From the creators of the Earthworm Jim and The Neverhood games, comes a ground breaking stop motion clay animated adventure game called Armikrog. Based on characters created by Doug TenNapel, the game follows the adventures of a space explorer named Tommynaut and his blind alien talking dog named Beak-Beak as they crash land on a weird planet and end up locked in a mysterious fortress called Armikrog.
The game is being created using classic sculpting, set building and clay & puppet fabrication methods combined with stop-motion animation. Voiceover talent, including well-known actors Jon Heder (Napoeon Dynamite), Rob Paulsen (Pinky and the Brain) and Michael J. Nelson (Mystery Science Theater 3000) bring Armikrog’s characters to life with tongue-in-cheek humor enhanced by the original soundtrack from American songwriter and record producer Terry Scott Taylor.

A lot of people are comparing this game to The Neverhood, and that's really not fair, because after almost two decades nostalgia is going to play a big factor in how you percieve Armikrog. When the game first released it did have a lot of bugs, but since then the game has been completely smoothed out. The last time I played it I didn't notice any bugs. The puzzles are challenging, as they should be, but still fun. The art is absolutely stunning, and made all the more impressive by the fact that they molded the clay all by hand. Yes, it is a short game, but I think it's well worth the money.
A very straight-forward, point-and-click puzzle game with a fantastic, claymation artstyle and quirky soundtrack. I've been a fan of the universe for many years and was really excited when I heard the announcement for Armikrog. I waited impatiently for its release; pre-ordered and everything. The game was released with quite a few bugs/crashes, but I managed to still really enjoy playing it. My understanding is that it's been patched/updated since its release, but I've yet to play it again since then.
With held breath I was waiting for this title, I was looking for any news on the Armikrog, I followed every trailer and analysed it frame-by-frame. My expectation were high but sadly the end product was a big let down for me. If you wanted to get the next Neverhood look somewhere else because the old magic is gone.
This game is an insane disappointment, mostly because it didn't deliver much in terms of point and click game. While many things got fixed with patches, what won't get fixed is game itself. There are only 3 types of puzzles - maze, pushing things and slider puzzles, that's it. Graphics, while not bad, are little false advertisement, because there are only around 5 minutes of claymation in it, the rest is 3D computer generated except backgrounds, which could look awful on screens bigger than 1080p. As for voice-acting, it's not bad, but again, there are only like 5 minutes of it and only in cut-scenes. Through the whole game, there are 2, maybe 3 jokes made, other than that there is nothing to it other than going from one slider puzzle to another maze. The game is also incredibly short, around 3 hours and that's with forced backtracking that pads out the game by another 30 minutes. Worst offender is cliffhanger ending setting up a sequel, and for game this short it is offensive. Extremely disappointing title for insane price. If you expect something like Neverhood, don't bother at all, because you will be disappointed. Pick it up when on sale.
Armikrog is a unique game, made entirely with Claymation animations which take forever to make, so that's quite intriguing ,it's an adventure point and click game where you control Tommy and Beek Beek, 2 Strange characters set in a unique world full of puzzles and funny creatures , it's very colorful and beautiful and the world setup is quite cool, puzzles are fun and since the world is strange they're quite fun to solve, and often humorous things happen and you need to think in a very funny way sometimes. 90% of the game is claymation so it's very beautiful you'll encounter drawn cutscenes at times but they're still interesting , the voice acting is excellent and makes the world and creatures believable , very fun and entertaining game, if you're a fan of point and click adventure games like me , this is a must buy.
