REVIEWS Funk of Titans Review
It’s always particularly tough to find the funk of a game when it already doesn’t have much rhythm.

Finally Broke My Crowdfunding Rule
By oblivion437
Posted on 01/12/15
I've had a long-standing rule to avoid getting involved in any sort of crowdfunded activities.  I didn't donate to Shadowrun or Wasteland, but I did buy and enjoy both of them (I'm plugging both of those games right now, just so you know they're good).  I haven't...

Clover: a curious tale Screenshots



1 OCTOBER 2009 LEAMINGTON SPA, UK Blitz Arcade, the downloadable division of Blitz Games Studios, today announced its partnership with London-based indie developer Binary Tweed to bring Xbox Live Indie Games smash Clover to PC through the Blitz 1UP initiative.

The new and enhanced version of Clover – now Clover: A Curious Tale – updates the hand-crafted watercolour political platform puzzler and invites players to put their puzzle-solving skills to the test by confronting the mysteries of its fascinating medieval world.

Players must help orphaned teenager Sam find out more about the events surrounding a shock attack on the proud nation of Sanha, which resulted in his mother’s tragic death. Be warned though, even if Sam works out the mysteries that surround him, the answers he receives may challenge his beliefs forever.

Featuring a fully remastered piano score, new puzzles, voice acting, localisation and a plethora of new ambient effects, Clover: A Curious Tale is a relaxing yet immersive experience that will keep players pushing to find out more.

Chris Swan, Business Development Director for Blitz Arcade, says: “We’re delighted to have created a partnership with Binary Tweed for Clover: A Curious Tale. Daniel Jones has crafted a unique counter culture platform adventure game with an engaging and original storyline, an individual visual style and highly engaging audio. It’s a game with fantastic potential for growth on other platforms and we look forward to helping take Clover: A Curious Tale to the next level.”

With an original story line and a new take on gaming conventions like 'lives' and 'health', Clover: A Curious Tale offers an intriguingly modern take on adventuring classics such as Fantastic Dizzy and Maniac Mansion.

Binary Tweed’s Daniel Jones says: “It's fantastic to be working with Blitz Games Studios. As stalwarts of the UK games industry, the Oliver Twins were responsible for many of the games I played growing up, giving the relationship between Binary Tweed and Blitz 1UP a common cultural background. Partnering with a company of such experience is exactly the kind of route that I hoped Xbox Live Indie Games development would make accessible.”

Clover: A Curious Tale capitalises on the strengths of the previous Xbox Live Indie Games version and brings you a whole range of new and unique features:
• No player death, lives or health bars
• Fantastic reworked piano music and all new voice-acted dialogue
• More than 175MB of hand-painted watercolour artwork
• New graphics and effects and an unlockable artwork gallery
• Improved animation
• New intro, endings, extra puzzles and additional characters
• New context sensitive controls
