Armikrog (stylized as “Armikrog.”) is a point-and-click adventure game by Doug TenNapel in partnership with Pencil Test Studios and Versus Evil for Microsoft Windows, OS X, Linux, PlayStation 4 and Wii U. It is a spiritual successor to The Neverhood, and is developed by many members of the same team. Like The Neverhood, Armikrog uses clay animation. The game centers around Tommynaut (Michael J. Nelson), a space explorer who crash-lands on a strange planet and ends up locked inside a fortress called Armikrog, along with Beak-Beak (Rob Paulsen), his blind, talking dog.
Mike Dietz and Ed Schofield, founders of Pencil Test Studios, teamed up with Doug TenNapel, with whom they worked on Earthworm Jim and The Neverhood, to use Kickstarter to crowdfund Armikrog. The Kickstarter’s goal of $900,000, and stretch goal of $950,000 for a Wii U version were exceeded when the funding ended on June 27, 2013.
The game will also have a voice cast featuring Michael J. Nelson as Tommynaut and Rob Paulsen as Beak-Beak. Jon Heder, Veronica Belmont and Scott Kurtz will also lend their voices to the game, but their roles are currently unknown.
