Help with my "speeding up time" script

Hi, I'm trying to get it so that my game speeds up faster and faster once the timer (which is counting downwards) reaches 30, and then goes back to normal timescale after the counter hits 1.

I have this script below so far but I have no idea what to put to increase the speed faster and faster, would it be Time.timeScale += 0.1f * Time.deltaTime i'm totally guessing here!?

 #pragma strict
 var countdownTimer : countdownTimer;
 
 function Update(){
 
 if (countdownTimer.seconds <=30){
 
 //speed up time x2
 Time.timeScale = 2f;
 
 if (countdownTimer.seconds <=1){
 
 //reset time to normal again
 Time.timeScale = 1f;
 
 }
 }
 }

It worked, I should have tried it out first before posting the question hehe. MOD please delete if required, but I thought i'd post it in case it helps someone else

 #pragma strict
 var countdownTimer : countdownTimer;
 
 function Update(){
 
 if (countdownTimer.seconds <=30){
 

//gradually speed up time Time.timeScale += 0.1f * Time.deltaTime;

 if (countdownTimer.seconds <=1){
 
 //reset time to normal again
 Time.timeScale = 1f;
 
 }
 }
 }

Pretty much.

 if (countdownTimer.seconds <= 30) {
     // clamp at 2 (optional)
     if (Time.timeScale <= 2.0f) {
         Time.timeScale += 0.1f * Time.deltaTime;
     }
 }
