'Lair of the Clockwork God' (ALL) Announced - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on April 4, 2019 @ 7:39 p.m. PDT

Lair Of The Clockwork God is a fast-paced point & click adventure for the modern era where you join adventurer Ben and wannabe indie darling platformer Dan in a race against time to prevent all the Apocalypses happening at the same time.

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...

Great efforts have been made to keep the game as streamlined as possible, from a slick 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.

“We all have fond memories of point-and-click games, but honestly who has the time for all that endless meandering anymore?”, lamented Dan Marshall, long-time indie developer and head of Size Five Games. “Lair of the Clockwork God has been designed to retain the best of the genre: meaty puzzles, huge inventories, funny jokes, and plenty of verbs! But is structured more like a platform game, so it’s forward-focussed, driven, fast paced, with accessible, localised puzzles, all broken up with platforming challenges.”

For players who are keen to catch up with the critically-acclaimed previous Dan and Ben Adventure classics, Size Five Games are offering them at a 90% discount on Steam for the next week!

Lair of the Clockwork God will be released on PC and Consoles this summer.
