'Clive 'N' Wrench' (ALL) - New Screens & Trailer

Clive 'N' Wrench is a 3D platformer centered around Clive, a rabbit, and Wrench, the literal monkey on his back.

Your adventure will take you through time and space in a 1950's fridge, all on a quest to undo Clive's cousin Nancy's mistake and ultimately thwart the tyrannical Dr Daucus.

Inspired by genre classics like Spyro the Dragon and Jak & Daxter, Clive ‘N’ Wrench has its titular rabbit and monkey duo jump, roll, hover, and spin their way through a whole host of wacky worlds.

Clive 'N' Wrench features 11 distinct levels as well as boss battles and a hub world. Your adventure will take you all the way from the prehistoric ice age in Iceceratops, through ancient Egypt in Tempus Tombs and even all the way through to the old west in The Chimp, The Bag, and the Bunny.

Clive 'N' Wrench have a diverse and tight moveset, tailored for both experienced players and beginners alike. Personally, I think the single most important part of a 3D platformer in this vein is control, as such a huge amount of time and effort has been put into both the feel as well as the animation of each move.

Clive 'N' Wrench also features a colorful cast of characters, both from the modern day and throughout time!

Creator Rob Wass talks through what inspired the main duo, the nostalgic and wacky worlds players can travel between and their many different traps and puzzles, as well as the story behind Yooka-Laylee’s iconic snake Trowzer’s cameo appearance.

Key Features:

  • A Time-Bending Tale – Your adventure will take your all the way from the prehistoric ice age in Iceceratops, through ancient Egypt in Tempus Tombs, and even all the way through to the Wild West
  • Space-Defying Locations! – Explore 11 distinct levels each with its own boss battle. Brilliantly crafted platforming paradises full of challenges, collectables and charismatic characters.
  • Flowing Hare – Years have been spent perfecting the feel and animation of each move in Clive and Wrench’s diverse moveset, tailored for both experienced players and newcomers alike. 
  • A Work of Passion! – A project from sole developer Rob Wass started in 2011, Clive ‘N’ Wrench is a real work of passion from a genuine fan of the genre
