Lair of the Clockwork God
is now available
, offering a Windows game that combines a point-and-click adventure

WHY PLAY ONLY ONE GENRE OF GAME
when you could be playing two slightly different ones at the exact same time?
BEN is a die-hard, old-school LucasArts Adventure fan.
He has one foot stuck in the 90s, his feet never leave the floor, and he’s
happiest collecting any old junk he can lay his hands on, in the hopes of
combining it all together to solve a satisfying puzzle.
His cohort and sidekick DAN
...has aspirations to be the next big hit indie platform character. He's got
everything he needs: he's hip, he's sensitive, and his nose is a different
colour to the rest of his face.
LAIR OF THE CLOCKWORK GOD sees you switching between both characters and
using their unique abilities together in a race-against-time effort to stop all
