Love survival horror? Love physical editions of games? Limited Run Games have got your back as they reveal a physical collection for Clock Tower: Rewind on Xbox, Switch, PlayStation and PC. 

Clock Tower first released way back in 1985, as it landed on Super Famicom, opening up the survival horror, point and click adventure vibes to the world. It followed Jennifer Simpson, an orphan who is adopted by the wealthy Barrows family that throws her into a terrifying scenario, forcing her to find a way to escape the mansion and evade the killer stalker, Scissorman.

The start of a genre

A game in which the plot and artistic style are inspired by the works of Italian horror film director Dario Argento, most notably Phenomena (1985), it is seen as a big influence on horror games and a pioneer of the survival horror genre.

But very soon we’ll be turning back time with Clock Tower: Rewind, thanks to WayForward and Limited Run’s Carbon Engine. This will be a feature-filled port that includes a new animated intro, opening and ending vocal theme songs, motion-comic cutscenes, creator interview, art gallery, border artwork, save states, and a music player.

Launching as pre-orders on May 31st and staying in place for a month, until June 30th, you’ll be able to get your money in for Clock Tower: Rewind as Limited Run’s physical version becomes available for Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch and PC. 

A physical collection

Limited Run’s physical collection tips its hat to the history and genre-defining aesthetic of Clock Tower. The Collector’s Edition includes a Barrow’s Mansion Clock Tower statuette, an acrylic figure set featuring classic sprite work, a double-sided poster featuring classic Clock Tower art and a new piece from Shintaro Kago, a Dan Barrows stress ball, and other small additions designed with fans of this classic game in mind. Covers for the game case and Collector’s Edition box feature art from Mariel Kinuko Cartwright and Mr. Kasuy.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore. Gamertag is neil363, feel free to add me to your list.
