Timelie is a stealth puzzle game in which you play as a little girl and her cat, who must find their way out of an abstract world through a tiled layout. You can control and manipulate time, fast-forwarding and rewinding the world around you at will. You also have the ability to fix bridges, floors and areas that previously broke with special shards. It promotes a single-player cooperative experience, where you control both the young girl and her cat to complete tasks. The visuals are reminiscent of Monument Valley while the soundtrack is vibey.
