Turn Back Time with Clock Tower: Rewind! Physical Editions coming soon to Limited Run Games!

Classic survival horror experiences a revival thanks to the Carbon Engine! 

Apex, North Carolina —May 23rd, 2024— WayForward and Limited Run Games, in conjunction with SUNSOFT, today revealed a physical collection for the highly anticipated Clock Tower: Rewind! Pre-orders for Standard and Collector’s Editions launch on May 31st and run through June 30th, 2024, exclusively on limitedrungames.com. Physical editions will be available for Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4 and 5 and PC.

Initially released for the Super Famicom in 1995, Clock Tower is a survival horror point-and-click adventure game that follows orphan Jennifer Simpson, who is adopted by the wealthy Barrows family that throws her into a terrifying scenario, forcing her to find a way to escape the mansion and evade the killer stalker, Scissorman. Much of Clock Tower’s plot and artistic style are inspired by the works of Italian horror film director Dario Argento, most notably Phenomena (1985). In turn, it is considered an influence on horror games and a pioneer of the survival horror genre. Now, thanks to WayForward and Limited Run’s Carbon Engine, this influential title is finally getting an international release as Clock Tower: Rewind with a feature-filled port that includes a new animated intro, opening and ending vocal theme songs, motion-comic cutscenes, creator interview, art gallery, border artwork, save states, and a music player.

Limited Run’s physical collection tips its hat to the history and genre-defining aesthetic of Clock Tower. The Collector’s Edition includes a Barrow’s Mansion Clock Tower statuette, an acrylic figure set featuring classic sprite work, a double-sided poster featuring classic Clock Tower art and a new piece from Shintaro Kago, a Dan Barrows stress ball, and other small additions designed with fans of this classic game in mind. Covers for the game case and Collector’s Edition box feature art from Mariel Kinuko Cartwright and Mr. Kasuy.
