After their success with Nightmares from the Deep, Artifex Mundi are bringing another one of their point and click adventure games to the Xbox One. Previously released on Steam on 8th August 2013 to very positive reviews, the Xbox One version has some extra additions to prevent it from being a straight up port. Here’s what’s been added to the Xbox One edition:
- 60FPS experience in full HD (1080p) resolution
- Redesigned control scheme for the Xbox One gamepad
- Progressive achievements
- Hero stats with leaderboards
- Weekly challenges
Clockwork Tales: Of Glass and Ink is a detective drama featuring action elements such as espionage, monster battles and even hang-gliding!
[box type=”shadow” align=”aligncenter” class=”” width=””]A continuing string of strange earthquakes are causing the world’s cities to crumble to ruin. Dr. Ambrose Ink—one of the foremost minds of the technological revolution—hopes to expose the underlying cause of this supernatural phenomenon. His research leads him to Hochwald, a town nestled high in the mountains near the mysterious Barber family castle. Yet, shortly after arriving at the estate, Dr. Ink disappears. It’s up to Dr. Ink’s longtime friend and confidante, Agent Evangeline Glass to save Dr. Ink and reveal what is causing the earthquakes. With only a mechanical raven to guide her, she must storm the well-secured castle and face the General Engineer of Gottland. Agent Glass soon realizes that humans are not the only threat during these strange, revolutionary times[/box]
Clockwork Tales: Of Glass and Ink will be launched in Europe and the United States on January 22nd for 9.99 EUR and 9.99 USD, respectively.
