This week on Retro Game Master The Kacho takes on survival horror game Clock Tower.
Clock Tower was released for the Super NES in 1995 and later as a port for the Playstation. Loosely based on Dario Argento's movie Creepers, Clock Tower is a point-and-click game that has players controlling the movements of orphan Jennifer Simpson as she tries to remain calm and evade her deadly stalker, the Scissorman. The game, considered one of the scariest made for the Super NES, has multiple endings.
The show goes live only on Kotaku at 8 p.m. eastern this Thursday, followed by more weekly episodes "airing" on Kotaku at the same time and day through September. And unlike with television, these episodes will stick around on our site so you can watch them at your own leisure.
Game Center CX produced 15 seasons of gaming content in Japan, with Shinya Arino playing through dozens of Famicom, Super Famicom, PC Engine and Mega Drive games. These first U.S. airings of the episodes includes English captions for Arino and English dubbing for his off-camera announcer.
