Pencil Test Studios, an indie developer featuring talent from titles such as Earthworm Jim and The Neverhood, launched a Kickstarter campaign a while back for an odd title called Armikrog. Continuing the style of The Neverhood, Armikrog would be a point-and-click adventure game animated entirely by hand using claymation. The game would be full of zany characters, hilarious dialogue, and mind-bending puzzles.
Well, I guess I should stop saying "would" and start saying "will", because Armikrog has reached its Kickstarter goal of $900,000. In fact, it even went above and beyond all the way up $974,578, reaching the stretch goal supporters had been clamoring for, a Wii U release!
So, it is with a happy heart that I can now say, Armikrog will be launching in July 2014 on PC, iOS, Linux, and Wii U. Who else is looking forward to this wacky adventure?
