Clockwork Tales: of Glass and Ink

Clockwork Tales: Of Glass and Ink initially released on Steam in August of 2013. Seems like quite a while ago at this point, but now the title is ready to make the jump over to Xbox One.

The developers of the point and click adventure, Artifex Mundi, have yet to reveal an exact date. Instead, alongside the launch of a new Xbox One trailer, they just inform us that it is indeed coming “soon”. For those not in the know, Artifex Mundi describes Clockwork Tales: Of Glass and Ink as follows:

Clockwork Tales: Of Glass and Ink is an adventure game in the steampunk genre. It is a detective drama featuring action elements such espionage, monster battles and even hang-gliding! A continuing string of strange earthquakes are causing the world’s cities to crumble to ruin. Dr. Ambrose Ink—one of the foremost minds of the technological revolution—hopes to expose the underlying cause of this supernatural phenomenon. His research leads him to Hochwald, a town nestled high in the mountains near the mysterious Barber family castle. Yet, shortly after arriving at the estate, Dr. Ink disappears. It’s up to Dr. Ink’s longtime friend and confidante, Agent Evangeline Glass to save Dr. Ink and reveal what is causing the earthquakes. With only a mechanical raven to guide her, she must storm the well-secured castle and face the General Engineer of Gottland. Agent Glass soon realizes that humans are not the only threat during these strange, revolutionary times…”
