1.1 Update is OUT NOW!

Greetings Everyone!

Christmas is almost here and we’ve got a new update for you that includes new gameplay additions, improvements, balancing and bug-fixing! We’d like to thank all of you who helped us to improve the game by providing your valuable feedback.

Check out the patch notes below to see what this update brings you:

  • Added "Year Item" that recovers 1 year of life and that allows to guide the player on the map.
  • Alexander ages 30% faster, but is well compensated with the number of items that recover life.
  • The enemies now die in one fell swoop and they give you 5 items that recover life.
  • Added items that recover life by breaking the vases of level 2.
  • The puzzles were simplified for better feeling and are used more sporadically.
  • The syringes of stamina have been eliminated.
  • The magnetic shield was removed based on players feedback.
  • Loading time has substantially improved.
  • Physics boxes were eliminated.
  • The effect of the shadow is introduced in the second level since it is where it is most occupied and we do not saturate the player with information in the first level.
  • General gameplay improvements.

Feel free to share your comments and thoughts below about what changes you would like to see next.

Lastly, we’d like to thank each one of you for supporting us so far, and share our wishes for a happy New Year!

About This Game

In The Watchmaker, a puzzle-adventure game, players take on the role of Alexander. In his steampunk world of giant clock mechanisms, Alexander’s routine involves repairing his precious clock tower every day, adjusting its mechanisms, oiling the gears and polishing everything down to the smallest piece. For years, this is the only life he has known.

But one day Alexander is awakened by a mysterious voice. This disembodied voice alerts him that something has gone wrong: someone, some unknown being, has sabotaged his beautiful tower. With the clock not working properly, time has gone mad. Consequently, Alexander starts ageing abnormally quickly, leaving him only a handful of time to repair the damage.

Guided by the mysterious voice and armed with a magnetic glove and the ability to control time, he must search the halls and arcades of the tower in search of the saboteur. Various obstacles, enemies and riddles buried in the clock’s intricate mechanisms stand in his way. But Alexander must push on to save the clock and restore time to its natural rhythm, all while gradually uncovering the mysteries of the tower and its even stranger past.
