Our submission made for the GameDev.tv Community Jam in 2020.

You play Skip, a human worker whose mind was transfered into a robot body in a dystopian world where survival depends on finding energy sources to ensure your uptime.

We had 1 month to brainstorm for an idea, create a concept and implement it using Unreal Engine 4.25 (the latest version available at the time of the game jam).


To download the game head over to our page on itch.io, there is a Windows x64 and Mac build.


In order to run UpTime, your computer should meet the following minimum system requirements:

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit.
  • Processor: Quad-core Intel or AMD, 2.5 GHz or faster.
  • RAM: 8 GB RAM.
  • Video Card/DirectX Version: DirectX 11 or DirectX 12 compatible graphics card.

Work in Progress
