Download of the Week: The Clockwork Man

The Ubuntu Software Center has been filling up with new games recently, and I’d like to highlight another one of those this week.

Meet ‘The Clockwork Man’.

The Clockwork Man is an artistic, hidden object game set in the Victorian Era with a strongSteampunk vibe.

The Clockwork Man - Hidden Object Game

Hidden Object Game

In The Clockwork Man, you travel the world searching for the parts necessary to construct the world’s greatest invention. To reach this goal, however, you must first find collections of items to gain information from in-game characters, fix devices, or solve puzzles to journey on.

If you run into trouble finding a particular piece of a collection, don’t worry, your faithful sidekick Sprocket will help. Use him wisely though, as he must recharge from time to time.

The artwork in the game is amazing, and it is easy to get lost in it; The game boast literally hundreds of hand-painted items. The background music used is also soothing and very well done, which is a pleasant surprise not found in many Linux offerings.

The Clockwork Man is available in both Ubuntu Maverick and Natty for $14.99USD. For more information, you may visit the game’s official site.
