Since its launch in 1996 The Neverhood's heartfelt comedy and unique artistic style has continued to win the hearts of fans around the globe, creating one of gaming's most long lasting and dedicated followings. Through the successful efforts by many of such fans, this game was funded via kickstarter on June 22, 2013. Fans will once again get what they have been dreaming about for years and that is to immerse themselves in another world made of clay. Some have likened this new game as The Neverhood's "spiritual successor" - a clay and puppet animated adventure game called ARMIKROG.
The founders of Pencil Test Studios, Mike Dietz and Ed Schofield (also from Earthworm Jim and The Neverhood), have reassembled much of the original Neverhood team to develop ARMIKROG using the Unity engine for PC, MAC and LINUX. In addition, they'll also be using puppet fabricators, sculptors, animators and lots and lots of clay! The team had set a goal of US$900,000.00 through crowd funding site Kickstarter and the fans responded. "While our funding goal is considerably less than The Neverhood cost to produce in 1997, it is still our biggest hurdle, " said TenNapel. " We'll be using many of the same animation, modelling, sculpting, set building and clay & puppet fabrication methods we've used before-keeping the overall game design scalable so that we can create a fun and exciting experience within our targeted funding goal, but still have the flexibility to expand, should the opportunity present itself. "ARMIKROG will be DRM-free for PC (WINDOWS), MAC OSX, Nintendo WiiU and LINUX, and available through a variety of digital distribution sites.
Though Armikrog was successfully funded on Kickstarter, but you can still pick up copies of the game at:
As many people had issue with amazon or were unable to secure the financing before the end of kickstarter, we are now offering payments via paypal. These levels can be found on armikrog.com, but will be offered in a limited supply, so act fast. I must emphasize that you must act fast on these paypal - post kickstarter tiers as they are limited supply and once they run out, they are gone.
