Clover developer Binary Tweed has told Digital Spy that the Xbox Live Community Games market is too small to be “financially viable”, and that the service’s only use is as an “arena for proving concepts”.
“It’s a shame to say that Clover has not sold as many copies as we’d hoped for. As it stands, through Community Games alone, we definitely won’t recoup costs,” said company boss Daniel Jones.
“Frustratingly enough, the critical reception to the game has been good. The size of the XBLCG market is prohibitively small to be financially viable, so I can only see it being of use to Binary Tweed as an arena for proving concepts.”
Whoops. More through there. Thanks, GI.

Binary Tweed has put out a trailer for Clover. It’s expected to arrive on Xbox 360 Community Games soon and will run you 400 MS Points ($5.00).
Daniel “Deejay” Jones said on the company blog that the game would be out by now if not for a “framework bug in Microsoft’s XNA”, and what he considers “a flawed approvals process”.
We’re a bit thrown as to why the protagonist keeps his hands in his pockets, even while jumping, but any game that gives you to option to “pick up xxx scrumpy cider” is alright with us.
Trailer’s rather pretty and has sad music.
Have a watch.

UK developer Binary Tweed is working on Clover, a new puzzler for Microsoft’s XBLA that features platforming and political themes.
“The game is set in a medieval world where a ruling monarchy co-exists with a welfare state. Recently orphaned hero Sam travels around collecting stuff, solving logic problems and chatting to other characters,” writes EG.
“Clover is a game about artwork and plot; so much so that we’re struggling to fit everything within the size limit,” Binary Tweed boss Daniel Jones said.
“We wanted to make a game that has the artistic charm to appeal to a broad audience, while exploring issues that communicate to adult gamers.”
