Time periods are the different years you can travel to in Shadow of memories. Eike can only travel to time periods related to him in some way. Each action the player takes in the different time period affect future ones. However, some are minor and are only four.Each time period and the characters that inhabit them have a distinct colour tone with Eike remaining the same.

It is home to the Wagners and Dana, along with many ancestors of the present day citizens of Lebensbaum.Since this period is from the early days of Lebensbraum's history many buildings from the present day are not built yet.The colour scheme for this era is a earthy yellowish-brown .
