The Watchmaker demo is out!

PRAGUE, Czech Republic, April 5 th 2017 – 1C is pleased to announce that it’s time to release the public demo of The Watchmaker, a puzzle adventure under development by Micropsia Games. With the demo, players can finally check out the steampunk atmosphere of the clock tower, and see how heavily every second of accelerated aging weighs on our hero Alexander, the clock’s keeper and main character. It’s also a chance to test his abilities to manipulate time, which will help him survive and solve the puzzles on his way to uncovering the mystery of the sabotaged clock tower.

Working hard on finalizing The Watchmaker for its release on Windows PC via Steam in Q3 2017, the developers are also launching a Kickstarter to bring the game to Xbox One and Playstation 4 too. The campaign offers backers several added bonuses, according to their pledge level, up to having their own timeless stylized portrait included in the game! It is accessible through http://kck.st/2oCC0re.

 

About the game

In The Watchmaker, a puzzle-adventure game, players take on the role of Alexander. In his steampunk world of giant clock mechanisms, Alexander’s routine involves repairing his precious clock tower every day, adjusting its mechanisms, oiling the gears and polishing everything down to the smallest piece. For years, this is the only life he has known.

But one day Alexander is awakened by a mysterious voice. The voice warns him that something has gone wrong: someone, some unknown being, has sabotaged his beautiful tower! With the clock not working properly, time has gone mad. Consequently, Alexander starts ageing abnormally quickly, leaving him only a handful of time to repair the damage.

Guided by the mysterious voice and armed only with a magnetic glove and a bag of time bombs, he must travel the halls and arcades of the tower in search of the saboteur. Various obstacles, enemies and riddles buried in the clock’s intricate mechanisms stand in his way. But Alexander must push on to save the clock and restore time to its natural rhythm, all while gradually uncovering the mysteries of the tower and its even stranger past.

  • Steampunk puzzle-adventure set in 5 extensive locations
  • Diverse gameplay, with a mixture of exploration, puzzles, platforming action and boss fights
  • Environmental puzzles and special gadgets to solve them, such as magnetic gloves and time bombs
  • Unique ageing process that replaces the usual health bar
