Clockwork Watch Omnibus #1
Technological and social change is in the air – human-clockwork hybridisation is the talk of the town; the unwise employment of science has led to amazement and outcry. This is the amazing Steampunk world of Clockwork Watch.
This omnibus edition features the first three books – The Arrival, Breakaway, and Countenance, with the first 8-pages of Evolution “The Alchemists Tale“, which was published in 2017. The package includes co-created newspaper articles that formed the interactive stories spanning 6 years of participatory fun at immersive live events.
The story starts in The Arrival, and is told through the eyes of Janav Ranbir, an 8 year old Indian boy who comes to England with his parents at the invitation of Queen Victoria. In The Arrival, the first novel, we follow Janav’s father – Chan Ranbir – a leading kinetic engineer and mastermind of a new technology powering the production of Clockwork Servants.
Breakaway is set twenty years since the events of The Arrival, at a time when Great Britain has gone through an astounding transformation. Clockwork servants are all the rage – but not in the way the government planned.
Unemployment, Clockwork prostitution and anti-Clock violence is at an all-time high. And at its crackling centre, a bitter and angry Janav Ranbir wants to tear it all down. Employed by a new government organisation designed to police Clocks, Janav starts on a path of destruction against the mechanical servants.
Countenance brings together the two story arcs, pitching Janav against Ervin in an explosive battle for the future of mankind.
The Clockwork Watch narrative has been spread across several graphic novels, live events, freeform role-play, a newspaper, and a co-created story world, where participants have contributed their own respective stories on an online portal.
This beautifully packaged book is a must for collectors, readers, practitioners or fans of Steampunk culture.
