Nintendo 64 Game Glover Gets Born Again On PC

The cult classic Glover will be getting born again on PC next month. The title was originally released back on October 26, 1998 for the Nintendo 64. The developer behind the remake, Piko Interactive, describes the game as “completely redone from the original source code,” but also “improved for modern PCs.”

The remake will be available for purchase through Steam, GOG, and the Bleem Store on April 20, 2022. As for the release date, Piko told Kotaku that “yes, it will come out on 4/20.” The company explained how the decision was made “because it is a fun/funny date.”

“Finally, the wait is almost over,” Piko announced on Twitter. “The Nintendo 64 era cult classic Glover is coming soon!” The company also released a trailer on YouTube that features about a minute of gameplay.

Glover follows the adventures of an eponymous glove who is on a quest to restore the Crystal Kingdom. The game tasks players with guiding a ball through a series of levels while jumping between moving platforms. Glover was developed by Interactive Studios which produced a number of other games from 1990 until its closure in 2013. The company was apparently planning a sequel, but the project seems to have been scrapped.

“Glover is a puzzle-intensive adventure game made up of six worlds with 30 different levels. You control a charismatic glove that walks on two fingers, slaps harder than Steve Austin, dribbles faster than Scottie Pippen, and plays with a bouncy rubber ball.”

Piko is described as “the leading content provider for retro video game consoles, plug and play consoles, and retro digital distribution platforms.” The company is focused on “bringing the highest quality of new retro video games for our beloved consoles.”

“Piko is a game development and publishing company that concentrates on the development of new games for old consoles. Our consoles of interest include but are not limited to the Nintendo Entertainment System, Super Nintendo Entertainment System, Sega Genesis, and handhelds like the Game Boy Advance, Gameboy Color, and Gameboy.”
