90s platformer Glover is coming to Steam, and it’s out next month.
The game is being developed by Puko Interactive LLC, which now owns the license. Glover was first developed by Interactive Studios and published by Hasbro in 1998 for Nintendo 64 and 1999 for PlayStation.
The PC version of the game will release on April 20, 2022.
According to its developer, the game is “completely redone from the original source code (N64 version of the game), and improved for modern PCs.”
It’s not currently known whether Glover will come to other platforms.
A post on the Glover Steam page reads: “Tentative release date is April 20, 2022. Currently working implementing Achievements and Trading Cards. Once we finish that, it is all systems go!
“It’s down to Glover, one of the magical gloves, to find the crystals, now disguised as rubber balls and return them safely to the castle. Guide Glover and the balls through seven magical worlds full of puzzles and hidden surprises. Watch out! The evil glove is lurking in the shadows, and he’ll stop at nothing to foil Glover’s attempts at restoring peace.”
A sequel to Glover, Glover 2 was planned but was never released.
Piko Interactive, the company that now owns the license, has claimed in the past that they would like to release a completed version of Glover 2, as the game was seemingly close to completion when it was cancelled.
At the time, Glover received positive reviews, with the N64 version receiving a 7/10 from Edge magazine. The PlayStation version was very poorly reviewed, however, earning just a 2.1 from IGN. This was largely down to poor performance and graphics that looked significantly worse than its N64 counterpart.
