Clive McMulligan is a 2D retro-inspired action/puzzle/platformer for the PC with challenging arcade style gameplay. When finished the game will have over 70 levels with unique gravity switching mechanics. The game will feature an original soundtrack by 8Bit Weapon (current demo features existing 8Bit Weapon tracks).
When we began work on The Adventures of Clive McMulligan we wanted to recreate the fun and brutal difficulty of action platformers of the 1980's and 1990's, while still creating something that was fresh and new. In homage to these classic games we opted to keep the game very retro feeling in both graphical style as well as gameplay. Early on in development we decided to stray somewhat from the classic platformer genre and introduce a mechanic that allowed the player to flip the characters gravity at will. This gameplay mechanic proved to be very fun and inspired us to create puzzle elements based around it.
