'Lair Of The Clockwork God' Comes To Nintendo Switch, Xbox One And PS4 - Screens & Trailer

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.

Lair of the Clockwork God is a new, standalone adventure starring Dan and Ben, heroes of hit point-and-click games “Ben There, Dan That!” and “Time Gentlemen, Please!”, which are somehow already definitely in your Steam library, even if you can’t quite remember how?

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...

"I am hugely excited to see Lair of the Clockwork God make its way to Switch, Xbox and PS4" said Dan Marshall, Director at Size Five. "The game's overwhelmingly positive reception on Steam has been the fire in my belly all year, and I'm extremely excited to bring the game to other formats, and spread the joy to as many people as possible."

The game's being brought to console by Ant Workshop (previous ports include John Wick Hex). "After bringing indie smash-hits ‘The Swindle’ and ‘Behold the Kickmen’ to Nintendo Switch, we were very familiar with Dan's code. But we agreed to port Clockwork God anyway," said Tony Gowland, "It's great to be able to help bring one of the highest rated indie games of 2020 to a wider audience."

Lair of the Clockwork God launches on Xbox One and Nintendo Switch on September 4th, with PlayStation 4 later in 2020. A 15% discount is available when pre-ordering on Xbox One or Nintendo Switch from August 21st until September 4th.

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.

Currently available for PC (Steam), Lair of the Clockwork God is to coming to Xbox One and Nintendo Switch on September 4, 2020, with a PS4 version to follow at a later date.
