The Last Clockwinder, winner of Best Game of 2022 in our annual Best of awards, has taken the gaming world by storm. Developed by Pontoco Games, this time-looping puzzle game was inspired and created by the unlikely source of knitting.
Players journey through The Last Clockwinder’s vibrant pixel art environment while using mysterious powers to recreate broken time loops in order to restore power and defeat their enemies. As they progress further into the story, players must maneuver complex puzzles with tricks up their sleeve as well as employ quick reflexes against formidable foes all along the way. Knowing how to manipulate a knitter’s yarn path ultimately also helps them unravel its many secrets.
Atmospheric music and soundscapes add feeling at each twist and turn throughout six distinct chapters that take players from planetariums to eternal gardens filled with strange biomes waiting for discovery. Scored across three dimensions for extra immersive depth on any compatible platform, it can even be played in virtual reality settings if desired! With stunning visuals layering over elegant gameplay mechanics, it’s no surprise why critics are raving about The Last Clockwinder: It takes a creative approach to storytelling backed up by solid puzzle design – all thanks to Pontoco Games’ unique idea inspired by an age-old hobby like knitting!
