Lair of the Clockwork God is coming to Switch & Xbox One in September, and “ASAP” to PS4

The quite excellent platformer point & click hybrid adventure of Lair of the Clockwork God is coming to Nintendo Switch and Xbox One on 4th September, with a PlayStation 4 version coming “ASAP” in 2020.


There’s no word on if the games will be coming to next-gen platforms PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, but if they do, hopefully there will be free cross-gen upgrades and just loads of really pointless ray tracing effects that make everything super reflective. The port to current gen has been handled by Ant Workshop.

Lair of the Clockwork God sees the classic point & click loving characters of Ben and Dan return for another adventure, except this time Dan has decided that he wants to be an indie darling platformer, much to Ben’s chagrin. They stumble their way into a new adventure trying to convince a guardian computer that humanity is worth saving from all the apocalypses that are happening outside. Oh dear.

it’s a genuinely funny adventure that’s sometimes borders on being a bit too smart for its own good. In our Lair of the Clockwork God review, I wrote:

Lair of the Clockwork God is a genre mash-up that probably shouldn’t work, and yet it does. It feels a little unrefined, intentionally so, but there’s plenty of comedic fodder in indie platformers, modern gaming and life for Ben and Dan to riff off through the lens of classic LucasArts style adventures.

The game is out now for PC, with that Switch and Xbox One release now penned in for 4th September, and coming to PlayStation 4 sometime in 2020 after all that businessy stuff has been sorted out.
