'Clover' (XBLA) Also Coming to PC - Screens

by Rainier on Oct. 1, 2009 @ 8:45 a.m. PDT

Clover is a plot-driven platformer in the style of classic titles such as Fantastic Dizzy that sees the player solve logical puzzles by collecting items, talking to a diverse cast of characters and exploring artistically realized environments.

The new and enhanced version of Clover – now Clover: A Curious Tale – updates the hand-crafted watercolor political platform puzzler and invites players to put their puzzle-solving skills to the test by confronting the mysteries of its fascinating medieval world.

Players must help orphaned teenager Sam find out more about the events surrounding a shock attack on the proud nation of Sanha, which resulted in his mother’s tragic death. Be warned though, even if Sam works out the mysteries that surround him, the answers he receives may challenge his beliefs forever.

Featuring a fully remastered piano score, new puzzles, voice acting, localization and a plethora of new ambient effects, Clover: A Curious Tale is a relaxing yet immersive experience that will keep players pushing to find out more.


With an original story line and a new take on gaming conventions like 'lives' and 'health', Clover: A Curious Tale offers an intriguingly modern take on adventuring classics such as Fantastic Dizzy and Maniac Mansion.

Key Features:

  • No player death, lives or health bars
  • Fantastic reworked piano music and all new voice-acted dialogue
  • More than 175MB of hand-painted watercolor artwork
  • New graphics and effects and an unlockable artwork gallery
  • Improved animation
  • New intro, endings, extra puzzles and additional characters
  • New context sensitive controls

Chris Swan, Business Development Director for Blitz Arcade, says: “We’re delighted to have created a partnership with Binary Tweed for Clover: A Curious Tale. Daniel Jones has crafted a unique counter culture platform adventure game with an engaging and original storyline, an individual visual style and highly engaging audio. It’s a game with fantastic potential for growth on other platforms and we look forward to helping take Clover: A Curious Tale to the next level.”

Binary Tweed’s Daniel Jones says: “It's fantastic to be working with Blitz Games Studios. As stalwarts of the UK games industry, the Oliver Twins were responsible for many of the games I played growing up, giving the relationship between Binary Tweed and Blitz 1UP a common cultural background. Partnering with a company of such experience is exactly the kind of route that I hoped Xbox Live Indie Games development would make accessible.”
