Set in the not too distant future, TimeShift from Saber Interactive will take the first-person genre to an entirely different dimension where the world as we know it has been erased from history and the very memory of us will be wiped out like tears in the rain. Our descendants will never be born - our existence will become but a mere dream and the future as we know it will never come to be. Gamers assume the role of retired Colonel, Michael Swift, who has been selected by the US Government to test two of the most significant inventions of the century - a time-control device called the "Quantum Suit" and a time machine called the "Quantum Transporter". However, before he gets a chance to carry out his experiments, his laboratory is invaded by a masked man and in the confusion Swift is briefly sent back in time to 1900. Upon his return to the present, the world he left has changed beyond all recognition. It is now Swift's responsibility to find a way to rectify things and find out who or what is behind the changes.
