I LOVE THIS GAME SO MUCH. It was one of the few things that ABSOLUTELY TERRIFIED THE FRICK OUT OF ME. This game is just so scary and one of the games that smartly used the limitations to enhance rather than detract from the experience.

I wonder if there's only the one manga cutscene? But hey, voice acting!

Man, I still remember that shower dripping all these years later.

I might need to pick this one up again.

People are saying the PC version does not support mouse and keyboard which is insane given the PlayStation version did and the SNES version has a patch to support it.

Steam page appears to have been updated to remove the controller required tag. Don't know if anything official has been said yet.

Limited Run Games is disappointing to see, though.

This is legitimately one of the best scary horror games ever made, even as old as it is. The big thing that made it unplayable on SNES is how slow the character moves and how arduous it is trying to move the SNES cursor to click on each object.

I'm on the fence about the Rewind feature because on something like Castlevania Aria of Sorrow, it really declaws any need to get better at the action when you can "oops! rewind! oops! rewind!" every-other minute.... but then Clock Tower isn't an action game. Part of the scare is knowing you will lose a whole run if you die so I hope they have an option to just shut the Rewind off entirely to remove the temptation.

I'm definitely interested in the PS1 features, I'll be keeping an eye on this.

I’d love to have a physical copy and before anyone asks, yes the Switch is région free

Just wish limited run would do… well, longer runs for physical editions. But still, I’ll be happy with my digital copy.
