Clive N' Wrench Get A Makeover

Postby RareAware » Thu Jul 30, 2015 1:34 am

Some may remember the failed kickstarter for a platformer called Clive N' Wrench. The character models have been redesigned and look much better than before. I didn't back this game, but might do so if they try again.

Gameplay looked TERRIBLE and some areas where a carbon copy of banjo kazooie. It failed for a reason.

It still looks like a mediocre 3D platformer game from the sixth-generation era that flooded the market back then.

It's not on the same level as Yooka-Laylee, but it does interest me enough to keep an eye on it. With time and improvements, they might be able to produce a decent platformer. My hopes aren't sky high, but I'm rooting for them. :)

I know they're just fans who want to pay homage to a game they loved, but...it just looks too much like a cheap Chinese knock off title to me. :? It's definitely better than it was, but I'm still not interested in it.

I could change my mind if they release compelling gameplay videos.

It didn't really appeal to me due to the character designs and the overall quality (from what I've seen so far). But I've got to say: These guys are tough and keep going, no matter how many backlashes they get. If that's not the spirit... And the model looks much better and expressive now - even if it still needs some fine tuning :)

I don't like the name though...

New video: https://youtu.be/UictHnv8pk8

It's the level seen in that pic in the first post of this thread, and there are some changes like a double jump.

I hope the jumping is as presice as this and (0:43) make it look. That would make the game really good and a lot of fun.

I'm not sure what's the point of the monkey. So far he makes the player glide but it doesn't seem like something the rabbit couldn't do by himself. The rabbit also uses the monkey to attack when spinning in the air, but it doesn't look safe for the monkey at all.

The characters look waaaaaaaaaay better but the monkey looks like a doll or something.

Good to see them evolving like this, I mean as we have seen banjo wasn't a bear at first and a significant amount of changes were made to reach banjo's quality. I guess that if they have the time and resources to polish it more they might have something good to show.

Does anybody know where to get the old demo/alpha? From before the recent redesign?

I hate to bump an old-ish thread, but I thought someone should mention the character redesigns are being done by Luigi Lucarelli, a member of this very forum!

Despite the negative criticisms that this has gotten by earlier posters, I really like Clive 'n Wrench and think it's going to be an excellent game. I honestly prefer it over Yooka Laylee, which I think is more of a Banjo Kazooie knock-off. One of the reasons I prefer Clive 'n Wrench is because the developer started with nothing, never received funding, yet has persevered and made improvements every step of the way and didn't quit because of negative feedback. Whereas Playtonic slaps together a quick demo and has millions of dollars handed to them on a silver platter. I always saw crowd funding as a place where anyone can have a chance at raising money for their dream project, but instead it seems to only feed money to those who could easily, imho, get the money through traditional investment paths. And the poor little guy who needs the funds can't ever seem to get it.
