Clive ‘N’ Wrench takes 3D platformer fans to whole new worlds as a Nintendo Switch console exclusive this winter
Hop into a 1950s fridge and travel through time and space in Clive ‘N’ Wrench, a brand-new 3D platformer from Dinosaur Bytes Studio, published by Numskull Games!
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. This nostalgic retro romp launches on PC and the Nintendo Switch this winter.
Time-bending story! – Clive, a rabbit, and Wrench, the literal monkey on his back, adventure through time and space in a 1950s fridge, all on a quest to undo Clive’s cousin Nancy’s mistake and ultimately thwart the tyrannical Dr. Daucus. A colourful cast of characters, both from the modern day and throughout time, await you on your journey!
Space-defying locations! – Clive ‘N’ Wrench features 11 distinct levels as well as boss battles and a hub world. 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 old west in The Chimp, The Bag, and the Bunny.
Tight moveset! – A platformer is only as strong as its moveset, which is why a huge amount of time and effort has been put into both the feel and animation of each move in Clive and Wrench’s diverse moveset. Tailored for both experienced players and newcomers alike, every action you perform will feel tight and precise.
A work of passion! – Mostly developed solely by creator and lead developer Rob Wass in his spare time since 2011, Clive ‘N’ Wrench is a real work of passion from a genuine fan of the genre – we can’t wait for you to play it this year!
“I’m really excited to be able to bring Clive ‘N’ Wrench to the platform I easily get the most requests for, not only that but on a cartridge too”, said lead developer Rob Wass. “It’s a childhood dream come true, in more ways than one.”
“Clive ‘N’ Wrench perfectly captures that 90s-esque 3D platformer fun that gamers have been desiring in recent years”, said Martin Defries, managing director at Numskull Games. “Taking inspiration from some of the classics of that genre, with plenty of original ideas of its own, we couldn’t be happier to work alongside Rob Wass to bring his exceptional work to the limelight after 9 years in development.”
This blast from the past will launch as a Nintendo Switch console exclusive and on Steam this winter. You can wishlist on Steam here.
