TimeSplitters is a game that has inspired millions to make their own levels, shoot their friends and even film machinima. When I was a kid TimeSplitters made me want to create my own game and it gave me all the tools I’d need to do it. It focus’s strongly on multiplayer and is really a game without limits.
TimeSplitters 4 was confirmed, which made fans very happy, then this happiness was taken away when the Free Radical, the company that makes TimeSplitters, was bought by Crytek. In 2009, two years after it was first announced, TimeSplitters 4 was officially put on hold. Crytek UK, which was once Free Radical, then said that if there was a high demand for the game then it would be made, so fans petitioned. On the 1st of November 2010 Crytek UK announced that they are talking with publishers to see if release a fourth TimeSplitters is the right move.
TimeSplitters allows players to play against friends or ‘bots’ in many different types of games, it also has a story mode and allows you to make your own levels, that can either be free play or have a story. It’s a truly unique series and it would be a shame if the sequel never gets finished and released. Some fans have used the game in a different, creative way. They’ve made machinima, which, encase you don’t know, is when a game is used to make movies or series. Not many people use TimeSplitters to make machinima, in fact these might be the only ones. Their show is called As the Hamster Wheel Turns (ATHWT). The first episode is below so check it out.
