Time Rift

Broken time pieces open up Time Rifts

Time Rifts are tears in reality that appear around broken Time Pieces. They act as a kind of bonus levels that can be entered by touching a Time Rifts, floating glowing orbs created "when a time piece hits someone" that are found in normal levels. They spawn once the certain objective is finished.

There are two types of Time Rifts:

  • Blue Time Rifts grants access to Dream World and have challenges based around platforming.
  • Purple Time Rifts are created when a time piece crashes into a person, causing the rift to be themed around them. These rifts lead to a strange dimension where the world resembles the chapter they can be found in. Storybook pieces can be found in this dimension as pictures telling the story and secrets of the world they're shaped from.


  • The story book pages you collect in Purple Time Rifts are a reference to the memory vaults from Psychonauts.
  • According to Jonas Kaerlev, the purple rifts are primarily inspired by Pikmin 2
