Armikrog, the "spiritual successor" to The Neverhood, needs your help to become a reality! The Kickstarter project has just gone up today, and needs at least $900,000. So, what's Armikrog about? In this point-and-click claymation adventure game by Doug TenNapel and buddies from The Neverhood and Earthworm Jim (Mike Deitz and Ed Schofield), you're an explorer named Tommynaut. He and his blind alien dog, Beak-Beak, have crash landed somewhere strange and have ended up in a fortress called Armikrog. That's all we know so far! Armikrog will also feature the voice talents of Michael J. Nelson (Rifftrax, Mystery Science Theater 3000), Veronica Belmont (Tekzilla), Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite, Blades of Glory, Surf's Up), Rob Paulsen (Pinky and the Brain, Animaniacs, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), and Scott Kurtz (Player vs. Player webcomic). And here's the part I know all of you are most antsy about. Rewards (most tiers come with previous reward tiers)!: $5: Armikrog desktop wallpaper $20: (Early Explorer) Digital download of Armikrog $25: Digital download of Armikrog $30: 100 page PDF of Armikrog concept art, digital download sampler of 3 songs from Armikrog $35: 24 page PDF of Armikrog comic book, digital download of "making-of" mini documentary $50: 50 page PDF of animation sketches, notes, exposure sheets, pencil test drawings, and more; digital download of deluxe "making-of" mini documentary $60: Digital download of game footage with audio commentary, dance mixes of Armikrog songs $75: 100 page digital download of Armikrog "Astronaut Handbook", printed physical version of Armikrog comic book $90: Physical boxed version of Armikrog And a lot more! Armikrog is looking amazing already and I, personally, can't wait to finally play it. I'm definitely going to pledge to this Kickstarter project! Are you?
Leah posted a article in Industry NewsThe Neverhood came out over 16 years ago. While it did receive a sequel for the PS1 (Skullmonkeys) that was also claymation, it was a platformer rather than an adventure game. A true sequel for The Neverhood (or any sort of game to add to the series) still isn't in sight, but we may be getting a new adventure game from Doug TenNapel. This exciting bit of info comes from the official Facebook page for The Neverhood, where TenNapel tells fans that he's working on a "full sized, PC and Mac point and click adventure game in clay and puppet animation." He'll be partnering with his Earthworm Jim and The Neverhood buddies, Mike Dietz and Ed Schofield. Terry Taylor will also be creating the music for the game. New characters will be made, but will be in TenNapel's usual art style. Lastly, TenNapel requests something from you. Ideas! What do you want to see in this new point-and-click claymation adventure game? Post on the Facebook page and your comments will definitely be read and considered.
