Operation Backlog Completion 2024
Mar 202020

Five years after its unsuccessful Kickstarter campaign, the 3D platformer Clive ‘N’ Wrench is finally coming out!

Clive ‘N’ Wrench is a 3D platformer inspired by games like Jak & Daxter and Spyro. It stars a rabbit and monkey duo on a time-traveling journey through 11 worlds (and a hub world) to stop the evil Dr. Daucus.

It will be released not only on the PC but also the Switch sometime in winter 2020. (I’ve seen people arguing that winter 2020 just ended, but I think it’s safe to say the developers mean Q4 2020.)

Last year, I played the public alpha demo and found it to be quite promising despite some rough spots and a frustrating camera. Hopefully those issues have been ironed out for the final build.

According to publisher Numskull Games, Clive ‘N’ Wrench will be available both physically and digitally. A new trailer is out now.

After all this time, I’m thrilled to see Clive ‘N’ Wrench being completed. I’m still disappointed over the cancellation of Fiona Frightening. It looks like Lobodestroyo came back from the dead, however. And another 3D platformer we discussed around the same time, Happy Hell, got a new demo last month!

Speaking of demos, I enjoyed the demos for both Trials of Mana and the Resident Evil 3 remake, and I intended to blog about them until I saw the news about Clive ‘N’ Wrench. Since we’ve been following Clive ‘N’ Wrench for so long, I wanted to highlight that first.
