Clock Tower, a survival horror point-and-click adventure game released in 1995 exclusively in Japan, is finally making its way to the West next year. WayForward, the renowned studio behind the Shantae series and DuckTales remaster, will bring the game to English-speaking audiences in 2024.
Publisher Limited Run Games made the announcement during their recent showcase, where they also revealed a PC port of the Gex Trilogy. The port will include an English translation, new animations, motion-comic cutscenes, and an animated opening created by Mariel Cartwright, the project’s creative lead.
In Clock Tower, players take on the role of Jennifer Simpson, a young woman who must navigate a vast manor while avoiding a deranged killer, Scissorman. As Simpson, players have no weapons to defend themselves and must rely on finding hiding spots and traps throughout the house. The port will be available in five languages and feature save states for convenience.
Originally developed for the Super Famicon by Human Entertainment and directed by Hifumi Kono, Clock Tower received several sequels, one of which was released in Europe as “Clock Tower” for the PlayStation.
The modernized port of Clock Tower will be launched on PC through Steam in early 2024, as well as on Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One.
