Retro-Inspired 3D Platformer “Clive ‘N’ Wrench” Coming to PC, Consoles in February

“If you can dodge a Wrench, you can dodge a Clive!”

On Tuesday, Numskull Games announced that the 3D platformer, Clive ‘N’ Wrench, will release in February 2023 for Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5 and Steam PC.

Developed by Dinosaur Bytes Studio, is inspired by classic, retro 3D platformers such as Spyro the Dragon and, erm… (not that other one? Really?)

Here’s the official breakdown of Clive ‘N’ Wrench from Numskull, followed by the latest gameplay trailer:

Clive ‘N’ Wrench is a brilliantly crafted 3D platforming paradise full of challenges, collectables, and charismatic characters. Starring Clive the rabbit and best friend Wrench, the monkey on his back, players will jump, roll, hover, and spin their way through time and space in a magical 1950’s refrigerator, on a heroic quest to thwart the tyrannical Dr Daucus.

Players will adventure through the prehistoric ice age in Iceceratops, to ancient Egypt in Tempus Tombs, and even across the Wild West in 11 distinct levels each with its own boss battles with varying difficulties. Clive ‘N’ Wrench has been tailored for both experienced players and newcomers alike.

Inspired by genre classics like Spyro the Dragon and Jak & Daxter, Clive ‘N’ Wrench began its journey back in 2011 by sole developer and superfan, Rob Wass. Off the back of designing maps for Epic Games’ Unreal Tournament and creating entire towns in Rockstar’s early 3D GTA’s (III, Vice City and San Andreas), Rob has used his industry knowledge and love for 3D platformers to shape the look, feel and animation of each move in the game’s diverse skill set.

Numskull Games will simultaneously release Clive ‘N’ Wrench in both physical and digital formats. There are also plans for a special “Collector’s Edition” that will include a soundtrack, exclusive character cards, a magnet and a color manual.

Clive ‘N’ Wrench is scheduled to release next February for Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, and Steam PC. You can add the game to your Steam wishlist now.
