has announced today that Doc Clock is coming to Sony's PlayStation Store with details below.
To quote: Yes that's right; the Doc Clock universe will soon be available to everyone from PlayStation Store.
This is your opportunity to join Doc Clock and his super sarcastic robot companion, SACK, on their first time-traveling adventure.
Save Doc Clock's pet cat Franklin from spending the rest of his life as a potted Cactus.
Build incredible inventions, contort the flow of time and navigate a future controlled by armies of laughably dangerous techno-phobic hippy robots.
Now slow down a second... we're talking about a pet cat... spending his life as a potted plant?! Yes! Well, "Catcus" is more accurate; Doc Clock's inventions have been known to have a slightly limited safety track record. And by 'slightly limited' we mean nonexistent.
Needless to say it was Doc Clock's attempt to make the world's most awesome 'Toasted Sandwich Machine' which resulted in Franklin mutating into a very prickly situation!
Everyone experienced in turning their cat into a photosynthetic hedgehog will know the most logical step to remedying the situation is... to build a time travelling machine. Obviously.
Well unfortunately, Doc Clock's safety track record is back in question because, instead of reversing time, he propels himself and SACK thousands of years into the future where the earth is controlled by technology-loathing robots who blame humanity for the planet's deterioration.
Now it's down to you to help Doc Clock and SACK find their way back to their own timeline, and where better to start than with Doc Clock's Incredible Inventions?
Any item that Doc Clock finds in the game can be picked up, twisted and combined with other items to create so many inventions you'll soon be neck-deep in crazy contraptions! Bathtubs, wheels, garden gnomes, propellers - you're only limited by your imagination.
But then what? Well, you jump in and take off, of course! Fly, drive, slide your way through spike-laden forests, icy tundra and volatile volcanoes however you see fit. However, because Doc Clock constructed your invention, for your safety and to limit our liability we responsibly advise you to avoid any interaction with spiked surfaces, water or lava even in small quantities.
So what's new for the PlayStation Network release of 'Doc Clock: The Toasted Sandwich of Time' that you won't be seeing on any other platform?
Well, we don't want to give it all away but a few of the goodies include new abilities, such as lifting items while seated in the time machine; a brand new sandbox level (as a reward for completion); and of course PlayStation Move Motion Controller Support.
What's not new? Well you'll still have SACK berating you at every turn about every move you make and every step you take, because it wouldn't be an adventure without constant cynical criticism from a mechanical backpack!
Besides that keep an eye out because Doc Clock will be available in your region SOON!
