Size Five Games is back with its signature comedy adventure stars Ben and Dan. The comeback vehicle, Lair of the Clockwork God will release later this year.
You haven’t really played indie adventure games until you’ve played Size Five Games’ Ben There, Dan That! and Time Gentlemen, Please!, and now you definitely haven’t played indie adventure games, because the next game in the series is not out yet. It’s called Lair of the Clockwork God, and it’s going to be out later this year.
The game has a release date of 31st August 2019, and it will release exclusively on PC. Although it stars recurring characters Ben and Dan, the game is described as a standalone adventure. Have a look at the game on Steam here.

Here’s how the UK-based developer describes the game:
Ben is a die-hard, old-school LucasArts Adventure fan. His feet never leave the floor, and he’s happiest collecting any old junk he can lay his hands on, in the hopes of combining it all together to solve a satisfying puzzle. His cohort and sidekick Dan has decided there’s no money to be made in Adventure Games any more, so he’s going to be an indie darling platformer instead.
Lair of the Clockwork God sees you switching between both characters and using their unique abilities together in a race-against-time effort to stop all the Apocalypses happening simultaneously by teaching an old computer about feelings.
Ah, classic adventure games. Reminds one of Beneath a Steel Sky, and its upcoming sequel Beyond a Steel Sky. What’s that? You’re more of a platformer person? Maybe you’ll prefer Super Meat Boy Forever, then?
