Clockwork official artwork and logo

If you're a fan of stylish puzzle-platformers, especially those that rely on time manipulation to add an extra edge to their challenges, you might want to keep an eye out for Clockwork - a game about a lonely mechanical boy and his magical, time-bending watch adventuring across a variety of steampunk-inspired levels.

Since a picture is worth a thousand words, and a video probably even more than that, allow me to show you one of the more recent trailers. It should give you the best idea of what Clockwork really is, and more importantly, if its the sort of thing you'd be interested in. Have a look:

While I can't tell you if Clockwork is any good or not, mostly because it hasn't been released just yet, I can tell you that it features over 60 levels to bash your head against, a "unique time-manipulation mechanic with plenty of tricky puzzles", and as you're most likely aware by now, some lovely hand-drawn, steampunk artwork.

As for the release date, this is where things get a little bit tricky. According to the most recent press release Clockwork is set to arrive on October 11th, however, the Steam store page pins the release date on October 10th. I'm not exactly sure which date is correct, but I have a feeling its going to be the one on Steam given that the developers are probably spending a whole bunch of time ensuring all of the information is correct and up to date.

And to end all of this on a less confusing note, here's a couple of lovely images from Clockwork:
