Doc Clock Coming To PlayStation Store

Blog Banner

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-travelling 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!

Don’t just take our word for it though, check out what some of the critics with hands on experience have been saying about ‘Doc Clock: The Toasted Sandwich of Time’

  • GameZebo – 4/5 Stars “Doc Clock is really clever stuff, bursting with personality and neat ideas”

FYI everyone, Henry is going to pop on to respond but, as he is based in New Zealand, it might not be for a few hours. Get your questions in now and I’m sure he’ll answer as many as he can.

Looks Epic!!!

Will it have a PS VITA port??

That would be very handy and superb.

Hey Guys, thank you for the support we’re really excited to be joining the PlayStation Community!

‘Doc Clock: The Toasted Sandwich of Time’ will be our first game to launch on PSN, really looking forward to hearing everyone’s feedback once it’s live.

@DrSHREEVEERA – We haven’t gotten as far as building a PS Vita version of the game yet but it’s absolutely something we’d like to consider, watch this space!

Sounds interesting. Will there be a trial version? I usually like to try games out first, then see what I think of them. There’s only so much you can get from trailers and screenshots.

Henry Lane 29 March, 2012 @ 12:32 am   10

Hey ShadowGandalf, the game won’t be releasing with a trial version I’m sorry, but there are a number of enjoyable gameplay videos worth watching to give you a solid idea of what the game is like.

Totalbiscuit’s video on youtube (Linked above in the Critic Reviews) is a personal favourite of mine.

Just watched the Cynical Brit vid. It’s definitely bumped my interest up. Gameplay vids are better than trailers for getting information on what a game is like. Almost as good as a trial…. ALMOST… lol

I’ll keep tracking this games progress. Any rough idea of a release date? weeks? months? or can’t say?

    Henry Lane 29 March, 2012 @ 3:26 am    

    We’re currently aiming to release ‘Doc Clock: The Toasted Sandwich of Time’ in both EU and USA within the next few weeks to a month. Our priority is to ensure the game is as ready as possible before release in order to give players the best experience we can.
