What Once Was is a game written in Javascript and rendered using HTML5 canvas. The main character is hoping to right past wrongs, and after awakening in a surreal landscape of memories and nightmares, must find his way home and learn what went wrong. Using switches which change both gravity and the time period he is in, each level presents as a puzzle. Each level has a present and a past, and you must navigate through time and space to help him reach his goal.

Literally jumping through time, you must time your moves carefully in an ever changing landscape. What is now is not What Once Was.
