Ayo the Clown 2.5D platformer coming this Spring for Linux, Mac, and Windows PC. Thanks to the creativity of indie game studio Cloud M1. Which will work its way onto Steam soon.

The clown themed 2.5D platformer Ayo the Clown is due to release in Spring 2021. All due to a successful Kickstarter back in the fall of 2020. Getting ready to let players help Ayo the Clown as he embarks on a wacky fun filled adventure. Actually, his goal is to get his dog back.

On this crazy adventure, you play as Ayo, your not so average clown, in search of his dog. He also happens to be his best friend, Bo, who somehow disappears. What happened to Bo? Will they ever juggle together in the park again? Or create that circus act they’ve always planned?

Ayo the Clown’s journey will take him across eight regions from the lush Hills. While face off in the wacky Water World and all the way to sickeningly sweet Candy Land. Like all good adventures, you won’t be all on your own. Ayo’s world is full of friendly people and interesting creatures that are willing to help. But beware of the fiendish foes who are out to cause you harm. Pick up a water balloon, balloon sword, or toy hammer. You can also grab a dinosaur, helicopter, and tank (boy, that escalated). Everything a healthy clown needs to survive in the great outdoors, as you go about your quest. Plus the gameplay looks stunning. Even better played on Linux of course, but it’s also coming to Mac and Windows PC.
