CLOVER: A CURIOUS TALE PART OF MICROSOFT’S DEAL OF THE WEEK ST PATRICK’S DAY PROMOTION

15 MARCH 2010 LEAMINGTON SPA, UK Blitz 1UP and Binary Tweed are extremely excited that Clover: A Curious Tale is in Microsoft’s Deal of the Week promotion to celebrate St Patrick’s Day.

So for this week only (ending on Friday 18 March), Xbox Live Gold Members can snap Clover: A Curious Tale up for a mere 200 MS points on XBLIG, thanks to the Irish love of the shamrock (a type of white clover...).

Clover: A Curious Tale is the enhanced version of the XBLIG political platform puzzler. Rendered in hand-crafted watercolour and featuring a gorgeous piano score, Clover Redux tasks the players with solving mysteries through both exploration and engaging with a range of fully voice-acted characters.

“It’s great to see quality Indie devs getting recognition on the Xbox Dashboard,” says Blitz 1UP Producer Neil Holmes.“We never need much of an excuse to celebrate St Patrick’s Day, but this year we’ll be celebrating twice as hard thanks to this fantastic promotion! So why not put on something green, pour yourself a glass or two of your favourite Irish beverage and treat yourself to a charming game of Clover this St. Patrick’s day.”
