Panta Rhei is an adventure rogue-lite where time is of the essence. As the Guardian of Past, you seek the origin to uncover a mystery that threatens to plunge the Realm of Time into chaos.
You take on the role of Phi, an immortal Guardian of Time, who spent the eternity after the great war tending to the Garden of Past, secluded from the rest of the realm. Their peace gets disturbed as an ancient force rises and threatens to destroy everything Phi has grown to love. They have no choice but to finally leave the safety of the garden to seek the Origin of Time and stop the impending doom. Their journey leads Phi through all domains of the Realm of Time, ruined by the war of ancient times and the subsequent chaos. Phi has to take on corrupted creatures and face their own emerging demons of the past to make it to the end.
But Phi won't be strong enough to reach the Origin of Time right from the beginning. Their advances will be met with ever more powerful adversaries the further they depart from the garden - and eventually, Phis' time will run out, sending them back to their safe home. This allows Phi to recollect themselves, unlock new abilities, and prepare their strategy for the next venture into the ever-changing Realm of Time.
Every time you start a new run, the world of Panta Rhei changes, unveiling new encounters and opportunities to explore. The world is semi-procedurally generated and adapts to the actions taken in previous runs. Careful exploration rewards you with temporary upgrades that enhance your various combat and movement abilities. There will be a variety of upgrades to choose from during every run to allow for different builds and strategies for every run-through.
