If you haven’t yet heard of Cletus Clay, you’re missing out on one of the coolest development ideas in recent memory. It may seem like just another 2D platformer at first, but the fact that the entire game world is built with stop-motion clay animation makes it very interesting indeed. Having a shotgun-wielding country hick protagonist also helps.
The devs behind the game recently released a couple of new videos and screenshots to show off all of that pretty clay goodness. You can find a whole whack of the former on their YouTube channel, though this one is probably my favourite:
The unique style of this game makes following its development a rewarding pursuit in itself. If you want more info, check out our interview with the devs or go to the game’s site for little bits of wisdom related to their development process. It’s quite educational.
Needless to say, this one is on my “eagerly anticipated” list. Go go Xbox release!
