Anachronism: [ uh-nak-ruh-niz-uhm ]
1- Something or someone that is not in its correct historical or chronological time
2- An error in chronology in which a person, object, event, etc., is assigned a date or period other than the correct one

Do not be afraid, little one. I will explain why I have brought you to this place...

We were one of the first species to crawl out from the depths of the oceans...
Over time we learned ancient secrets, and became Wise and Powerful. We saw ourselves as Gods of this world.

We built this place - The Observatory - To watch over the younger species.  We have witnessed the birth of Humanity, the rise and fall of the Creator, and much more.  In this place one can observe all that is, all that was, and all that will be...
And so we did.

But if one looks too far into what is to come, you will see things you cannot possibly comprehend.  We saw the darkness, the pain and the suffering that we would bring upon ourselves...

We saw our End...

At first we ignored the warnings, but one by one they became reality.  Our fear and paranoia trapped us within our sanctuary until eventually... We tried to change destiny itself, without realising that our own actions were the cause of our destruction... 

You must help us. You must stop this before all existence itself is threatened... Our mistake could destroy all life on this world if not amended, and somehow the answer lies with you... Search this place, learn its secrets...

I brought you here and I am sorry... I took you from your home, your friends, your life and I tore you through time itself to this place and I am sorry.  I took your voice and your memories and I brought you to this nightmare we created, all because of a little hope that somehow you were the one who could save us...

I killed you, Anna...

...And I am sorry

Announcing my WIP Mod: Annachronism for Aquaria!

What is it?
- A Mod I'm working on for Aquaria, set in the same Universe but seperate from the original game. Will feature much of the same style of gameplay as Aquaria.

Who's the main character?
- Another Mithallian (or however you call them), like Naija, but with a very different past.  She is torn through time itself to The Observatory: A vast, floating city, ruled by an ancient and mysterious race. Her voice and memory are destroyed during the journey through time, and after recovering from the initial shock, she also cannot recall what her true name is.

What's the story?
- Guided by a mysterious spirit who warns of impending doom and destruction, "Anna" (as she is referred to) must search the Observatory and discovery its history and its purpose, and also prevent the destruction of all existence at the hands of a mysterious antagonist.

What will it feature?
- New Bosses!
- Less focus on combat/more focus on puzzles & Exploration.
- Completely seperate storyline from Aquaria (with some minor references obviously)
- Fully original world to explore using completely new art
- New voice acting, new music, new story and twists galore!

How long will the mod be?
- Not as long as aquaria, probably around 2-5 hours max.

What is its current status?
Currently WIP:
- Main Character first design is down and tested. Few things to sort out here
- First area is designed, art is in progress
- Story is more or less finalised
- Music is work in progress (ie. I've done half a track)
