Cloning Clyde Gets Steam Release Date

Unlimited Clones Available on Steam

Cloning Clyde, the quirky action-adventure platforming game from indie studios NinjaBee and Bacon Wrapped Games will make its PC debut Tuesday, March 15, on Steam. The game will be available for purchase for 4.99 USD (£3.99 / €4.99).

The new version, updated for Steam, includes prominent new features.

"We set out to make Cloning Clyde a perfect fit on Steam," said John Nielson, founder of Bacon Wrapped Games. "So we updated the game by adding new features like Steam Achievements and Stats. We reworked game's achievement set, adding 13 new achievements to the existing 12, making a total of 25 achievements that Steam users can unlock in-game."

A side-scrolling platformer, Cloning Clyde stars an unfortunate hero with multiplying problems. Clyde is the victim of a cloning experiment gone wrong who awakes to find himself trapped in a fortress-like cloning facility.

Players control Clyde and his clone brothers, switching between bodies to solve puzzles and find their way to safety. Though, occasionally players must cross-clone Clyde with monkeys, frogs, barrels of TNT, etc. to overcome obstacles - all while fighting past exploding mutant chickens and security robots.

Cloning Clyde was first released as an Xbox Live Arcade exclusive title in July of 2006 and quickly became a fan favorite among XBLA gamers. The game's popularity led to its induction to XBLA's "Arcade Hits" collection last year.
