoilers...

You say the hatch must be opened, but it was never closed.

I'm missing a reset button, have to refresh every time i make a mistake.

On posted it on his blog now, unfortunately he doesn't have the post set to comments.

If he did I would really want to tell him that the game rocks since he seemed very displeased with it.

And also I want mention that the game really needs a reset button (for future versions) because of the convoluted state machine that the puzzle of the game is. Even though the F5-key works.

About the clock

First I suggest you get the items from the clock, i.e. hang it at 12:25 and get key at 14:55 and then hang it at 6:15 and get egg at 9:45. Then you can continue with the walkthrough. The concept of clock ticking and sleeping had me analyse the distance between times and calculating when the hour hand points at individual items on the clock face. Great game by the way.

Typically, the number of critical postings reflects the number of players who just failed to understand a game. Add me to that list. I typically love these types of games (Hapland, Warbears, etc), but I couldn't get into this one. Kudos to On for trying such an ambitious game. Maybe I'll come back to it when I have more time, but I wasn't too crazy about this one. I guess it's the fact that it's difficult to get a consistent visual record of the changes you make, since you have to keep going forward and backwards in time.

I managed to get to 95/100 before having to resort to spoilers.

My problem was not knowing that the rope could be tied to the apple before the mole monster ate it. With the rope stretching through the tunnel, the yellow guy is unable to fill in the hole behind him.

The ending screen is incredibly charming!!

The walkthrough at the top does not get you 100/100

In Sam's original walkthrough, before Imok20 put the spoilers in, it says to add all of the ingredients except the poison AND WATER!

If you do add the water, then you will get 80/100, because the cake doesn't rise as much.

I think that Imok20 just accidentally missed that bit.

A hint for all who have only 96 of 100 points. It's necessary that the candle is on the top of the clock to get 100 percent. So when you have mastered everything except for this, then go back to 14:55 and put the clock on the shelf. At 18:10 put the clock on the wall again and by switching to 19:00 you should gain the last 4 points.

Okay! This is what you do. In the order I give it to you.

12:25 Put the clock on the wall.
14:55 Get the key from the top of the clock.

YOU NOW HAVE 9:45

12:25 Put the clock back.
6:15 Put the clock on the wall
9:45 Get the Egg from the top of the clock.
6:15 click the tail of the clock.
9:45 Remove the wood from under the cage to top shelf.
6:15 Move Nest thing to table then the egg. Open the curtain.
9:05 Click the rope and remove rack from fire place.
9:45 Click the rope that is now tied to the green guy.
12:25 Click the apple that the green guy has.
9:45 Click the wood back under the cage. Click the nest onto the shelf. Place pot on desk. Put the nest on the wall. The wood back on the shelf.
12:25 Put filled water glass into pot.
14:55 Put Rack back into fire place. Put Pot on rack. Put wood in nest in fire place. Put wood in fire place.

I can't figure out how to get the Candle out of the clock.
That will get you pretty far.
You will be out of the cage.

I think the candle is supposed to light the fire place to cook the poison soup.
Then the Black guy will eat it and Die.
Then you and that green guy can live together.
Or something.

Hope that helped.

Hey, there's something wrong in the spoilers, almost at the end...

Here is the correction:

You don't have to put the water (ingredient) in the pan, if you do that, the bread doesn't grow as much as it can, and you end up with 92/100, so don't put neither the water nor the poison.
