Fat Pebble chose to make Clay Ham completely out of modeling clay. Do you know how much work that represents? Clearly they have invested a lot of love and labor in this game. Fat Pebble won’t reveal the launch date yet. You can keep track of Clay Jam’s progress at Fat Pebble’s site:
“Clay Jam is a family-friendly action game set in a world made entirely of modelling clay. The once-beautiful land of Wobble Bottom has been ravaged by the fearsome Bully Beasts. The Clay Hills have been sucked dry and the Squashy Monsters all enslaved. This world needs a hero – someone strong, someone stony, someone who can roll…
Behold! Fat Pebble – the first ever pebble superhero (*)!
Use your finger to gouge grooves in the ground and guide Fat Pebble down five fantastical hills. Squash as many monsters as you can while avoiding anything that’s larger than you. As you squash things, you grow – Katamari-style – making you go faster and letting you crush bigger and bigger things.
At the bottom of each hill lurks a unique, terrible Bully Beast. By growing as big as you can and building up your speed, you’ll knock the Beast flying – the further you can fling the demon, the closer to freedom you’ll take Wobble Bottom and all its inhabitants.”
