Pencil Test Studios will be releasing theadventure Armikrog this August. The clay animation styled game is a spiritual successor to The Neverhood. It's currently available to pre-order.
The studio is using "classic sculpting, set building and clay and puppet fabrication" combined with stop-motion animation. They've got a voice cast featuring Jon Heder, Rob Paulsen and Michael J. Nelson.
Pencil Test has partnered up with publisher Versus Evil to bring its stop-motion animated adventure game Armikrog to PC, Mac and Linux in early 2015.
Created by Mike Dietz of Earthworm Jim fame and Ed Schofield, the man behind The Neverhood, Armikrog waslast year to the tune of $974,000.
With just three days left on the Armikrog Kickstarter clock the clay-powered adventure game is in danger of not achieving its goal. Over 13,500 backers have pledged around $667k, but it needs $900k.
The Pencil Test Studios team has also announced plans for a Wii U version. They've also launched another 'Making Of' video to give a peek at how they bring Armikrog to life through 'go-motion'.
Digital and physical add-ons for Pencil Test Studios' Armikrog are now available to backers of the Kickstarter, which seeks $900k with 21 days to go. Over 10,100 have already pledged around $435k.
In order to get the add-ons the studio ask you pledge the additional amount needed to your tier, where you'll then fill out a survey once the campaign ends to select the add-on.
Pencil Test Studios proposes some good ole clay animation adventuring in the stylings of The Neverhood. For that to become a thing again in this harsh HD world of ours, the team is asking for $900k via Kickstarter.
So over 2,600 backers have pledged a little over $131k with 29 days to go. Doug TenNapel, also creator of Earthworm Jim, wants a 'spiritual successor' to The Neverhood, which much of the original team.
