A new listing on the 'Coming Soon' section of the Nintendo Switch eShop in Europe has revealed that Clock Simulator will be ticking on over to the console next week.
The game's developer Kool2Play describes Clock Simulator as "one of the most original game concepts on the Switch", rather literally tasking players with taking on the role of a clock. Taking on a clock's main purpose in life, players must advance precisely second by second, focusing their inner rhythm to successfully click once a second.
The concept is, at the very least, intriguing, and user reviews on Steam are currently "very positive". Having said that, with the current discount available on Steam, the Switch version costs more than four times as much - and that's before you consider the free version available on smartphones. If having the game on your Switch is worth the extra cash, though, then this feature list below should give you a good idea of what to expect:
- A unique concept – a clock-based rhythm game: you are the clock
- Controls so simple you could play with your eyes closed
- A variety of play modes and themes ranging from meditative to arcade, all JoyCon friendly
- Option to unlock modes and themes you enjoy – play them at your leisure
- Two competitive multiplayer modes – exclusively on Nintendo Switch
- Controls utilise the steering possibilities provided by Nintendo Switch
According to the eShop listing, the game is planned to release on 10th January for £3.59, taking up just 104MB of space and featuring support across all play modes. You can also backup your save data via the cloud.
