With deep world building, compelling narrative, crunchy RPG systems, engaging gameplay, and massive reactivity, I’ve always described @ClockworkGame as the love child of #arcanum and @VBloodlines. pic.twitter.com/qp51n2a24L

Both games highlighted by the Director are famous for their engaging RPG mechanics. He claims Clockwork Revolution will also offer crunchy RPG systems, continuing the legacy of these iconic titles.
Like other RPGs, the game offers a character creation system. While the details of this system are currently unknown, the Director’s inspirations could mean that Clockwork Revolution includes deep character customization.
Previously, it was also revealed that players would encounter time-bending scenarios throughout the first-person RPG. With players being able to travel back in time, choices and interactions will have a massive impact on the overall narrative.
This could lead to the reactivity that the Director mentioned. Chad Moore has previously worked at Troika Games, the developer behind RPGs like The Temple of Elemental Evil.
During its initial reveal, Clockwork Revolution was compared with the Bioshock franchise due to a similar aesthetic. However, the Director clarified that inXile Entertainment is headed in a different direction.
While no release date for the upcoming RPG has been announced, it will be released in due time, as written in the announcement trailer. The game is coming to Xbox Series S|X consoles and PC. Like other first-party Xbox titles, it will also be available on Game Pass at launch.
