Chronological WiiWare puzzle adventure on the way

This truly is a golden age of time-travelling WiiWare adventures. Not only is Back to the Future set to grace the service soon, Stickmen Studios has just announced its new title, the gloriously named Doc Clock and the Toasted Sandwich of Time

A side-scrolling adventure puzzle game with a promising invention system, Doc Clock blends elements of Super Scribblenauts and Banjo Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts amongst others, hopefully creating something grand in the process. There's a press release, screenshots and trailer all toasted neatly below.

Doc ClockTM: The Toasted Sandwich of Time - A freewheeling time travel adventure to test imagination and skill

Single player game for WildTangent, Steam, OnLive, and Nintendo WiiWareTM

CHRISTCHURCH, New Zealand - September 14, 2010 – Stickmen Studios, a pioneering company creating casual games for the leading consoles and PC, today announced its next original title, Doc ClockTM: The Toasted Sandwich of Time.

Lead kooky inventor Doc Clock and his contemptuous robot, Sack, on their first awesome adventure through time to save Doc’s beloved cat from a prickly fate. Test your creative ability by devising ingenious inventions to overcome improbable obstacles. Then push your piloting skills to the limit as you attempt to steer your crazy contraptions through an insane world of spiky pits, icy chasms and erupting volcanoes, all dominated by technophobic hippy robots.

“Doc Clock: The Toasted Sandwich of Time is a creative quest for all ages, suitable for anyone who enjoys compelling problem-solving challenges and comical encounters,” said Wil McLellan, CEO of Stickmen Studios.

The strongest features of Doc ClockTM: The Toasted Sandwich of Time include:
INFINITE POSSIBILITIES… Invent almost anything from the objects you discover – it all bolts together to work in whichever way you decide;
TAKE CONTROL… You’ve built it, but can you drive it? Skill and co-ordination are required to navigate the challenges ahead;
PLAY WITH TIME… Instantly and easily rewind time to undo your calamitous mishaps using Doc Clock’s amazing Time Slider;
TROPHY COLLECTING… Prove your awesomeness by unlocking achievements such as ‘Headhunter’ and ‘Rocketman’;
BITING BACKCHAT… Sidekick Sack’s wisecracks will keep you smiling throughout your journey. He’s more annoying than your big brother.
Pricing for the game will be announced in the coming weeks.

Cheetahman had to go and draw my attention to the fact that it's from Stickmen Studios, thereby sucking any potential joy I might have gotten from this announcement.

Well, the concept and presentation look like "A" material to me already. Stickmen Studios would have to ruinously fumble the execution to make this anywhere near as bad as their previous WiiWare output.

Love the title, but the trailer looks pretty bad. Couple that with people's concerns about the developer (who I've somehow managed to remain completely ignorant of until just now), and this game's an automatic "pass."

the concept looks interesting enough to keep me on the "wait for hype until reviews" list.
