What is Clockwork Watch: Tick Tock IPA #3?
Ervin, the sentient Clockwork Servant, finally comes of age and finds himself exposed to the harsh realities of the one thing he has longed for – to be human.
Dismembered and smuggled out of England by a mysterious character called The Alchemist, Ervin quickly realizes that the world outside the gates of Hodgson’s Brewery is a cruel place.
Tick Tock IPA #3 is the final part of the Tick Tock IPA trilogy. It’s a story of how a Clockwork Servant became sentient, a development that shook the moral fabric of British Society, Industry, The Church, and The Crown.
It’s a tale of perseverance and determination against the odds, the fight for freedom, and an alternative history of the Victorian era’s first internationally renowned Indian Pale Ale.
Why Should We Pick This Up?
Clockwork Watch is a living story set in a retro-futurist vision of Victorian England. Not only can you just read the book, you can also be the story by getting involved in any one of the immersive and participatory events.
Clockwork Watch is told across variety of graphic novels, interactive promenade theatre, live action role-play, online adventures, an interactive book and a feature film – in short, it’s a Transmedia feast of entertainment that you can actually participate in.
This year the story was played out live at Europe’s biggest Steampunk gathering – Weekend at the Asylum, where it spawned a real newspaper, speakeasy, real-life backstreet, and several surprises.
