Steam News: Cloning Clyde is on his way!

Steam News: Cloning Clyde is on his way!

If you are a fan of Old School gameplay, and are just as tired as I am over these over hyped, and often boring titles, you should listen up!

One week from today (March 15th), NinjaBee and Bacon Wrapped Games will be releasing Cloning Clyde on Steam!  Why should you care, you ask?  Well, let me break it down for you.

Lately, all I see are big guns, massive explosions, fast cars, and flashy graphics for it all (maybe a mammoth breasted blonde, if the game is really trying to get your attention).  It has been a long time since I have been able to find quality platformers, I thought they were a genre killed off by the 3D Push.  Everybody wants bigger and better, everyone wants photo-realistic environments and human like A.I., right?  Well not me!

I have had enough of the 3D Push, I want some real games, some real challenges.  Luckily, the last few years have been kind, offering titles like Trine, Braid, and the recently released Creavures.  Now, I have another title to get excited over, Cloning Clyde.

The game follows the “Not-so-Bright” Clyde, as he is duped with the promise of a quick twenty, and winds up being a lab rat in a cloning experiment.  Something goes horribly wrong (doesn’t it always?), and only Clyde can round up his other…halves?

Players will splice Clyde with many different things, to create a number of different abilities.  Each ability will allow you to conquer the various obstacles in your path, and to avoid danger.  With 24 themed levels, and 13 exclusive Steam Achievements (25 in total), this is something that will keep you occupied for a while!

Back in February, Lindsey showed us a trailer, and made a couple conclusions in her article that I came to as well.  Primarily, I agree that the gameplay INSTANTLY reminded me of Kid Chameleon, with splicing instead of masks.  I loved that game so much, to this day it is on my favorites list.  If you didn’t have the right costume at the right time, you weren’t going to be able to reach those tokens, I loved the ability to change to whatever you liked best, I lived for the TANK!

Cloning Clyde Escapes

Hey! Who's gonna clean this mess up?!

—————————————————————————————————————————————–

This game looks like a good one, and it is set to be priced at $4.99 USD, so you really can’t go wrong!  I will leave you to drool over the gallery, I am going to look forward to next week!  (Seriously, if we don’t get a reviewer copy, I am totally buying it anyway!)

You can all look forward to hearing what I thought about it! (I expect good things.)

Well, you really can’t go wrong with bacon, now can you?
