Lair of the Clockwork God, a game that blends together a platformer with a point & click adventure just recently became notably highly rated.

You've probably heard of Steam 250 before, we've linked to it a few times as well. It's a website that pulls in user ratings from Steam, to build an unbiased list of highly rated games. This includes lists like the overall best, most played, trending, per-platform lists and more.

An interesting list I like to keep an eye on is the Hidden Gems. Showing games that are close to 100% on positive ratings but they don't have a large amount of reviews. So it's a list that usually shows really good games that get often overlooked by the masses.

Number one on that list is now Lair of the Clockwork God from Size Five Games (GOG / Steam), which has Linux support and it's a genuinely funny game worth your time so I'm not surprised to see it reviewing well.

From the press release:

"That number one rank is reserved for games with near-universal praise, so it's a delight to get there" said Dan Marshall, Director of Size Five. "We now have over 350 reviews, and out of all of them only one person who didn't really like it, the rest are choc full of glowing praise."

"I've been making indie games for over 15 years now, and releasing Clockwork God has been a real eye-opener for me. It's the toughest, hardest game release I've ever done in an incredibly harsh market conditions, and the hugely positive feedback from fans is what's kept me going."

My wife saw this article's title as I was skimming the GoL headlines this morning, and she said, "Lair of the Clockwork God? What's that book about?"

I said, "It's a game, but it does sound like the title of a good sci-fi novel, doesn't it?"

"It needs to be a book. I want to read it," she said.

Typically I'm not much for platformers or point-and-click adventures. I'm simply not very good in the first case, and I'm always clicking on the wrong bits in the second case; by the time I get to the right bit, all the adventure has gone out of it.

But with a name like "Lair of the Clockwork God," I may just have to give this game a closer look. Wishlisted.
