The Clock Shop on Midland Road is the prologue of Professor Layton and the Unwound Future.

Plot Edit


Professor Layton and his apprentice Luke are sitting on a bus, chatting about a letter that Layton had received recently. Apparently it is from the Future Luke Triton. It says:


Future Luke writing a letter to the present Professor Layton and Luke.

I hope this letter finds you well. As for me, I am in quite a predicament. You see, the London we know and love has been thrown into absolute chaos. To complicate matters, the calamity I speak of does not take place in your time. This may be difficult to believe, but I am writing to you from 10 years in the future. I know this is a lot to take in, but I'll explain it all soon. For now, I ask that you head to the clock shop on Midland Road in Baldwin. I look forward to seeing you again.
Your student,
Luke Triton
Time Machine Mark II

The failed Time Machine presentation.

Professor Layton seems to believe that this was connected to an event that happened the week before. The event in question is the display of a time machine by the scientist Dr. Alain Stahngun. Stahngun convinces Prime Minister Bill Hawks to take part in the demonstration. Bill Hawks gives an address about Time travel then steps into the time machine which, after starting up, explodes. All of the scientists involved, Stahngun himself, and Hawks all vanish without a trace. Professor Layton and Luke head to a Clock Shop on Midland Road, as directed by the letter that they had received. When they make their way to the back room of the Shop, they find an enormous clock. Cogg, the shop owner, then activates the clock, causing the floor to shake heavily for some reason. When the Professor and Luke run
