Welcome to TimeSplitters: Future Perfect, The third in a series of games created by UK company Free Radical. The trilogy is known in the games world for its quirky, offbeat characters and storylines. As a first person shooter (FPS), the TimeSplitters series is something of a rarity because it maintains a sense of humour.

“We wanted to give the story a sort of B-movie feel,” says Free Radical’s lead animator Andrew Lawson. “Something that didn’t take itself too seriously – as so many FPSs around these days do – but still had a plot that kept the player interested in what was happening next.”
