The Watchmaker Comes to PS4, Xbox One and PC
1C Games has announced that it is publishing a game called The Watchmaker, which is under development at Micropsia Games. The Watchmaker is a puzzle adventure title in which players take on the role of Alexander whose age passes quickly. He finds that the clocktower he resides in has been sabotaged and time itself has become a victim. Every time Alexander is attacked he ages a little bit quicker, so he must fix time to heal himself.
The Watchmaker takes place inside a giant clock tower, full of gears and platforms, where time is an essential resource. Within the strong steampunk atmosphere of the clock tower, an unusual tale unwinds. The main character is Alexander, a keeper of the clock tower, who realizes one day that his precious clock has been sabotaged, making time run wild.
Gameplay in The Watchmaker illustrates the collapse of time through a unique mechanism, in which the health of the main character is indicated by his age. Alexander ages extremely quickly, as if suffering from a strange disease, his enemies’ attacks further accelerating this process. And so instead of collecting medkits, Alexander collects time to regenerate his youth. The entire aging process is elaborately animated and reflected in the character’s face, posture and movements.

“The game looks to be a refreshing take on the puzzle-adventure genre while giving players a new feel in environmental puzzles and riddles. There is no concrete release date for the game though it is set to be released on the Xbox One, PS4, and PC.”
