Premise -

You are time-travelling scientist Hayley Helix, attempting to traverse your way through the fabrics of spacetime - The Infinitum - in order to return to your original timeline.

But opening the original portal has allowed all of your multiversal counterparts the opportunity to escape their unstable timelines and take Hayley's place in hers.

Gameplay -

This is a tile laying game, in which your ultimate aim is to construct a path back to the original portal. Each player will take the role of one of the versions of Hayley Helix, attempting to thwart the others while ensuring their objectives.

Potential Names (what we've brainstormed so far) -

Split Paradox
Dimension 4
Paradox Shift
Quantum Arrow
The Einstein-Rosen Experiment
The Alcubierre Equation
Neon Circuit
Galactic Circuit
The Omega Paradox
Twin Paradox
The Doppler Effect
The Polymorphic Paradox

Do any of these stand out? If not, any other suggestions are more than welcome (as you can tell I really like the word paradox)

Why not just call it Infinitum?

When Geosphere suggested 'Ad Infinitum' I actually thought of the name 'Helix Infinitum' but wanted to see what other people came up with.

I also really like the names Ouroboros Twin and Mobius Paradox.

You made it personal. All it did was buy you a little more pain than most.

I think maybe "The Doppelganger Effect" instead of Doppler effect.

If the paths on the tiles are just lines I would call it: "Time Lines"
