In celebration of PAX Aus, Clicker, a two man indie development team from Melbourne, has soft launched their newest title Game of Watchcraft: Spawn of Squishy for Australian players. The game is a ‘demake’ of everyone’s favourite MMO (take a guess which one) reimagined as a 1980’s LCD portable game console and made playable on a 2013 portable game console: the iPad.
Complete quests! Fight the boss! Level up! Complete more quests! Fight the boss again! Did we mention that you level up? Game of Watchcraft is the new gaming sensation sweeping the nation. Gamers are losing hours, weeks, spouses and careers, enthralled by its deep world, immersive graphics and repetitive action. Can you survive its addictive appeal?
Take on the role of Squishy, a priest with a never-ending mission to collect stuff, kill innocent goblins and fight creatures substantially bigger than him. It’s just that simple.
As fans and aficionados of retro LCD consoles, such as the Game and Watch, Clicker are keeping the fire burning for this lost format and bringing it up to date with crisp HD visuals, Game Center leaderboards and achievements. The game will also feature authentic retro audio, using almost a whole octave to bring you that sweet old school feel. The game is the first in the studio’s LCDemakes series, taking the essence of modern day gaming hits and translating that through the design constraints of LCD consoles.
Game of Watchcraft: Spawn of Squishy can be found on the Australian App Store and is coming to the rest of the world on August 14, 2013. For more information, visit the official site and Facebook page. Check out the trailer below and watch the game.
