Lair of the Clockwork God Hitting Xbox One this Year
We know that there are still quite a few point-and-click gamers out there, and this news is going to make all you them happy.
Size Five Games recently announded their new game Lair of the Clockwork God. It is a new, standalone adventure starring Dan and Ben, heroes of tthe point-and-click games “Ben There, Dan That!” and “Time Gentlemen, Please!”.
Lair of the Clockwork God sees you switching between the two characters and using their unique abilities together in a race-against-time effort to stop all the Apocalypses happening simultaneously by teaching an old computer about feelings.
Ben is a die-hard, old-school LucasArts Adventure fan. His feet never leave the floor, and he’s happiest collecting any old junk he can lay his hands on, in the hopes of combining it all together to solve a satisfying puzzle. His cohort and sidekick Dan has decided there’s no money to be made in Adventure Games any more, so he’s going to be an indie darling platformer instead...
It is being said that great efforts have been made to keep the game as streamlined as possible, from a context-sensitive interface to smart level design that minimises pointless traipsing. There are even sliders in the options to tone down how chatty the characters are, or remove extraneous objects entirely. The aim is to create a game with the great mechanics you love, and all the fatty waffle chopped away.
