Lair of the Clockwork God official artwork and logo

When it comes to mixing genres, usually the developers tend to go with ones that complement each other. For example, combining Metroidvania-style exploration with an action-RPG combat and progression system makes perfect sense. The newly released Lair of the Clockwork God does not do that!

Instead, Lair of the Clockwork God goes the complete opposite direction by combining the slow and meticulous point & click gameplay with the frantic pace of a platformer. Add to that a very loose connection to reality, as well as plenty of humor, and you've got a bit of unusual game before you.

Since words alone can't exactly convey what Lair of the Clockwork God is going for, allow me to share with you the recently posted trailer. Have a look, it's certainly an interesting sight to behold:

As it stands right now, Lair of the Clockwork God has fairly good reviews across the board, with the Steam user reviews being especially kind with 100% of the 95 current ones being positive. So if you're in the mood for something that's a little bit out of the ordinary, and you don't mind having a couple of laughs along the way, Lair of the Clockwork God really does seem like it's worth a closer look.
