Check out the latest gameplay trailer above and details below via the press release.
Clive ‘N’ Wrench is a brilliantly crafted 3D platforming paradise full of challenges, collectables, and charismatic characters. Starring Clive the rabbit and best friend Wrench, the monkey on his back, players will jump, roll, hover, and spin their way through time and space in a magical 1950’s refrigerator, on a heroic quest to thwart the tyrannical Dr Daucus.
Players will adventure through the prehistoric ice age in Iceceratops, to ancient Egypt in Tempus Tombs, and even across the Wild West in 11 distinct levels each with its own boss battles with varying difficulties. Clive ‘N’ Wrench has been tailored for both experienced players and newcomers alike.
Inspired by genre classics like Spyro the Dragon and Jak & Daxter, Clive ‘N’ Wrench began its journey back in 2011 by sole developer and superfan, Rob Wass. Off the back of designing maps for Epic Games’ Unreal Tournament and creating entire towns in Rockstar’s early 3D GTA’s (III, Vice City and San Andreas), Rob has used his industry knowledge and love for 3D platformers to shape the look, feel and animation of each move in the game’s diverse skill set.
Numskull Games will release Clive ‘N’ Wrench on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, and PlayStation 4, with a digital edition available on PC (Steam). A Physical Standard and Collector’s Edition will also be available for players to purchase, featuring the game’s soundtrack, exclusive character cards, fridge magnet and a full colour manual.

All physical Standard editions also feature a mini-booklet which includes a breakdown of the duo’s special moves, a nostalgic throwback to classic 3D platformers!
“Clive ‘N’ Wrench has been a huge part of my life over the past 10 years,” commented Game Creator and Lead Developer, Rob Wass. “This project has been a real labour of love for me. I’m beyond excited for everyone to get their hands on Clive ‘N’ Wrench when it launches early next year.”
